Wastel Bread
Breads
Historic, Lost

The term appears repeatedly in old cookbooks, and is found in Chaucer, Langland 1390 and dozens of other works up to the beginning of the 19th Century. It seems from the context to indicate some superior type of bread, but no receipt or description can be found.

For other traditional bread types, see:
Cheat
Jannock Bread
Manchets
Pandemain
Wastel Bread
