On my last post, the November recap
, I promised you guys I'd make a food post about the tastilicious Flammkuchen, so here you have it. The amazing, super simple recipe for delicious Falmmkuchen, all you need to do is buy a couple things and get down with it. All together will take about 2 hours that will be absolutely worth it, you'll see!
For the dough you'll need:
And for the toppings:
- 200gr plain white four
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 110 ml water
- 200 gr sour cream
- 2 onions (finely chopped)
- 100 gr of bacon (in strips)
- a pinch of salt, pepper and nutmeg
This may be a bit messy so be prepared to use your hands! First, you'll have to mix in a large bowl the flour, salt, olive oil and water. Start with a spoon if you want but soon you'll realise it's a lot easier to use your hands, and also a lot more fun. Knead until you have a smooth elastic dough, then let to rest for about 30 minutes in a dry place. It'll look something like this:
You can use those 30 minutes to start cooking the bacon and chopping off the onions. As well as softening the sour cream and mixing it with the spices. And lastly but not less important, you'll pre-heat the oven at 200ºC.
When the half hour is up, you'll roll the dough as thin as you possibly can with a rolling pin, you'll place it on baking paper, cover well with copious amounts of the sour cream mix (the more you put the juicier it'll be after), sprinkle with onion and bacon, and finally place in the pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes. Don't leave it too long or it'll get too hard and tough to eat, it should be softish!
After baking, let cool down for a couple of minutes, cut in square pieces and serve with some young apple wine! (Since we couldn't find the apple wine, we decide to give honey wine, also know as Met, a try).
