Here is an extremely easy and non-messy way to make freshly baked bread in 15 minutes in the campsite. No more semi-moulded crushed bread from your backpack:)

-Prepare at home your favorite mixture of flours and put it in small plastic bags, approx 150-250 grammes each. This will give bread for two people, 1 meal.
(you can also buy ready flour mixes in the shop if you don't know what to mix)

Using 1-2 liter bags are practical sizes. It is also smart to use two bags into each other to avoid potential mess if one is punctured.

-Do not add yeast to the flour mix, but use 1 teaspoon baking powder in the mix. The baking powder will make the dough rise as soon as you add water at camp.

-When it is time to prepare your meal in the campsite, add a small cup of water into the bag and work the dough inside the bag for some minutes until the dough is smooth. Add a little more water if it seems too dry.

-Heat some butter or oil in your frying pan. Use careful simmering so the butter/oil is not burned.

-Put the dough into the pan and squeeze it evenly out with a spoon etc

-Fry gently for 6-9 minutes. Flip over sometimes. When you hear a hollow sound by tapping the bread, it is done

Enjoy the heavenly smell and taste of freshly baked bread out in the wilderness:) Easy luxury.

this is a beautiful thing! just finished earl shaffer's "WALK THROUGH SPRING" about his 1948 thru-hike (the first) of the AT. he mentions pan bread as one of his meals and i've been looking for recipes . i use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour + 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda + a little sugar for a wholesome bread (and sometimes cinnamon and raisins). is that a banks fry bake pan in the photo? this ratio fills a 9 " pan nicely and is excellent for breakfast with coffee! also, i find that grinding fresh ground coffee additionally in a coffee grinder for about a minute makes a great "instant" coffee in camp that doesn't need to be brewed.
