After various comments about grinding quinoa and other grains over complicating cooking/baking, I thought I'd bake some gluten free white bread using just supermarket gf white bread mix and as I baked it this morning my house smells wonderful and wholesome and I will enjoy fresh bread rolls for my lunch today. I always add sesame seeds as they are packed with calcium are crunchy and I really like them.
Here's the recipe:
450g GF bread flour a 1 table spoon of olive oil 1 tea spoon salt 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder 1/2 tea spoon vitamin C powder, 3 free range eggs 400ml of Luke warm water with a tea spoon of brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of yeast powder. I add sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds to the mix and I sprinkled more golden flax seeds with sesame and pumpkin seeds on top. Leave it to prove for approx 30 mins and bake 170C for 25 to 30 mins
Enjoy this mini heat wave and the bank holiday now folks... 🌞⛱
Wow Jerry, that looks fabulous - enjoy
Hey thanks Alicia, I've already had some...😀
I bet it was delicious, it certainly looks good.
I've now bought the sun dried tomatoes ready to make the Buckwheat Groats bread so it'll have more flavour. Just waiting for the Buckwheat to come through the post, would be much easier if I could buy in-store but never mind.
Here's to happy baking 😀
Thanks again Alicia, I enjoy home baked bread and think yours will just get better.
The big problem with gluten free bread is the temperature that wheat starts to cook at which's 48C. Whereas most GF flours start at 70C+ To compensate for this a combination can be better. Tapioca starch is the number one choice because it starts to cook at 62C.
You can buy coarse tapioca starch "Gari" in many Asian shops and Chinese food shops sell Bot nang which's tapioca starch. I used to make my own mix and used 50g tapioca starch with a 450g loaf.
And possibly a small amount of arrowroot, which is a natural binder might be worth a try.
So good luck and I look forward to hearing how you get on. 😀
Thank you Jerry for the information, I didn't know that. I do have my own flour mix but once I've used that up.im goingvto buy it ready mixed. The different ingredients are taking up so much room in my cupboard 🤔.
Once again, thank you.😀
