Old Fashioned Bannock Cakes

Old Fashioned Bannock Cakes

5 cups flour (all purpose)
5 tsp baking powder
1 Tbs salt
1/2-3/4 cup lard (do not substitute)

Mix all dry ingredients together. Cut in lard. Add enough water that the dough holds together well, but not so much that the dough becomes sticky (if this happens add more flour).  Once the dough is thoroughly mixed place on a greased baking sheet and pat down to about 1 inch in thickness and cut to rounds. Bake at about 400-450F until the Bannock appears to be slightly brown.
This recipe is also suitable for deep frying, frying, and pan cooking over a campfire.
