Flat Breads

Stuffed with barbecued lamb cubes, salad and feta, and drizzled with olive oil, these were a hit at our family dinner.

3 c white bread-making flour
1 1/2 t salt
1 T sugar
2 t instant dried yeast
1 1/4 water, roughly at room temperature
2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Plonk all the ingredients into your mixer with the dough hook attached.
  2. Knead for 6 minutes or so (just enough time to finished the washing up from lunch!), adding more water if necessary to make a smooth and elastic dough.
  3. Place dough in a large bowl coated with oil. Cover and leave for about 3 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to the highest temp. Punch the dough down, then roll out in a rope, and pinch off 10-12 small pieces. Make these into small balls, then use a rolling pin to flatten into thin circles.
  5. Bake each circle for 4 minutes on the bottom shelf of the oven until the bread puffs up. Turn over and bake for 2 minutes more or until nicely browned and fragrant. Store the flat bread in a pile between dry, clean teatowels to keep them warm and soft until it's time to eat!

Are you going to post the recipe for the Delicious Lemon Pudding (with less calories) you mentioned in your previous posting? (Or is it a family secret kind of recipe!?)
