Here is what I know:

1 tablespoon baking powder to 2 cups of flour mixed with warm water until you get a sticky ball, then roll it and cook it in a frying pan.

Any other ideas along this line for making a wrap with some flexibility to it?

I am looking to narrow that down a bit to one that somebody is really happy with from personal experience. I did a web search before posting BD.

Flat bread wrap. The problem is that there are many types. You have the Armenian, you have the wrap like I had in Afghanistan, the tortilla wrap depends upon the content of the wrap and what is wrapped. It is also a matter of aging.

You could watch a guy stick his arm down a hole that served as an oven and have the dough stick to the side. He would then pull it out with two sticks. If he wanted to use it as a wrap, it was used hot. If you exposed it to the air for about 15 minutes, it became hard. Afghanistan.

Wrap - a tortilla type wrap is not appropriate for a crepe. It is not appropriate for Peking Duck wrap. Same observation about the Peking duck wrap. If you wait too long after making, then it hardens.

If you are contemplating the wraps in fast food places, they would have to be slightly heated if you wanted them flexible to make a sandwich in place.

If you buy a sandwich wrap in the grocery store, it was made while slightly warm.

Did you ever wonder about how fortune cookies are made. I saw them made in an alley in SF about 40 years ago. A flat mold. Woman with bandaids on her fingers inserts a paper fortune and then folds in 4. Still a form of wrap.

If you have a favorite wrap made in a bakery locally, just ask the guy how he makes it. He will give you the timing.

Hey UneasyRider.

I just use the tortilla mix that wallyworld sells (Or Food City etc) I just put up about 20 pounds of it. (Froze it in freezer for about 3 months, then packed into jars with an O2 absorber.)

2 cups of mix, 1/2 cup of water roll it out to desired thickness, cook in greased skillet. Pretty simple stuff!

Sorry if this is not what you are looking for!
