Crusty White Bread


3 ½ Cups of Bread Mix Flour
1 ½ tsp Dry Yeast
325 ml Luke Warm Water

Mix flour and yeast together
Add water and mix thoroughly to a moist dough
Place dough on a floured bench top and knead for 10 minutes
Place the dough in a bowl and cover with glad wrap and let it prove in a warm place until approximately double its size
Using a sieve place a layer of flour onto the bottom of the camp oven you are going to use
Collapse the dough and remove from the bowl
Place dough on a floured bench top again and knead for 2 minutes
Place dough into the camp oven to prove for a second time - until approximately double its size
When the dough is ready put three slices (if you wish to) in the top of the dough with a sharp knife.
Lightly spray the dough with a fine mist of water
Put the camp oven lid back on and place it on a bed of coals.
Place coals on the lid of the camp oven - you want a hot oven around 220 degree C
Cook for approximately 35 minutes - until the loaf makes a nice hollow sound

We served it fresh with a nice curry
