When I was a little girl, we used to make bannock over the fire. I loved it. My Mom hated it. Which made me love it even more!

The directions were easy to follow and the bread tastes wonderful (after I cut off the burnt crust). I don't know if it's the high altitude or my oven, but even at 325 degrees, I only cooked the bread for about 50 minutes before it started to burn. Deffinately going to try this again at about 300 degrees. I also used golden raisens instead of the regular.
