Beer Bread in the dutch oven

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this qualifies as dutch oven cooking, because I left my lid at home....but I made do with what I had and baked some bread in a DO while camping last week.

I lined the DO with foil, placed a pan in the bottom and oiled er up. lol

Kind of spread the batter in the pan....

Since I forgot my lid, I covered the pan with foil and added a second pan with hot coals on top.

I had a rack of spares going earlier, so I put the foiled ribs back on with a pouch of broccoli (I like broccoli lol)

Covered the ribs with a make shift lid....to hold in heat.
Had to use an oven rack because it was a bit windy.

The bread came out perfect.......

The ribs and broccoli weren't bad either.....

The leftover bread made some pretty tasty french toast the next morning....

Thanks Abelman, Mike and Phil!! It was pretty good hot off the fire and slathered in butter..biggrin.gif

Wish I wouldn't have left my lid at home, but the second pot with coals did the trick.

Thanks erain and White Cloud. Seems like at home I do not use them often enough. Mainly for pots of beans and smoked ham hocks when I'm having a cookout.
I should use my DO's more.

Looks good as usual Cowgirl. Sometime I use round cake pan liners in my DO's to avoid cleaning or if I am cooking for a bunch, I can have one pan of, say biscuits cooking and another ready to put in the DO when the first pan gets done.

3 cups of self rising flour

1/4 cup of sugar and a little bit of salt.
