Bread is a staple food that should accompany any camping trip.
It’s light, compact, and hearty – and even your pickiest kid will eat it!
We’re going to show you how to make delicious, “no knead” bread on your next camping trip!
Here’s the equipment that you’ll need:
- Kitchen Scale
- Measuring Cup
- Measuring Spoons
- Large mixing bowl
- Large plastic pot
- 1 Tablespoon of Salt
- 1 Tablespoon Dry Yeast
- 3 cups of unbleached white flour
- 680ml of Water
Step #1 – Prepare The Dough
First, add the 3 cups of white flour into the mixing bowl. Then, sprinkle salt to the mixing bowl and cover with flour (Make sure that the yeast does NOT directly touch the salt!)
Sprinkle the yeast on top, then add water into the bowl. Begin gently mixing everything together, pulling the bottom over the top, repeating.
You will know the dough is ready when it looses its stickiness and holds its shape.
Finally, add the dough (when it’s ready) into the large plastic pot. It will take about 30-45 minutes for the dough to rise.
Step #2 – Cooking the No Knead Bread
Start building your fire. While you’re waiting for the good embers to form, locate some good, clean sticks to use for cooking the bread.
Divide the dough into circles about the size of your fist. Then, stretch the dough into a long, flat “snake.” Try to make the line as thin as you can.
Holding one of your clean sticks that you found, gently wrap the dough around the other end of the stick.
Your dough is now ready to cook! Hold the dough over the embers, making sure not to touch the dough to the embers. You will see the dough begin to rise as it cooks. After the dough has risen over some time, flake off a bit of the bread to make sure it’s cooked thoroughly.
