    Although tortillas are traditionally made with masa, or ground corn flour, wheat flour tortillas are just as delicious to my mind.

    Serves: 6 

    • 280g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1/2 cup water

    Preparation:40min  ›  Cook:24min  ›  Ready in:1hour4min 

    1. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Rub in butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
    2. Add the water and mix until the dough can be gathered together. If necessary, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 15 minutes.
    3. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll into balls. On a lightly floured surface roll and stretch each round into a circle 35cm across.
    4. Cook in a large, dry frying pan over medium-high heat until brown spots begin to appear on the surface, then turn and brown the other side. Keep tortillas covered with a clean, dry cloth until ready to serve.
