During the late 80's early 90's I lived in a house in Northwood that always smelt of bread.  We were so poor and we worked out it was cheaper to make our own bread.  Every morning I would get up, make my bread, let it rise and bake it, every day.  For a treat we would walk into Hanley and get oatcakes.  There was a hatch in the wall and you would que up to get them.

My mum use to make bread in 1975, I use to come home from school and there'd be a bowl in the airing cupboard with a towel over the top and I'd think 'mums baking bread again'.  She would make bread and rolls, not all the time just now and again.

She came from Aberdeen and would make Aberdeen Rolls 'Rowies' they called them.  We use to have them warm with melted butter and jam on.

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.

When I was at school you had cooking lessons, the whole room was like a kitchen.  We all did proper baking from scratch.  You had the yeast and the water and everything.  We made a whole loaf on our own then took it home and ate it, it was well worth doing.

I made bread at school, plated it, it was very nice, my dad liked it any road.  We used yeast, flour, a bit of salt and kneaded it, get the air out.
