I decided to have a crack at making some Bannock Bread at home tonight. It seems the time honoured thing to do when camping, so rather then risking a complete and total failure in a camp site (or wild camping) I figured I’d give it a go at home first.
I started with THIS recipe, with a couple of modifications. Firstly I cut everything half. The thought of destroying that much raw ingredients didn’t sit well with me, plus it might well have required a super heavy duty rubbish bin liner to dispose of it, let alone whatever the damage to the environment it would do haha 🙂
So, my mixture went like this:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 pinches salt
- water, at room temperature
Plus I added some raisins to add to the sweetness and flavour. The kids loved them, and I thought they were pretty good too. Didn’t even bother with adding butter or anything to them, they were soft and moist enough without the butter.
looks good might give it a try!
Yeah, there are pretty much endless options to add to it. In a magazine I bought (which made me think to finally try it), the author added sliced spring onions rather then fruit.. but I figured the kids would like the fruit more. I tried to find a small bag of mixed fruit at the Tesco today but couldn’t seem to locate them so went with raisins instead.
Looks yummy – now add some sliced almonds and you have a real treat 🙂
