This was so easy and nice when there's nothing else for breakfast. It's like a pancake-english muffin hybrid. I tried it as written and it was great (my 3 year old loved it too), and I tried it with less sugar, served to dip in stew - also tasty! I think different additions would be really nice - perfect when you need bread in a hurry!

This was delicious! I made 1/4 of the recipe for just myself, using equal parts whole wheat and all-purpose flours. I added stevia instead of sugar and fried it with butter. This made 1 dense, chewy patty that looked like a pancake. I remember enjoying these at camp and I still like them now. I prefer a thick patty, so next time I'll form a thicker one that isn't as wide. Overall it was an excellent breakfast and I'll definitely be making this again, thanks!

Just like I remembered it! I hadn't had this since I was a little girl at Girl Guide camp, it was lovely with Jam !

This was pretty good. I was hoping it would be a little more like my mom's. I think I made my "pattys" a bit too thick as well. I used about 2 cups of water for a double recipe and that seemed to work pretty good. I also used sea salt, but would opt for regular table salt next time. I ate mine with cheeze whiz - yum!

This is a hard one for me to rate as I'd never heard of Banock before so not sure how it's supposed to turn out. It certainly went together easy - I followed the directions exactly. We felt it was a cross between a biscuit and an english muffin. It felt heavy to me - but maybe that is as it should be or maybe I was heavy handed in mixing it. However; heavyness aside - the taste was good and we had fun trying something totally new to our regular biscuits. Thanks so much for posting.

Me, my wife, and all the friends I made this for are in love with the recipe. Thanks for sharing something so delicious. I ended up using coarse sea salt and found it added a wonderful amount of saltiness. I also found that just less than a cup of water seemed to work well. I think I just found my new favorite snack!!

Very good. Like an english muffin without the nooks and crannies. Was good with butter and cinnamon sugar. Very filling.

I made this savoury using just a tsp of sugar, adding a tsp of salt and adding some thyme and pepper.

has anyone tried making this wrapped in foil (perhaps greased) and putting directly in a campfire? i was thinking of making a little wicker man for a lughnasad ritual and this would be perfect to put in the straw man's belly to be transformed into food once the figure has burnt. symbolizes the body of the green man (the living grain) sacrificing himself that we might eat

Hi... Make it healthy and yummy by using stevia instead of sugar, cinnamon and raisins or blueberries are great and instead of baking in a pan combine dry ingredients in a baggy and whip them out at your next campfire...add the water to make a stiff dough, divide into portions and roll between your hands to make a long sausage shape wrap around green sticks and bake over the fire ...a great alternative to smores and wieners, kid friendly and delicious...
