From historical sources we know that these viking flatbread were called leve which literally means living.
Leve is a viking flatbread made out of a mix of flour and liquid. You can use any combination of flour you want, but I suggest that you use at least some wheat flour. You can bake them in the ashes from campfire, on a stone, in a primitive or modern oven or as I normally do in a dry frying pan either over the fire or on the stove top. They were a staple of the viking meals.
- 600 milliliters wheat flour (I use half spelt half regular wheat flour)
- 150 milliliters rye flour
- 150 milliliters barley flour you might need to visit a health store or you can use spelt or another old flour type
- 450 milliliters liquid (water buttermilk or whey)
- 2 teaspoons salt
- Optional seeds or cooked grains
Knead all the ingredients together – you might need a bit more water or flour to make it into a good dough. The dough should not be wet.
Roll them into flat breads about the size of a small dessert plate.
Bake the breads and flip the a few times while baking. They need to bake for about 10 minutes. If you bake them in an oven they will raise a little bit while they stay flat in the frying pan. Both taste really nice.
Larp breakfast ideas
Right now I am experimenting with bread for breakfast for the LARP we are going to (Drachenfest). I am trying to figure out what would make for a breakfast foods in a setting with no refrigeration. My inspiration comes from a brunch I had at a local café, Juliette, here in Aarhus.
I am considering a breakfast spread of leve, skyr, boiled eggs, dates, sausage, butter, hard cheese, jam, coffee, tea, water and some kind of fruit.
