    I put this on the Bannock thread originally, but here it is broken out (Bannock sounds tastier if you have ingredients, though!!):

    1 c flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    water
    (opt for savory: 1/2 t. salt)

    Mix into a batter and pour into a greased skillet. Fry like a pancake and serve with butter and jam (or use salt and seasonings in it before frying, for savory).

    There is a youtube channel , that recreates what the colonists did with what they had , most of it was very simple , but good . Ash cakes , were as basic as you can get , flour and water , maybe a little salt if they had it . They would get hot coals going then mix flour , water into a thick dough , wrap in a leaf , then toss on top of the coals , or place directly on the coals , bakes very fast , and that was the colonial soldiers bread .

    Didn’t they also call this ‘Hard Tack’? I think they would soak it in coffee so they could eat it because it would break your teeth if you didn’t.

    Bannock was also cooked by wrapping a coil of the thick dough around a stick and baking over the coals.
    Some flatbreads can be cooked on a hot flat stone–piki bread of the Hopi, basically blue corn grits and water.
    Tortillas of Mexico and chapatti of India are very similar–a handful of flour with a dab of salt in the middle, mix with water and flatten out; bake in an oiled skillet or on a stone.

    Remember, whatever you can add to lighten dough will make it more delicious: baking powder, or baking soda plus sour milk, or wild yeast/sourdough. A little salt enhances the savoryness of bread as does the addition of rich whole grains, beans, berries, etc. An egg doesn’t hurt either and will make the loaf/cake more cohesive. It depends on how poor you are, as to the simplicity of your bread. Or if you have any bread at all.
