Some time ago we wondered if a mess tin would fit in our new Anevay Stove, and if we would be able to bake a bread in it. Since we like some challenge, we decided to put it to the test. The mess tin fit perfectly, like it was made for it. And we were easily able to bake a bread inside this foldable stove. This no fail technique and recipe will work in almost any situation, so whether you are at home trying to brush up your baking skills, or outdoors and hungry for some fresh bread – give it a try!
Anevay Frontier Stove
A couple of weeks ago we told you how much we like this little stove! One of the things we like about it, is how easily it can be carried, folded and build up. It has a removable lid for cooking, and can hold a mess tin inside. We like storing some tinder and kindle inside, so we know we can lite a fire quickly. When we go canoeing, our surroundings are wetlands, other than willows no trees can be found. So we have to be careful about tinder and fuel. Luckily, the stove burns very economical.
And now the recipe! Easy, fool proof, and no dirty hands.
You will need:
Sparkling Water (or still water, and if you like a drop of lemon juice)
If you want to get fancy add some seeds. You could even add cheese, little pieces of bacon. Or go for a sweet bread by adding some vanilla sugar, raisins and nuts.
Cover your mess tin with about 1 cm (0,4 inch) of flour, we used whole wheat spelt flour.
Add a teaspoon of baking powder and a teaspoon of salt. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
Then add a tablespoon of oil and mix very well with the dry ingredients.
To activate the baking powder to its full potential, we used sparkling water. If not at hand, still water works fine too! If you’d like you could use a drop of lemon juice to activate the baking powder instead.
Add the water little by little, making sure to mix it really well in before adding more. You will see the dough will get less sticky, and you will be able to make a ball out of it.
For the last step, lift the dough ball out of the mess tin, and add some oil to prevent burning while baking.
Cover the mess tin with a larger mess tin, or aluminium foil, make sure not to wrap it up too tightly, to keep the air flow going.
Put on low heat, such as embers in a stove or campfire. Check regularly and turn when needed. Your bread is ready when it is golden brown, and sounds hollow when you knock on it!
This bread may not look like a whole lotta bread, but if you use whole wheat flower, it will be the perfect serving size for one!
This recipe is very similar to the No Knead Dutch Oven Bread we posted earlier. Definitely check it out if you like this one. Did you know you can also follow us on Instagram?
