This dense frontier bread is traditionally cooked in hot campfire embers. Enjoy plain, with jam and butter, or dunked in chicken noodle soup. This recipe can safely be halved.
8 cups flour
1 Tbsp salt
1/4 cup baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
2.5 cups milk, plus more as needed
1. Preheat oven to 425F. Grease a lasagna pan with butter or vegetable oil.
2. Add salt, baking powder, and sugar to a small bowl. Whisk to combine. In a large bowl, whisk together flour with the other dry ingredients until evenly distributed. Add milk and stir with a wooden spoon to form a stiff dough. Some extra milk may be needed, but take care not to make it too wet.
3. Press evenly into pan. Cut lines 1/4″ into the dough with a sharp knife.
4. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Serve hot or room temperature.
