Bannock Mix
camping recipe
Category: Breads   Rating: 6.5
Backpacking: No Effort: easy Serves: any Prep time: 1-30m
  • 6 cups Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Baking Powder
  • 1 cup (1/2 lb.) Shortening
How to Prepare:
Combine all dry ingredients well & cut in shortening. Seal tightly in an ice-cream bucket.
....BREAD: Add a handful of sugar to some of the mix. Add enough water to make a soft dough, handling as little as possible. Pat into a 1" thickness the size of a dinner plate. Place in a preheated & greased skillet. Brown one side well, turn & prop skillet at angle so heat reaches both sides. Takes about 15-20min. to cook.
....SCONES: Same as bread, but also add a handful of raisins. Cut in wedges & cook as in bread. (Wild berries are wonderful in these!)
....PANCAKES: Add two beaten eggs, sugar& enough dry or fresh milk to make a thin batter.
....BISCUITS: Add about 1/2-2/3 cup of milk to 2 cups of mix. Add a bit of sugar for sweet biscuits. Mould quickly into a 1" thick sheet & cut in rounds with an empty tin can. Place on a greased skillet with a space between each. Place a foil tent over skillet to trap and circulate the heat.
....DUMPLINGS: Add 2 teaspoons baking powder to 2 cups of mix. Add enough water to make a soft dough.
....DOUGHNUTS: Add a beaten egg, a handful of sugar,nutmeg and enough milk to the basic mix to make a stiff dough. Break off small pieces & drop in oil. Once golden brown, drain on paper towelling and eat as is or roll in icing sugar, or granulated sugar and cinnamon mixture.
....BANNOCK CUPS: Make a stiff dough about the size of a tennis ball with basic mix. Press over the end of a clean-cut alder stick, about the thickness of your wrist. Cook it slowly over the coals, when done remove & fill with almost anything. For example..Saute mushrooms,onions,peppers & ground beef with your favorite seasonings. Pour into a bannock cup & serve as a main dish with a bit of gravy over all.
....BANNOCK TWIST: Press stiff dough into a thin sheet. Cut into narrow strips about as wide as your finger. Spiral around a clean-cut alder stick & roast over coals turning constantly! When done eat with peanut butter or jam. KIDS LOVE COOKING THESE ALMOST AS MUCH AS EATING THEM!
