I have always had a love hate relationship with cornbread. When I was a young child, I had campfire cornbread that was so dry and unflavorful that I avoided it for years. Fast forward to college. I went home with

As my wife will verify, I do a lot of things in the kitchen, but baking is not normally one of them. Well yesterday, I felt like baking some fresh bread so I decided to make some bannock. Learning how to make bannock has been on my list of things to learn for a while.
Bannock seems to have originated in Scotland, but it became very popular in the wilds of Canada and the American West. It is easy to make and does not even require a pan to cook it. Kids would enjoy learning how to make Bannock bread, as it can be cooked directly on the hot coals.
I cheated a bit and made mine in the kitchen on the stove. It is an easy way to have hot fresh bread in under thirty minutes. You’ll need the following ingredients.
- 2 cups of flour (white or wheat) I used one of each.
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder, I used one without aluminum in it.
- 1-2 teaspoons of sugar
- 2 pinches of salt
- Enough water to mix into stiff dough.
Throw the ingredients into a bowl and mix; you want the dough stiff enough to stick together. The dough was formed into a large patty between 1 and 2 inches thick. I then threw it in a cast iron frying pan that I had heated some oil in. The dough cooked on one side until I could flip it like a pancake. The backside was then cooked until I could stick a fork in it and it came out clean. The bread was hot, fresh and delicious.
The bannock may have a few burned spots on the exterior by the time it is cooked, but it will be good on the interior. Now the same recipe can be used outdoors without a pan. Just lay your bread patty directly on the hot coals. When the bottom is done, flip it. When the bread is finished brush the ashes off and enjoy.
You can make variations of this bread by adding raisins or other dried fruits. Bannock bread cooks fast and requires less fuel than other forms. The pioneers knew how to cook Bannock bread and now you do, too! Enjoy!

This is the absolute BEST (and most simple) pumpkin bread recipe that I have ever made. The secret – knowing how to keep the moisture in the bread and not allowing it to evaporate during and after the cooking process. There is nothing worse than anticipating taking a bite of freshly baked pumpkin bread and sinking your teeth into nothing but a dry and crumbly mess. You will not find that with this recipe. In fact, just the opposite. It has stood the test of time as it has been passed down through many generations and exceeds all expectations as compared to every other recipe that I have tried. The secret to keeping the bread moist is something you will find very familiar if you ever have grilled meat. After removing the meat from the heat, one of the most important things that you do (or should do) is to allow it to rest under tented foil (or something similar). So following the same basic philosophy, we have found the secret to having that moist and delicious taste that you desire in your pumpkin bread. After the bread comes out of oven, let it rest briefly before removing it from […]
