Just wondering if anyone here has had experience at cooking bread and or cake, on the road in a Weber Q Hooded Gas BBQ. IF so do they have a recipe and or links to recipes for the same. Cake and Bread are only things we havent cooked in the Weber Q....They are brilliant for pizzas( if ya have the stone) and roasts !!

Hi Kevmac,

No recipe required for bread. You can buy breadmix in a 600g bag and everything you need to know is on the pack.

I use Lauke Crusty White for my camp oven but there is no reason whatsoever that you cannot use the Weber. The amount of water to add is listed on the pack, whether you are mixing the dough in a bread machine, or mixer, or mixing by hand.
One recomendation I will offer is to invest in a good quality bread pan.
Just mix the dough, kneed it for a few minutes, transfer the dough into the pan and leave in a warm place for a couple of hours or so until the dough has risen, then pop into the weber for about 1/2 hour. As you get near the time mentioned, tap the bread with your fingers, or knuckles. If you hear a "hollow" sound, the breasd is ready for eating.

Alternatively, you can use pre-prepared frozen dough. Allow the dough to reach ambient temperature, knead it a little, place into the bread pan and again leave in a warm place to prove.

Go for it!

We have had no trouble cooking damper, bread and cakes in our Baby Q. Just check before you start that the tin you plan to use will fit in. We stand cake tins on the trivet. Use any recipe you like and make it the way you would in an oven. It is probably best with cakes to start with a simple recipe that is not terribly temperature sensitive or delicate until you have had a practice eg Date and walnut loaf worked a treat for our first (Margaret Fulton recipe but they are all much the same). With bread we usually just make a cobb shape and don't worry about a tin. Just give it a go! Lynne
