Directions

1. Mix the ingredients with enough warm water to make a moist but not a sticky dough.
2. Divide into 12 balls.
3. Cover and let the dough rest for 10 minutes or until ready to use.
4. Lightly moisten your hands with water and pat the balls into thick tortillas.
5. Heat an ungreased cast iron frying pan on medium high heat.
6. Place the cakes in the fryer.
7. Cook until the edges start to get dry. Lift the cake a little with a spatula to check for doneness.
8. When done, flip them over and cook the other side, until both sides are slightly brown.

Campfire
You can use a cast iron fryer or a griddle heated over the campfire coals. Or you can wash some large rocks and heat them in the coals.

6. If using the clean rocks, have them nice and hot before you place the cakes on them.
7. Place the cakes on the rock and let them cook until the edges start to get dry. Lightly peel back the edge to see if they are done. They will be slightly brown.
8. Turn them over and cook the other side.
