Cooking and baking are two of my other passions.
I had a craving for fried bannock today for lunch. I learned the recipe from a wonderful elder in Conklin many years ago. She truly was a blessing in my life.
As you can see by the title photo, these are not fried. Damn! Yup, my mind was somewhere else as I mixed up the ingredients.
If you fry the bannock, don’t add any fat. (oil, lard, butter or margarine) As you deep fry it, the bannock picks up as much oil as you need. I wasn’t thinking, (you know, par for the course) and added oil during the mix. No real harm though. I could have simply baked it in the traditional manner, but I decided to cut it into biscuits.
I like these with butter. So now I’ll make a soup, and with these tasty little morsels, we’ll have a nice dinner for a cooler day.
These really are simple and quick. From the start to finish… including the clean up and (yup, I ate a bunch) under an hour.
