Before putting flat cakes on a frying pan, put it for a short time near the fire to make the dough rise. In the absence of a frying pan, buckets and stones are used..
Acorn bread and tortillas.
You can bake from flour, which is obtained by appropriate treatment of oak acorns. Acorns are cleaned, cut into four parts and filled with water. Soak for 2 days, changing the water at least 3 times a day. Then pour cold water and bring to a boil. After this, the acorns are crushed, poured with a thin layer on the litter and dried first in air and then over the fire.
Dried acorns are ground (crushed) into flour. It should be borne in mind that the dough from acorn flour during baking crumbles heavily. The flat cake baked from such dough in a pan (iron sheet), before turning, should be covered with another pan (sheet) and, pressing, turn over both pans or both sheets.
