Simple Soft Flatbread


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (level cups, unsifted, not packed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Oil (for cooking, about 1 to 2 tablespoons is all)


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter and milk and heat on low just until butter is melted. Remove pan from heat and add the flour and salt. Stir until well combined.
  2. Sprinkle work surface with flour then knead for a few minutes until it is smooth (this doesn’t take very long). Add extra flour if the dough is too sticky. (You want it super soft, but not sticky )
  3. Wrap with  plastic wrap and rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  4. Dust bench top with flour, cut dough into 4 pieces, roll into balls, then roll out into about 1/8″ thick.
  5. Dip a pastry brush in the oil and spread over the bottom of a non stick pan with it. Heat the pan over medium heat.
  6. Place one flatbread in the pan, cook for around 1- 1 1/2 minutes – it should bubble up, then flip and cook the other side, pressing down gently if it begins to puff.
  7. Stack the cooked bread and keep wrapped with a lightly damp towel (I just use a spray bottle of water and give a towel a few squirts.
  8. Cook remaining pieces the same way. Eat anyway you please! It’s soooo good!
