This campfire bannock recipe is easy to make and will make you look like a campfire chef. You can fry it in a pan, bake it in a dutch oven, pop it on top of a stew like a dumpling or follow the traditional method of cooking over the coals on a stick. Mix the dry ingredients and keep it in a sealable bag. Just add the oil and water when you are ready to feast.
2.5 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. sugar
½ tsp. salt
3 tbsp. oil
1 cup water
Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and enough water to form a firm dough that doesn’t stick to the hands. Leave to rest for 30 minutes. Divide into six portions and flatten with the palm of your hand to form discs. Select a long thin stick and clean off the end with a knife. Form the dough around the stick.
Scrape some of the coals out from the fire on to the edge of your fire pit. Hold the stick over the coals, turning frequently until your bannock is brown and cooked through. You can also fry in bacon fat or oil in a pan and sprinkle with sugar as a treat. Make sure you use a high heat oil not olive oil.
You can add spices and herbs or berries if that's your thing.
