Move over banana bread, there's a new easy bake in town - and it's perfect for BBQ season, topping with cheese, or enjoying with dips.
If you're sick of making banana bread, or just want to try something new, then you'll love this super simple recipe for flatbreads.
The recipe calls for just a few ingredients that you might already have at home, plus a frying pan.
The dough will keep for 24 hours in the fridge, so you can plan ahead and enjoy your homemade flatbreads two days in a row with minimal fuss. Cooked ones will also keep in the fridge, and are easily warmed up the next day in the toaster, or enjoyed cold.
We served ours with salad and fish, but they are also excellent to soak up Bolognese sauce, served with curry, chilli or a stew - or with some cheese melted on top. They'd also be great served alongside a BBQ, or as part of a mezze platter to enjoy with dips like hummus.
The recipe is so simple it won't be long until you've mastered it and are making exciting variations!
What you'll need:
Tsp baking powder (no worries if you don’t have any)
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, if a little too dry add a touch more oil and if too wet a little more flour.
Knead the mix for a couple of minutes until smooth.
Roll into equal sized balls, and leave for 5 minutes.
Flour a work surface and roll out balls until about 1/2cm thick.
Heat a pan on a medium-high heat with a tiny amount of oil, when hot cook flatbreads for 90 seconds on each side.
When they have dark caramelised areas and have puffed up, they are ready to serve.
