baking bread over the campfire

Of all the camp cookery things you can get up to baking bread is probably one of the most tricky for the uninitiated. Not only is it a multi-stage process but yeast is a capricious thing when it comes to heat and cold and draft. But a bag of flour, yeast and salt is easy to pack, its dry weight makes it ideal. Just adding a splash water, a dribble of oil, some elbow grease, a bit of heat and you can have the smell of freshly baked bread wafting around the campsite. Its enough to win you many favours!

Below is a video on making the dough, proving it (warming it so the yeast raises the dough) and then cooking it in a dutch oven.
