I have had a request from Lee for the flatbread recipe I use. It's so simple (must be if I can make them!) that I make them on a regular basis.... pictured left in case you were wondering ;)
250g (8oz) self raising flour
pinch salt (optional)
150ml (1/4 pint) lukewarm water (I use previously boiled water from kettle)
Mix with a knife until it starts to come together then use your hand. Knead for a short time sprinkling with flour if it feels a bit sticky. When you get fed up with kneading stop :) pat the dough into a sausage shape and cut into 6 or 8 pieces (I find 6 are better for us). Heat up a sturdy frying pan, pat each bit of dough into shape with your hand, stretching it a bit as you go, and dry fry (no oil needed) for a minute or so on each side or until lightly brown and a bit fluffy. You can eat them warm from the pan or cool and freeze, when they will keep for a couple of weeks. There's no preservative in them so they won't store well in a tin, freezing is better.
Using supermarket value flour these cost around 10p a batch and make lovely mini pizza bases.
Now I must away to make some veg soup for lunch :)
Thanks everso for popping in x
