    Default "Poorman's Cake" : Does anyone have a recipe for this?

    I saw the thread for Poorman's bread which I'm going to try! It reminded me that my hubby had poorman's cake when he was little and loved it. I've been on the lookout over the years to find it and make it for him. If anyone has a recipe for it would you please post it? Thanks so much!

    I have had indian fry bread - LOVE IT!

    By the description of this poor man's bread, it sounds a bit different, especially in texture and toppings.

    Indian fry bread is fried (well, mine is) so it is kind of thick. I top it with hamburger, pinto beans, cheese, onions, and sour cream - YUMMY! (note to self, add this to menu).

    Indian fry bread is flour and water and yeast. Let it rise. Make pancake size flat pieces (put loose flour on counter and flatten it out - not sure if that technique has a name -lol). Put some oil in a skillet and fry it til nice golden brown. Put toppings on. Yumm-O!

    Just enough to make it a batter consistency.

    Thumbs up Bannock

    In my searches for a stove top bread that our neighbor can make on her propane stove I stumbled on recipes for bannock.

    I have yet to make one unflavored because I've been in the mood for sweet bread. To the basic recipe I added 1 Tablespoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a dash of mace. Then enough water for the dough to resemble a drop biscuit style dough.

    I found my non-stick pan works better with a little vegetable oil spray than my cast iron did with 1 tsp of oil. MEDIUM HEAT is a must so the bottom doesn't over brown.

    I spooned half the dough into the pan then used wet fingers to spread it out into a disc shape for more even cooking. I gave the pan a shake occasionally so it wouldn't stick and flipped it when the top was starting to look dry. (I used a saucer to slide it out of the pan then gently flipped it back into the pan.)

    It is very difficult NOT to eat with butter or jam. I'll be trying some variations with fruit or savory herbs at some time in the very near future. The 1 cup of flour recipe made 2 bannocks 5 inches in diameter and 1-1.5 inches thick.

    pics: a finished bannock, before the first flip, after the first flip.
