An easy and quick bread that is heated in the pan. Our warm flatbread does not have to sit for hours to rise – it goes directly onto the pan and is ready to savour within just a few minutes. Making these delicious bread does not have to be complicated with a dozen ingredients or several hours of prep. Using baking powder, you can bake them in a warm pan immediately after putting together the dough. Serve the quick flatbread topped with greens and spices, with a salad or as the main course.


  • Mix rye flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and wheat flour in a bowl (save some flour).
  • Add milk and beat the dough well with a kitchen spoon. Take the dough out and knead it on a counter or table sprinkled with flour (add the rest of the flour if necessary).
  • Divide the dough into 6 portions and roll them out into round dough sheets (approx. 20 cm in diameter).
  • Melt some of the butter in a pan (approx. 21 cm in diameter). Place the flat dough in the pan and bake it at medium heat, approx. 2 minutes on each side.
  • Bake the last sheets of dough and wrap them in foil, so they stay warm and soft. Serve the bread warm.

No one wants to eat dry and heavy bread so make sure you go easy on the dough when kneading it – handle it with a light touch. This will give you fluffy and puffy bread that begin to form huge bubbles once it hits the heated pan. Bake the bread until the surface is bubbling and the bread has a golden colour.


Our flatbread are suited for freezing, so you can easily prepare them in advance to save time and simply defrost and reheat the bread whenever you need them. Once they have cooled off, wrap them in baking paper and place them in an airtight container before transferring them to the freezer.

A flatbread is any kind of bread that is flat and may be made with or without a leavening agent such as yeast or baking powder. Traditionally, it is made unleavened and contains flour, water, and salt as the main ingredients. The dough is then rolled out and baked in an oven or pan.
