  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, water and oil. Knead on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes. Let it rest for a minute, then spread out onto a cookie sheet to 1 inch thickness. Poke holes in the dough using a fork.

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bottom is golden when you lift up the bread to take a peek.

We were planning a family tenting trip and my husband wanted to show the kids how to cook bannock over the fire as he used to do as a kid. This was something new to me as well so I had to look up this recipe. It turned out great!! You make the dough and wrap it around a stick then roast it slowly over the fire and serve it hot with butter and jam! Delicious!! Thanks so much for the recipe. My husband and I are going on a mountain back packing trip next weekend and I will definately bring the ingredients with me even if I have to leave something else behind to fit it in!! We will definately make this a family tradition. Read More

I made this recipe and it was delicious! However I would suggest making the Bannock a lot thinner than one inch or the Bannock comes out doughy. Read More

Great stuff, I substituted lard for oil (sue me), and baked them in a cast iron skillet on the stove. I'm planning on making a mix to take camping so all I have to do is add water and cook. They are great with lard, and cook well on a stove, 1/2 inch thick, three or four minutes on each side. Read More

I bake with the metric system and wonder if there might be an error in translation - the amount of flour is no where near enough... Wowever when knowing that its easy to add extra get a few extra buns (which is no loss!) and enjoy this wonderful bread!!! Lovely! Read More

I really liked the consistency of this once it was cooked. One of the problems I had was the salt I added much to little of a pinch. In the future I would add a few "pinches" of salt. I will make it in the future but with a few changes. Read More

i just made this a few minutes ago because i was craving bread and wanted a recipe that didn't use yeast/eggs/dairy. it's a very basic recipe that you can obviously doctor up anyway you'd like. i drizzled honey over the bread- and it tastes so yummy! it's very moist and chewy. Read More

The same as I used to make when I was little. I did substitute lard through as thats what I used in the recipe I no longer have. My kids wanted a wiener roast and I was out of hot dog buns. I mixed up this dough and we wrapped wieners in it and roasted them over the fire. Just like when I was a kid! Also delish with currants! Thanks for replaceing my long lost recipe!!! Read More
