I've gotta say I'm with you on this. I like simple bannocks and have tried loads of methods including simple and elaborate. My favorite is still a few handfulls of flour, a two fingered pinch of baking powder and a pinch salt. If I want savoury I add whatever I fancy, for sweet I add sliced almond, cinnamon and brown sugar and dried fruit.i have been useing a very very basic mix which is just the right amount for 1 meal on its own or for 2 meals with other bits.......
flour (plain) 10 heaped table spoons
bakeing powder 2 rounded table spoons
add salt or sugar or both, nuts, seeds, or fruit as you like, just put it all into a food bag and give it a good mix, tie the top up with ALL the air removed, when needed just add small amounts of water to the bag and squeez to make a paste, just MAKE SURE you dont add to much water or it will turn into a batter mix.........
i cook mine in a non stick pan, or on my bread stove after ive done the brew..........

Warning, ancient thread revival!I tend to take mine as a ready-mix.
1 handful of self-raising flour
1 teaspoon of brown sugar
pinch of mixed spice
1 egg (or a splash of milk)
plus whatever you want for flavouring - nuts and dried fruit being favourite.
