Bannock (Oven Baked)
- 4 cups (1 L) all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp. (30 ml) baking powder
- 1 tsp. (5 ml) salt
- 3 cups (750 ml) water
- 2 tbsp. (30 ml) shortening
- 1 cup (250 ml) water
- 1 egg, optional
Mix all dry ingredients together along with the shortening. Gradually add water until mixture becomes doughy. You can have it with an elasticity consistency or hard enough to fold. Pour into a prepared bread pan (9½ in x 13 in) which has been greased with 2 tbsp. (30 ml) vegetable oil.
Cook at 350°F (180°C) for approximately 40 to 45 minutes.
You may want to lather it with margarine after baking to prevent the bread from becoming too hard or brittle. When done, remove from pan and allow to cool before serving with your favourite meal.
