Watch Cook School's Jack and Joe each week make a Cook School recipe, see how they do it and then have a go yourselves at home.
This week Jack and Joe make flour tortillas using only three ingredients, watch them here and then have a go yourselves. Send us pics of your tortillas and we’ll post them on the site. Stay tuned for what Jack and Joe will be making next…*Stay safe in the kitchen, remember to always ask an adult before you cook and make sure an adult is with you when you use the oven, hob and a knife.
- measuring jug
- frying pan
- tongs or a fork, to turn the tortilla over in the pan
- 500g plain flour
- 300ml water
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- pinch of salt
Weigh 500g plain flour into a bowl. Measure 300ml water.
Add 3 tablespoons olive oil to the water. Add a pinch of salt to the flour.
Pour the water and oil into the flour and then using either a spoon or your hands (like Jack), stir to mix it all together.
Knead the mixture for a few mins and then divide the mixture in half, then half again to make quarters and then split each piece in half again to make 8.
Roll each piece to the size of a dinner plate. Heat a heavy based frying pan and fry a tortilla for a minute on one side, until slightly golden brown. Turn over with tongs and cook on the other side.
