Did you know that you can cook bread with the volcano?


That’s true.

Erupting volcanoes are no joke, like the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii that’s already destroyed dozens of houses.

But on the bright side, Hawaiians could maybe try baking bread using the spewed lava on streets? Filmmaker Alison Grasso has posted a video featuring Viktor Sveinsson. Of course, our first instinct when a volcano starts to burst lava is to run away as fast as we can. But Sveinsson, an Icelandic dude, goes to a boiling hot spring from an underground volcano to bake bread.

Well, Icelandic hot springs usually get heated through an underground volcano. In 1783, one of the Icelandic volcanoes erupted causing deaths of approximately five million people.

Dangerous, huh?

So, how is it possible to be safe while baking bread with a volcano? Watch this video:

Hmm… tasty right?

If you want to make the bread yourself, here’s what you need:

  • 4 cups rye flour
  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 l milk
  • pinch of salt

Just combine all these ingredients in a pot, and then bury them in a 100°C hot spring for 24 hours.

Easy-peasy, right?

Unfortunately, a hot spring is the essential ingredient to make volcano bread.
