Makes: 8 to 12 bannocks
- Vegetable oil
- 4 cups unbleached flour
- 3 tbsp baking powder
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 to 3 cups cold water as needed
Heat enough vegetable oil to reach 1/4-inch depth in a frying pan over medium heat.
Sift together dry ingredients. Stir in enough water to form sticky dough.
Ladle a scant cup of bannock dough into the hot oil in round circles about 4 inches wide. Fry patties until golden brown on each side and puffed up, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Remove to a rack and repeat with remaining dough.
