Came out great. I cut the ingredients in half and mixed all but the water in a zip lock bag. Just add 1/2 cup water and knead in the bag then take out and finish the kneading then spread. I cooked it on a MSR SimmerLite stove and an 8" GSI Hard Anodized pan (no oil required). Fast and easy and will be great for dipping in the camp chili!

These were just okay, kind of bland. I think the author meant to say that this is an ADAPTED recipe, not an "ADOPTED" recipe. LOL!

Couldn't be a much simpler way to get some fresh bread on the table fast. I made it plain this time, but will try it again sometime with some additions, maybe fruit, or possibly very little sugar and then some fresh herbs. Very interesting.

This was so awful I took one bite and had to throw the rest out. It tasted like chemicals. I was so disappointed because I was hungry and wasted a cup of flour, and there was no time to make another. I browsed other internet sites and found out that other bannock recipes call for only 1 teaspoon of baking powder and the sugar is optional. I enjoyed this recipe when I was a kid but did not remember the ingredients. I'm looking forward to trying this again when I have the time, using much less baking powder and possibly omitting the sugar. Hoping for better results next time.

This was a very fast treat. I only made half the recipe. I tried the ziploc idea but I didn't do so good with that. It seemed half cup water was too much. I spread mine with apple butter (being a poor indian, I didn't have any raisins) :D.

Delicious, brought back memories of my grandma's kitchen, we ate them with dark Steen's syrup back then....pure comfort food for me. This is also a go to breakfast for me, when I haven't been to the grocery store in a while and the kids need something filling. I made them with raisins added in, served with a lil butter and syrup...Yum!

I have made Bannock Bread several ways. My favorite is half wheat flour and half rolled oats. Also, it is a great dessert if you add raisins and chopped pecans then roll them in cinnamon sugar while they are still hot. I have even made them with sliced strawberries. These are delicious no matter how they are made.
