Cheesy bannock

Prep 10 min
Total 50 min
Makes 10 Servings



1 tbsp
unsalted butter, melted
4 cups
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
1/2 cup
unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups
1 cup
grated sharp cheddar


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Brush an ovenproof skillet (cast iron is best) with
    1 tbsp melted butter.
  • Stir flour with baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir butter with water in a small bowl, then stir into flour mixture until it comes together. Dough will be a little sticky. Transfer into the prepared skillet. Spread dough to edges and pat down. Sprinkle with cheddar and pat gently so cheese sticks to dough.
  • Bake in centre of oven until golden and a cake tester inserted into the centre comes out clean, 35 to 40 min. Keep bannock in skillet. Cut into wedges.

  1. Super fast and easy recipe…and even tastier! I would make this again in a heartbeat!!


  2. I made this bannock receipe and was not happy with it ! A week later I made it again , only this time I used 1.5 cup. milk instead of the 1.5 cup water. I dumped it out on my marble and mixed the flour in better this time , then put it in a 10 inch skillet and, topped it off with Kraft Tex Mex cheese . The end result was absolutely wonderful and much more tasteful as well as a better texture.


  3. Thank you both for your positive feedback. And, great work on the substitution.
