What is your boat bread recipe.

One fond memory from childhood is coming into the house after working in the yard and having my senses overwhelmed with the aroma of fresh baked bread. Baked in an oven or on a griddle it was a regular accent the fresh meals prepared from our garden.

With the outlook being good that I will be back on the water soon I am preparing myself and my expectations for the future. One provision I have been told works well on a boat is bread. Most everything you would need to cook loaf or flat bread will keep for very a long time on a boat when stored properly so it is down to being creative with a few ingredients to give you some variety.

I would love to hear everyone's favorite recipes for this basic staple of life that we in modern times all too often take for granted.

Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

Loaf of bread that is good for the two of us for 4-5 days.
1. 1 kg of flour (me usually mix 1/2 white and 1/2 whole grain)
2. 6 tsp of salt
3. 1-2 tsp of caraway and/or other seeds of your choice
4. 1 tbs of dried yeast
5. luke warm water
6. pinch of sugar
Mix 4-6 and let it sit for a while. Bubbles will appear. Then mix everything else together and start kneading. If you want "hard" that will last longer, use as little water as possible. If you want "softer" bread, add more water. We usually don't knead the dough for more than 10 minutes.
Let is rise for about 40-60mins, depending on the ambient temperature. Than bake in pre-heated oven at 200 degrees C.
Then enjoy.

Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

I am very interested, I have no oven on the boat so will be watching this thread for bread I can do on a griddle. I have also read of someone using the inside of a crockpot with the lid on up on deck and it will get hot enough throughout a day to bake a loaf of bread. Has anyone done this?

Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

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

Pop a Pillsbury open, follow directions.

Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

I'm still playing with this one Pressure Cooker Bread: less energy, less time, REAL bread! | hip pressure cooking - pressure cooker recipes and tips! for the pressure cooker. My cooker too wide and shallow to accomodate a 1-lb coffee can; so instead I use 2 21-oz Bruce's Yams cans, and cut the cooking time by 5 min. Used 1/2 whole wheat flour in place of 1/2 of the white. Came out pretty darn impressive for something that didn't take all afternoon!

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 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.
