Icelandic Man Bakes Delicious Looking “Volcano Bread” Using The Earth As His Oven

Viktor Sveinsson uses the natural hot springs in Laugarvatn, Iceland to bake an Iceland rye bread, or “Volcano bread”. Using rye flour, wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, milk and a pinch of salt, Sveinsson whips up a dough he then buries in the bubbling earth.

Though the temperature in the ground can vary, he says the bread is heated to about 100 degrees Celsius, or around 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
