African Bread Recipes

Historic Bread Recipes?

I am looking for bread recipes that were popular for specific cultures during specific time periods.

Right now I need a Spanish bread recipe that was popular (or at least used) around the 1490s.

I also need an African recipe from 1500s.

I also need an English recipe for the 1600s

THANK YOU for any help with any of these recipes!

Heres an old Spanish bread recipe-

Majorca Bread

2 cups flour

1 cup warm water

Small pinch of salt

Roll out on cookie sheet ¼” thick. Cut with circular biscuit cutter. Bake on cookie sheet at 350 for 30 minutes. Flip pieces and bake till golden brown. Keep in dry place for two weeks.

The food staples of the average “Spaniard” of the 17th and 18th centuries in the Americas differed little from that of the natives. Most references to the diets of all but the wealthiest non-Indians are documented in multiple accounts. Pfferkorn, in his Description of the Province of Sonora, written in 1794-95, describes the regular use of maize and chocolate.

Hope that helps!
