This is a rustic bread that comes out sort of like a Norwegian pita. From Andreas Viestad, "New Scandinavian Cooking."


  1. In a medium bowl, stir together yeast, lukewarm water, half the flour, sugar, and salt; let stand 10 minutes so that the yeast can start to ferment.
  2. Stir in the buttermilk and the remainder of the flour.
  3. Place a moist cloth over the dough and let rise for 20 minutes; the dough will still be a bit sticky.
  4. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat.
  5. Drop a spoonful of dough in the pan, that has been lightly greased; spread the dough out and fry for 3 minutes on each side.
  6. Repeat with remaining dough.
