Bread Gateau


Gateau is a rich cake, with layers of cream or fruit. Gateau can be prepared with biscuits, cakes, breads… I thought of attempting it with bread.

One of the heavenly dessert from my kitchen. Not only me also kids and hubby loved it to the core. Also I would say it has different taste when served at room temperature and refrigerated. I would prefer the refrigerated one.

It was simple, easy and needs few ingredients. Anyone can make, even the kids. Also I would say it’s going to be the healthiest one because of the fruits and cheese in it. Let us move on to the recipe…
