Easy Flatbread

Makes around 6-8

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 300 g plain flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 50 g butter
  • 170 ml milk


  1. Melt your butter gently in a pan on the hob. Stir in the milk.
  2. Mix together your flour and salt. Add the butter/milk mix and stir well until a ball of dough is formed.
  3. Knead your dough well for a couple of minutes until soft and pliable. Leave for 30 minutes to stand (this is not necessary but means the dough is slightly easier to work with)
  4. Flour a clean side of worktop and roll a small amount of the dough between your hands - a little larger than a golf ball.
  5. Heat a dessertspoon of oil (I use olive) and a small knob of butter in a large heavy-bottomed frying pan on a medium heat.
  6. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin until nice and thin, almost as thin as a store-bought wrap. Leave thicker for a more naan-esque bread.
  7. Transfer to your pan and cook until golden and bubbly on top, about 4 minutes on each side.
  8. If you're cooking a batch, transfer on a plate covered in foil to an oven heated to 100 degrees c so they stay delicious and warm
