  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

I did not care for this recipe.

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.

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.

Great Bannock recipe.....just like Grandma used to make (according to hubby) This was my first time ever trying it not my family tradition but is one of his an he said this is a good recipe for it....Have made it several times always turns out perfect **Make sure you poke LOTS of holes so it doesn't rise while it's cooking **

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.

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.

To anyone thinking of using olive oil instead of vegetable oil, DON'T DO IT! My bannock has an over powering olivey taste :( Good recipe but I needed to add A LOT more flour than called for.
