Breadhenge - The Buckwheat Dolmen

I’ve been doing a lot of test bakes for my Menhir Sarrasin recipe and, yesterday, looking at three of them on the cooling rack, my inner Stone Age man asserted itself. I built a dolmen. A lot easier than with two hundred ton rocks, although tricky to balance until I dug out some cocktail sticks.

Yeah, yeah, I know a henge is a entire circle of standing stone. I’m jut having fun. Here’s a real dolmen:
