    What do you carry in your haversack? Why, your Haverbread, of course.

    Easy to make and originally done on a gridle. No yeast, no rise and fast to make. Just the thing for a 'bread' choice while camping.

    Havver Bread (Sometimes called Clapcake)
    6oz fine or medium oatmeal
    A pinch each of salt and bicarbonate of soda
    2oz flour
    Boiling water
    One tablespoon melted dripping or butter

    Mix together the dry ingredients and add fat with enough boiling water to make a pliable dough. Knead well and roll out thinly. Cut into rounds or triangles and bake until brown and crisp, about 25 minutes at 350F, 180C or gas mark 4. Serve buttered with cheese or preserves.


    Some fun history of the food -
    Yorkshire oatcakes/Haverbread
    Better than classic hardtack and these don't require double baking (drying)

    When I asked the recipe with a big curiosity, my friend said that it is really easy. She said that the recipe even has a special name. It is called 3-2-1 rolls because the ingredients include 3 packages baking powder, 2 cups yogurt and 1 cup olive oil. She didn’t give the amount of flour, she said I just need to add it gradually until I have a non-sticky dough. Don’t worry, I measured both the flour and baking powder for you - see the full piece.

    6. Shape the dough into 4 small patties.

    2. Stir in the olive oil and water until mixed.

    4. Sprinkle with olive oil and swirl around the pan to lightly coat.
    5. Shape the dough into 4 small patties.

    7. You can sprinkle them with rosemary or other herbs while they’re cooking.
    8. Serve immediately.
    Notes
    This olive oil bread is best served right away, but you can make it a day in advance if needed.

    I remember the first time I made this, I couldn’t believe that mixing up just a handful of pantry staples could make fresh bread!

    With a quick stir, you’ll end up with a shaggy dough like this.

    Technically this recipe makes 4 little mini loaves so if you wanted to be strict on portions you could serve 4 people with these. But they’re so delicious that you’ll probably want to eat (at least) 2. Or maybe that’s just me? My absolute favorite olive oil is California Olive Ranch olive oil, but any kind will do.

    I’m glad I can finally whip up a single serving of bread to serve with soups or salads without leaving a huge loaf of bread out on the counter.

    Simple and ez camp bread and thicker than the Haver bread.

    Have you ever made fine oatmeal? I had to look that one up.I am wondering if my grinder will turn my whole oats into a flour like substance.

    @Motomom34 Where did you purchase whole oats? I have never seen a source for them except Tractor Supply. Are they sourced locally?

    Sprouts market has bins of different oats. Check your Natural grocers and they should carry them. Also, if you cannot find the whole oats, Bob's Red Mills products have fine oats that could be used for the first recipe. I almost think one could use regular oatmeal, not the quick kind. Thin that would work?

    Yup - I just make a pass thru the food processor to make it a bit less granular.

    You may also find whole oats at a brewing supply store...
