Métis Bannock Recipe

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

Equipment required

Mixing bowl

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!
