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

When I first met my mother-in-law (over 45 years ago) I was suprised she was making her own bread and tea cakes.  She did this quite often, she put the dough in the airing cupboard for quite a few hours to rise. The bread and tea cakes were very nice and she enjoyed baking.
