Savory Corn Flatbread

Savory Corn Flatbread


"This tasty flatbread- flavored with sun-dried tomato pesto -is about as far from a traditional recipe as you can get. One evening I had the urge to bake something, so I improvised with the ingredients at hand. My family and I have been hooked ever since. As well as tasting great, this recipe is incredibly quick and easy, because it's heated on a stovetop, rather than in the oven."

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Mix in the sun-dried tomato pest until evenly distributed. Add water 1 teaspoon at a time so that the mixture is just moist enough to form a ball.
  2. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Form the dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, flatten the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness, or about as thick as a very thin pizza crust. Place the flat dough into the preheated pan, and fry for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. When done, each side should have several browned spots. Serve immediately, or store at room temperature. It keeps very well.

This is a response to the last review. This is my recipe, and I can see why it didn't turn out so well for you-- the website administrators didn't get it quite right (they edited my recipe slig...

We have rewritten the ingredient line for water in response to the submitter's comments to leave room for more flexibility.

Ummm...I'm still trying to figure out what to say about this. It's....different. It's...pasty. It needed a lot more water than two tablespoons. It is...not good...but not horrible either. I...

Outstanding recipe. The amount of water needed depends on a few variables- I added 'till it was silky and elastic as I mixed it. It would take a psychic detective, not a fellow cook to tell prec...

I didn't have pesto, so I just left that out. It was pretty good. Simple and kind of old-fashioned. I had it with some veggie soup and it was a good accompaniment.

Very creative but not edible. Is it missing oil? I used 1/4c water. It just tastes like a flour mixture. I couldn't even swallow it. Sorry!

This recipe works really well and is a delicious quick accompaniment to most meals - I also added some fresh rosemary that I had in my cupboards (2 sprigs, finely chopped), and a teaspoon of gr...

This is awful, sorry. It is just salty, dry, fried flour paste. I read the submitter's posts and responses to reviews about what the consistency should be be like, but it didn't help. What it's ...
