    Reflector Oven “Fauxcaccia“

    This is a bread recipe I found in a camping book that I have slightly modified. Requires no kneading. You end up with a free-form loaf that, when sliced, looks and tastes a lot like focaccia so I am calling it Fauxcaccia. Mix the dry ingredients (other than yeast in advance) to make it easier.

    In large bowl combine 2 cups all purpose flour and 1 cup bread flour (can use 3 cups all purpose if you don’t have bread flour), 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and one package instant yeast. Add 1 to 1&1/2 cups hot (not boiling) water and stir until you have a big sticky mess. Cover and let rise, preferably in a warm spot, for at least an hour. An hour and a half is even better. Grease a baking sheet, hold the bowl just above it and invert, shake until the dough falls out and goes “splat” on the baking sheet. Bake in reflector oven until it starts to brown.

    This recipe is plenty for 4 to 6

    Karen and I were hoping to try this last weekend on a 4 day trip to the Upper Bog River and Low's Lake in the Adirondacks. Time constraints and cold temperatures conspired against us. Next trip!
