Daring Bakers - Challenge FIVE!

The challenge for September is ... *drum roll* ... Lavash Crackers!


*crickets chirping*



Haha. If that too was your reaction when you saw Lavash, then don't worry we're both similarly ignorant of Armenian-esque cuisine. I logged on to The DB forums after washing the chocolate pastry cream off my hands full expecting to be hit with another diabetes inducing round of chocolate, cream and butter, but was pleasantly surprised by my first savoury challenge!

More bready than cracker-ish but still tasty!

No lengthy pic-fest this time guys SORRY I'm too lazy to photoshop and prettify all the pictures like I usually do. I'll just leave you guys with a video of how you work your lavash dough in the true armenian way!!

Or maybe not.

Hey! Glad to see your Lavash turned out similar to mine! Nice Blog!

Lovely crackers! If I tried to flip dough that way, I'd end up wearing it!

Mine tended to be a little bready too, but I like them that way. Love the addition of video!

i think it depends on how thick you make it... the thin ones i made were very crispy! love the video :)

Your crackers turned out perfectly and the way you set them up and photographed them with the dip is gorgeous :)

Very nice looking Lavash and dip. Now if you can toss the dough overhead, you'll be making pizza too.

Beautiful crackers and I'm pretty sure with your flipping skills we could sell you to one of those armenian sweat shops. ;)
