Historical Baking

Bakers of yore did not bake with cake mix or canned pie filling, but they did bake in the embers of a fire. Talk to your kids about what it would be like to cook this way every day. Ask them to imagine how life might be different. Let your imagination wander — that's what campfires are for.
