Every time we have bread for breakfast, at least a quarter portion of the lot gets wasted. That is how I started finding out ways of cutting down on the wastage by making small delicacies out of them. If nothing I just crumb the slices and store in airtight container.
I normally make cake pops whenever l bake or get a cake from outside. So this time around I thought why not bread pops. And surprising enough it turned out tasty. Hence thought of sharing with you guys. So here goes the recipe –
Bread Pops Recipe
Prep time: 20 mins
- Bread slices – 3 Nos.*
