Scandinavian Pan Fried Advent Bread / Adventsbrød i Panne

I have tried to find out something about these advent bread, but it was not easy. What I did find out was that the bread was made during the advent weeks both in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

Great for Christmas salads and as a rough ‘lefse’ for supper during the advent weeks. The ones who are waiting for something good are not waiting in vain, as we say in Norway.

Focaccia with Rosemary and Onion / Focaccia med Rosmarin og Løk

Bread is a real food staple yet so many people buy a loaf at the store, depriving themselves of the love, the smell and the sense of satisfaction that is baking. Making bread outside is just as easy as picking it up from the supermarket. All you need is a cast iron frying pan and some foil.

Pane Carasau – Sardinian Flatbread / Sardinsk Flatbrød

A recipe for Sardinian flatbread found on food52.com
Pane Carasau_food52_post

This is Sardinian flatbread or as it is translated “sheet music” bread. It is really a lot like a cracker although it looks much like a tortilla. It is stiff and crackly and in the hands of the Sardinians it is multipurpose. It is simple to make and this version requires no yeast. The most difficult part of the process is rolling it out but after one or two you’ll get the hang of it.

By the way, they are usually baked twice. Meaning this is the first time and when you are ready to eat them you bake them again usually brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with rosemary.

Polar Bread / Polarbrød

A Scandinavian bread type found on godt.nopolarbrød_godt_post

I don’t know how this bread type got its name, but I find it hard to believe it is because it was staple for guys like Nansen heading out for expeditions in the polar region close to a hundred years ago. They were more the oat biscuit kind of guys, if you know what I mean.

On the other hand, polar bread is a superb picnic bread and you can make polar bread yourself easily. Make a lot extra while you’re at it, they freeze well and can be defrozted in a toaster in a matter of minutes. Ted 😉
