Looking for the perfect outdoor snack? Try pinnebrød, which translates directly as "stick bread" – a favourite among Norwegians!
This recipe is very easy, and takes almost no cooking skills. Just wrap the dough around a stick, and cook it over a campfire.
The bread is good on its own, but also tasty when wrapped around a sausage!
You can make the dough beforehand. All you need to do then is to find the perfect stick to cook your bread on.
Here's how you make the dough:
400 ml (200 g) wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
5 tbsp cooking oil
approx. 150 ml water
1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
2. Add the oil and water and mix into a smooth, not too sticky dough.
3. If you are going to make a double portion of dough, it is best to use a little less than double the oil. Otherwise, the dough can get a little sticky.
4. Add a little oil around the dough and put it inside a bread bag or container (the oil prevents the dough from sticking to the bag).
5. Whittle some sticks and twist the dough around the sticks.
6. Bake over the embers (open flame may result in the bread becoming charred), rotating the sticks often.
When you're cooking the bread, make sure you don't make it too thick, as it may then end up raw on the inside.
If you want, you can add sugar and cinnamon to the dough and make campfire cinnamon rolls! Or why not try them with chocolate?
You can also make flatbreads and cook them in a pan.
Making your own campfire? Remember that in Norway, campfires in or near forests are prohibited from 15 April to 15 September.
Do as Norwegians do: combine campfire kos with hiking!
