Cast Iron Sourdough Flat Bread


Thursday Food Day!

Thanks to cityhippyfarmgirl for this amazing flat bread recipe!

I have been getting back to using my sourdough starter to make bread for the household.  It is starting to get more and more tasty the more recipes I try and the more I get practice caring for my starter.  It has taken a while, but I think I finally have the hang of it.

Today’s recipe is my favorite so far.  Sourdough flat bread.


1 cup sourdough starter

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 Tbs olive oil

1 1/2 cups flour

This first ingredient you will need is sourdough starter.  Check here for my starter recipe.

Mix the starter, salt, oil, and baking soda in a large bowl.

Mix the flour in slowly until dough forms.  You made need more or less flour depending on your starters consistency.  I find that if my starter is thicker, then the bread comes out better.  Also, if you don’t have one of these mixers, you should try it.  Very easy to use and much easier to clean than an electric mixer.

Add flour and mix by hand until you can form a nice ball of dough.  Cover the dough and put it in a warm spot to rest.  Mine didn’t really rise and it was still amazing.

Once the dough was done resting, I split it up into eight balls of dough.  I rolled each ball into an oblong shape so that we could use it as hamburger buns.  Any shape you like will work.








Get your cast iron nice and hot on the wood stove or whatever stove you have.  I use a small amount of coconut oil in the pan to keep it well greased.  Put the first piece of rolled out dough in the pan.  It only takes a few minutes to cook if the pan is hot.  Flip the bread over and give it a few more minutes.  They should bubble up a little bit.

Slap a burger on the finished bread and fold it in half for a delicious bun.  Or what ever you choose to use your bread for.  Eat up!
