    It seems to be a iron oven that heats a big pizza stone with a fire underneath. Ever seen anything like it?

    Yep, there’s one or two over here in the UK and you see them at the markets in Germany. Basically they are a good German engineering solution to the problem of making a wood-fired oven portable. Use steel as the oven shell and have the baking stones with the fire underneath. Heypresto working oven – that will bake most thing including Flammkuchen. You often find a version of this type of oven above / on top of European wood stoves / room heaters that are manufactured from steel.

    If any one wants to know more about Flammkuchen post a reply and I will post some information

        Flammenkuchen recipe

        Flammen = flames,

        Kuchen = cake

        But the so called "cake" is not en flambe'. It is just baked golden brown. Here is one recipe, but don't expect anything sweet!


        Yeast Paste

        250 g flour
        150 ml cream
        100 ml sour cream
        1 egg


        Mix flour with salt, dissolve yeast in lukewarm water (50 ml).
        Mix it with the flour until you have a firm past.
        DON'T LET IT RISE.
        Roll the paste out in a grease pan, the ends up a little.
        Mix the cream, sour cream, and egg.
        Pour it on the paste and put bacon and onions on it.

        Put the pan in the 'cold' oven.
        Bake it for 15 min at 150 C (300 F) and then
        15 min at 200C (400F).
        It should be golden brown

        (M) Sorry to steal your thunder, Alf, but when dmun said,
        "sure, I'll bite", I figured he was hungry!
