 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 4 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 c Crisco (you could use bear
  • -grease or oolichan grease.)
  • 1/2 c Water to make thick dough
  • Additional shortening to
  • -grease the pan


The name of this dish, one which I believe comes from Scotland and
therefore is not the proper Indian name at all, refers to the fact that the
bread is turned. This bread has a nice flavor and it is not complicated to

Mix the dry ingredients together well. Cut in the shortening using a
pastry blender. Mix in the water and knead until the dough is very smooth,
about 15 minutes. You can do this in much less time with a powerful
electric mixer such as a KitchenAid.

Grease a black frying pan, including the sides, and press the dough into
the pan. Bake on top of the stove over low heat. Watch carefully so that
the bread does not brown or burn before the center is cooked. When the
bread is free from the pan, turn the loaf over and continue to cook. The
total cooking time will be about l0 minutes on each side.
