Bannock refers originally to a Scottish flatbread which is made usually of oatmeal and lard, baked on a "girdle," or iron plate, suspended over an open fire. The name was brought to Northern Canada by early explorers and traders of Scottish origin, so it has become the name of the common flat soda bread made in Northern Canada. Berries or bits of fish or game may be cooked into the bread.
