Skillet Bread Ingredient Notes

In testing this skillet bread recipe with many variations, here’s what I found works best.

WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR

I’ve experimented with this recipe using 2 cups of whole wheat flour instead of 1 cup each of whole wheat and all-purpose. As whole wheat flour is a bit resistant to rising, I recommended mixing it with 1 cup of all-purpose flour.

You could also use 2 cups of all-purpose flour if you prefer.

Buttermilk

If you don’t have buttermilk, it’s easy to make your own. Here’s how:

  • 1 tablespoon vinegar + milk to reach 1 and 1/4 cup in measure.

Combine vinegar and milk to measure 1 and 1/4 cup. Stir together and let sit for 5 minutes before adding to the skillet bread. This will allow the milk to curdle slightly.

As you know, buttermilk brings an acidic property to the bread, which helps tenderize gluten giving baked goods a soft, full-body texture.

How to Make This Skillet Bread

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or spray an enameled cast-iron skillet with cooking spray.

Step 1: Make the Skillet Bread Batter

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Make a well in the center and add vegetable oil and honey; pour in the buttermilk. Stir just to combine.

Transfer the batter into the prepared skillet. Using a spatula, evenly spread it into the bottom of the skillet.

Step 2: Bake the Skillet Bread

Bake at 400F for 15 minutes. Then lower the oven temperature to 350F and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until golden.

Once baked, immediately slide the bread onto a wire rack to cool. Serve in wedges or slices with butter, honey, or other favorites.
