Lembas Bread (Lord of the Rings “authentic” Elvish bread)
2 ½cups of flour 1tablespoon of baking powder ¼teaspoon of salt ½ cup of butter 1/3cup of brown sugar 1teaspoon of cinnamon ½teaspoon honey 2/3cup of heavy whipping cream ½teaspoon of vanilla
Preheat oven to 425F. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and mix with a well till fine granules (easiest way is with an electric mixer). Then add the sugar and cinnamon, and mix them thoroughly.
Finally add the cream, honey, and vanilla and stir them in with a fork until a nice, thick dough forms.
Roll the dough out about 1/2 in thickness. Cut out 3-inch squares and transfer the dough to a cookie sheet.Criss-cross each square from corner-to-corner with a knife, lightly (not cutting through the dough).
Bake for about 12 minutes or more (depending on the thickness of the bread) until it is set and lightly golden.
***Let cool completely before eating, this bread tastes better room temperature and dry. Also for more flavor you can add more cinnamon or other spices***
as someone who has baked these A LOT
They are REALLY GOOD
and I am reblogging this because I KEEP LOSING MY RECIPE
If I´m writing this post, it means I couldn´t achieve my NaNoWriMo challenge and I locked it under my bed to begin with these kind of writting behavior evaluation. Don´t judge me because I learned a lot. NaNoWriMo left me with all this wibbibly wobblibly wordy massy thingy as a base and also with my main idea written as a manuscript. The description of the characters, a few coffee bills and tons of paper full of ink. But that´s not the main thing, it left me an habit and it is to write each day about something. Also, NaNoWriMo let me know myself on how I write. Now that I have found a specific voice and writing rituals I´m so ready for next year´s challenge!
