The Baker Title Graphic

Bread was served at nearly every meal in medieval times, so the baker was a busy man. Wheat, oats, rye, barley, and mixtures of them were commonly used to make bread. Different kinds of bread were made for different purposes. Crackers, pretzels, biscuits, and cakes were baked in addition to loaves of bread.

Bread was baked in brick ovens with a separate chamber for the fire. A door on the oven chamber helped keep the heat even on the inside. A long wooden paddle was used to take the bread out of the hot oven.

Every castle needs an oven and a baker to make bread for all the people who live there.
