Simple to make, four basic ingredients, one bowl to wash. This kids’ favorite is tasty, nutritious and fun to cook on a stick over the campfire. It can also be cooked in a skillet. Bannock can be a meal in itself.
- 2 – 3 cups flour
- 1 – 2 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt (optional)
- 2 – 3 Tbsp oil, butter or lard
- 2/3 cup warm water
Directions: Put everything but the water in a bowl and mix with your fingers until crumbly. Slowly add water and mix until dough feels soft. It may seem that you don’t have enough water, but keep working the dough till it holds together. Don’t add more water!
Knead 5 minutes stretch with hands and cut into 4 cook in a pan of iron.
Another fun way to cook
Take a small handful and wrap around the end of a green stick, like a marshmallow roast. Knead it so it stays together. Cook over coals for about 10 – 12 minutes, rotating to cook evenly. Eat as is, or add a bit of jam or honey.
