Salaam! Hi everyone, this is my first post on this blog, so I decide to write and make one of the most historical foods in the world, bread.
The earliest form of baked bread was made by Egyptian over 5,000 years ago, as the various symbol for breads are available to be seen on Egyptian hieroglyphs as evidence. Yet, it’s still uncertain whether the bread from old Egypt was already leavened or not. The invention of yeast as bread’s leavening agent itself was presumed as an accident. Popularly believed, back then, wild yeast were being contaminant in flour, until the bakers realized that their bread was leavened naturally and also made the loaf tastier.Yeast, which are fungi, are widely dispersed in nature and commonly found in fruits, especially grapes. It is also commonly believed by historian that the homemade bread was accidentally leavened as the result of making homemade beer- so the yeast spores are everywhere in the house.
