    I'm going to expect a thousand replies and each one different but at the meet next weekend I'm hoping to take some bits to make bannocks possibly on sticks. I wondering if anyone has a recipe for a good bannock. I've seen a few around but they need milk powder and the only type I can seem to find is babies powdered milk.

    So if you wouldn't mind could you post up your secret recipe's

    Bannock Mix
    camping recipe

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Category: Breads Rating: 6.5
    Backpacking: No Effort: easy Serves: any Prep time: 1-30m

    Ingredients:
    •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!

    I bought some from asda , made by Marvel we use it for bread in the bread maker.

    I think it was beside the flour in the home baking section.

    i have been useing a very very basic mix which is just the right amount for 1 meal on its own or for 2 meals with other bits.......

    really easy:-

    flour (plain) 10 heaped table spoons
    bakeing powder 2 rounded table spoons

    add salt or sugar or both, nuts, seeds, or fruit as you like, just put it all into a food bag and give it a good mix, tie the top up with ALL the air removed, when needed just add small amounts of water to the bag and squeez to make a paste, just MAKE SURE you dont add to much water or it will turn into a batter mix.........

    i cook mine in a non stick pan, or on my bread stove after ive done the brew..........

    have a look at this:- http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=64584&highlight=brew+and+bread+stove

    regards.

    One I've used as well. At the last Cambridgeshire meet I took a packet of value mixed nuts and raisins. They were well hammered (literally) and mixed in. Tasted "perfick" as they say ;):)

    I tend to take mine as a ready-mix.
    It is:
    1 handful of self-raising flour
    1 teaspoon of brown sugar
    pinch of mixed spice
    1 egg (or a splash of milk)
    plus whatever you want for flavouring - nuts and dried fruit being favourite.

    Bannock or Damper mixture is: 2 parts self raising flour and 1 part powdered milk. Mix with a little bit of water. (You can buy powdered milk at all the supermarkets it's usually with the longlife milk products, coffee whiteners etc. Tesco, morrisons etc do value packs.) Add into your dough whatever you want. On sticks it's good with chocolate chips mixed in (or raisins) kids love this. I like mix with added grated cheese and onion and seasoning and cooked with a bit of oil in a hot frying pan as a loaf. Good with home made soup. young nettle leaves (chopped) and wild garlic. Nuts and raisins. You can try anything really.
    Hope this helps.
