Bread In A Bag

Contributed by: Brigitte R.

Going camping? You don't have to miss out on fresh bread just because you are in the middle of nowhere.

Make sure you pack 2 pots (one larger with lid, one smaller and a plastic bag a heavy duty freezer zip-lock bag 11"x11").

Cooking Time - 20 to 30 min

This recipe is even suitable for vegetarians.


  • 2 c. white bread flour
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 3 tbsp powder milk
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 package rapid rise yeast
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 c. hot water (125 to 130 degree F.)
  • extra flour for kneading


Put ingredients into a heavy-duty freezer zip-lock bag (about 11"x11").

Squeeze air out of the bag then shake and work bag with finger to blend all the ingredients.

Remove dough from bag and knead on flour surface.

Place formed bread back in bag and let it rise for 10 minutes.

Fill the larger of the 2 pots with 1 inch of water, then rest the second pot on top of water (this process acts as a heat diffuser).

Next, place the bagged bread in the smaller pot and loosely roll down the top of the bag (dont seal it).

Put the lid on the larger pot and boil until bread is fully baked (should take 20 to 30 min.). Remove from bag and eat while still warm.
