Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

I forgot about foccacia, an excellent bread that can be altered in several ways for variety.

RichH, take a look at "Tartine". He reveals some techniques that will be really useful for on boat bread making. No floured counters tops, etc, just kneading in a bucket.
Also, ice cubes (as many as you can) in the bottom of the oven just as you put in the bread to bake will give you a pretty good head of steam that disperses in about 10 minutes. I have altered my technique and the results have been very satisfying. Another good bread book is the "Bread Bible". It is full of typos and other errors, but the reciepes are very good.

Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

My standard recipe for when in port or at anchor is french bread baguettes or batards made from a yeasted poolish (starter sponge). All hand made, baked on an oven stone. and I spritz the oven walls with water to create the needed steam to get a good crust.

I will make french bread by the direct yeast method if in a hurry, but for any bread to taste good you need a long fermentation time and a long rising/proof time. If in a real hurry or when at sea, I'll usually make a quick focaccia (genoese flat bread)

Most important tool in making yeasted breads: infra red indirect thermometer to carefully monitor the ingredients and mixing temperatures - one of the most important considerations with bread making.

Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

For a boat without an oven or during the summer when you don't want to heat up the cabin, it seems to me the best bread would be a flat bread that can be cooked on a grill with a baking stone. All of the Indian and Middle Eastern breads along with English Muffins are candidates. Really good crusty European style bread really needs an oven in which you can control the moisture, and a long rising period to develop the flavors. Whether using a natural leaven (sourdough) or commercial yeast, breads that take five to six hours to rise and bake at very high temperatures are not well duplicated in a pressure cooker. So try some flat breads for a change, one big hunk of humanity exists on flat breads.

Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

I love this thread! As I am preparing for my first time as a liveaboard on a long term sail I've been trying to figure out everything I'll be able to cook. I will definitely be trying the beer bread and had already marked the hip cooking one as well.

Irish Soda Bread!!

4 cups (16 oz) of all purpose flour.
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon salt
14 oz of buttermilk (To make "Mock Butter Milk". Mix up two cups of freeze dried whole milk. Add two table spoons of white vinegar or lemon juice and allow the mix to sit for 15-20 minutes before using.)

Preheat the oven to 425 F. degrees. Lightly grease and flour a cake pan.

In a large bowl sieve and combine all the dry ingredients.

Add the buttermilk to form a sticky dough. Place on floured surface and lightly knead (too much allows the gas to escape). Shape into a round flat shape in a round cake pan and cut a cross in the top of the dough.

Cover the pan with another pan and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes. The bottom of the bread will have a hollow sound when tapped so show it is done.

Slice, add fresh butter and salt to taste and enjoy! Cover the remaining bread, if any, in a clean dish towel and lightly sprinkle water on the cloth to keep the bread moist.

FWIW...

Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

I've seen articles that discuss using a pressure cooker as the "oven" on a stovetop.
