This version is very easy to make, all you need is a couple of ingredients and a standard sized cast-iron pot with a lid. While you are waiting for the coals to form you can start by mixing all the ingredients together.
500 g self-rising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
20-30 ml sugar
340 ml beer
Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the egg and beer and mix thoroughly. Bake for one hour in the cast iron pot, packing warm coals around the pot and some onto the lid.
Serve warm with a thick layer of butter and some apricot jam.
You can also add sundried tomatoes, olives or biltong to the mix before putting the pot onto the coals.
