One of the very few commercially available baked products I've ever had which could be said to be Delicious, was Pepperidge Farm Bread. Back in the forties...yumm, a faint sweetness that came out particularly when toasted. Even after Campbells bought PF, the bread was pretty darn good. I've searched and searched for a recipe, and -O-. The packaging carried the subtitle, An English Tea Loaf, and I've searched for that as well: -O-. Does anyone out there have a recipe or a clue?

Thank you for the gracious provision of your bread recipes, and for the 60 year-old newspaper advertisements with their tantalizing ingredient specs. I assume your bread recipes can be adapted for old fashioned oven baking, as versus bread machines. I have a machine which I bought at Williams Sonoma, but it and I were not good partners and produced lousy bread.
Your post also made me wonder if there is some old geezer (like me!) in Downingtown, PA who used to work at the PF Bakery there and who could recreate the recipe from memory.
Glad you joined C'talk.
