campfire bannock recipe

on a recent camping trip, we made bannock. it’s a very basic bread dough which we wrapped around sticks and cooked over the fire. the nice thing about it is that it can be prepped ahead of time, and then once you’re at camp, you just add water to make the dough.

in a large zip top bag, add:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

seal the bag and massage this mixture from the outside of the bag until it is crumbly. keep refrigerated or in a cooler/on ice until you’re ready to use it.

to make the bannock, just add water to the bag of ingredients. about 1 to 2 cups, just enough to make a sticky dough consistency that you can work with your hands.

yup, it’s sticky and messy. the fun part is taking off small chunks and kneading the dough in your hands. you can flatten it out to whatever shape desired. a long strip of it can be twisted around a stick…

or a flat piece can be wrapped around a hotdog to be roasted over the fire (for that, i’d recommend cooking the hotdog first, then wrapping it with the dough. i found that the bannock cooked quicker than the hotdogs).

we’ll be trying this one again, the kids thought it was fun and honestly… it was delicious. but then, everything tastes better when made over a fire, don’t you find? have you ever made bannock? if you go camping, what are your favourite things to make?
