Gluten-Free Bread Recipe

A loaf of homemade gluten free bread, partially sliced into thick slices on a wooden table.

Ingredients:

  • Warm water: 350 ml (12.3 oz)
  • Sugar or honey: 10 g (0.35 oz) or 10 ml (0.35 fl oz)
  • Active dry yeast (gluten-free): 7 g (0.25 oz)
  • All-purpose gluten-free flour blend (with xanthan gum): 450 g (15.9 oz)
  • Salt: 5 g (0.18 oz)
  • Olive oil: 15 ml (0.5 fl oz) plus extra for greasing
  • Apple cider vinegar: 5 ml (0.17 fl oz)

Instructions:

  1. Yeast Mixture Preparation:
    • Mix the warm water, sugar or honey, add yeast in a small bowl. Stir lightly and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it froths, signaling the yeast is active.
  2. Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour blend and salt.
  3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • To the dry mixture, add the activated yeast mixture along with the olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Mix thoroughly. The dough will resemble a thick batter more than traditional bread dough due to the nature of gluten-free flour.
  4. First Rise:
    • Grease a bread loaf tin (approximately 9×5 inches or 23×13 cm) with olive oil. Transfer the dough into the tin, leveling the top with a wet spatula. Cover with a clean towel and let it rise in a warm spot until it’s just below the top of the tin, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Baking:
    • Preheat your oven to 220°C (428°F, gas mark 7). Bake the risen dough for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  6. Cooling:
    • Let the bread cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

This recipe provides a simple and versatile gluten-free bread that’s perfect for sandwiches, toast, or to enjoy on its own. Remember, gluten-free doughs are typically more moist and sticky than their gluten-containing counterparts, so don’t be surprised by the batter-like consistency.
