Bannock on a Stick
By: Josh Day & Zach St.Amour
- Makes 5-6 large stick-bannocks
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 1/4 cups water
Mix all of the ingredients together. Add approximately 1 cup of water first and slowly add the remainder until it is just firm enough to form on a stick. The bannock batter can be less firm if cooking in a frying pan.
Stick Method – Spoon up a mid-sized handful of batter. Use lots of flour to keep from sticking to hands while patting it flat and shaping it onto stick. Make sure the edges are well incorporated into each other, or they will separate while baking. Cook 7-10 min over coals until golden brown. Rotate continually to encourage even baking and prevent burning.
What to Improve Upon
I thought that this recipe went really well, I think this because it was really easy to do, tasted great, and it took very little time from mixing the ingredients to eating the finished bannock. Next time, I would bring more topping for it such as different jams and something a bit more sugary just to try them out and see how it tastes.
