Hey pixels!! Last weekend I did a Lord of the Rings marathon!! I saw all the films in one weekend because, you know, it’s too warm outside… Watching good films seems a legit option. But, of course, I had to cook something related wiht the films I was watching. What about Lembas?
Just in case you don’t know about it, my happy pixels, Lembas is a special bread made by the Elves, also called waybread in the Common Speech. Shaped into thin cakes, it is very nutritious, stays fresh for months when kept unbroken in its original leaf-wrappings, and is used for sustenance on long journeys.
I thought it was a perfect option. Yes, I had to use the oven, which is not the best idea on Summer, but the result is worth. My not-made-by-Elves Lembas were so good, but without the magical properties that the original ones have… Cons of not being an Elf…
Maybe my Lembas are not enough for a long journey, but they are so yummy for a movie marathon. So, if you’re watching the Lord of the Rings films this Summer, I highly recommend this recipe to you.
I don’t know if you enjoy this kind of films, but even if you don’t, this magic bread is so yummy that you can do it anyway. Here is the recipe, my happy pixels!!
(Note: I have two different lembas recipe. I’ll made the second one when I’m watching The Hobbit films).
Ingredients ( 10-12 units):
- 3 cups flour
