RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

BAKED GOODS

Khubuz Araby (Arabic Bread), Arabian

Ingredients
  • 2 lbs. flour
  • 3 heaping tbsp. salt
  • 2 cakes yeast
  • Warm water
Preparation Instructions

Mix all ingredients together, adding water until dough is soft, but not too sticky. Cover well and put in warm place. Let rise 1 to 2 hours. When ready to begin, heat oven to 475-500°. Cut dough into medium-sized balls. Keep covered. When this is finished, the first balls have risen enough. Flour a board and get a rolling pin.

Press the ball of dough and roll out a little less than ¼ inch thick. Loaf will be round and flat. Put loaf on a flat cookie sheet or some equivalent. Bake less than 5 minutes. Loaf will be separated in the center, filled with air and will look blown up. Quickly place under flame to brown (½ minute). Remove loaf and place on towel covered rack or on top of stove and let cool. Repeat until the loaves are done.
