Maltese bread is a crusty bread so I suppose any kind of crusty bread will do.

puddina! I love it, always reminds me of my Nanna!! I make it here now in England and my children love it. I always have to make 2 trays of it, as 1 has to be cut up for the whole family and 1 I hide for my family!! Great stuff, easy to make and tastes great! if you dont have Anisette I'd use Brandy!!
