    Soda bread in double skillet

    For the days when you run out and don't feel like going to the shops.

    8 oz (250g) Strong wholemeal flour (I'm sure that white flour would be OK)
    1/4(quarter) (1.25ml) tsp salt
    1 tsp (5ml) baking powder
    1/2(half) tsp (2.5ml) bicarbonate of soda
    1 tsp (5ml) soft brown sugar (not demerara) (any sugar would probably be OK)
    5 fl oz (150ml) milk and water

    Mix all together to make a soft dough and put in pre-heated skillet on medium to low heat for 30 mins.

    Not the prettiest of loaves, but it tastes good and is very easy. Measure out dry ingredients before you leave home and just add liquid when required.

    This looks great Wendy, I'm getting into a bit of cooking (simple stuff) just lately & this gives me the chance to try something new. All I need is to win the "double skillet comp"! Mind, it'll be the only thing I've ever won .
    On second thoughts, I may just order one.

      Wendy this is a really useful tip. We often run out of bread and it is a pain just going out for that. Easy enough to make a small supply of dry ingredients for emergencies.

      May not be beautiful, as you say, but the 'proof of the pudding' as they say 'is not in the looking'!

        Hang fire, you might win the competition, we are hoping to sort it as soon as we get back from our holidays.

          Apologies everyone, but I've just realised that I have put the wrong amount of flour in my recipe.
          It should be 8ozs or 250g. The original recipe was double the amount I used and I didn't think properly when I copied it down.

          Hope that noone has had a big mishap.

          Message to self: Be more careful in future and think before writing

          Admin - is it possible to edit the original recipe?

            I made the bread yesterday (in the oven unfortunately). It's great! You will be pleased to know I made it in old money, so to speak, and didn't notice the grams!

            Thank you - I will try a camping version soon.

              Sorted that for you Wendy.

              Right now where did I put that sun tan lotion.

                Thanks for changing that, Graham. These 'senior moments' are coming too frequently.

                Lizp, glad that you found the recipe good - 'old money' has it's uses still. I'm going to try using half and half wholemeal and strong white flours next time.

                I also have a nice oatmeal bread recipe that I will try in the skillet sometime. Watch this space!

                  Following on from Wendy's suggestion, we took a small packet of bread mix with us last week for emergencies. We did run out after 4 days so resorted to the packet.

                  Used half a packet of the mix, followed all the instructions and then mixed it up in the double skillet pan. Kneaded it in the double skillet, made four rolls, covered it in clingfilm in the double skillet, put it on the dashboard. It rose perfectly and then just popped the top of the double skillet on and cooked it on the top of the hob for 30/35 mins and we had perfect tasty home baked rolls to go with our meal and two for lunch next day. Not even any washing up!

                    That's sounds good, Flo. I made some soda bread yesterday in the van, using half wholemeal and half white flour. It came out really well.
                    Clingfilm on a slightly damp surface makes a good place for kneading dough and no messy surfaces afterwards.

                      Although the Dimension has a very good beer cellar, we did run out and not yet got a recipe to make that in the van so I had to go without for the remainder of the week and it was just so hot last week!!!!!!!!!!!!! A nice cold lager would have gone down a treat after a long walk.

                        You could always make Ginger beer! its dead easy and likes hot weather.
                        Its a one bottle/jar/demijohn job. all the ingredients go in at once, stopper with rolled cloth bung, allow to ferment, it smells nice, and you dont filter, you pour and drink, chill the ferment vessel if you want cold G.beer.

                              don't like ginger beer But could be interested in a link to the other recipes using 2L plastic bottles. It is time I caught up with my kids in acquiring skills and knowledge in this area...I have never made a cocktail either...though have drunk quite a few.
