About this recipe: Easy soft flour tortillas made in a bread maker. Use these tortillas for your favourite Mexican dish, or for sandwich wraps.

Makes: 8 flour tortillas

  • 250g strong white bread flour
  • 125ml water
  • 3 tablespoons lard or Stork®
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:4min  ›  Ready in:34min 

  1. Place all ingredients in your bread maker pan. Select the dough cycle and press start.
  2. The dough should form a nice ball of dough. You may need to add a tablespoon of water or flour to get it there. When the dough cycle is finished kneading, stop the machine and remove the dough to a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough in to 8 equal size chunks.
  3. On a lightly floured surface coat both sides of the dough with flour and roll out thinly to a round shape.
  4. Cook one tortilla at a time in a heavy frying pan lightly coated with oil. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until they have dark brown looking spots. Remove from the pan to a plate and cover with a towel.


Brown bread flour or a mix half brown half white also works well.

I've just made these. Using the bread machine made it VERY easy for my poor old arthritic hands. There was no lard in the pantry and would never use St*rk so I used rape oil. Also, I cooked it on a cast iron bakstone over a hot hob, it holds the heat beautifully and evenly and needs no oil. The tortillas puffed up like balloons and I'm looking forward to having them filled with beans and salad vegetables for our evening meal.Just had a little nibble and the taste is fine. For years I've been looking for a recipe for wraps which would work, my quest is over, thank you! Forgot to say that the best thing about the recipe is that it uses no baking powder! - 08 Jun 2015
