Quick Gluten-free Yeast Bread

This is a basic recipe for gluten-free bread.  Leaving out the gluten of course has a profound effect on the bread so don't expect it to be just like conventional bread.  The dough will be more like a batter, and the finished bread will be denser in texture.  It would be worth experimenting with this recipe - try adding other non-gluten flours - chestnut, maize, lupin - to vary the texture and flavour of the bread.

Wot, no gluten?

Let us know how you get on - we'd very happy to post successful changes to this recipe.

Ingredients

  •  Potato Flour 250g (9oz)
  •  Soya Flour 140g (5oz)
  •  Buckwheat Flour 50g (2oz)
  •  Dried Yeast Sachet 7g
  •  Salt ¾ Teasp.
  •  Sunflower Oil 2 Tablesp.
  •  Warm water 450ml (15 fl.oz)

Instructions

  1. Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin.
  2. Sieve the flours, yeast and salt together. Make a well in the centre and add the sunflower oil and water.
  3. Mix thoroughly to form a smooth paste. Pour into the loaf tin. Bake at 180°C (350°F) / Gas Mark 4 for an hour until golden and firm to the touch.
  4. Remove from the tin and cool on a wire tray.
  5. Note: Some dried yeasts seem to work better than others - so experiment with different types.
  6. Variations: Add 1 - 2 oz toasted sunflower seeds.
  7. Add 1 - 2 teasps. Caraway seed to decorate top or incorporate.
