    Brood (in ‘n yster brood-pot)

    – 500 g Bruismeel
    – 250 ml Karringmelk
    – 1 pakkie Bruin-uie sop
    – 1 koppie Gerasperde kaas

    Meng alles saam. Voeg nog melk by indien nie nat genoeg nie.

    – Smeer met botter/margarien
    – stof met meel
    – sit deeg in die pot

    – Sit potjie ‘n ent weg van vuur op ‘n dun lagie kole, bedek ook so 50% van die deksel met kole. (ek braai met hout, maar as julle brikkette gebruik behoort 8 onder en 4 bo te werk)
    – Ruil die kole sodra nodig
    – Hou dop, die brood behoort na 45-60 min reg te wees, toets deur ‘n skerp mes in the druk en dadelik uit the trek – daar moet geen deeg vas sit nie.

    Geniet met vars botter.

        Hi Dominik, glad to see you are following us!

        Here is the recipe in english:

        Bread (in cast-iron pot)

        – 500 g self raising flour
        – 250 ml buttermilk
        – 1 packet brown onion soup mix
        – 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

        Mix all the ingredients together. Additional milk can be added if mixture is too dry.

        – coat the inside of the pot with butter
        – dust with flour
        – put dough in the pot

        – Place the pot next to the fire (not too close, or the bread will burn). Put the pot on a thin layer of coals and put some coals on the lid, to cover about 50% of the lid. (we braai with wood, but if you use charcoal, about 8 pieces underneath and 4 on top should do the trick)
        – Change the coals when necessary
        – The bread should be ready after about 45-60 min. Test with a sharp knife, if there is no dough sticking to the knife, the bread is done.

        Enjoy with butter.
