In honour of National Indigenous Peoples Day, I will share with you my not-so-secret bannock recipe. It is very simple and quite quick to make! You can make it in an oven or over the campfire.
Prep: 10 minutes
Bake: 10 minutes
Yield: 12 buns
2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
1/2 cup measuring cup
1 tbsp measuring spoon
1 tsp measuring spoon
Oven sheet pan (or a stick and a campfire)
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F or start a campfire.
2. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
3. Cut in butter with your fingers.
You want the butter to blend in completely with the flour mix.
4. Slowly add the water and kneed with your hands.
The batter should become slightly sticky.
There is enough water when it wants to stay in a large ball and all the dry mix is gone.
5. Grab a handful and mold into little buns and place on oven sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until light brown.
6. Or wrap a handful around a willow or hot dog stick and roast over the campfire.
Enjoy on its own or with butter or jam!
