Early morning is my favorite time at our medieval camp. I love stepping out of our Bedouin tent into the misty dawn, pulling my scarf tight around my shoulders against the chill.
My friend Ann is always up early with me and our first order of the day is building a fire and heating water in a big iron pot to make a steaming cuppa. Our friend Stacey made delicious medieval teas for us and my favorite was the chamomile apple tea. Mmm, it smelled so good.
It is deceptively simple with only three ingredients – flour, salt, and yogurt – yet absolutely scrumptious.
Simply mix everything together into a soft dough.
Campfire Fry Bread
1 cup plain flour
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup plain yogurt
oil for frying
- Mix all ingredients together, kneading to form dough.
- Tear off golf ball size pieces, flatten and roll out thinly.
- Heat oil in pan over campfire. Add fry bread and cook 2-3 minutes until top puffs up. Turn and cook another 3-5 minutes until cooked through.
- Serve warm.
