Bread Making

Bread making skill is the creative art of combining different kinds of ingredients in their right proportions to produce different types of bread. Such ingredients include flour, sugar, yeast, butter, salt etc.

In the D-SAP program, we teach the basics of bread making skills that expose student to the step by step methods of bread making. Some of the types of bread we bake include mini loaves, coconut bread, sardine bread, marble bread, burger bread, hotdog bread, fruit bread etc.

With the knowledge of these types of bread, students can assist their families by baking for home consumption or go into mini commercial businesses in their communities by selling homemade bread.
