This recipe is thanks to my very lovely Scottish friend Lisa-Marie. She had been tweeting about Bannock and being curious I asked her to tell me more. Before that tweet I had never heard of such a thing but being such a brilliant friend I had an email with an explanation and recipe in my inbox within 10 minutes.
Now that’s commitment to the Scottish baked products.
Bannock is essentially a giant scone. The texture is pretty much the same. Except before you bake it you assign some grooves to it and then you cut it all up to eat with your spreads of choice.
Just like a scone, Bannock is rather versatile. You can serve it up with butter, jam and cream like they do down in Devon and Cornwall.
Or you can got savoury and add cubes of cheddar and apple to the mixture before baking.
The great thing about Bannock is it is soooooooooo simple to make and bakes super quick. If you need a baking quickie this weekend then make this.
