Food for Thought; 2 Ingredient Dough

I’ve been seeing 2 Ingredient Dough pop up in various places recently. From Facebook to Pinterest. And I was skeptical. I mean, I struggle to make decent bread or dough with a long list of ingredients how were 2 ingredients going to cut it? More than that how would the 2 ingredient dough even rise without yeast?

However, one mass sandstorm coupled with the worst night sleep we’ve had in a long long time that resulted in me in the toddlers bed (thankfully his new bed is a single!!) I didn’t have the energy to face the shops to come up with a different baking task that would occupy him.   And I decided that the sensory aspect would be enough of an incentive to at least try it.   Plus my yogurt was going out of date!

My original thought was just to use the peach yogurt for a taste of peach, but then we found a tin of peaches in the back of the cupboard and decided to go that one step further in adding a third ingredient to the 2 ingredient dough, a filler. A fruity centre if you please…

2 ingredient dough


1 cup of self raising flour
1 cup yogurt

(Peaches or fruit to fill if you fancy it)

How to do it

Preheat oven to 180 degrees

1.  Combine the yogurt and flour in a bowl until it comes into a ball

2.  Tip out onto floured surface and knead for 5 minutes
**or let toddler loose on squashing and rolling and be prepared for the mess**

3.  Roll out with your hands into a rough rectangle

4.  Lay peach slices on top

5.  Roll Swiss roll style as best you can

6.  If yours works better than my mess you can then cut into pinwheels, as it was I just transferred the log to a greased baking tray

7.  Cook for 15 minutes, until the top is golden brown

8.  Cool and serve

The toddler thought it was cake so he was sold immediately!

I liked that it only has 2 ingredients and that it could be knocked up in 10 minutes.   I am going to get some Greek yogurt to try a plain bread flavour for easy pizza dough lunch going forward as it really is that easy!

However – the worst bit?  The mess.   But that’s more the toddler than anything else, the dough got EVERYWHERE.  Though he declared it delicious while raw, I suppose that for once I wasn’t attempting to stop him eating raw egg!!!
