Sometimes the most simple things are the best ideas.
I am not one of those people who does everything self, from the scratch, just because I can. I am a believer that there is some great quality, ready-made products today that can and should be used. It saves not only time and money, but also energy and the resources we have.
That being said - you knew there was a 'but' coming - this simple, easy to make crackers or flatbread, that only takes a couple of ingredients and is ready in minutes might be something you want to try to make at home.
The recipe is just so simple - two parts flour to one part of water + salt. To make four flatbreads I use 2 dl of flour with 1 dl of water and 1/2 teaspoon of salt adding 1/2 teaspoon of spices for more flavor. If you have a gluten intolerance, just use gluten-free flour and you are set.
Mix the ingredients in a bowl until they form a smooth dough.
Divide the dough into equal parts, and roll them into thin circles.
Set the circles on a hot pan (one at the time) and let them cook for a minute or two before flipping over to cook the other side.
There will be black spots on the flatbread, and it might puff up if the dough is not very thin.
The flatbread will be crispy on the outside, soft and warm on the inside. They are meant to be eaten directly after cooking them.
A cup of tea, some cinnamon flatbread with applesauce, and a good book - just some of my favorite things on an autumn evening... I hope you enjoy it as well.
Till next time
