Elvish Waybread

I mentioned in previous post that I am a part of a group studying "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring."  Early on it was suggested that someone from the group needed to find a recipe for lembas bread, or Elvish waybread.  It is described in the book and shows up a few times in all the movie adaptations.
I found a recipe from Brielle's Costumes blog some months ago and saved it to my computer.
Tonight, it was shared with the group. 

It is like shortbread, just like the recipe states.  Very crumbly, buttery, and sweet.  

You've noticed by now that I added leaves for effect.  In the books,  it is said that the bread was wrapped in elvish leaves, which kept the bread sweet.
Since Wal-Mart had no elvish leaves, I decided to go with the biggest leaves I could find, which were collared greens.  :)  It worked.  

Collared greens are nasty, by the way.  :}


  1. Okay, I've officially decided that I need to make elvish waybread soon. It looks scrumptious!
    And the collard greens look perfect as elvish leaves. Thank you so much for sharing! That sounds like a really fun group study you're doing:)


  2. Thanks Tasha! I hope you'll enjoy them as much as we did!
    God bless!
