Bannocks for the Feast of St. Andrew

November 30, 2007 @ 12:14 am | Filed under:

I was reading a lovely post about St. Andrew by Elena at My Domestic Church and, to my surprise, stumbled upon my own name. Elena mentions that St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, and adds:

Our family has been reading Melissa Wiley’s Martha
Books for almost nine months now and these stories are set in Scotland.
Young Martha, the laird’s daughter, is always helping in the kitchen
with baking bannocks, or eating bannocks, so the kids and I have
decided to actually make bannocks tomorrow in celebration of the feast
day. I’ll post pictures and let you know if they turn out okay!

I look forward to seeing those pictures!

I posted a recipe for bannocks here a long while back.

And here’s a Martha/Scotland-related resource & activities page.

    Well, we would certainly mirror what she said, some of the best books we’ve ever read!! Can’t wait to make the bannocks today 🙂 HAPPY FEAST!

    We made bannocks yesterday thanks to you and Elena.
    They were a huge success. They may very well become a staple in our snack/tea time menu.

    Oh… I feel like such a bad Scot! I totally forgot St. Andrews Day. Thanks for the bannocks recipe; I’ll have to try it one day. I enjoyed checking out some of your Scottish links – made me homesick.
