I wanted to share this with my fellow carboholic Burners. Get out a pencil: B&M (Burnham & Morrill) Raisin Brown Bread. Labeled as "New Englands Finest".
This stuff comes in a big 16 oz can as a cylindrical loaf, looks like molasses bread, and is cooked right in the can. It is unleavened and fairly dense, but it's surprisingly good stuff. Ingredients are: water, whole wheat flour, molasses, dextrose, rye flour, raisins, whey, yellow corn oil, baking soda, buttermilk, and salt. No markings as to suitability for our Jewish friends, so if that is important you might want to research it a bit.
To serve it you cut the top and bottom out of the can leaving a metal sleeve. Push the bread out an inch or so with your fingers, cut-off a half-inch slice, (looks like a big dark sausage patty now), butter it well on both sides, and fry it up in a covered pan on medium heat. After 2-3 minutes, add more butter (or, more nummy, and recommended by 4 out of 5 cardiologists who are trying to put their kids through med school, bacon grease!). Dump it on a plate and serve with a fork. A half-inch slice is 30 grams of carbs and 130 calories.
I take 3-4 cans of this stuff to every burn and it's usually gone by Thursday. Something about it just goes well with playa dust. At home, I'm not a big fan of it. I find it passable, but nothing more. On the playa I CRAVE this stuff, as do my fellow campers.
One neat thing is it doesn't spoil, dry-out, or mold after a week. When you've cut-off a piece, just slide the rest back into the can and put it in a ziploc. It doesn't need refrigeration after opening, and it's shelf-stable for 3 years. If an end gets a bit chewy, cut off a thin slice and discard as the remaining bread will still be very good.
I have seen it at World Market and HEB, as well as on-line. It's even cheap.
If you tend to crave bread on the playa, try this stuff. It's also pretty good with a Shiraz.
