To keep the young ones busy, you can let them make their bread on a stick and it could even be fun for the adults.

Any type of bread dough can be used, but it works well to use a packet (500 g) of self-rising florr, add ½ a teaspoon of salt and mix with water to form an elastic dough.  Roll out on a board until ½ a cm thick and cut in strips of 2 cm wide.

Wind the strips around the one end of a stick (1 to 1.5 cm thick and 500 cm long) to form a cone of 8 to 10 cm long.

Hold the bread cone over hot coals or even near the fire by means of the stick.   Turn continuously in order for the bread to bake but never to burn.  It is ready soon and experience will teach you when to stop.

Let it cool on the stick for a moment or two, shift off the stick intact and fill the inside with the filling of your choice, such as jam or any interesting filling.
