Charsley isn't bad(there are some amusing bibliographic errors
where he confuses some of the 17th century titles with other works
by other authors) but he really doesn't get into the medieval bread then 
into cakes thing
that would be helpful. He's much better on 18th-19th century material.
 Luard's Sacred Food might be more helpful,
depending on if what you want is the traditional and folklore aspects.
