Since starting to grind my own flour, I’ve been thinking about all the bread products we eat here – loaf bread, dinner rolls, biscuits, pizza dough, tortillas, and probably more I’m not thinking of. I don’t make all of this, but am thinking more and more about it. Fresh ground white whole wheat flour is just SO good and I want to get the great taste and exceptional health benefits from it as much as possible.
So, this week I decided to try making tortillas this week. And I want to tweak the process a little and try a couple other recipes.
Here’s the recipe I tried:
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup oil (butter, lard, coconut oil etc)
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 cups flour
Mix first 4 ingredients. Then add flour and mix. Knead until ingredients come together to form dough. Form small balls, cover and let rest for 10-15 minutes. Roll out on floured surface thin and round. Then cook both sides in a cast iron pan. They only need a minute or so on each side. The dough will bubble up a little. Flip when it starts to brown.
Overall, this was really good. I learned they don’t need much cooking time at all. I made the first couple way to crispy. So, I’m going to keep trying this. I like it!
