Ash Cakes and Honey Drizzle for Pioneer Day
Cook time
Total time
A simple bread cooked in a fire.
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 4
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 T. butter
  • ¼ cup water
  1. Mix all ingredients together. Using your hands, knead together into a ball of dough. Separate the ball into four parts.
  2. Flatten each part into a disc and place on glowing coals in a fire. When edges are dark, turn and cook the other side.
  3. Remove from fire, brush off any ashes, and serve hot with butter and honey.
If you're not into open flame cooking, you can also bake these. Mine took about 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven, flipping once after about 10-12 minutes. You can also dress these up with some fresh herbs such as rosemary or thyme.
