Spread the love

Māori have made their own bread for a long time.  Takakau is the word usually used for bread made with flour and water only.  Today I will give you a Māori flat bread recipie that I have followed with success for many years.


6 cups of flour

6 teaspoons baking powder

500 ml milk

pinch salt


Turn oven on to 200 degrees celcius.

Sift flour and baking powder together.

Add salt.

Lightly mix in the milk.

Turn mixture onto a floured surface and knead lightly.

Flatten with hands or a rolling pin.

Place onto a greased oven tray.

Place in oven for twenty minutes

Once bread is cooked remove from oven and place into a damp teatowel.



This is an easy recipie and is great for children to help make.  Ensure they have clean hands before joining in.
