4 Dec 2017

There is nothing as delicious as freshly baked bread from the campfire with loads of butter ! 


Dave's delicious bread recipe doesn't use a conventional camper oven but a ''Dutch Oven''or a  good quality cast iron pot and some hot coals ! 

Enjoy making this one its delicious ! 

 Remember to place some coals on-top of the dutch oven when baking 



  • 6 cups plain cake flour

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons castor sugar

  • 10g instant yeast

  • 100g margarine or butter

  • 1 cup luke warm milk

  • 3/4 cup of luke warm water


  1. Combine flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a bowl

  2. Melt margarine/ butter and mix with Milk and Water

  3. Then mix this liquid with dry ingredients in step 1

  4.  Mix thoroughly and knead until dough is elastic and no longer sticks to your hands.

  5. Place in a well greased Dutch oven (cast iron pot) , leaving enough room for the dough to rise. The dough will roughly double in size

  6. Cover and place on good moderate coals (place a few coals on the lid as well). bake for an hour or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
