Lembas Bread

Well, when I first saw the recipe for Lembas bread on Pinterest I was super excited. Though, can't say I was  super impressed with the results, but it was a nice little treat. Though I'm pretty sure this wasn't what they ate in the movie.. mine looks WAY different.. haha
Still a nice treat..
so here ya go!

Lembas Bread
One small bite is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man.

 This was mine ;)
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
8 tablespoons of cold butter (1 stick)
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon maple syrup/honey
2/3 cup of milk/heavy cream (or more, if necessary)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla


1) Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
2) Mix the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
3) Add the butter and mix with a fork or a
 pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine granules.
4) Add the sugar and cinnamon, and mix them thoroughly into the mixture.
5) Add the milk/cream and vanilla and stir them in with a fork until a nice, thick dough forms.
6) Roll the dough out about 1/2 in thickness.
7) Cut out 3-inch squares and transfer the dough to a cookie sheet.

8) Criss-cross (DO NOT cut all the way) each square from corner-to-corner with a knife.
9) Bake for about 12 minutes or more (depending on the thickness of the bread) until it is set and lightly golden.

(the recipe makes about 10-12 pieces of lembas)

nutrition information is using honey,
 milk, and 10 pieces of lembas

Number of Servings: 10

 As you can see, I made a mess on myself...Not a good day to wear a black piece of clothing.. ugh

Here is a little treat for you :)
