Early in the morning, customers flocked to the Lunar’s bakery to get their daily fix of donuts. Every day, Lunar’s make up to 500 donuts to fill the demands of their eager customers. Princess Lunar, one of the owners of Lunar’s bakery said they always want to show their customers that their donuts are freshly cooked daily.
Their humble beginnings began when Jacinto and Rosalina Lunar invested in a bakery business. They began in the 1980s with a capital of P10,000 to 20,000. Their journey to success wasn’t easy, especially when the pandemic hit. But instead of being demotivated, they became strategic and studied where the customers were. They learned how crucial it was to keep a social media presence and manage an online store.
“Diyan po nagboom ang online. So, wala kaming idea or background when it comes to online kasi focused po kami noon sa mga physical stores,“ Princess shared on GMA’s Pera Paraan.
Their efforts paid off because aside from their physical stores, they are also taking many orders online. It was a huge opportunity for them to open up to more customers from far and wide.
“Ang social media yun po talaga ang nakapagpa-buhay sa amin ngayon eh. Lahat po ng tao nasa online na, “ Erika Mae, a co-owner also shared.
Through hardwork, they now have expanded to ten branches. Lunar’s successful bakery is earning over P150,000 every month.
How to make mojacko milky donut
Prepare the ingredients which include flour, sugar, salt, lard, yeast, and water. Also, have your variety of fillings and powdered milk available.
Make the dough by first adding yeast to the water. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and lard. Add in the yeast mixture. Using a mixer, mix the dough until soft and smooth enough to turn into a ball. Knead and form into mini balls, the preferred size for your donut. Let it rest for 15 to 25 minutes for the dough to rise.
Deep fry the dough until it turns into a golden brown donut. Once cool, you can now start filling it with a variety of jams or spreads. Dust with powdered sugar.
Lunar’s mojacko donuts have four fillings to choose from chocolate, yema, strawberry, and bavarian.
