Elven Lembas Bread
From the Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R Tolkien
For those who don't know, lembas is a special bread made by the elves of the Lord of the Rings series. It's shaped into thin cakes and because of its filling nature it's usually used for sustenance on long journeys. Generally wrapped in mallorn leaves, not much else is known about the ingredients other than it contains honey. I'm not quite sure where I got this recipe, but I chose it because it's one of the few that I found that actually used honey. You can find a template for mallorn leaves and a alternate recipe here. These would probably make great party hors d'oeuvres if you're nerdy enough to have a LoTR themed party. Which you probably are. Dork.
1 c. honey
3 fruits of the Mallorn tree (kumquats)
2 tsp. orange blossom or rose water (optional)
3 oz. chopped almonds or macadamia nuts
¼ c. melted butter
2 ¼ c. flour
½ tsp. salt
Directions: Put the eggs, honey, kumquats, rose or orange flower water, and nuts in a food processor or blender. Blend on high for 2-4 minutes. Add 1 cup of the flour. Blend for a minute or two. Put mixture into a bowl and add the remaining flour and the salt. Whisk or stir until well blended. Bake lembas on a pizzelle or iron about 15 seconds each or until lightly brown. Cut into desired sized pieces. Wrap in a leaf and tie with a string!
