Home made gluten free brown seeded bread.

β€’17 Replies

Hi everyone,

As there is one thing dominating the news, I thought that I'd post a photo of some bread I made earlier today. I love baking my own bread as I know what I'm eating. My home smells wondeful and it's all very cheerful and I like that. I often substitute with different flour so this uses a shop bought GF flour mix.

Here's the recipe:

450g gluten free Brown Bread Flour (I use Doves farm)

30g sesame seeds

50g pumpkin seeds

1 tea spoon sea salt.

2 tea spoons yeast.

1 tea spoon brown sugar.

400ml luke warm water

3 free range eggs.

1 table spoon olive oil.

I use dried active yeast as some quick acting yeast contain gluten.

First dissolve the sugar in 100ml boiling water add cold water to 400ml and add the yeast and leave to wake up while you put everything else in a good processor and then add to the rest of the mix and whiz up, Spread into 2 small loaf tins or a large one I made a large loaf with 2 rolls. Leave to prove for approx 30 mins I use my top oven slightly preheated then bake in the main oven for approx 30/35mins. I sprinkle some seeds on top as well.

And I'll pop one in the freezer for another day. 😊

Looks yummy. The challenge at the moment is getting bread flour!

Thank you ChubbieChops I was in my local whole-food shop yesterday and they had plenty of flour and GF flour. The supermarkets will soon have more as they weren't prepared for the extra demand.

Sounds lovely Jerry I will try to gather the ingredients (IF they have anything left in the shops) and give it a go.

Hi, Jerry. Lovely to see this thread. The bread looks delicious!

Could you offer an opinion of using almond flour as a substitute flour?

Thank you in advance.

in reply to OilpainterUS

I've not tried and would only substitute some ground almonds for flour. Sorry thats the best I can do OilpainterUS

I have ground almond flour and almonds. I may make a small loaf and try it!

Thank you for the inspiration!
