500g Self raising flour
3 Tablespoons of sugar
300-500ml of water
Measuring Jug (though can be done less scientifically by guessing)
Mixing bowl - pretty much impossible to get away without.
Twists can be made under a hot grill, but they're best over a proper 'cooking' fire which consists of embers, like in the picture below (glowing bits of wood). They could work over a nice hot BBQ, but don't rest them on the grill grid, they'll stick. Do it direct over the heat on a stick.
Step 1: Mixing the ingredients
When the dough becomes smooth as pictured in the last pic, you're done.
Step 2: Sticks
Sticks work best the thicker they are. My stick is very long and at the thickest end is about 1/4-1/2"
Step 3: Dough
Roll it into a snake shape. Do not be tempted to make it really thick - you want it about 1/4"-1/2" thick and 'twist' it on to the stick.
Thicker dough or dough that isn't twisted does two things: 1.) it doesn't cook all the way through and doesn't swell at all well. 2.) it falls off onto the floor.
This wisdom I empart to you, knowing full well any kids you teach this to will almost certainly ignore it. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Step 4: Cooking on embers
Flames on the other hand will put soot on your twist and it'll taste pretty horrible. Not that it stops scouts from doing this or even eating them.
Think blackened raw dough like the first picture.
The second picture shows it being done properly.
