Introduction: Camping Twisted Bread/ Schlangen Brot
Hmmm freshly baked bread in a campfire without any utensils , just on a stick. Yes as wild it may sound, is even tastier and easier to make.
the day prior to our camping date,I prepare the dough. It has the very basic ingredients
500gm bread flour
1sachet instant yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
1Tbs oil/ melted butter
2-3dl warm water or milk.
Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Knead the dough to a soft yet firm consistency. keep kneading for around 4-5 minutes. Place it in a bowl or better a box with a lid which you can carry along. Make sure the box is big enough leaving room for the dough to rise.
At the camp site:
once the fire has been lit, collect long sticks...I would suggest around 3 feet and of a thickness of an adult finger.
With your hand scoop out a handful of dough.Using both hands elongate the dough and then twist it,wrapping around the stick at one end.
Step 3: Baking
Holding the free end of the stick hold the bread over the flames or if you have a grill place it on the grill.
Make sure you keep turning the bread so that it is done in all directions.
In a very short time around 7-8minutes you should see a brownish crust being formed. When the crust is on all the sides of the bread your bread is ready!!
Alterations: you could add herbs or spices like cumin or oregano to the bread dough before baking.
You can also wrap the dough around a sausage to get a sausage twisty.
