No-Knead Bread baked directly in an RV oven or over a campfire

We recently made this easy, delicious, and oh-so-yummy-smelling bread and we may have set a record for the fastest consumption of a loaf. Half of it was gone before I even thought to take a picture.

Now it’s your turn. Grab your Dutch Oven and enjoy some of the best homemade bread you’ll have this decade.

No-Knead Dutch Oven Bread

  • 3 CUPS All-Purpose FLour
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 1/2 CUPS Warm Water (water shoud be around 110 – 115 degrees F )


In a large bowl, whisk flour, salt, and yeast until mixed. Pour in warm water and use a wooden spoon to stir until a dough forms. The mixture should be wet and pretty sticky.

Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for eight hours until dough rises.

Pre-Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Once preheated, place a 6-quart Dutch oven (with cover) in the oven 30 minutes before baking (do not put the dough in yet. This is a very important step).

Punch down dough and flour a sheet of parchment paper. Place the dough on parchment and quickly shape the dough into a ball. If you’d like, sprinkle the top lightly with flour. Top with a sheet of plastic wrap and let rest 30 minutes.

Remove Dutch oven, uncover dough and carefully transfer to Dutch oven, with the parchment paper still under the dough. Place lid back on Dutch oven and return to oven. Bake bread 45 minutes covered, then uncovered another 10 to 15 minutes until dough is baked through and golden brown on top.

If you can wait, let it cool slightly. We couldn’t wait and my fingertips hurt typing this, but it was worth it. Slather in butter and enjoy!

Don’t think your RV oven will work? No sweat. Grab a cast iron like this one and give it a go using hot coals and your campfire.
