A friend invited me over for barbecue on Sunday. I made some Swedish "stick bread" and baked it on the barbecue nets since we did not have any sticks. Lots of good food.
|This clever contraption was used to get the coal burning with less work than usual.|
|A squid in foil, with squid guts and other things mixed in with it.|
|Swedish "stick bread" baked without sticks and looking more like Japanese "melon bread" (though tasting not at all of melon).|
|After it became dark, one of the other participants let me share some of his toys.|
|There were also two different types of cheese cake available. Both very good.|
I was asked about the stick bread recipe, which is super simple. This is food that small children are supposed to make themselves, and it is more a "playing with clay" kind of fun than "let's make good food" thing. Anyway, the recipe I used was:
125 cc of flour
half a teaspoon of baking powder
a quarter of a teaspoon of salt
50 cc of water
Mix the dry stuff, then add water. Normally you make long dough strips that you wrap around a big stick and then stick into a camp fire to bake them. The dough should be about half a centimeter thick to get the inner parts baked without the surface turning into charcoal. For fine in a frying pan or on a grill too. This bread is not particularly tasty, but since you get the grilled aftertaste and you always eat it when it is freshly baked, it is not bad.
