Prehistoric man had already been making gruel from water and grains, so it was a small jump to starting cooking this mixture into a solid by frying it on stones. 2010 studies from National Academy of Sciences discovered traces of starch, likely from the roots of cattails and ferns, prehistoric mortar and pestle like rocks. The roots would have been peeled and dried before they were ground into flour and mixed with water. Finally, the paste would be cooked on heated rocks.
How did humans get from prehistoric flat bread to fluffy bread that we see in the grocery store? There are three primary innovations that created "modern"bread, which are leavening, refined flour and mechanized slicing.
