Recipe 42: Five Minute Flat Bread with Cayenne Pepper and Garlic Olive Oil

You know I love bread, I have already shared a couple of my favorite recipes with you. However, all of these require quite some time before they can be eaten. My recipe for No-Knead Pain de Campagne is one of the most popular recipes on the whole blog, but it does require a long process, including resting overnight. Even my recipe for pita bread requires a few hours of rising. I needed a recipe that I could use when I was craving bread that would not take long to prepare, and I have found it! I basically started looking for recipes, and adapting them to my own likening, as I do more often. This bread is done in five to ten minutes, and it tastes delightful! Like the pita bread, this bread is made in a pan rather than in the oven.

What do you need?
  • Self-raising flour - 1 cup + 1/4 cup
  • Yogurt, I think you can also use a low-fat non-dairy yogurt - 1 cup
  • Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Cayenne - 1/4 tsp
  • Olive oil, garlic flavored
You will also need a food processor and a grill, but these are optional. You could work with your hands or with a regular frying pan. This makes four medium sized flat breads, but you could make them bigger or smaller if you want.

How to make it?
  1. Mix 1 cup of the flour with the yogurt, baking powder, salt, and cayenne in a food processor. Flour your working surface with the remaining 1/4 cup and add the very sticky dough. Kneed in the flour on the surface until smooth and still soft. Do not kneed all the flour in.
  2. When you form a nice dough like you can see above, cut it into the amount of flat breads you want to make. You want to work quickly here, because dough dries out very quickly.
  3. Heat up your grill now, and in  the meanwhile use a rolling pin to flatten the pieces of dough.
  4. Generously sprinkle garlic flavored olive oil over the surface of the pan, and make sure it is evenly distributed. Make sure it's on medium heat. Bake the flat breads for 2-3 minutes on each side.

Today I combined my bread with a lovely little salad for lunch, and it was heavenly! You can actually cut it open and make sandwiches with it too. It would also be lovely to eat with a nice spicy curry or soup. 

Enjoy this easy bread, I know for sure that this is not the last time I have eaten this!
