Garlic Bannock

I'm told that this bannock is one of the best I've ever made, either my normal bannocks are junk or this really is a good one, certainly i liked it.

The recipe, i have to make clear that a one cup measure relates to a UK Coffee mug sized cup.

3 cups self raising flour
1 cup milk powder
1 teaspoon of sea salt
Garlic granules or fresh garlic to taste, 

I suppose i used three teaspoons  of garlic granules in the above mix, it all depends on your taste, some people like a lot of garlic others just a hint, trial and error here I'm afraid until you find what is right for you.

Mix it all up into a stiff dough and place it into a frying pan with a small amount of olive oil in the pan, cook until golden, turn and repeat the process, it's done when it sounds hollow when you tap it with your fingers, just like cooking bread, as with all bannocks they should never be cut, so tear off a piece from the bannock and enjoy, if i had thought about it i would have decreased the amount of garlic granules and added some finely chopped Garlic Mustard instead, hey makes for a grand excuse to make another one later in the week.


  1. that it was, collected some Garlic Mustard this evening so i could try the bannock with it in.

    Let you know how it comes out.
