Making Bread on the Road

I make bread at home 2-3 times a week. Mostly boules (round loaves), and cooked in a cast iron ComboCooker (dutch oven). I use most of the methods shown by Trevor Wilson on YouTube and Instagram.

Our next trip is coming up in a month and I intend to continue making bread on the road, and my ComboCooker fits in our fiver's oven, but I haven't used it there yet. Anybody out there baking bread on the road? Any hints to share? Adjustments for altitude?

Good luck, ovens are extremely poor at baking. Hot spots, burner close to the bottom of the pans. Be sure to get an oven thermometer because the temp gauge on the oven is useless. Are you sure your dutch oven will fit?

Good luck...it will be a challenge at best.

Because of the unevenness in RV ovens, I've heard that some lay a Pizza stone on the bottom shelf to help distribute heat more evenly.

Dutch oven you say? Get a camp style dutch oven and try your hand at baking with coals. You'd be surprised how even and how well you can control the temp. I can't imagine if it was 90+ degrees out and using the oven. It casts off a lot of heat.

I hadn't considered the heat inside the trailer during baking. Where we're going on this next trip we will be happy to have the heat. but I will keep that in mind during our warmer trips.

I was just going to take the bread machine on a long trip. Other wise I would just make bread at home.

I just stumbled upon a recipe for slow-cooker bread, which I'm thinking of trying out on our next trip.

https://www.bakedbyanintrovert.com/slow-cooker-bread/

Has anyone tried this?

We bought a Hamilton Beach bread machine to leave in the trailer, its great for longer trips and you can plug it in outside if you need to.

I was hoping to recoup some of my travel expenses!
