Mixed Berry Bannocks
Bannocks are flat quick bread or any large, round bread baked or cooked from grain like oats. Round bannocks are cut into wedges and are often called scones. In Scotland, the words bannock and scone are usually used interchangeably.
This is a simple recipe to make for your Imbolc celebration or any morning when you want a very tasty breakfast.
Mixed Berry Bannocks
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole rolled or thick cut oats
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons salted butter room temperature, cubed
- 1 cup mixed Blueberries and Blackberries
- 2/3 cup buttermilk
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, orange zest, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
Cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Carefully fold berries into flour mixture.
Whisk buttermilk, egg, and vanilla together in a small bowl. Create a well in the center of your flour and berry mixture. Pour in buttermilk mixture and gently mix just until dough forms.
Flour hands, and place dough on a well-floured work surface.
Gently knead twice just to form a ball. Pat, it out into an 8-inch circle, about 1 inch thick.
Bake about 14 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
Cut into wedges and enjoy with butter or a drizzle of cream.

I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
