1 loaf


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ¼ cup butter, melted


  1. Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Pour water and melted butter over flour mixture. Stir with a fork to make a ball.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently about 10 times. Pat into a flat circle, 3/4- to 1-inch thick.

  3. Warm a greased frying pan over medium heat.

  4. Place dough in the hot pan and cook until browned, about 15 minutes per side. Use two lifters for easy turning.


The bread can also be baked on a greased baking sheet at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes.
