A couple of weeks back the middle son (9) dug a 1 M test pit out in the back lot which metamorphosised into a fox hole and then into one side we built a mud oven.
We used a Italian cake tin that we'd saved from Christmass to which I've bolted on a simple handle,
We finally got to try it out today. After a weeks rain and then a weeks sun there were a few cracks to fill and while the middle son dealt with them the eldest made up a batch of oat and cranberry bannock.
We pre heated it for about 10 mins and it took 20 for the stuff to bake in a old mess tin, the oven being too short to take a standard bread tin.
It is actually cooked in this pic, just Jnr was a bit enthusiastic with the flor to stop it sticking.
Overall it did work well, the fire drew satisfactory but given a choice i'd stick with one of these
