Bannock Add to ...

Adjust the heat when cooking the bannock so they cook evenly all the way through (you may have to lower it slightly). You can adjust the size as needed.

  • Preparation time: 5 minutes
  • Ready time: 30 minutes
  • Servings: 8 to 12 bannocks


Vegetable oil

4 cups unbleached flour

3 tbsp baking powder

4 tbsp sugar

2 tsp salt

2 to 3 cups cold water as needed


Heat enough vegetable oil to reach 1/4-inch depth in a frying pan over medium heat.

Sift together dry ingredients. Stir in enough water to form sticky dough.

Ladle a scant cup of bannock dough into the hot oil in round circles about 4 inches wide. Fry patties until golden brown on each side and puffed up, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Remove to a rack and repeat with remaining dough.
