Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.
We use to go and get bread a cottage loaf and sometimes a bloomer loaf. I'd get them from the local bakers when I lived in Ramsgate in the early 1930's.
I moved to Stoke in 1996 and I would get bread from Burgess Bakery.
Bread now is full of water, I have a slice of toast from supermarket bread. When you've toasted it it's gone down so little.
