Guyanese Butterflaps

Ingredients to make Guyanese Butterflaps

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk powder
  • 1 and ½ teaspoon instant dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water plus more if needed
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 4 cloves of garlic peeled and crushed into a fine paste

How to make Guyanese Butterflaps

  1. Add sugar and yeast to ½ cup warm water. Stir and cover for 10 minutes.
  2. Whisk together flour, salt and milk powder in a large bowl.
  3. Add yeast mixture and oil and knead dough. Add more water if the dough feels hard or dry. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes till dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Place dough into a greased bowl. Cover with a towel and keep in a warm place for 1 ½ hours or till double.
  5. Punch the dough. Mix butter and garlic paste.
  6. Pull out small balls of dough. On the floured counter, roll out a circle about 15 cm in diameter. Spread 1 teaspoon of butter garlic spread. Fold dough into a semicircle and then fold further into a triangle.
  7. Repeat with remaining dough. Arrange butterflaps on a greased baking tray. Cover and keep in a warm place to rise for 45 to 50 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or till butterflaps turn a beautiful golden brown.

My Tip:

Add some dried herbs to the garlic butter paste for added flavour.
