Flour Tortillas

tortillas 002

At last!  It appears to be BBQ weather,  and whilst I’m stuck for Father’s Day ideas I figured a BBQ might be just the thing to treat your Dad.  Now BBQ’s don’t naturally lend themselves to baking but a batch of these flour tortillas will certainly go down a treat.

Tiger Bread or should that be Giraffe Bread?

Tiger Bread
Tiger bread is delicious, there’s no doubt about it.  Lovely soft white bread with a crispy crunchy crust.

But did you know that it’s really easy to make it at home too?

Here’s how


1 x Quantity of Basic White Bread Dough (recipe here)

Tiger Paste

35ml warm water

1/2 tsp dried fast action yeast

1/2 tsp caster sugar

1/2 tsp vegetable or sunflower oil

15g rice flour (rice flour also makes really great crunchy shortbread if you were wondering what else you could use it for!)
