My friend Elizabeth is a wonderful baker and we have been planning a time for us to get together to do some baking for a while now. We finally made that happen this past week with homemade pita bread as our first experiment. Or perhaps I should say my first experiment. Elizabeth has made pita bread in the past, which is how the conversation started for us getting together. I have mentioned before, baking with yeast makes me a little nervous (although I am slowly getting more comfortable with it) but as soon as I saw an instagram post that my sweet friend posted of homemade pita straight out of the oven I knew I needed that goodness in my life. So began our adventure for an afternoon of baking together.
We followed Annie’s Eats recipe for her whole wheat pita bread and it turned out great. As someone who loves pita bread and eats it often it will be hard to go back to the store-bought kind. It’s surprisingly very easy to make and so much better. This recipe yields 8 soft and pillowy pitas so you can freeze a few to bring out at a later date if needed.
Scottie and I could not resist the warm pita as it was coming out of the oven. Dinner that night consisted of us standing over the island with this bread and a container of hummus. I regret nothing.
Elizabeth and I are planning to do this again soon and already making a list of all the things we want to try. We are able to do something we both love and catch up and talk in the meantime. Sounds like a pretty good thing if you ask me.
