The Dutch Pot really shows off when you use it to bake. Almost anything that you bake at home can be cooked in a Dutch Pot. To bake in a Dutch Pot over coals, you put some coals under the oven and more coals on the top. This will allow the heat to be distributed above and below the oven and provide more even heat to whatever you are baking.Adjust the amount of heat by changing the amount of coals on the top and bottom. It is usually necessary to coat the pot with oil before backing. However, some recipes especially bread call for a coating of flour instead.
