Easy Flatbreads


Makes 6

Prep time: 2 hours

Cook time: 10 mins


Special equipment needed:

Frying Pan


Ingredients

1 tsp sugar

2 tsp yeast

200ml Milk

100ml Water

350g Bread Flour

1 tbsp Salt

1 tbsp Cracked Black Pepper

1 tbsp Olive Oil



Method:

  1. Combine the milk, water, sugar and yeast in a bowl, stir and leave until it becomes frothy. This is the yeast activating and in a warm place should take 15-30 minutes

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, pepper and salt

  3. When the yeast is active, add the olive oil to the yeast mixture

  4. Gradually add the wet mix to the flour mixture, stirring until a dough ball forms

  5. Lightly flour your work surface and tip the dough out onto it

  6. Knead the dough ball for 10 minutes until smooth then place in a covered, greased bowl until it has doubled in size (about an hour should do it)

  7. One the dough has risen, knock the air from it with a couple of firm punches

  8. Separate the dough into 6 equal portions. Let these portions rest for 15 minutes

  9. Shape the flatbreads by rolling each out into 10” ovals about 5mm thick, pressing out any air bubbles

  10. Cook the flatbreads in a hot, lightly oiled frying pan for up to 3 minutes each side, until they are charred on both sides but still have a soft, bouncy texture in the middle

enjoy these however you see fit and remember, anyone can cook!
