is not known when yeast was first used to bake bread. The first records
that show this use came from Ancient Egypt.
Researchers speculate that a mixture of flour meal and water was left
longer than usual on a warm day and the yeasts that occur in natural
contaminants of the flour caused it to ferment before baking. The
resulting bread would have been lighter and more tasty than the
previous flat, hard flatbreads. It is generally assumed that the
earliest forms of leavening were likely very similar to modern
sourdough; the leavening action of yeast would have been discovered
from its action on flatbread doughs, and would either have been
cultivated separately or transferred from batch to batch by means of
previously mixed ("old") dough. Alternately, the development of
leavened bread seems to have developed in close proximity to the
development of beer brewing, and barm from the beer fermentation
process can also be used in bread making.
