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

On a Sunday we had the table laid out, pease pudding, Stottie cakes, ham, fruit salad, which you ate with bread in those days. Pease pudding made from split peas, boiled, and then sliced when it's cold. My family came down from the N East with the mining, Stottie cakes, me Dad loved them, and liked them with best butter on.
