Hello Food Wandering fans! For those of you who do not know me, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Roxana and I'm the baker, writer and photographer behind Roxana's Home Baking - where passion meets cravings. My blog is focus on baking everything from scratch no matter if it's just a simple cookie, bread or a layer cake. I'm passionate about baking, especially yeast breads and lover of all things chocolate. I just recently started a mini series about Bread Baking. When Shulie asked me to bake a bread that reminds me of my homeland, Romania, I knew I had to share the recipe for a flatbread my Grandma used to make us almost every week.
I have lots of memories about my Grandma, but most of them involve bread baking. She loved baking bread for our big family. She'd start by sifting the flour in the big oval wooden bowl while we'd happily gather twigs for the wooden oven to heat it up. Most of the time a big chunk of the dough, after it had risen was made into fried doughnuts which we'd sprinkle heavily with sugar for a mid-week sweet snack and the rest of the dough was divided and rolled out to make bread. Carefully my Grandma would poke holes in the dough not to allow it to rise too much.
