Hard Bread Recipe

Traditional Newfoundland Hard Bread Recipe

5 cups flour
1.5 cups water, more or less (you don’t want a tacky mixture)
1 tablespoon salt

Mix ingredients. Then knead to about a 1.5 inch thickness. Cut into squares. Place on greased cookie pan and bake for approx 40 mins in a pre-heated oven @ 425 degrees or until dough becomes hard. When it is prepared properly it will look, feel and taste exactly like regular hard bread.

Soak this recipe the same as store bought hard bread. Since it doesn’t flake apart you may need to soak it a little longer than normal.

It makes roughly a bag of the store bought variety.
