You will need a fire!

Obviously where and when you chose to go camping will determine if you can have a campfire. In addition, you will need a fire! Once you have your fire going it’s the coals that will be used for your baking. It is always a good idea to carry dry yeast and bread making flour for a camping trip. Make sure that these items remain super dry by placing them in a North Storm Dry Bag.

Dry Bags are not just to keep clothes dry or keeping dust out. They are great for food too. Especially if travelling up North or where there is a lot of humidity i.e. tents, boats etc.

Furthermore, Dry Bags will also keep bugs out, they’ll have no chance of getting in there either.

What you’ll need

  • Camp Oven – Medium size is best
  • North Storm Dry Bag
  • Medium sized mixing bowl
  • Glad Wrap or plastic bag
  • Fire
  • Shovel
  • Car


  • 3 1/3 cups flour (bread making flour)
  • 1 sachet (7 gm) Dry Yeast
  • 1 1/3 cups warm Water
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Salt

Place this bowl on the floor of the warm car and leave it till doubled in size.


Place the warm water in bowl, add sugar and yeast. With a fork whisk briskly. Add a little of the flour and then add the oil and mix. Add remaining flour and salt and knead well with clean hands until dough feels silky smooth.

Place dough in the oiled bowl and cover with gladwrap, or place bowl into a large plastic bag.

Place this bowl on the floor of the warm car and leave it till doubled in size.

Once doubled, rework dough for 30 seconds and then place into the camp oven, and with a wet hand gently pat top of dough to moisten, put lid on.

Again place the camp oven on the floor of warm car and leave till dough almost doubled in size.

When ready to bake, remove a couple of shovels of coals from the fire and make a sperate bed of coals. Let’s call it Area-2. Make sure Area-2 is a meter or so away from the campfire. Ensure Area-2 in a safe place and prepped with a circle of rocks.

Place the camp oven onto the bed of coals in Area-2 and pile 2 or 3 more shovels on top of lid.

Cook until dark golden brown and the bottom of the bread sounds drummy when you tap on it. Time varies according to wind and heat of fire. Usual cooking time is approx. 20 mins – 25 mins. Again, dependent on conditions.
