This is a quick bread and needs no yeast.
2 cups flour

bake any way you can.
Happy Camp'in to ya for 2013!

I just use bisquick, but make sure the texture is very thick. You can fry up three or four "biscuits" at a time in a decent sized fry pan. I'll add lots of stuff to make them "power biscuits" such as oatmeal, grape nuts, cranberries, coconut etc... Helps if you have a fry pan with a lid. Fry with butter, coconut butter, oil, whatever. Have also made them savory with herbs, cheese, salami. Have added tuna fish and a little corn meal to make fish cakes. Lots you can do with such a simple thing as bisquick...

I might be heavy on the salt.
Do you guys use a Dutch Oven?|
Posted by: eckilson on Feb-20-13 5:14 AM (EST)
I bought one and have been playing around with it on my gas grill with a heat diffuser and Dutch Oven Dome from Camp Chef. It works amazing. Made cinnamon rolls (Pillsbury from the tube) and brownies (from the box) - keep the bottom heat low and it comes out just like they were done in a regular oven. When it warms up I'll try it with charcoal.

most of my adult life. It's a big thing in my canoe club (lots of contests and good natured ribbing). A couple of years ago I won a GSI aluminum DO. After using it a few times I decided I wanted a bigger one as well. I swallowed hard and bought one (they're not cheap and it's not as though I'm short on DOs) and have hardly used the iron ones since. My point is if you're just beginning to experiment with DO cooking you might at least want to check out the anodized aluminum ones before you get into it too deep. They'll spoil you.

why soda and powder?|
Posted by: suzanneh on Feb-20-13 4:10 PM (EST)
Not to be nit picky BUT, generally you don't use baking soda in a recipe unless you also have an 'acid' - that could be anything such as vinegar, yoghurt, juice... Between that and the AMOUNT of salt, this would taste very good.
there are hundreds if not thousands|

Make sure you include some citrus juice so you don't suffer the fate of English sailors.
Posted by: rjh on Feb-23-13 10:29 AM (EST)
I'm not sure about the baking soda.
Posted by: kayamedic on Feb-23-13 12:00 PM (EST)
Posted by: suzanneh on Feb-23-13 5:35 PM (EST)
I was questioning your recipe as soda is usually only used in recipes where an acid is present. W/o an acid, no reaction takes place and then the soda creates an off flavor. Baking powder contains both acid and base and it reacts twice - first upon getting wet and second upon heat.
Posted by: rjh on Feb-23-13 6:34 PM (EST)
I think you must be correct.
