Make bread with stove, this is a must try!
Bread is one recipe Nigerians don’t joke with. I could a remember a time when bakery in my locality went on strike due to the high rise in the price of flour.
I was surprised how people reacted to the situation as though bread was the only food they could survive with.
Peoples’ reaction made me know how much Nigerians value and love bread.
You don’t talk of breakfast without mentioning bread and tea as long as Nigerians are concerned.
An average Nigerian on a daily basis go home after work or business with at a least a loaf of bread, which makes bread high in demand, and highly profitable for those in that line of business.
If you’ve been thinking of the business to start, launching a bakery will be a smart move. Though is capital intensive, if you are aiming at setting up a standard bakery, which of course you should have in mind because there are basic things that should be on ground to start such business.
But the truth is, you will have no regret if you are buoyant enough or have such capital to venture into bakery business.
The sweetest part is, you can still bake or make bread with stove or without an oven, at home and enjoy with your family.
There are also other recipes you can bake with stove, such as Nigerian meat pie, cake etc.
