Scottish bannock is a simple type of scone that was cooked in the early days
over open fires.  Settlers from Scotland made a frugal bannock with lots of
flour, little sugar and drippings or lard.

1 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 c rolled oats
2 tbsp sugar (granulated)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter (melted)
1/3 c raisins (optional)
3/4 c water

Stir together flours, oats, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add melted 
butter, raisins (if using) and water, adding more water if needed to make 
a sticky dough. With floured hands, pat into greased pie plate. Bake in a 400F
oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until browned and tester comes out clean.  Cut
into wedges.
