saklob

saklob - (sak-lób; Caviteño [Tanza, cavite] bread; dw Tag. saklob [face-to-face]) [n.] two sweet breads paired face-to-face.
buddy-buddy, body-body, or double body in Cebuano, Boholano, and Ilonggo
A pair of sweet bread shaped like a thick tongue rolled in desiccated coconut meat. 

I found these saklob breads in four colors at the Kaibigan Bakery along Hugo C. Arce St. of Brgy. Biwas in Tanza, Cavite.

The loaves would spoil fast in two days because of bits of coconut meats coating the bread.


The taste and texture is somewhat like cakey, a dense cake to me.
A perfect terno (pair) for a mug of hot coffee. Also for cold softdrinks (cola or soda).

In Visayas, where it is called buddy-buddy or  double body, it is shaped sometimes as a thick disc or oblong. The Visayan version is somewhat toasted and crisp like cookie.


I found these packs (above) and mounds (below) of saklobs in the Kaibigan Bakery of Brgy. Biwas, Tanza, Cavite. Sold in the retail outlets (Pamilihang Bayan Ng Tanza) at PHP5.00 per pack of 6 pieces.

Saklob is the old Tagalog word for "face-to-face."
