That wee box rings a bell Melody. was the Milanda loaf much like the Mother's Pride we have now? My Dad was a driver for Bilslands Bakery and every Saturday he would bring home a large box of cakes which we would share with the neighbours, those cakes tasted like cakes way back then. smile.gif

Ah can't remember which shop they were from Mary, ye kind of chose which cakes ye wanted and ye picked family favourites and they came in a wee box of a half dozen and there was this wee kind of drawing of cakes in brown on the top of the box. smile.gif Oh it conjures up being wee and kneeling up at the table and the grannies wi their hats still on taking their tea. smile.gif Complete security and love.

Aw Paris Buns were my father-in-laws favourites. Sure it's funny how we remember all our loved one's favourite things? When I'm in the supermarket or whatever and see a certain thing it goes through my head, Dad's favourite or Gran's favourite or so-and so's favourite. It often makes me buy them just for the sake of it. smile.gif Good job their favourites wurnae caviar and champagnes. laugh.gif

My daddy was a milkman with Scottish farmers, Think they delivered bread also and orange juice. I seem to remember both Mother's Pride and Milanda.

A plain loaf from the co-op, wrapped in white paper, and getting the big fat end to toast in front of a coal fire. Then smothering it in butter bought from the co-op out of a big wooden vat and patted into shape by two wooden paddles, kept in a stoneware jar with water. I guess the toffs had a pan loaf 'cause it was more "ree-fined". laugh.gif

There used to be a midnight horror movie, think it was a friday. We would take the dog out and walk to the shop at the corner for the hot rolls. Rolls and fish fingers yummy at nearly midnight. The thought of it now makes me think yuck. Do remember making the toast on the open fire when I was wee. When we got married I used to get the creamery butter from Curly's on the Gallowgate near Belgrove. Used to ask for a pat of cramery butter. No idea what it weighed. Only on special occasions we got "Pan" Bread and then when we came here it is all you could get for a long time.Now we get fancy bread. Bit nae plain breid

We always had pan loaf in our house. Never could like the black crust and bottom of plain bread.

In our house we never Had Pan bread, my mother always said it was far to doughy, Just like here in Canada after all these years I'm still searching for a decent loaf to buy, and now that I no longer bake bread it is impossible to find a decent loaf. ps at this time , I'm trying pumpernickel. smile.gif

It's the same here Angel, I never buy pan bread it's like cotton wool. There seems to be plenty of varieties of bread in the supermarkets however they all taste about the same. I generally stick to plain bread unless I'm in Byres Road and buy some in the cheese shops.
