Table of Contents



1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup water (to pasty consistency)
margarine (for frying)

Non-traditional options:
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp brown sugar
½ cup raisins
1 tsp garlic
shredded cheese

Combine dry ingredients and add water. Stir. It should have a thick, pasty consistency. Use an extra tablespoon of water if the consistency isn't right. Melt margarine or butter in frying pan, Spoon batter into medium hot pan. Fry until golden on both sides. Butter or serve with hot brown sugar sauce.

Flummies are sometimes called 'Trapper's Bread" as it was a staple used by Labrador trappers as they tended their trap lines. It is similar to bannock. I prepare flummie mix (dry ingredients only) in bulk making sure there's a couple of cups of the mix in my emergency kit when hiking or travelling.

This is a great substitute for bagels. You can add whatever you like to Flummies. I usually add the cinnamon, sugar and raisins for morning meals and garlic and cheese as a substitute for garlic bread.
