Pan-fried bread

Usually, you have to be very thorough when baking bread. However, if you bake it in a frying pan, the bread will be a bit more rustic, but you are finished in half the time and it tastes wonderful. With the sour milk, the bread becomes kind of like a Norwegian pita bread.

Serves 4

1 ½ cup (4 dl) all-purpose flour
1 oz. (25 g) yeast
½ cup (1 dl) water
½ cup (1 dl) sour milk or kefir
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt


[1] Place the yeast in a bowl with the lukewarm water. Stir in the yeast and add half the flour, sugar and salt. Mix well and allow to stand for 10 minutes until the yeast starts to ferment.

[2] Add the sour milk and the remainder of the flour and stir well using a wooden spoon. Allow the mixture to stand and rise for 20 minutes under a moist cloth. The dough should be a bit sticky.

[3] Pour a tablespoonful of dough into a greased Teflon pan. Spread the dough outwards and fry it for 3 minutes on each side over a medium heat.
