Biscuits / Bannock

Makes about 6-8 biscuits


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1tbs butter
  • 1/2 cup milk


Combine the dry ingredients at home, all together, and store in a zip lock bag or (my favorite) a lock and lock container-so you don’t have any spills during the drive or hike.

When you make the dough just add the milk and butter and mix well. To form dough, make sure your hands are dry. Then make an OK sign with your fingers (connecting the thumb and forefinger in a circle), push the dough through the round opening, creating a ball a little smaller than a baseball. Squeeze the fingers closed to cut off the dough. Continue until all dough is formed into balls. Put onto a greased pan and put in the oven or, if you’re cooking on the fire, put the dough balls onto a skillet and fry for a couple minutes each side until they start to lightly brown. Eat with a bit of butter, a sprinkle of cinnamon or some maple syrup.
