Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

If you love wholemeal, grainy, crusty bread, thickly sliced, (or thinly also can), then you have to check out this new range of breads, lovingly made by my good friend, who goes under the name MRS MACGREGOR.... she is married to a scotsman, afterall.

An amazing variety....buns, rolls, loaves, with an a dizzying array of seeds...poppy, pumpkin, sunflower, ....some I cant even name.



Burger buns. I have often heard a grouse that local burger buns have a sweetish aftertaste. These don't.


The mini loaves, at approx RM5 per loaf.





Anyway, I had a lovely poppy seed roll this morning, at my regular breakfast coffee shop, Rocky, in Bangsar Baru. The landlady, my "godma", keeps a special tub of butter for me, ahem, (I don't eat margarine), and I always get some extra goodies thrown in, such as the baked beans.....AH, wholesome wholemeal poppy seed roll, heinz baked beans, half boiled eggs, boiled to perfection.... can breakfast be any better?

YOU CAN BUY THESE LOVELY BREADS AT VILLAGE GROCER, BANGSAR VILLAGE, or ROCKY COFFEE SHOP, JLN TELAWI 5, or CALL MRS MACGREGOR, at 016-2389313. She also does a wide variety of premium cakes, and the most divine shortbread.

Below are the official "STUDIO SHOTS", taken by professional photographers. Kinda like the bride in the studio, as opposed to on a non wedding day.....

qwazymonkey, i think yeah, its at the bread aisle in village grocer, not sure leh. u can always email or sms her, she's very versatile, can make any flavour i'm sure.

fatboybakes said...

LFB, yup, tell the lady boss you're my friend...that might get you some real butter.

diaryofkl, actually, i should ask her...i also would like a nice bagel. i'm sure its just a matter of tweaking and shaping the bread dough a little bit.

lianne, yeah, i think a pic of fatty charsiu would be more tempting for you at this stage...

550ml, really ah? i never really noticed it. (the sweet aftertaste).

thule a.k.a leo said...

now still in confinement period la.. can't go anywhere :) hafta wait until next month I guess... but I might come to KL for one-day-trip this Sat... will see if I have the time or not

Nic (KHKL) said...

yeah, definitely eyeing on the burger buns. they come with different-different flavours somemore.

it's not appetising to eat breads that are really plain, so the toppings are most welcome. like what blonde hair does to gwyneth paltrow.

ToyBoy & ToyGirl said...

Ariba!!! It delights the stomach to feed.

Life for Beginners said...

"that might get you some real butter"

That just puts all sorts of wrong thoughts in my head. O naughty me. :P

fatboybakes said...

LFB, [cherubic angelic look], pray tell, what devious buttery thoughts went thru your mind?

henry keats yeo, clap clap clap....

unka, apparently this post did generate some buyers for her... wah!!!

bangsar babe, aiyo, the best things in life are so simple. roll, butter, baked beans and half boiled eggs.... you bought oridi or not???

CUMI & CIKI said...

if i could only bring one carbo to a deserted island and had to choose between rice, pasta, potato & bread (all things being equal and all being of good quality)... i pick BREAD!
as for the grease of choice.. butter:D (actually olive oil is a close second.. )

great shots.. making me hungry
