Bannock is also known as frybread or Indian bread thoughout the North American native Cuisine.

It was used by natives and early explorers to feed themselves on their route because it was easy

to make and ingredients were easily found or traded. All you need is flour, baking powder and

water, which are combined then kneaded with wild fruit or spices, then cooked in an oven or on a stick.

Bannock is ideal for camping, always fresh, simple to make and cooked over a campfire.
