Bake the Bag - Wk 5: Whole Grain Flatbread

This week's bake the bag challenge is whole grain flatbread.  The King Arthur Flour looks nice and pretty, and mine are anything but.

A few comments...

1. Recipes like this with pan "fried" bread need to be doubled or tripled to account for all the undercooked test breads while you find the proper pan temperature.  Just like pancakes.

2. 6 Tablespoons of water isn't even in the right ballpark for this recipe.  The instructions call for a "soft, elastic, slightly sticky dough."  6 tablespoons didn't even bring the dough together.  I added a seventh tablespoon and got close, but by then the dough was in a ripping-trying-and-failing-to-knead-it stage.  I live in a relatively humid climate, so there's no reason for me to need to add that much more water.

So we'll see how they taste.  I might be having lettuce wraps instead for this week.
