Tasty teabread

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

“My Dundee gro­cer fa­ther in his Strath­mar­tine Road shop when I was a lad sold a lot of what was called teabread,” writes a Craigie reg­u­lar.

“It was very pop­u­lar. It was var­ied – I re­mem­ber Paris buns among them – was cheaper than cakes, yet it was sweet and tasty. I liked teabread be­cause you got more for your money than cakes and the buns could be made even tastier with the ad­di­tion of jam.

“I don’t seem to see teabread in Perth bak­ers’ shops these days. Is teabread still on sale in Dundee?”
