Fried Bannock Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • water
  • vegetable oil or lard

Directions

  1. Mix half the flour with the remaining dry ingredients.
  2. Add water until the mixture becomes thick, “like a paper mache paste”.
  3. Add more flour until the dough feels like a soft earlobe.
  4. Heat the oil or lard over a medium-high heat until very hot, but not smoking.
  5. Break off small pieces of the dough and flatten each to the size of your palm, about 1/2-inch thick.
  6. Place the pieces in the hot oil, turn after about 3 minutes, or when golden brown.
  7. Place the bannock on a paper towel to soak up the excess grease.
  8. Serve plain or with jam.

New York Cheesecake Pancake (IHOP) Recipe

For those times when you can’t get to the International House of Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons seedless strawberry jam
  • 11/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 11/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups chopped frozen cheesecake
  • Cooking spray
  • Butter, confectioners’ sugar or whipped cream, for topping (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix the strawberries, jam and 2 tablespoons warm water in a bowl; set aside. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. Pulse the flour, buttermilk, egg, vegetable oil, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the cheesecake pieces, keeping them whole.
  3. Coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, pour about 1/4 cup batter into the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbly on top, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is golden brown, about 2 more minutes. Transfer the finished pancakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Serve the pancakes topped with the strawberry sauce; top with butter, confectioners’ sugar or whipped cream, if desired.
