So let us talk about the event.
I am very excited to host my 2nd event~ Bread Mania.Right from simple buttered bread to sandwiches,pizza's,burgers and mouth watering cakes and pastries,i love anything with bread.So here i am announcing my favourite bread Mania
Bread is one of the oldest prepared foods, dating back to the Neolithic era. Bread is often made from a wheat-flour dough that is cultured with yeast, allowed to rise, and finally baked in an oven. Owing to its high levels of gluten (which give the dough sponginess and elasticity),common wheat (also known as bread wheat) is the most common grain used for the preparation of bread, but bread is also made from the flour of other wheat species, rye, barley, maize and oats. usually, but not always, in combination with wheat flour.Bread white is rich in vitamins (A, B1,B2,B3,B9,B12,K), calcium,iron,magnesium,sodium,carbohydrates etc- source: Wikipedia.
