Out of stock and we are running out of bread. No choice I use another recipe to do my special toast bread  ..hahaha...Black Toast Bread. ~this is the slices of Black Toast Bread~ This is a White Toast Bread recipe from this Taiwan recipes book translate as "Easy method to make home made bread"   "简易家庭面包制作~王志雄和游纯雄合者.
