Hello beautiful people, I hope you’re all keeping well and staying safe. The best distraction I’ve found in these stressful times is COOKING!
Cooking has always been the one things I do where I’m totally absorbed in what I’m doing and in turn while cooking, I’m never thinking about anything else. So, I’m spending far too much time in the kitchen at the moment.
Bread has always been a bit intimidating to me but I’m really enjoying playing around with bread making now that I’m home all the time. This recipe isn’t for traditional bread however I am currently working on a sour dough started to be able to use in future bread projects so stay tuned for that coming soon (hopefully).
This flat bread is really delicious, really easy to make and really lovely drizzled with olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs served with warm dips or stews – YUM!
Here’s how to make it…
400g plain flour (*or self raising flour)
250ml warm water
7g dry active yeast
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil + 1 tablespoon to go over dough while resting
Mix all the above ingredients (except for the 1 extra tablespoon olive oil in a large bowl using a wooden spoon. The dough is very shaggy – just make sure all the flour is hydrated. Add your extra tablespoon of olive oil on top of the shaggy dough and allow to rest for 90 minutes to 2 hours. *If using self raising flour rest dough for an hour.
Now, add some flour to your work surface and kneed your dough. Kneed for a few minutes until dough comes together and is no longer very sticky.
Split dough into 6 – 8 small pieces on similar size and roll each one very thinly. If you lift the dough up it should stretch but not tear. If it tears, you need to kneed for a bit longer.
Heat a large non stick pan, remove excess flour from flat bread and place in dry non stick pan. Cook for about two minutes – flip when bubbles start forming. Then cook for an additional two minutes on the other side and repeat with the rest of your dough.
Then drizzle with olive oil, add some minced garlic, salt and pepper and fresh herbs – delicious!
