Dad’s Flatbread

While Mom was busy with the rest of the meal, Dad helped by making this flat bread. There's no mistaking that this flavorful bread is homemade. It has a wonderful texture and lovely golden color. -Anne Heinonen, Howell, Michigan

  • Makes
    2 loaves (32 slices)

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cup rye or whole wheat flour

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of water. Add sugar, oil, salt, rye or whole wheat flour, 3 cups all-purpose flour and remaining water; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Divide in half. On a greased baking sheet, flatten each half to 1-in. thickness. Pierce each loaf several times with a fork. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

    I have been making this bread since it was first published in TOH and it comes out perfect every time. I use all bread flour with no problems. Also makes great dinner rolls.
