A damper is an Austrian bread type that as far as I know has its origin in the colony era. It is a very quick bread. You just throw the ingredients together and then bake it right away.
If you are a fan of fantasy or historical cooking, then I think you will enjoy this cookbook. All the recipes in it are for dishes mentioned in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice & Fire. It is written by two fans of the series and approved by George R. R. Martin. However it really fits a lot of fantasy settings and would be great inspiration for cooking for most other fantasy inspired events.
For years by sister and I has hosted Halloween parties for a group of friends. I love to cook for people so I tend to bake party snacks. Among those are these scary spider muffins. They are muffins with raisins, nuts and apples made to look like spiders by adding licorice strings as legs. They only take half an hour to make and they are yummy. I like the mix of soft and crunchy bits that the apples and nut bits provide.
This is inspired by an Icelandic recipe that we got from my cousin’s dad. Icelandic crepes are so good and they work as waffles as well. It is a recipe I have been making since I was tall enough to reach up and flip the pancakes my self. Though I do not try to flip them in the air ever. They are really easy to make – the only time consuming part is the frying.
American Pancakes are really good, and easy to make! And great for brunch as well as breakfast. I make them when I want to spoil people around me. It takes about 20 minutes to bake the pancakes, so go wake the person you want to spoil up once the batter is ready and you cook them while they are in the shower – perfect.
