Oasis Naan is a deceptively simple leavened flatbread. The recipe calls for 10 minutes of kneading by hand but I used my stand mixer instead. After making the Pecan Sticky Buns dough in the mixer, I thought I would try it since the dough hook worked so well. I’m a stand mixer novice, having used a hand mixer from 1960 that I inherited from my Aunt Crystal to make all my cakes for the last 20 years. It still works, but is now largely retired since I recently purchased a KA stand mixer. It has made quite a difference in my baking by making previously difficult recipes much easier.
The Naan dough came together easy. I made 8 breads, none with scallions and baked them for 10 minutes on my pizza stone. I topped them with salt and cumin. I also did top one with cinnamon sugar for my kids. I could have baked them longer but it turned out ok since we saved 3 naan for the next day and used them for mini pizzas. They weren’t hard and crispy the first time around so they did well in the oven a second time as pizza.
Stay tuned for French Strawberry Cake on June 19th
