Easy camping beer bread

#1

Post by Crips »

What you need.

A packet of 500g self raising flour
1 beer (if you don't want to taste or smell the beer use a light beer or if you want some beer flavor use something better like Windhoek, all depending on your taste)
A small can of chakalaka with corn, or just corn or just some grated cheese, whatever you feel like.

How to:
Start a fire to make coals, I like to use 20 to 30 brickets.

Mix all the dry ingredients, the self raising flour and your corn, cheese etc.

Then add the beer (340ml) and mix thoroughly.

Line your bread pot with butter and a little bit of flour, don't forget the lid!

Put your dough in the pot, you do not have to leave it to rise etc, its ready to go straight away.
You can grate cheese over or leave as is.

Then arrange the coals around your bread pot, I try leaving a small gap between the pot and the coals.
Place 3 coals on the lid.
Leave for 40 to 45min depending on wind etc. and it should be done. You can stick a kebab stick or toothpick into the bread and if it comes out clean it is done.

If there is a lot of wind the pot does cool a bit so try to avoid a windy area.

That's it, enjoy!

Kurt's first bread in his new Bread Bin was a disaster.
Well the parts that weren't burnt were OK, but...

His last bread (in Augrabies) looked awesome.
I wasn't offered any though... :|

The heat of the coals?
I normally leave the coals to go white with ash and then use that.
Not sure what you would classify that as? Hot to warm?
