Basic but Impressive

Fresh Flat Breads

Quick and easy, these are a great addition to any quick and easy lunch to add a filling bread that doesn’t take hours to bake



1 pack of active yeast

1/2 tsp caster sugar

120g plain white flour

1tsp salt

1tbsp dried thyme

1/2pt warm water

1 tsp olive oil



  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients
  2. Create a small well in the centre and slowly add the water whilst constantly working the mixture to create a ball of dough
  3. Once all gathered, turn out onto the side, and knead the dough for 5-8 minutes, until smooth and springy
  4. Coat the bowl lightly with oil, then return the dough and cover with a tea towel before placing in a warm spot
  5. Leave the dough to double in size (for around an hour)
  6. Turn out again, and knock it back slightly
  7. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces
  8. Work each piece into a ball and roll out with a rolling ping until very flat
  9. Pre-heat a griddle pan (with no oil) and when very hot, add the breads, one at a time
  10. Heat on one side without moving until bubbles appear on the surface (1-2 minutes), then flip the breads and heat on the other side
  11. Once lightly browned on both sides, complete cooking the rest of the breads, then serve immediately


Great additions to slow cooked lamb and pulled pork.
