Bread Baking Babes Head to Sweden for Hällakakor

Norrländska Hällakakor is a traditional flatbread from Sweden.

It’s a soft flatbread eaten warm, slathered with butter.

I’m moving to Sweden just so I can eat this.

Some people top it with cheese. I’d like that, too.


Salmon mousse and / or caviar?

Now you’re just teasing me.

The only thing I like better than warm bread with lots of butter is warm bread with any savory topping.

And lots of butter.

You can keep the jams and jellies.

According to Kelly, of A Messy Kitchen, and our host kitchen for the month, Swedish Hällakakor would be my perfect food. And they only have to bake for 3 or 4 minutes!

Of course, that’s after sitting around, rising for 6 hours or so.

That part is easy.

Flatbreads are common around the world but most are crisp rather than soft. Although, according to Kelly, there is a history of the locals hanging these in the attic to dry out for storage.

If you want to learn more about this lovely, soft, flatbread and try making it yourself head over to A Messy Kitchen for the recipe and detailed instructions on the rolling and cutting (She used a special roller but has suggestions.) Plus you’ll find all the details of baking along this month.
