It's bread that is fried - as simple as that. You cut a slice and put it in the frying pan until it is browned. The children did have bread in camp - it is mentioned in the salvage from Swallow in 'Swallowdale' as having gone 'soppy'. You need a fairly high frying temperature to fry bread, but no more than you would need for 'cannon balls'. Perhaps they just didn't have time, or they preferred the natural 'raw' taste of baked bread (I do).
