ABOUT

Tea bread in Ghana is a traditionally baked bread with a local twist to it. It is usually enjoyed fresh and a day old tea bread can be met with some resentment. If you are unfortunate not to have a bakery close by, then you have the task of waking up early to stalk the bread hawker…lol.

And we all know how we test for the freshness of the bread. By squeezing it with our fingers, to the dismay the hawker…hehehe. Too much trouble? Bake yours at home with this recipe and enjoy fresh Ghana tea bread.
