I’m on a bread making mission this year. Trying to make 52 breads this year. That’s a bread every week. In case you weren’t sure.
Honestly, I’m starting to think I may have bitten off more than I can chew on this project. But I’m just going to keep going. I mean, worst case scenario I end up learning to make a ton of delicious bread and… well, that was sort of my goal anyway… so, it’s a win win situation all around.
This past weekend I decided I wanted to try to learn to make homemade flour tortillas. It was really fun-as with most loaves I made I don’t get to use my rolling-pin. I used a recipe I found on Tasty Kitchen (love that site).
Needed: 3 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/3 cup oil (I used vegetable) and 1 cup warm water.
In a bowl mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Pour in the oil and mix with your (clean) hands until it is well incorporated and crumbly. Pour in the water and combine until a dough forms. Cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and allow to rest for 20-30 minutes. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and roll out as thin as you can! Cook in a cast iron pan or non-stick pan on medium heat for a minute or two on each side. It will puff up a bit as you cook. Enjoy as tacos, burritos, quesadillas, etc.
