Camp Oven Bread

Camp Oven BreadPrep Time: 90 minutes
Cook Time: 25 – 30 minutes
Serves: 1 large or 2 small loaves



  • 600g bread mix
  • 2 tsp dried yeast
  • 380ml lukewarm water


  1. Blend bread mix and yeast in a large bowl.  Add lukewarm water and mix to form a dough
  2. Knead vigorously for at least 10 minutes until smooth and elastic
  3. Dust with a little flour and return to the bowl.  Cover to prevent skinning and keep in a warm environment (the car is ideal) until double in size – approximately 40 minutes.
  4. Knead lightly to “degas” the dough and place in a well oiled bread tin. Place tin in warm environment again until dough is at least double in size.
  5. Place tin in your camp oven that has been preheated and cook for around 25 – 30 minutes. Use coals underneath and quite a few coals on top of the camp oven.

Hint: Use a rack in the bottom of the camp oven, and rotate oven every now and then to ensure even heating. The bread is cooked when tapping produces a nice hollow sound.
