From Ainsley’s Food We Love, ITV

A quick and easy garlic bread that’s easy to make at home – a perfect accompaniment to your home cooked meals or just as a snack on its own.


Place the flour, baking powder, yoghurt, oregano and salt in a mixing bowl.  Mix together to form a soft sticky dough.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 30 seconds. Divide into 2 and roll each piece into a circle approx 5mm thick and approximately 24cm.

Heat a large non stick pan over a high heat. Place a little oil on kitchen paper and wipe the pan to lightly grease it.

Cook the flatbreads in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side. Wrap in a clean tea towel to keep warm.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small frying pan or saucepan over a low-medium heat. Remove from the heat, add the garlic and parsley to warm through in the residual heat. Season with a good pinch of sea salt. Gently score the top of the flatbreads and then spoon over the garlic butter. Dust with cayenne pepper and serve immediately.
