Ingredients: 4 cups flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 4 tablespoons oil 1 1/2 cup water Optional: brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins, honey, ... Instructions: Mix ingredients and add water until you have a doughy consistency - don't just dump all the water in. Knead approximately 10 minutes. Add sugar, honey, or raisins if you want it sweeter. Grease and heat a frying pan. Form and press the dough into cakes. Lay the bannock in the frying pan. As the bannock cooks, move the cakes around so they don't stick. When the bottom crust has formed and is browned, flip the cakes over. Cooking takes about 12 minutes. Sprinkle with honey or brown sugar and eat. You can mix all the dry ingredients into one bag at home. Instead of cooking in a frying pan, you form a foot long roll of dough about an inch in diameter and wrap it around a stick. Cook this over an open fire.
A few things we added in:
- 2 cups of bread flour to replace 2 cups of white flour to give the bread more texture
- 4 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 and 1/3 cups raisins
We think that the final product turned out great especially with the add ins, we would highly recommend this recipe. For best results spread the dough on a long stick only about 1/2 an inch thick, if it is too wide it will take much longer to cook. This would also taste great with a bit of maple syrup drizzled on top.
