  4. Bake them on a hot dry frying pan - flip them a few times so they don't burn. They need about 5 minutes on each side. They are light brown when they are done. If they get a bit burned it is ok, it still taste wonderful.

Leve

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.

Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. Roll them into flat breads about the size of a small dessert plate.
  3. 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.
