Easy Skillet Bread (for soup)

Skillet Bread

2 cups flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups milk
2-4 TBSP butter

Preheat oven to 400 F with skillet in oven. Mix together dry ingredients, then add milk until it looks like thick pancake mix (about 1 1/2 cups). Add butter to hot skillet and return to oven until butter bubbles. Pour dough into skillet and bake 15-20 minutes or until top is brown. Serve with soup by breaking off individual pieces.

Variations: Add cheese, bacon, taco seasoning, cornmeal or onions to dough.

This is the BEST bread to serve with soup. It's so fast and tastes heavenly. The best part of this bread is the bubbly butter in the skillet that creates a crunchy crust on the bottom of the bread.

This bread is best eaten the day it is made, so if you don't think you'll eat a full batch, feel free to cut the batch in half (images are of a half batch). Thanks to Kim Kindlespire for this amazing recipe.

Hi Astrid, isn't this a great quick bread for soups? Glad to hear it worked well with wheat flour. I usually make mine with half white and half wheat, so its good to know all wheat works great too. Thanks!

I made it again tonight, with bacon and shredded cheese and garlic powder mixed in - and more butter on the skillet... it was fantastic, again! Thanks so much! My family loves it!

You are saving my butt tonight. I was going to make cornbread to go with my chili, but realized at the last minute I didn't have the stuff for it! Thanks!!

Hey Emily this was awesome! I made it to go with Baked Potato Soup, and it was great! Both my girls loved it as well! Next time I will try a couple add ins to the dough. Thanks!

Ham and cheddar cheese in the dough - perfect! The kids like it a lot. I'm going to link to this recipe from my lunch blog, because I'm putting some in their lunch tomorrow!

Thanks again!

This is a lifesaver recipe. We had it with guinness stew and added cheddar and chives. Quick, easy and delicious.
