Camp Cooking * Bread

Best Ever Bread

This is my Best bread ever recipe over on my Going Green Blog.
The loaf was a little smaller as we got back too late so i pull out about a hand full of dough and used it to make nann bread.

3 cups Bread Flour
1/2 tsp Yeast
1 3/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cups Warm Water
for the full recipe instructions for the oven follow the above link.

Mix altogether to form a shaggy dough, leave in the bowl and cover, depending on the weather and how much time you have, leave to rise in a warm spot for at least a few hours longer if its not a warm day and you have to rise it outside.
This loaf ended up sitting for 2 days before i got to cook it.

As i have learned from a previous try you must have the bread dish up off the bottom of the camp oven or all you will get is a black loaf that's still doughy inside.

This bread took about 40 mins to cook, i hung it over the fire for the whole bake time, turning a couple of times. For the last 10 mins i placed coals on the lid to brown up the top.

The loaf may have been smaller bit it still had a good crust with a fluffy soft centre.
Enough to have with our Sausage Hot Pot and four thick slices for poached eggs the next morning.

I did notice that it didn't rise as much but that was due to all the cold weather and not much sun.
