This flat bread recipe is so simple to make, you can throw a batch together in no time. Unlike some other recipes it has only four ingredients, which you’re likely to always have in the house which makes it perfect. For kids, there are lots of steps to help with, from mixing and measuring to kneading and rolling.


Measure the dry ingredients

Get your little chefs to measure the flour and salt and add them to a small bowl.

Add the wet ingredients

Weigh the butter and milk (we always weigh liquids using the ml setting on our scales as it’s more accurate) and put them in a bowl together.

Pop them in the microwave until the butter has melted and the milk has warmed up a little.

Add to the flour and give it a mix until it comes together. 

Make the dough

Sprinkle a little flour down on the work surface and knead the dough for a minute or two. It doesn’t need too much kneading. If the dough is too wet, add a little extra flour.

Divide the dough into 4 equal sized pieces. Get your little ones to roll the dough out into thin (less than 0.5mm thick) circles.

Cook the flat breads

Heat a little oil in a frying pan, and cook the flat breads, one at a time, for a few minutes on either side. They should bubble up a little as they cook. They’re ready, when they’ve turned golden, crisped up a little and have some dark spots.

Keep the flat breads warm under a clean towel while you cook the remaining breads.
