Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F / 176 degrees C, or if cooking outside, make sure the fire has glowing coals.
Use sunflower seed, coconut, olive oil or butter to grease the Dutch oven, or if using a loaf pan line it with parchment paper.
Empty the package of flour into a large mixing bowl.
Add the salt and sweetcorn, corn kernels, or sugar if you are not using corn at all, and mix.
Lastly pour the beer in gently, and combine to form a batter.
If using chives and/or cheese, add them at this stage.
Place dough into the greased Dutch oven, or into a loaf pan.
Set aside in a warm place for the dough to rise for around twenty minutes.
Place in preheated oven for an hour, or set over a fire with glowing coals with hot coals placed on the lid of the Dutch oven.
After an hour, remove from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool.
The bread is done when the bottom sounds hollow when rapped.
If it doesn’t sound hollow return to the oven/fire for a bit longer.
Serve slathered with fresh butter to accompany a meal, or if serving after the main course spread slices with butter and apricot jam or any other jam of choice for a delicious end to a camp meal.
