  • 250 grams Plain flour All Purpose, (2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 120 millilitres milk (1/2 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil + extra for greasing
  • 1 tablespoon butter - melted
  • On hand toppings of choice


  • Sift the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder into a medium-sized bowl.
  • In a jug whisk the milk and oil together and pour it into the flour mix.
  • Slowly mix it all together then knead for 8 to 10 minutes. Adding an extra sprinkling of flour if the dough is too sticky.
  • Leave the dough to relax for 10 - 15 minutes in a warm place.
  • Divide the dough into 5 equal sized balls.
  • Preheat your grill to medium and place a lightly oiled baking sheet under it so it heats up as well.
  • Roll the dough balls into shape, traditionally they should be teardrop shape but it doesn't matter what shape they are. As long as they are thin, no more than a few millimetres thick.
  • Sprinkle over any topping you may be using and lightly press them into the dough.
  • Place them on the heated baking sheet, one at a time or all together depending on the size of your grill and bake them under the heat. Turning them over after 1 to 2 minutes, once golden, to toast the other side for a few seconds.
  • Take them out from under the grill and brush them with a little, melted butter and eat immediately.
  • These do keep for 24 hours if kept in an airtight tin. But reheat in the oven for a few minutes before consuming.
