Pioneer Bread
« on: November 28, 2016, 11:40:58 PM »
This recipe dates back to the 1850's.

Pioneer Bread

2 1/4 cups of flour
1 cup of warm water
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until sticky and
bake on a greased pan for 20 minutes at
350 degrees or until top is browned.
This can also be made on the trail in a dutch oven.
It can be cooked on a rock or even in the ashes.
The bread can be in any shape, but pat it down so it
is only an inch or an inch and a half thick prior to baking.

Purty darn good!  :hairy

Rondo, I've made a very similar recipe while out camping with my Scouts years ago and just pull off a good egg size chunk, stretch it out and wrap around a cleaned stick and hold over the fire turning until brown, when you pull it off the stick, any uncooked dough will usually be stuck to said stick and simply cook again, have also done this with cheap refrigerator biscuits, if you close off the end of the dough you can pull from the stick and them take an old school restaurant style ketchup bottle full of jelly or jam and insert in the open end and squeeze , great snack around an evening fire! ( pudding works too!)

Price is high, but that's for 12, 2 pound boxes!
