    • 200ml milk

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat a Dutch oven (camp oven) over the fire.
    2. Rub the butter with your finger tips into the flour and salt to form a breadcrumb type texture.
    3. Add enough milk into the flour to form a light dough.
    4. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and gently knead just until dough comes together. Cut out round scones.
    5. Sprinkle flour on the bottom of the Dutch oven to stop sticking. Arrange the scones evenly over the base of the Dutch oven. Brush the tops with additional milk.
    6. Add enough heat to get the Dutch oven to about 190 degrees C. See below for a charcoal briquette guide to this.
    7. Cook the scones until you can smell them, the one additional minute, this will take about 15 minutes total.

    Getting the Correct Baking Temperature in a Dutch Oven

    Using charcoal briquettes to heat a Dutch oven is a consistent way to get an even temperature. This guide gives the typical ratio of briquettes...

    10" DO | 190 deg C | Top 16 | Bottom 7
    12" DO | 190 deg C | Top 18 | Bottom 9
    14" DO | 190 deg C | Top 22 | Bottom 12

    This amount however can change with environmental conditions such as wind, humidity and altitude.
