Skyr Ripple Bread with Anchovy and Walnuts


The ripple bread itself has only four ingredients: @icelandicprovisions skyr, all-purpose flour, salt and baking powder. Mix, roll, add to a cast iron and bake until golden – it’s so easy! Skyr is what makes the bread fluffy, tender, malleable and ready in 10 minutes. Unlike other varieties of flatbread, you don’t have to wait for the gluten to slacken, the skyr keeps the dough pliable and easy to roll out, plus it includes the acid we need to react with the leavener.
