Baking snobroed over the open fire is something I did when I was growing up in Denmark. The recipe is real basic, as it was often done away from home in the out doors. The recipe I have calls for 1 pk. of dry yeast, 500g of flour, 1 tsp of salt, 300ml of water and thats it, mix dry ingredients and slowly add water, and then knead together well, no need for rising. We used half whole wheat pastry flower and half spelt flour, and added a little agave as well.
Building a bonfire with the children is always exciting and the simple act of baking bread over the fire just adds to the fun.
So first we mix and knead....
And while we let the dough rest, we build the fire
Rolling the dough into long slim sausages....
And turning it around the sticks, we used bamboo sticks, and remember to cover the top
of the stick with dough so that it does not burn
Bake the bread over glowing embers, and keep turning. It is ready when it sounds hollow when you tap it, and also if it slides of the stick without sticking.
...... and here is one ready to eat
add some raspberry jam, yum!
It is hard to believe that we all washed hands before we started, it was a delicious mess.
