Gluten Free Sourdough Skillet Bread
Believe it or not, most inquires we receive from customers lately are requests for quick and easy flatbread recipes. It seems people are motivated to make delicious one-pot and skillet meals at home. Flour Farm, reporting for duty. We LOVE our gluten free Sourdough Skillet Bread recipe so much we’ve made it at least a dozen ways in the past two months. This is a no knead, no rise, egg free, yeast free, and possibly dairy free recipe. Our daughter loves it no matter the version we bake up. Kid approved is always a bonus!
Quick, Easy & Adaptable GF Flatbread
When we say this Sourdough Skillet Bread recipe is quick and easy, this is no joke. You are in and out of the recipe in 30 minutes. Yep! You read that correctly, 30 minutes. In addition, you can adapt this so many ways! Use sourdough that has been discarded or recently fed. Bake it with psyllium husk, (more spring,) or xanthan gum. Add herbs, or leave them out. Add cheese, or bake it vegan. Top it, or leave it naked. Make it a meal, or serve as a snack. Your imagination is the limit. Truly! This is a special GF flatbread recipe that you can make your own.
The GF sourdough starter pictured below was fed 5 days prior to baking, allowed to sit at room temp for an hour after feeding, and then refrigerated. We pulled it out of the fridge and took a picture. One cup (227g/8 oz) of cold starter is very dense. As it warms up, the starter expands and you will see a mound form in the container. The cracks in the top of the starter indicate that your starter is healthy and ready to bake.

Make Skillet Bread!
Step 1: Add the oil to the skillet and place the pan in the center of a cold oven. Turn the temperature to 425 F/220 C and preheat the oven and skillet together.
Step 2: In a small bowl, add the warm water and sourdough starter. Set aside.
Step 3: In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add in any extra ingredients from the “add-in” list above, and whisk to combine.
Step 4: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Set aside until the oven reaches full temperature.
Step 5: Carefully remove the smokin’ hot skillet from the oven and place on the stove top. Pour in the batter. Quickly spread and smooth it to the edges of the pan with the silicone spatula. Top, or drizzle with olive oil, if desired.
Step 6: Return the skillet to the oven uncovered. Bake for 20 minutes. The sides of the bread will turn a dark golden brown and the top will start to bubble. You can remove it from the oven, (see step 8,) or broil for a more golden top, (see next step).
Step 7: Turn off the heat and turn on the broiler to low. Watch the bread! Don’t step away as it only takes 1-3 minutes to brown the top to your desired taste.
Step 8: Remove from the oven and place on the stove top for a few minutes. Transfer bread to a cooling rack or a cutting board if eating right away.
Store in a covered container on the counter for up to 2 days, or freeze for up to a month. Reheat on a baking sheet in a 300F/150 C oven.
