gluten & yeast free bread

 

There are many gluten free bread recipes and a few yeast free ones, but gluten & yeast free recipes that you can also make in bread maker are difficult to find… so this blog starts at the point that I finally found a workable base recipe and will hopefully chart its development and improvement over the coming weeks and months.

The method and timings used are for the Panasonic Bread Maker, but I am sure they can be adapted to other makes with a little experimentation…. and if you would like to share your findings here that would be great.


 

Basic Recipe

 

Dry Ingredients :

2 Cups Doves Farm Gluten Free Bread Flour

4 teaspoons Gluten Free Baking Powder

2 teaspoons Baking Soda

2 teaspoons Castor Sugar

3/4 teaspoon Salt

 

Wet Ingredients :

about 1 tablespoon Olive oil.

2 medium or large Eggs

about 1 cup Milk - to make up volume.

Combine eggs and milk in a measuring jug, adding the milk to bring the total quantity of both to just over 1 1/3 cups.

 

Method:

Sift flour into the bread maker pan then add other dry ingredients. Now select a program that will mix the ingredients right away (on the Panasonic this is the Gluten Free program). Keep the lid open, and after a minute add the oil, with a spatula carefully help the flour mix with the oil for a couple of minutes, until about 30 sec before the mixer starts to mix fast, now add some of the egg/milk mixture and keep adding in bits until all in, again assisting the mixing with your spatula, ensure that all the flour is mixed in. Mix for two to three minutes until the mixture is smooth, but do not over mix. Now stop the program. I usually remove the mixing blade at this point. Reset the program to Bake only and set for around 70mins. Timings vary depending on how much liquid is in the mix and how much oil.

 

Variations:

To give the loaf more taste, I usually add a quarter teaspoon Cinamon and some roasted Sesame Seeds probably a couple of teaspoons. Just put in a dry pot and heat until starting to brown and then crush add to the dry mix. You can also substitute Sesame or other oils for the Olive Oil.

Hope this works for you.
