I am so excited to share with you today’s recipe! The new Lord of the Rings: the Rings of Power TV series is finally here, and I thought it was a perfect opportunity to make some Lembas bread.

The lord of the rings has been really important to me ever since I was little. We are constantly rewatching it in the house (while quoting every line of course), we have maps and artwork, we even had a subtly Lord of the Rings themed wedding. Over the years I have created a bunch of recipes inspired by the films, and I can’t wait to share them with you.

This is my take on Lembas bread, or elvish way bread. Legolas says; “One small bite is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man”. I’ll be honest with you though, you will not be stopping at just one bite with these. They will be adored and devoured.

I made rosemary, almond, and honey scones, and they are absolutely delicious. During the making of this post and video, a lot of batches of these scones were made since they kept getting eaten too quickly!

These scones are warm, earthy, have an amazing unique flavour, and I honestly feel that they belong in middle earth! I like topping the scone with a generous drizzle of honey on top and wow! We just can’t get enough. If Lembas bread from Lothlorien is anything like this, it’s no wonder Merry and Pippin ate so many right away!

Scones are really simple to make, and once you figure out the perfect base, they are very adaptable. I love how versatile they are so I am a big fan of testing out fun, and interesting flavour combinations this way.

I hope you test out these scones, they make for a perfect Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Ellevensies or Afternoon Tea!

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups (325g) gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons xanthan gum leave out if your AP blend already contains it
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 30 grams granulated sugar
  • 90 g roasted almonds roughly chopped
  • 2 large sprigs rosemary chopped
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 80 grams unsalted butter really cold and chopped into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup milk plus more to brush on top of scones
  • 1 egg

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixing bowl, sift flour, xanthan gum (if necessary), baking powder, baking soda, salt, and granulated sugar. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the pieces of cold butter to the bowl and rub the pieces together with the flour. Keep rubbing the pieces to combine with the flour until you are left with a fine breadcrumb looking mix.
  • Mix together the milk and the egg.
  • Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the milk/egg mixture.
  • Pour in the honey, almonds, and rosemary.
  • Use a fork to gently mix the dry and liquid ingredients together until it starts to combine. Get your hands in there and help to combine the ingredients.
  • Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured surface an press it together until it forms a solid, consistent dough. Try not to over knead the dough. It should look a bit messy but hold together.
  • Place the dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and press the dough into a rectangle shape that is about 3/4 inch tall.
  • Wrap the dough in the plastic wrap and put in the freezer for about 15 minutes to chill. The chilled dough will spread less while baking so don't skip this step!
  • Preheat the over to 400°F with the fan (convection). Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  • Once firm, take the dough from the freezer and remove the plastic wrap. Sprinkle the top with a bit additional flour and spread out over the top of the disk. Use a lightly floured bench scraper or a knife to cut the dough into squares (should make about 6 of them).
  • Make an X indentation on each scone with the bench scraper.
  • Arrange the squares on the prepared baking sheet, keeping a few inches distance between them.
  • Use a pasty brush to bush the excess flour off of the scones and lightly brush the tops of the scones with milk.
  • Bake scones on the center rack of the oven for about 15-20 minutes. The scones should be have puffed up, be lightly golden (a little more browned on the edges) and smell delicious!
  • Remove the scones from the oven and leave them to cool/firm up on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes prior to serving.
  • Drizzle the tops with honey and serve
  • Enjoy!
