White bread recipe - From the cast iron pot from the fireplace

White bread recipe | ORYOKI recipe collection

Bread is a staple food that has been consumed worldwide for millennia. There are many different types of bread made in various cultures and regions of the world, but the fundamental principle of bread production through the combination of simple ingredients such as flour, water, and yeast or sourdough remains the same.

The classic among breads

Compared to other types of bread, white bread is made from finer wheat flour, which has removed the germ and bran of the wheat kernel. As a result, plain white bread has a smooth, fine crumb, and a soft texture compared to whole wheat bread. What makes white bread special is its mild, neutral flavor profile, making it delicious when paired with various toppings and spreads. Additionally, due to its soft texture, it's easy to chew and digest, making it a popular choice for individuals who are unwell or have a sensitive stomach. Other examples of well-known baked goods made from wheat flour include Ciabatta, flatbread, baguette, or toast.

Bake outdoors with a cast iron pot

It's surprisingly easy to bake good bread on the grill. Especially during the summer months, it's a great way to enjoy fresh bread and avoid heating up the oven inside the house. Using a cast-iron vessel, in particular, brings several advantages to bread baking:

  • Even Heat Distribution: A cast-iron container distributes heat evenly, resulting in uniformly baked and perfectly cooked white bread.
  • Moisture: The cast-iron vessel retains moisture in the bread dough, leading to a moist and soft loaf.
  • Crust: The cast-iron vessel creates a crispy crust that gives the white bread a unique texture and flavor.
  • Durability: Cast-iron vessels are highly durable and can last for many years with proper care.

However, when baking on an open fire, there are some important considerations to ensure that the baking is both recipe-successful and safe.

  • Preparation of the Fire Pit: Ensure that the fire pit is adequately prepared by providing enough fuel and fire starters. Be careful to ensure sufficient ventilation in the fire pit and that there are no dry branches or leaves near the fire pit.
  • Monitoring Baking Time: Baking on an open fire can be more challenging to control than baking in the oven. Monitor the prescribed baking time and check the browning of the bread at regular intervals.

Step 1

Mix the type 550 wheat flour, yeast, sugar and salt together in a bowl. Gradually add lukewarm water and mix everything together with your hands.

Step 2

Knead the dough thoroughly on a tray. As soon as the surface of the dough is smooth and has the consistency of an earlobe, roll it into a large ball. Tip: If the dough is still too sticky or too dry after kneading, you can add a little more flour or water as required.

Step 3

Now return the dough to the bowl. Then sprinkle it with a little water and cover it with some cling film. Leave the dough to rise in a warm place for 30-40 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the dough from the bowl after the proofing time and knead it again thoroughly. Then leave it to rise a second time in a warm place for 20-30 minutes.

Step 5

Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a small ball.

Step 6

Grease your cast-iron pan with a little butter so that the white bread does not stick to the sides later. Then arrange the 8 small balls evenly in the pan.

Step 7

Sprinkle the dough with a little water again and cover with a lid. Leave the cast iron pot to ferment in a warm place for 30-40 minutes. In the meantime, you can prepare the fire or grill and bring it up to temperature.

Step 8

Now place the pot in the fireplace. Also place charcoal on the lid and sides. After 8-10 minutes baking time, the white bread will be well browned and ready to bake.

Step 9

Turn the cast-iron pan with the lid upside down and carefully loosen the white bread. Allow the bread to cool slightly before slicing. Enjoy your meal!

Tip: Our TamiPan is an extremely versatile cast-iron pot, especially convenient for camping. The pot can be used for baking, steaming, frying, and cooking with charcoal or firewood.
