Baking bread in our camper
Backing bread in the camper
Cooking healthy and tasty food that is something I can lose myself in completely.
A great wish was to have an oven ‘on board’. And not one of those tiny ones you often see on campers, one you can only warm bread up in. No, I want to be able to enjoy the smell and taste of all types of wonderful creations and oven dishes.
Thank you dear Dad
Luckily I have a very handy and sweet dad. Beside many other jobs to make a cosy home out of our camper, he took the trouble to build in a gas oven. This made it possible for me to bake my second tasty and healthy bread! I gladly share the recipe with you. By the way this is truly a recipe that was made for sharing. I got this from my sweet friend Rianne. Who in turn got it from her sister-in-law, Lily. And I as well, have shared the recipe many times… So here it comes.
– 270 gram sunflower seeds
– 180 gram broken or whole line seed
– 130 gram chopped nuts (it is possible to do without them. When I am feeling lazy I skip this part)
– 290 gram oat flakes
– 4 table spoons chiaseeds
– 8 table spoons psyllium husk fibers (when you do not have these you can also double the amount chiaseeds but of course this will not have the beneficiary outcome for your intestines as these fibres have)
– 2 teaspoons of salt
– 2 tablespoons of honey
– 6 tablespoons of coconut oil (it is possible to let it melt first so it is easier to mix)
– 700 ml water
Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
When you have finished mixing, place in a greased baking pan and let the mixture rest for at least 2 hours. I prepare the bread usually the night before and place the bread in an oven that is preheated to 175 degrees. First bake the bread for 20 minutes in the baking pan. Then take it out of the pan and finish on a baking tray for about 30 to 40 minutes. The bread is finished when it sound a bit hollow when you tap on it. As you see I bake the bread in a pie shape. This is because it fits better into my new oven this way. You can also use a cake shaped pan. Let the bread cool for a while before slicing. And enjoy every slice after this. Bon appetite!
