I’ve already posted a recipe for a delicious gluten free bread, but when I almost ran out of rice flour the other day, and still had lots and lots of buckwheat flour, I developed a brand new gluten-free bread recipe.
- 1 1/3 cup of unsweetened almond milk.
- 4 eggs
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp apple cidar vinegar
- 2 Tbsp of maple syrup
- 4 Cups buckwheat flour
- 3/4 Cups rice flour
- 1 Tbsp xanthan gum
- 1 Tbsp quick rise yeast
Instructions if using a breadmaker
Add all ingredients in the order presented above into the breadmaker pan.
Select a rapid white or regular white course. These ingredients will make roughly a 1.5 lb. loaf, and most breadmakers will have an option to select the size of your bread.
If your breadmaker does not have a gluten-free course, you can select rapid white (this works on my breadmaker, which also does not have a gluten-free option in the menu). If it is underbaked, you can always finish baking in your regular oven.
Instructions for baking gluten-free the old fashioned way
Beat the eggs first, then add in the milk and other wet ingredients. Slowly stir in the flour and finish with the yeast. If you are making a yeast free bread, just follow all the same instructions but omit the yeast altogether.
Kneed the dough well, and leave it for about 30 minutes to rise. Kneed it again.
Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9×5 loaf pan. Bake for about 70 to 80 minutes.
Whether you use an oven or a breadmaker, always let the gluten free bread cool completely before cutting it.
A few notes: I’ve made gluten free bread before without using Xanthan gum. It comes out tasting the exact same, and it can be omitted if you have no access to this ingredient. However, the Xanthan gum makes your bread far less crumbly! Gluten free bread is more often than not a bit on the crumbly side, and since I’ve added xanthan gum that has changed dramatically. I am thoroughly impressed with the consistency of this last bread I made using this ingredient. I found it in the health food section of my local major supermarket. But you can also order it online.
