Baking bread in a campsite could be very dangerous. The smell draws in too many undesirables who would steal your bread right out of your hands. Much like cooking Carne Asada.

Now if you want to be the party headquarters go for it.

Marsha - may I check some terminology with you? I am originally a Brit, now living in Canada, and some words just mean different things in different places!


You mentioned muffins. Are these the cake like items often made with healthier ingredients and cooked in small cake tins? Blueberry muffins, cranberry muffins, bran muffins etc.. Or maybe you mean English muffins that are a bit like a bread dough pancake.


You also mentioned using rings. Do you mean crumpet rings? How do they help with making biscuits? Have you had any success with making your own crumpets (I can make 'sort of' crumpets but haven't got to where I can make them just like the ones from the bakery).


As a Brit I know the word biscuit to mean a thin, usually crunchy thing like a cookie. However, my Canadian in-laws call scones biscuits. What sort of things were you making with those rings?


Hope you can understand this - I've been living with this confusion in terminology for many years. Mostly I just try to remember that when Person A says biscuit they mean an English style one and that Person B means a scone. I hardly ever meet anyone who isn't British who know what a crumpet is.

Reading her post, what I see is "english muffins", so the bread-like breakfast things you'd toast then add butter and maybe jelly, or egg and cheese and sausage for a breakfast sandwich. Not sweet. Basically toast. Often sourdough.

Muffin tin, is I'm thinking what she means by "rings". A cookie sheet but with a bunch of small round depressions to contain the muffins and shape them.

Eh?

Web search on English Muffins led me to an Alten Brown recipe that uses rings that one puts the dough into on the griddle. I think it was foodnetworks, or something.

I am no more able to make muffins than I am able to put in a link to the site! At least I now know what rings are. This would be easier camping than rolling out dough and cutting into circles.

You have illustrated my problem with terminology. I call those things crumpets - and there is no way I'd try making them while camping.

a round soft unsweetened bread resembling a muffin, cooked on a griddle or the like, and often toasted. British Slang. a sexually attractive woman. Origin of crumpet.

Doesn't say anything about British slang here - but it does show a recipe for crumpets.

Making fresh flour tortillas is very easy and they are delicious. They make a perfect wrap sandwich. Breakfast tacos made with flour tortillas wrapped around scrambled eggs and a sausage link or bacon strip. Flat breads are a tradition for nomadics around the world. They cook in a just a few minutes and all you need for equipment to cook a tortilla is a skillet.

The rings, for making what Americans call "English" muffins, is indeed a crumpet ring. The ring is used for both things. A crumpet is made with more hydration than an English muffin. They have a holier texture than the more bready English muffin. The English muffin is made with yeast and/or sourdough.

A muffin is made in a muffin/cupcake tin. What we call a muffin is usually, but not always, sweet, and a lot like a cupcake without frosting. There is no yeast for leavening in a muffin. It is a like a small individual, sweet cake like bread.

Biscuits do not use rings. They are generally leavened with baking powder. Sometimes sourdough is used. Since biscuits are a quickly made bread, with yeast is only used in a few biscuit recipes. They are put next to each other in a pan for support. Hopefully you will end up with a light, fluffy, individual biscuit. It is not at all like a cracker or cookie, unless you are kneading the lightness out of it. Then it is called a mistake, or what my husband called hockey pucks, when I was first learning to make them.

:Hazel have you never had a Canuck Muffin or white man's Bannock as it was us who taught the Natives how to make Bannock not them to us. We make banana, sukini, strawberry, rasberry, pumkin, raisin, cherry Muffins but the best yet is Bannock come out hot and and stick strawberry or Rasberry jam on them and they melt in your mouth they are so good. Anyone can make up a Bannock mix and cook over any old fire or stove.
Muffins and Bannock are 100% Canadian.

I make bannock too - different from the other things mentioned. The grandkids like to wrap some dough around a stick and cook it over the fire. I have made Canadian style muffins but they are too much like cake for us to have regularly.


There seem to be endless versions of bread type stuff - some sweet too - like Yorkshire tea cakes and cinnamon buns.
