Cinnamon Sugar Flatbread

Cinnamon Sugar Flatbread


I’ve got a flatbread this week, somewhere in between a pita and a flour tortilla. The oregano is a really good addition, and though you can add it into the dough instead of just on the surface like I do here, I found you get plenty of flavor from having it on the surface, and I like the way it makes them look. These cool and soften well if you cover them with a towel, but they’re also really good hot off the pan. In fact while I was making them I stole one to make myself a quick little dinner, a chicken breast, the flatbread and some pesto!

Funny story with this loaf… It was intended to be a loaf made of almost completely spelt flour. This was a great intention, until I went to the flour freezer and noticed the bag was mostly empty. Well, that wasn’t going to work. So I switched tracks and decided to throw in a whole bunch of flour types! I didn’t have much direction in exactly how much of any flour I added, I just went by feel … and how much was left in the bag! So even though it was a rather random assortment of flours, it turned out really yummy. Some sweetness, and a lot of nuttiness in the flavor profile.

Almond and Satsuma Bread

In my continuing quest to stick any fruit I can into a loaf of bread, I wanted to try adding some type of citrus to a loaf of bread. Pears, strawberries, and bananas worked, so why not right? I figured that if I left individual sections whole and was very gentle when handling the dough, they wouldn’t add too much excess moisture. That meant I needed to use a rather small citrus, and since I happened to have satsumas around they got the nod. I made from zest from them to put in the dough too, and used an orange olive oil so the bread itself would also carry a bit of the citrus flavor. Almonds seem to pair the best with citrus to me, so I used some slices almonds in the loaves. In the future I don’t think I’ll use sliced almonds, they don’t distribute quite as evenly in the dough, live and learn!
