Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.
When I was 5 or 6 my dad use to make bread. Because it was an old fashioned house it had a coal fire. He had to keep the temperature in the kitchen at a set level and it had to be really really warm. We weren't allowed in the kitchen and if anyone opened the door, even for a second, he would yell at us. At the end there would be mountains and mountains of these little bread cakes. It was worth it afterwards but I hated it while he was doing it.
