Classic Bannock Bread
Author: Bernard
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp dry milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt

You will also need:

A fire safe pan (no plastic or dipped handles) and vegetable oil.


Pack the dry ingredients in a quart freezer or sandwich bag.

Add enough water to make a soft dough to the dry ingredients in the bag.

Mold rapidly with handling a little as possible into a cake, about 1 inch thick. Lay it in a well oiled pan.

Hold over fire until a crust forms on bottom, then turn (flip the dough) over.

Prop the pan at a angle in front of the fire exposing the top to the heat, cook until brown, about 15 minutes.

Another version was to smear olive oil on one side, put in pan about 5 minutes, smear oil on the top and turn it over, and cook 10-15 minutes. This can be done over a stove instead of a fire.

The results taste like a cross of a biscuit, and a pancake. Tastes great with honey drizzled over.
