  • 400g self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 300ml warm water
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


    1. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. In a measuring jug mix the (luke) warm water and oil together and add to the flour.
    2. Stir together until all ingredients are well combined and form a dough.
    3. On a floured surface, knead the dough for 2-3 minutes. Divide the dough into 8 balls and roll each one out individualy. Aim for each tortilla to be a similar size to a dinner plate, the dough will shrink back abit when it is resting.
    4. In a large frying pan warm a teaspoon of oil and cook each tortilla for 1 minute each side on a medium heat. Each side should just start to brown on any raised areas.

I liked this recipe. I certainly think 200ml is the correct amount and it takes a bit of experimenting with thickness of tortilla and it how much oil to put in the pan but generally this is a good recipe. Very tasty

This recipe is terrible! The amount of water is ridiculously excessive! Having seen a high rated recipe with very few ingredients I thought this would be a good easy recipe to do whilst looking after my newborn, I was mistaken! People have rated it good after having to change the recipe - please don't do this! We don't all have time to check the comments of a recipe. Had to bin half of it as didn't have time after having to try and save it. Very annoyed

So... not enough time to put leftovers in the fridge, not enough time to read the comments to ensure the recipe is a good one but seemingly plenty of time to write a comment yourself. Good one.

I used 200ml of water instead worked perfectly,
Tasted very nice :)

I think someone's finger slipped on the keyboard - 200ml water makes a better dough!

Thanks for posting this recipe--I have been rather dismayed to find that all the commercially available tortillas are packed with artificial preservatives and palm oil! I think even I could have a go at these...

This was soo wet I had to add more flour to even get anywhere close to a dough and able to roll. ultimately it 's nearly half liquids (353ml inc the oil) to half flour - should've just added the water til it looked dough like rather than pour it all in like the recipe suggests!

Yes NB on this: for those who don't bake too often, remember that flours vary a great deal in their absorbency. You may need to follow your instincts rather than the recipe...but it's easy to sort: if too dry, add a bit more liquid; if too wet, a bit more flour.

Really easy and tasted great. Much better than shop bought and you can make the amount you need.

Are any remaining Tortilla's freezable? This recipe would make too many for just me.

Once the dough is cooked how long will the tortillas last for?
