Literally: "You are hot, like bread" (more below)

More colloquially, "You're as hot as [fresh] bread." The person being spoken to here (the "you") is female.

Note: There is an idiomatic Italian phrase, "essere buono come il pane," which means "to be as good as gold." Applied to a female person, in the same phrasing as your question, it would be "Sei buona come il pane," or "You're as good as gold." Could this possibly be what your friend meant to say or write?
