One day, back in the early 1950’s, in his car, my grandfather pointed out a beautiful old stone house and said “That’s Maggie Rudkin’s place, Pepperidge Farm”  I still remember that house, on the left side of the road, but can’t remember what road.  Somewhere in Connecticut, near New Canaan. 

Pepperidge Farm was the bread we always had at home. Years later, remembering their jingle, “The bread that tastes like breakfast, with honey, eggs and milk,” I started trying to duplicate that iconic bread. Finally, here is the recipe I developed with today’s flour and yeast:
