After I made Lembas to snack on while watching The Hobbit last week, I got a bunch of requests for the recipe! So, here’s the recipe for you to make and enjoy your own elvish bread!
Baron’s Lembas Bread
(adapted from the "Lembas from Lothlorien" recipe by Jincey on TheOneRing.net)
- 6 tbsp butter
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup golden raisins (optional)
- 1 egg, well beaten
- 1/2 cup milk
- 4 tbsp heavy cream
- Mallorn leaves (or banana leaves)
Begin by adding the baking powder and salt to the flour. With a pastry blender or fork, cut butter into the dry ingredients in a large bowl until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Do this rapidly so the butter does not melt. Add the sugar and if desired, the raisins. In a small bowl, beat the egg, milk and heavy cream together until mixed. Reserve 1 tbsp of this mixture to brush the tops of the Lembas. Add the wet mixture to the flour and combine into a stiff, soft dough.
Knead the dough three or four times on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough to a 3/4” thickness and cut into roughly 2” squares. Place on a greased baking sheet, leaving 1” of space between Lembas. On top of each Lembas, slash an “X” and brush with the reserved wet mixture. Bake for 12 -13 minutes in a preheated 400 degree oven until golden brown.
After they’ve cooled, wrap each Lembas individually in a fresh, clean mallorn leaf. If these leaves are unavailable in your area, banana leaves make a great substitute and are available at many Asian markets. Makes about a dozen Lembas.
