  23. Hi Gloria,

    Love your blog ... The yeast you use in your recipes is it active yeast (the brick form), dry yeast, instant yeast or rapid rise yeast? ... Also would like to know the brand which you use .... I would like to try some recipes ... have not baked with yeast before hence pardon my ignorance ... Thanks in advance and God Bless

    1. Thanks a lot for such kind words... I use instant yeast prime or moments brand can use active dry yeast or fresh yeast as well ..if using fresh yeast that brick form which u mentioned,in that case you will need to take double the amount mentioned..if the recipe calls for 1 tsp yeast you need to take 2 tsp fresh yeast(brick form)
      No worries dear ..keep trying keep baking you will get the hang of it😃

  24. Hi Gloria
    Can I replace All purpose flour with whole-wheat flour?

  25. You can the texture will differ though.use half whole wheat and half maida instead

  26. I have tried it twice and both the times it has turned out awesome.thanks for the recipe.

  27. I made this bread today with different filling. Turned out amazing. Thanks a lot for the recipe 😊
