There is a very good reason why estate agents always recommend the smell of freshly baking bread to make your home seem appealing to potential buyers, and that is the simple fact that the smell of bread when it’s fresh from the oven is delicious. Plenty of people think that bread making is difficult and time consuming, but they would be mistaken – once you get the hang of it, you will be able to whip up a loaf of your favourite bread in no time.
Bread making is an ancient art which dates back to Neolithic times when their early equivalent of bread would have been more like a baked grain paste, although whether the discovery of the leavening properties of flour was discovered by accident or experimentation is lost in the mists of time. Throughout the ages, bread has been evolving to suit not only the tastes of the time, but newly available ingredients and also the refinement of the bread making process.
