1Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
1Tbsp Sugar (I have not tried honey or rice syrup so I don't know if this will work as a sub.)
1 1/2c Water (105 degrees)
2 1/2c GF All Purpose Flour Mix (below)
2tsp Xanthan Gum
1 1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Cider Vinegar
Preheat Oven to 200 degrees. Once preheated cut oven off.
Grease 9x5 bread pan with olive oil & rice flour.
I Use Nesting Bowls for this recipe.
Combine Dry Yeast & Sugar in Small Bowl, add water & slowly stir till mixed. Set aside while mixing other ingredients (this step is called proofing the yeast). Yeast should become foamy if it's still active.
Combine Flour Mix, Xanthan Gum & Salt in Large Bowl.
Combine Eggs, Oil & Vinegar in Medium Bowl and beat with mixer till eggs are froathy.
Combine Liquid ingredients & Dry ingredients and stir. Batter will be like a thick cake batter.
Beat with Mixer for about 3 minutes to develop the xanthan gum. It is not necessary to have a pastry blade for this step.
Put Pastry mix into the bread pan, cover with a dish towel and place in oven for 60 minutes until dough rises.
Remove towel and set oven for 375 degrees and bake for 40 minutes.
Bread will brown and seperate slightly from pan when done.
Let cool in pan for about ten minutes. Remove from pan & continue cooling on wire rack.
I like to let my loaves cool completely before slicing. I also use an electric knife to cut mine, however, I'm sure any seragated knife would work.
(Gluten Free Flour Mix)
3 cups of Brown or White Rice Flour (whichever you prefer)
3 cups of Tapioca Flour
2 cups of Almond Flour (pricey but very nutritious)
1 cup of Sorghum Flour (not very nutritional, however, it can be used instead of corn flour and it is naturally sweet)
Note: Xanthan Gum is pricey but you will only use a tsp per loaf so it will go a lonnnnggg way.
I bought 1 pound of each of these flours and I was able to make 3 loafs. You can order these flours from Bob's Red Mill by the case of 4 which is cheaper than the grocery store. Some Walmart stores carrry "some" of these flours too.
YUMMMY! HOPE IT MAKE YOUR TUMMY HAPPY!
