    Andrew mate....

    Pretty much what Dogtooth said but try this for your bread dough:-

    1kg flour (bread or cake flour)

    1 pkt instant dry yeast

    1.5 teaspoons of salt

    1 350ml bottle of beer

    Handful of sun dried tomatoes and dried olives soaked in hot water for 40 minutes.

    Mix the dry ingredients and add the olives and tomatoes. Add the beer then fill the bottle with lukewarm water and add that. Knead and allow to prove for an hour or two. Knead down and place into greased flat pot then slash the top to stop it bursting the crust. Should fill pot to around 1/4 of the way when kneaded down. Allow to prove for 40 minutes then place to edge of coals and place a few on the lid. Takes around 40-60 minutes to bake. Can also be taken to the braai in a plastic bag and get the first prove on the way if you make it just before leaving home. Add a tablespoon of veg oil for a softer crust.

    Hint: the kneading is to stretch the dough and get air into it. Don't beat it to death or try to crush it. Can easily be done one handed once you have the technique of stretching and folding the dough down pat.

    Does anybody know a good recipe for a pot bread that can be cooked in a flat bottom cast iron pot, either over the coals or on a gas cooker??

    Sounds like a great recipe, mate, but methinks you need to come back to Gil's and civilisation post haste..! Gils Trad by the way at ZLBC towards a chilly sunset today was rather pleasant and I did take a sip or two for you!

    Ta muchly, Yer Honour....

    The Trad makes great hot cross buns as well. I'm working on a choc, marmalade and cinnamon beer bread (using Serious) to serve toasted with mulled ale. Got to experiment with it a bit when I get back. It is after all where the habit of toasting someone's health came from so why not resurrect it?
