Maltese bread 'Il-Hobz tal-Malti'
Maltese bread: Undoubtedly the Maltese bread, is indeed very good. Today the Maltese bread is still very cheap. Before the bread was sold to customers by a horse-drawn yellow, generally dirty box (carriage). Today the baker comes with his van and roams round the city. You can even pick on yourself, since there is an average of 2 bakeries per village. The ingredients of this bread, remained the same - flour, yeast, water snd a lot of salt, but of course today there is a lot of electric machines which do the work which used to be done by hand. We use stale bread to make the traditional bread pudding. There are many types of Maltese bread include:- tas-salib (of the cross), tas-sikkina (of the knife), the ftira, and tal-kexxun (of the drawer).
