Cook your dough-stuffs on a frying pan, hot rock, griddle, wherever, until they are a nice golden-brown on each side.

Also, the dough is really good raw.

Cut into goodly sized pieces and enjoy with milk and jam... or whatever else you have lying around.
(Really good with natural maple syrup)

We make a version my husband learned in canada that is simply flour and water mixed with whatever dried fruit or nuts you want.

I am definitely learning a lot on this page, all these wonderful dishes from different (I am British) parts of the world. I think I am hooked!!
BANNOCK! This brings back the memories from camp... Pizza bannock sammiches, made with week old cheese, a purplish meat appropriatly called "Chams", and minnows, all made in a used sardine can. I miss camp.
