“Lembas, elvish waybread. One small bite is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man.”
Usually eaten on long journeys were food might be hard to find, these deliciously sweet and slightly lemon flavored elven bread are a rare and most favored treat. Wrapped in a mallorn leaf, the bread stays fresh and can last you for ages.
I thought I should cast off my human disguise and make Cales some elven lembas bread for his birthday today. He’s a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works, and especially the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I thought it was a splendid idea :D According to Tolkien himself these magical, elven bread are slightly lemon flavored and taste heavenly. They don’t really taste heavenly, but they are quite good. There’s no lemba without a mallorn leaf to wrap around it, so I made one as well to accompany the bread.
Now I’m a bit bummed I didn’t get to eat more of those :( They were just about flavored enough to tingle your tastebudds. Hm, I think only those who enjoy Tolkien’s works would appreciate these biscuits. I imagine they’re a bit too plain and taste too bland for the average cake-eater!
