WS#11: Guapple Pie

Just got back from Easter (Holy Week, we call it) break that was brimming with adventure and new discoveries, from hiking to diving to feasting.


But before I launch into the details, let me first share some Guapple Pie fresh from El Ideal Bakery.


Made from guapples (a large guava variety), this piece of heaven is a great twist from the original (and very American) Apple Pie.  Tastes quite similar down to the cinnamon and the crumble, what makes the difference is the crunchy bite and the slight, distinct guava flavor that compliments rather than drowns in the cinnamon.


An institution and the pride of Silay, El Ideal is always a “must stop” when in Bacolod (or anywhere in Negros Occidental actually), more accessible these days with the Airport now just minutes away.  Certainly a great “pasalubong” (gift) from the city of Silay.

  1. My office mate is from Silay and she prides with El Ideal Bakery. Whenever she goes for a visit, definitely may pasalubong for me! Your guapple pie is making me drool. Have a great week!


  2. Catch EL IDEAL Bakery’s booth at Powerplant Mall fountain area on November 9-15, 2009… Guapple pies will be shipped daily from Silay..
