Homemade Flat Breads

We're making these for a Roman feast tonight. The girls are studying Latin this year and Snowy is studying Ancient Rome right now and it's a rainy, grey sort of day that could do with something delicious and fun.

2 cups bread flour
2 cups plain flour
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp salt
2 tsp dried yeast
300ml warm water

Dissolve yeast in warm water with honey. Rest for 10 min until bubbly.

Add salt and flour until dough comes together. Turn out onto floured surface and knead 10 min.

Let it prove until doubled in volume, about 1 - 2 hrs.

Preheat oven to 220 degrees C. Place a baking tray in the oven.

Cut dough into 12 pieces. Form into little balls, coat with flour and roll out into discs 1/2cm thick.

Bake one at a time by tossing the discs onto the heated baking sheet. It takes about 1 -2 min to cook, or when it has puffed up then collapsed a little. Remove from oven with tongs.

Cool before eating as they are filled with steam and very hot!

This fab recipe comes from one of my favourite cook books, Baking Bread with Children by Warren Lee Cohen.
