Easy No Knead Flatbreads

When I say these are easy, quick and delicious I am telling no lie. You literally add the ingredients together, divide the dough into 12 pieces, roll out each piece to a bread the size of a side plate and griddle.

Perfect for dinner party/BBQ or just to rustle up as a snack for yourself. I left my dough in the fridge overnight and made the second six the following day – which were just as delicious. They can also be frozen easily, defrosted thoroughly and warmed up on BBQ or griddle.

I really hope you try this one as it will be a great addition to any repertoire. Add fennel seeds or whatever spices you fancy to add pizazz!

Ingredients – Makes 12 flatbreads

  • 500g self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 500g natural yoghurt

Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until you have a dough (you can also do this by hand in just a few minutes.

If still a bit wet and hard to handle, add more flour. Bring dough together completely and divide into 12 pieces, roll each piece into a small ball. Dusting your rolling pin can help as this dough can get sticky.

Dust work surface with flour and roll out each ball to about the size of a side plate. Layer a baking paper sheet between each bread, so they don’t stick.

blog 5Put a griddle pan on high heat and when hot, cook each bread for a few minutes on each side until slightly puffy and charred (this can also be done on the BBQ). I served these with humous and baba ganoush but I’d also make these for salads and even as a kind of piadina, toasted sandwich.

    Looks easy enough! I don’t have a griddle pan but hope that this would work on the small cast iron pan that we use for eggs and pancakes 🙂

      That should work just fine….let me know, such a fail safe recipe from Oliver

    Absolutely perfect, will cook properly just minus griddle lines…..unless you have a BBQ.

  3. Fabulous recipe, thank you :). We found that frying them in the tinest amount of sesame oil added an interesting note. My sister has unearthed some basil-flavoured olive oil which looks like it would be even more fun to add…..

    Where is the ingredients list, especially carb counts? I make nothing without having this info.

    The ingredients list is under ‘ingredients’, my opinion is that people worry far too much about carbs. It’s all about balance and portion control Mr Don….
