The lovely Camilla, from Corlight Programmes, who I interviewed last year, shared this recipe last night.
If you don’t have yeast, no problem, and it’s a good compromise between a flat bread and a scone.
I think it would tick boxes for a lot of picky eaters – especially slathered in the favoured Vegemite, honey or peanut butter.
You can even slice in half and fill with ham and cheese.
As always, I recommend making these with your child. If they are in the early stages of branching out and eating new things, I would also be making this about the experience rather than the eating. Or making them one offer among other favourites.
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
– Mix well
Add 1 tbs butter
– Make into crumb, either by rubbing in or whizzing in the food processor
Add ¼ – ½ cup milk
– Tip onto a floured surface and press into a circle. The dough should be thin. Cut into triangles.
– Fry on a low to medium heat in a non-stick pan approx. 5 minutes on each side
The dough sort of puffs to give you a size that can be sliced down the middle.
