Fried Bannock


  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • water
  • vegetable oil or lard (to fry in the pan)
  • 1/4 cup of butter


  • Mix half the flour with the remaining dry ingredients.
  • Add water until the mixture becomes thick, “like a paper mache paste”.
  • Add more flour until the dough feels like a soft earlobe.
  • Heat the oil or lard over a medium-high heat until very hot, but not smoking.
  • Break off small pieces of the dough and flatten each to the size of your palm, about 1/2-inch thick.
  • Place the pieces in the hot oil, turn after about 3 minutes, or when golden brown.
  • Place the bannock on a paper towel to soak up the excess grease.
  • Serve plain or with jam.

That’s how you make bannock!
