    PANCAKES

    2 eggs
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 3/4 cups milk
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    2 tablespoons melted butter
    3 tablespoons sugar
    1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt

    Beat egg with hand beater until fluffy; beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth. Grease a heated griddle.
    Pour about 3 tablespoons batter from tip of large spoon or from pitcher onto hot griddle.

    Cook pancakes until puffed and dry around edges (tiny bubbles will begin to form).

    Turn and cook other sides until golden brown. Flipping once should be enough. The first pancake isn’t always the best one.

    1 cup butter
    1 cup sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Using an electric mixer at medium speed, cream together butter and sugar, adding sugar gradually. While mixing, add egg, sprinkle in salt and vanilla. Beat well to combine.
    Stir in flour and mix only until flour is incorporated – do not over mix.

    luckily flour last quite a long time if its stored somewhere dry.

    Theres lots of reciepies for flour if you gte yeast you can make your own bread; http://www.botham.co.uk/seed/bread1.htm

    you can make some cakes and sponges but they usually call for self raising.

    crepes are quite easy too; http://www.channel4.com/food/recipes/chefs/gordon-ramsay/crepes-suzette-recipe_p_1.html

    you dont have to make the sauce but its really good if you do, but crepes are also good with all sorts like chocolate spread, fresh fruit or even just a bit of butter.

    Flour tortillas

    3 cups all-purpose flour
    5 tablespoons lard or vegetable shortening
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup very warm tap water
    Directions
    1In a food processor combine 2 3/4 cups of the flour (reserve the remaining flour for rolling out the dough) with the lard or shortening.
    2Pulse several times until the fat is evenly distributed throughout the flour and no particles of fat are visible.
    3Dissolve the salt in 2/3 cup of the warm water.
    4With the machine running, pour the liquid through the feed tube in a steady stream and stop the machine once the dough has come together in a ball.
    5Feel the dough; it should be a medium-stiff consistency, not too firm but not as soft as most bread doughs.
    6If the dough is too stiff, divide it into several pieces, sprinkle with 1 or 2 tablespoons of the remaining water and process again until a ball forms.
    7Divide the dough into 12 portions, roll into balls and place on a flat surface or plate.
    8Cover with plastic wrap and allow dough to rest for at least 30 minutes.
    9On a lightly floured surface roll each ball into a 7-inch circle by flattening the ball of dough, lightly flouring it, and with a rolling pin rolling forward and backward over the dough, then turn it a sixth of a turn and roll forward and backward again.
    10Repeat the turning and rolling process until a 7-inch circle is formed, re-flouring the work surface as necessary.
    11Place the tortilla on a plate and cover with plastic wrap.
    12Repeat the rolling out process for the remaining 11 balls of dough.
    13Heat a flat cast iron griddle over moderately high heat.
    14Lay a tortilla on the griddle and cook for 20 to 45 seconds until tortilla bubbles and lightly browns on the underside.
    15Flip the tortilla and cook it for another 30 to 45 seconds.
    16The tortilla should be lightly browned but still soft and flexible.
    17Transfer the cooked tortilla to a heavy towel and wrap it up.
    18Cook the remaining tortillas in a similar manner and store stacked in the towel to keep them warm and soft.
    19Tortillas can be stored in a sealable plastic bag and refrigerated until ready for use.
    20To reheat the tortillas, tuck them in an”envelope” made out of aluminum foil and heat in a 325 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

    French Bread

    INGREDIENTS
    6 cups all-purpose flour
    2 1/2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
    1 tablespoon cornmeal
    1 egg white
    1 tablespoon water

    DIRECTIONS
    In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, yeast and salt. Stir in 2 cups warm water, and beat until well blended using a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.
    On a lightly floured surface, knead in enough flour to make a stiff dough that is smooth and elastic. Knead for about 8 to 10 minutes total. Shape into a ball. Place dough in a greased bowl, and turn once. Cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled.
    Punch dough down, and divide in half. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover, and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll each half into large rectangle. Roll up, starting from a long side. Moisten edge with water and seal. Taper ends.
    Grease a large baking sheet. Sprinkle with cornmeal. Place loaves, seam side down, on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly beat the egg white with 1 tablespoon of water, and brush on. Cover with a damp cloth. Let rise until nearly doubled, 35 to 40 minutes.
    With a very sharp knife, make 3 or 4 diagonal cuts about 1/4 inch deep across top of each loaf. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 20 minutes. Brush again with egg white mixture. Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until bread tests done. If necessary, cover loosely with foil to prevent over browning. Remove from baking sheet, and cool on a wire rack.
