Garlic flatbread

A very soft flatbread with a mild garlic flavor. Perfect for paninis.

3 tsp yeast
1 cup warm water
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp sour cream
2 eggs
2 tsp salt
4.5 cup flour
2 cloves garlic
0.25 cup butter
1 tbsp baking powder

Mince the garlic. Melt the butter and add the minced garlic.

Bloom the yeast in half of the water with 1 tbsp sugar. Add the whisked egg, garlic butter, sour cream and the remaining water. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add and form a dough.

Knead until smooth. Coat lightly with oil and allow to double in a warm oven. Pinch off golf ball-sized pieces. Form into a ball and coat lightly with oil. Allow to rise for another 15 minutes.

Heat a pan on the stove top. Spray lightly with oil. Roll out the dough balls into 0.25 inch-thick discs. Bake one-by-one in the hot skillet covered with a lid. It will only take 1-2 minutes per side. Flip and continue baking. Cool in a wet towel on a cookie rack. Serve while still warm or store in the freezer.
