This is similar to trail bread. The differences are in the technique, not in the ingredients.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

Paddle, or other flat surface
Firewood length piece of wood - to use as rolling pin
(strip bark)
Two lengths of sapling, 1/2 inch by two feet long (strip bark, smooth ends)
flat rock
kettle, piece of birch bark, or other clean area to mix dough

INGREDIENTS:

1 Cup of whole wheat flour
1 tsp of salt
less than 1/2 cup of water

TO BAKE:

Pre-heat your rock. You will need a fire burned back to good steady hot coals. A fire with flame will not do ya.

Mix salt and flour together. Make a depression in your mix and pour in most of the water. Mix dough. It will seem too dry, but keep working it. After a little work you will end up with a round ball of dough.

Cut it in half. Sprinkle a little flour on the paddle Put your dough on the paddle and roll it out thin, about 1/16 inch. This will take a while. This does not seem to work well with white flour. Whole wheat flour is easier.

Pick up the corners and using the saplings, evenly spaced, pick up the thinned dough and put it on the rock. Check it so it does not burn. After it has baked one side, flip it and cook the other side half as long.
