Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.

They gave me a bread maker, I did it, it came out all wrong, something about the yeast, and the water. It came out like a brick. That's the bread that I threw in the garden and it nearly killed a bird. My Mum made bread, and she used to say you need two loaves for you kids! Oh bread with tomatoes, bacon, lovely dipped in the fat..
