|2||tablespoons baking powder|
|6||tablespoons vegetable oil|
In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Make a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the water and vegetable oil. Mix well until the dough is formed. Knead until the dough is soft and only slightly sticky. Let sit for about 10 minutes, then roll the dough onto a lightly floured cookie sheet. Pierce the surface of the dough with a fork in several places. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into squares and serve.
Baked-style bannock can also be cooked by wrapping dough around a stick and roasting over a fire. To make fried bannock, omit the oil from the dough and fry pieces in oil until golden brown.
