Everyday White Bread

Look at each slice of soft white bread...



My nice Pandan Kaya, spread on white bread.










Before I can make my own bread, I often get those commercial bread from the shelves. They are often dam and kind of rubbery. When you give it a squeeze, the bread become a dough again!
That's not the kind of bread I wanna let my family enjoy everyday.
This white bread is so smooth and soft, be it making an egg sandwich or just go with jam and butter. Best if you toast it and top with coconut jam! And don't forget a cup of coffee and soft boiled eggs. Yes, Kopitiam! Besides the white bread, I made my kaya (coconut jam) while the bread was baking in the oven. My son simply enjoy this perfect match this morning.
