Batter tortillas

Submitted by: HIPPICHICK1

Introduction

I found a similar recipe years ago in a Betty Crocker cookbook. I like this recipe because I'm not a huge fan of corn tortillas.
I make mine with light spelt flour rather than a wheat flour as I have a wheat intolerance. The calorie count for spelt and wheat are quite similar, so you may not have to re-calculate if you use wheat flour.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    2 cups dark Spelt Flour
    1 cup Yellow Cornmeal
    1 egg
    1 tsp salt
    3 cups water

Directions

Makes about 11 - 12 tortillas of 76 g each

Put dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and blend well. Add the water and egg and beat until the batter is smooth, about 2 mins.

Heat a large non-stick pan on medium while you are beating the batter. Spray lightly with cooking spray or olive oil. Using a half cup measure, measure the batter, pour in it the pan and then tilt the pan around and around to spread out the tortilla batter. Cook until the edges look dry-ish (about 1 min or less) then flip and brown the other side.

The batter seperates a little bit because the cornmeal is heavier than the other ingredients so mix the batter before you scoop.

I cook one at a time, stack them and then cover with a moist paper towel tucked under the bottom tortilla. Keep in a warm over (150 degrees) until serving time. They normally don't stick together, but then spelt flour has less gluten than wheat so if using wheat flour you may want to seperate the tortillas with a piece of parchment or waxed paper.
