Many people have good child hood memories of their Mom's making bannock. Bannock is quick and easy to make, tastes amazing alone, or you can add your own flare to it.
It's a very basic bread, and you can do anything with it.
2 cups white flour
1 tbsp baking soda/powder (not a mistake 1 tablespoon or at least close to it)
1/2 tsp salt
*1 and 1/4th cup milk
(most recepts call for 1/2 cup milk 1/2 cup water, I prefer my bannock fatty and slightly hard but not burnt, and I prefer my mix to be sticky. If you want it not to be too sticky either 1 cup milk or 1/2 milk 1/2 water)
Mix the ingredients in a bowl, form into english muffin sized pieces and cook it in a frying pan with butter or vegetable oil on medium, right in the middle, or about half of that.
I prefer it a bit crunchy, my method is to have high heat and crisp the outsides, and then lower the temperature dramatically and slow cook the inside. If you do it this way, you don't have to wait until its done all the way as it is still heating when you take it off.
Another popular cooking way is to deep fry the bannock in oil. If you haven't figured it out yet, bannock is very basic, and many people like to make it fairly fatty (like me).
Other things you can do:
cinnamon and raisin (best cooked slow and made fluffy)
wrap it around hot dogs and cook
