  • 3 cups of flour
  • 2 tbsp of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 1 to 1 and 1/2 cups of water


  • Stir dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Add melted butter and 1 cup of the water and use a fork to mix all ingredients. Add more water as needed.
  • Form a ball with the dough (do not over work, kneading about 10 times)

It's up to you how you would like to cook the bannock:

  • You can roll the dough out until it's about 1 inch thick and bake on a parchment lined sheet for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • You can also cook it in a heavy bottomed skillet with a little bit of oil. Form a small amount of dough into a thin round pancake shape, and place in the hot skillet. Fry until golden brown, flip and repeat on other side.
  • You can also deep fry it until golden brown.
