Quick Banana Bread - Bannock Practice

Following up on my rice and bacon from last week, I decided to practice a bit of baking.

This is a recipe that wouldn't exactly work when camping, but it is close enough to a bannock recipe. Spring is fond of bananas, but has been nibbling on plums and peaches this past week. As a result, the bananas in the kitchen were beginning to get a bit ripe.

So using highly unorthodox baking and measuring procedures, I grabbed 3 handfuls of flour, 3 eggs, 3 spoonfuls of margarine, 1 pinch of salt, a larger pinch of baking powder, and 3 palmfuls of sugar.

I set the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and mixed all of my ingredients in a bowl. Then I chucked it all into a greased and floured bread pan. After about 45 minutes or so (I wasn't paying attention), I checked on the loaf of banana bread. I stuck a toothpick into it and it came out clean. The banana bread was very tasty.

My next step is to make bannock in the oven. Bannock is a quick bread a bit like this banana loaf.

But it isn't generally a sweet bread. My recipe will be as follows:
  • 3 handfuls of flour
  • 1 handful of milk powder
  • 1/2 a handful of sugar
  • 1 big pinch of baking powder
  • 1 small pinch of salt
  • 1/2 a handful of dehydrated egg powder
  • 1/2 a handful of raisins
Then some water to moisten it all and then chuck it in a pan and bake it for a while.

To cook it outside, I'd put it in a pan, tilt it up beside a fire and leave it there for a while to bake. Trouble is, I don't know where to get dehydrated egg powder. Anyone?
