Berliner Salzkuchen (Berlin salt cake)

This is a typical receipe for men who after a hard day of work in the early days in Berlin enjoyed a glass of beer and the salt cakes.

17 oz of flour
3 tablespoons of Baking Powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cumin
2 cups of Weiss Beer or any lager

To cover the salt balls

1 teaspoon of salt and cumin
grease proof paper

Mix all the ingedients together. Add the beer and mix together to make a smooth dough.
Make about 20 round balls and roll them in the salt/cumin mixture. Place in the middle of the oven on grease proof paper, and bake at 400 F or gas 6 for about 35 mins or until brown.
