  • Tin Can Sandwich Bread

    Ingredients

    Dough/Bread machine
    1 cup warm water
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 egg, slightly beaten
    salt to taste
    1/4 cup finely minced sun-dried tomato
    1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 package (or 1 tablespoon) yeast

  • Directions
    Mix all ingredients to create dough
    Spray insides of two tall tomato-juice-size cans
    Divide dough and place in cans
    Cover cans and let rise for an hour
    Place cans in cold oven
    Turn oven on to 400 degrees and allow bread to heat inside oven for 15 minutes
    After 15 minutes, turn oven down to 350
    Let bake for 15 more minutes at 350
    Let cool and enjoy!

  • Banana Bread
    Banana Bread
  • Ingredients
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ½ cup butter
    ¾ cup brown sugar or turbinado sugar
    2 eggs, beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 1/3 cup mashed banana

  • Directions
    Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease 4 soup or vegetable tin cans with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt; stir. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs, vanilla, and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture, until just moistened. Pour batter evenly into 4 greased soup or vegetable tin cans. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until skewer inserted in middle comes out clean.

  • Allow bread to cool in cans. After cooling, pour bread out of the can, slice, smear with butter (optional), eat, and enjoy. Or wrap and give away. (If not giving away the same day as having baked, you will need to store in a sealed container or bag in the refrigerator to maintain freshness. Can store up to 3 days in refrigerator or 2 weeks in the freezer. If placing in freezer, take bread out of can to freeze and return to cleaned can when presenting.)

  • Make crescent rolls over the campfire.

  • Ok, so once you have your fire going and you are waiting for it to burn down to a pile of embers, carve your stick to roast your crescent roll on. Look for a nice stick that is rather thick, about as thick as your picky or so, and has a Y bend in it. After slicing the bark off the Y and the handle, "braid" the crescent roll around the Y. This will make the dough thinner than if it is simply wrapped around the stick, reduces cooking time and allows it to cook evenly and doesn't leave you with a gross sticky mass of uncooked dough in the center. Yuck.
