About this recipe: This is a great recipe when you are starting to learn to bake in a Dutch oven. The recipe is simple and you can focus on controlling the heat while camping.
While you can heat your Dutch oven over a campfire, using charcoal briquettes is a consistent way to get an even temperature. Use the following guide to achieve a temperature of 190 degrees C:
25cm (10") Dutch oven | Briquettes: 7 bottom, 16 top
30cm (12") Dutch oven | Briquettes: 9 bottom, 18 top
35cm (14") Dutch oven | Briquettes: 12 bottom, 22 top
Number of briquettes can change with environmental conditions such as wind, humidity and altitude.
Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Place scones on a baking tray lined with parchment, brush with milk and bake for 15 minutes, or till lightly golden.
