Step 1: Mix Ingredients
The ingredients are:
2 cups of flour
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons of baking powder
Mix them together. If you're going to take it camping or use it sometime in the future or cook it over a campfire, put all the ingredients in a Ziplock bag. Otherwise use a bowl.
Step 2: Add Water
Add water until it is the consistency of soft Play doh.
Step 3: Fry and Serve
If you're using a frying pan, spread it out like a pancake and cook it until the inside is done. It's pretty tasteless by itself so spread some jam or honey on it to add flavour.
Step 4: Cook on a Stick
We take the dry ingredients along camping because it keeps a long, long time and you just have to add water. Cooking it over a campfire takes a long time but we really enjoy it.
Find a stick that is about the width of a ruler and scrape the bark of off the last 12 inches (30 cm). Add water to your bannock mix. Grab a handful of the dough and, starting at the top, turn the stick and move your hand down so that it forms a relatively even spiral layer of dough on the stick. Cook until the inside is done.
