Linda and Mikes Secret Bread Recipe
After much coaxing we have gotten Linda and Mike to share their much cherished camping bread recipe with the secret ingredient included.This quick and easy recipe is delicious and a real winner when on the road in Africa or around the campfire in Australia. Like most good camp fire breads it uses a can of beer as the magic ingredient!
Ingredients: • 500g self raising flour • 1 generous pinch of salt • 1 can of your favourite beer (room temperature) • ½ handful of sliced jalapenos or pepperdews (When in Africa, and there is a rumour that some Woolworths stock these in Australia) • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese and a little more to put on the top • ½ diced onion • ½ onion cut in thin strips for garnish
Method: 1. Mix the flour, salt, cheese, diced onions and jalapeno / pepperdews in mixing bowl. 2. Slowly add in the can of beer in small pours (No sipping in-between!!) and knead to create a dough like consistency. If you need more liquid add a little milk, water or juice from the jalepeno/pepperdew jar. 3. Place in a well-greased baking tray and garnish with ½ onion and cheese. 4. Place in pre-warmed camper fire oven for 30 to 40 minutes until golden brown. 5. Serve warm with heaps of butter and a cold beer around the campfire!
