How far back do bread recipes go though? According to history, bread goes back over 30,000 years into the Upper Paleolithic of Europe, also known as the Stone Age. The people back then relied upon hunting and gathering to eat, and came to use cereal grains more and grow the crops in abundance. Unleavened types of bread go back to Egypt and Ethiopia too, where people would grind grain to make the flour and then mix it with water to create flat breads. Making bread as a side to accompany meals became common in Europe over the years and many different types of bread recipes were created like this basic bread recipe, that were very easy to make in a pinch even with limited money and ingredients. Bread has always been known as a way to be able to satisfy a hungry appetite for an affordable cost, and it also always made for a good carry along snack that people could eat whenever they pleased.
It wasn't until the early 1900s that bread became something that was mass marketed. Otto Frederick Rohwedder was the man to invent a machine that sliced bread before it would be sold. People became concerned that the bread would go stale when they kept it sliced, because it would be open to the air and get dried out. But Otto Frederick Rohwedder made sure that the bread was sold in a plastic wrapping that would prevent the bread from going stale too quickly. Whole wheat bread recipes were commonly enjoyed by lower class people at first, while higher class people enjoyed the white bread because they thought it was better quality. Then later on, people found out that the nutritional value of darker, more grainy bread was better and the white bread was not revered as highly. Now, you can go into a grocery store and see all sorts of different types of bread made with different ingredients. You can also make these simple bread recipes at home like this 30 minute baguette.
