This week we made Pitta Bread. It was unplanned really, I'd made pulled pork for dinner and needed some bread to go with it, so I grabbed the kids and asked them to help.
Last week we were joined by Little E from All About a Mummy blog. What a beautiful little helper you have. I'll look forward to seeing who joins us this week.
As I said, we decided to make Pitta Bread to go with our Pulled Pork which is a new favourite of mine. For many years I didn't Pork because for some reason my mum had told me it made me sick. Maybe I grew out of it, but it certainly doesn't make me ill now. I'm still not a huge fan of pork, but I love slow cooked pulled pork marinaded with spices. I like to serve it with a lovely salad of fresh leaves and tomatoes with a tasty vinaigrette. Salads tend to get neglected during the winter months but they need not be. In fact, I'm on a mission to eat more and am planning on a salad with bread-crumbed Camembert later. You can find lots of healthy salad recipes which can be used all year around. I do love the handy bags of salad leaves you can pick up at the supermarket.
- 200g Strong white flour
- 7g sachet of fast acting yeast
- 1tsp salt
- 160ml warm water
- 2 tsp olive oil
mix together the flour yeast and salt in a large bowl.
Add the olive oil
Mix in about half the water and then keep adding a little at the time until it all comes together in a dough.
Turn out and knead the dough.
This is one job kids love to do
Heat oven to 250C gas mark 9
Place a baking tray in the oven to warm up
Leave the dough to prove for about half an hour to an hour
break into six pieces
stretch or roll each piece into pitta bread shapes
Place pitta breads on warmed tray and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes until puffed up and golden.
We did ours in two batches of three pitta breads.
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
