History of Homemade Baked Goods

The need for baking bread foreshadowed all baked goods and originated in the Middle East around 8000 BC. These primitive breads were flat, course, and dense, so unlike the fluffy, raised loaves we enjoy today. The shift from barley to wheat and improved methods of milling brought about new textures and tastes along with improved bread recipes.

The methods and ingredients used for making breads took another leap forward between the 17th and 19th centuries in Europe. For instance, the Renaissance recipes for cakes, biscuits, and pastries began to produce baked goods that more closely resemble those of today.

The invention and eventual refinement of baking powder in the mid-1800s opened the door to a world of new possibilities. Light textured muffins, fluffy biscuits, crumbly scones, and fancy buns all became possible for the home baker.

However, despite countless advancements, the heart of baking — the simple ingredients, the care, the joy — has remained almost the same. A well-made muffin or scone draws on the same baking principles it would have a century ago.

From the simple flat bread recipe of ancient times to the breakfast baked goods recipes of Grandma's day, the journey of these satisfying comfort foods paints a fascinating picture of innovation and tradition intertwined.

By continuing the tradition of baking these timeless recipes, we pay homage to the rich history and evolution of these cherished treats. So let's preheat the oven, sift that flour, and celebrate the joy of baking vintage-style, one muffin or one scone at a time.
