Cooking time 30-40 mins


2 cups of self raising flour

¾  cup of soda water, beer or water

 2 tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce

2 tablespoons of oil

1 good pinch of salt



Place flour and salt in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the centre, pour in the oil, water and chilli sauce, mix together with a butter knife to form a soft dough.

Turn out onto a floured surface and press dough out to make a 1 cm thick disc, sprinkle cheese on the top roll dough over to encase the cheese and shape into a round loaf.

Place on an oiled baking tray and cook in a moderate camp oven on a low trivet with coals scraped to the edges for about 20 minutes, scrape coals to the centre and cook for further 5-10 minutes or until golden and crunchy.

Serve straight from the oven sliced or broken into chunks with a little cream cheese spread on to balance out the chilli.
