The best snack.
theres nothing better than hot home made bread straight out of the bread maker,or the oven.i put butter on the hot bread followed by apricot jam.the taste is divine.i don't think shop bought bread is as good as home made,in my opinion. There's no comparison just with the taste alone.and the added bonus is,you know exactly what's in the bread.with shop bread there could be anything in it.
