Servings: 1 skillet bread
Author: Friendship Bread Kitchen
  • 1 cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter
  • cups flour plus extra as needed
  • 1 teaspoon oil plus extra as needed (canola or sesame)
  • ½ teaspoon salt plus extra as needed
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • ½ cup chopped scallions or green onions
  • ½ tablespoon black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons sesame seeds white or black (optional)
  1. In a large bowl, combine starter, 1 cup of flour, oil, salt and water. Using a wooden spoon (or dough hook if you have a stand mixer), mix and add remaining flour until fully incorporated. I worked the dough by hand towards the end to form a smooth ball--it will be sticky.
  2. Place the dough ball in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise for 1 hour or until it has almost doubled in size.
  3. On a floured surface, roll the dough into a circle. Brush oil onto the surface then sprinkle with scallions. Salt and pepper.
  4. From the bottom, begin to roll the dough into a long log. Then twist the log into a spiral.
  5. Use a rolling pin or the palm of your hand, flatten the spiral into a round disc (8" or 10", depending on the size of your cast iron skillet).
  6. Sprinkle sesame seeds on the top, pressing them gently into the dough, then turn it over and place the disc into a greased cast iron skillet. Brush the top with oil and sprinkle more sesame seeds. Cover with plastic wrap or a dish towel and allow to rest for 20 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 400 °F (204 °C).
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the top is golden. Place foil on top if the bread browns too quickly.
  9. Slice and serve warm.

    Stovetop method:
  10. If you want to make this on the stovetop, after the second rise place the well-greased skillet onto the stove on medium high heat.
  11. Once the oil is hot (make sure the oil is shimmering), place the disc in the skillet. Cook for about 6-8 minutes, poking a hole down to the bottom of the skillet in the center of the bread to help distribute the heat (a chopstick or skewer is good for this), until the bread has a golden brown crust. Flip over and cook for an additional 6-8 minutes.
  12. Slice and serve warm.
  13. ENJOY!
