Flammkuechli or “Flame Tart”
June 9, 2010 in Uncategorized
Am not sure the exact way to translate a Flammkuechli, which is a sort of very thin pizza covered traditionally with creme fraiche, bacon and onions. Its the typical pub type of food in Southern Germany and the Alsace (where I originate from ). I have seen them done here at the Stellenbosch Saturday food market in a slightly different way with rocket and Parma ham which is also delicious.. If you have a pizza tray on your Weber it is also perfect for a quick snack when doing a braai.
Flammkuechli or Flame Cake
Heat oven to 250 deg C
Mix flour, oil, water and salt to a smooth dough ( must not be sticky) and roll out to the size of your baking tray not thicker than 2mm. ( you will get about 3 out of the amount of mix)
Line the baking tray with baking paper and transfer the rolled out dough carefully.
Mix the Crème Fraiche and Sour Crème and paint the dough all over.
Add the Bacon and Onions and some Nutmeg.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the edges turn slightly brown.
Sprinkle with a few chives and enjoy !
