My Scotish ancestors my curse me for this but, in my experience, bannock, hardtack, fry bread, quick bread, ring bread, stick bread.... are all pretty similar, and their differences seem to come down to the recipe and cooking methods used. [/quote]

Consider yourself cursed laugh

One of the problems I have on American based forums is the strange names you have for food and the confusing combinations, can someone please explain why you would cover a biscuit in gravy ??????

Around here

Bannocks are usually made from Oatmeal, a pinch of salt, egg and milk or water whisked till itís similar to a pancake mixture, then fried.

Pan bread is flour (sometimes with oats) pinch of salt, baking soda and a little water to make a dough then cooked in a dry pan.
