This simple, sweet tasting, crumbly bread is about as easy as bread baking gets. There's minimal kneading and no proving! The resulting loaf is perfect when lightly toasted on a grill and served with offaly treats like parfait or seared liver.
Prepare a fire on the ground and allow it to burn down to coals.
Lightly butter and line a 20cm bread tin.
Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Pop in a pinch of salt then make a well in the centre of the flour, pour in the cold beer and gently mix until the dough is evenly combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared bread tin, then pour over melted butter.
Put the loaf tin into the camp oven, cover and put onto the fire. Bake for 40 minutes. The loaf should have a beautiful golden crust and sound hollow when tapped. Let stand on a wire rack and enjoy warm. Makes 1 loaf.
