The essential bread
One of the most essential food that Malaysian eat everyday is none other than bread.
Most of the time, we get our sliced bread either from the convenient store or the supermarket.
Popular sliced bread brand in Malaysia are Gardenia, High Five, Mighty White etc.
My personal favorite is the Massimo wholemeal bread.
Do you know how much you spent on bread monthly?
If you have a small family, a loaf of sliced bread can cost you from RM2.30 – RM3.00.
The loaf of store bought bread can last you for 5 days.
If you have a large family, a loaf of bread may last you only 2 days.
Therefore, your monthly budget for bread may ranges from RM30 – RM40!
Is there a cheaper alternative?
Making homemade bread is a good idea, but some of us may not have the time to make the bread dough and bake it in our kitchen oven.
The best and easiest solution is to get a home automatic bread making machine.
