I've recently purchased a new reflector oven - something I've been wanting for quite some time...

Just wondering if anyone has any advice to offer, or favorite reflector oven recipes?

Are the premade bread and muffin mixes available at the grocery store any good?
Do these work well in the reflector oven?

Any advice to this "campfire baking newbie" appreciated...

One of my favorites is cinnamon rolls......
Just make up a batch of bannock, then roll it out flat.
Spread a layer of margarine on it,
On top of the margarine sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon powder.
Roll the whole thing up and place in the reflector oven until done.
YUMMY!

Micmac,

Don't screw up like I did the first time. I figured a nice bed of coals is best for cooking. Wrong, I burned the bottom of everything. Then I went on a trip with a buddy who is wise in the ways. He had a nice bed of coals and a big supply of sticks that he keep feeding in to provide a high flame for good top heat.
Now i have no problems cooking on the reflector oven.

I don't buy the pre- packaged stuff because it is quite costly for minimal number of servings.

Instead I package my own ziplocks of the following

- a few packages of basic white yeast bread dough ( for cinamon buns, pizza dough, dinner rolls 2 weeks into a trip etc...)
- a few packages of brownie mix
- a few packages of cookies

I use many if the “Just add water” mixes for muffins and breads. They come in single packs that will make 4-6 muffins but instead I bake the whole thing in a 9” pan. Lemon poppy seed is my favorite but there are blue berry and banana walnut flavors too. Even a bisect mix works well and you can onion powder for onion rolls.

Everything works, but just make sure they aren't full of Trans Fat or you will be huffing and puffing up the portages.... :wink:

We love to make Pizzas on flat bread and then brownies from the box. Some brands require only adding water, quick and easy and a real big hit on trip.
