postheadericon Bannock – Easy bread no yeast

What you will need:
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Bowl to mix
Spoon to stir ingredients
Frying pan and stove top if frying and a little oil
Baking pan and oven set at 350F
Counter space to roll the dough

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt (decrease for sodium restricted diets)

2 tablespoons baking powder

1/4 cup butter if baking but omit if pan frying and add oil to pan instead

1 1/2 cups water



1.  Measure flour, salt, and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir to mix. Add butter and water to flour mixture. Stir with fork to make a ball.

2.  Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface, and knead gently about 10 times. Pat into a flat circle 3/4 to 1 inch thick.

3.  Cook in a greased frying pan over medium heat, allowing about 15 minutes for each side. DO NOT ADD BUTTER IF PAN FRYING.  Use two lifters for easy turning.

4.  Bake on a greased baking sheet at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes. *Alternative

These taste great with the reduced salt as the butter/margarine compensates for the flavour.  Try them hot with a nice cup of tea or coffee.  Spread your favourite bread spread to enjoy.  Easy to make when money is tight.
