I was in a bit of a rush as I made this, and so I didn’t measure everything exactly, but the bread came out so well that I had to blog it. What set it apart from most of the gluten free breads I make was the texture- not at all crumbly, nice and soft- these achievements are very rare in my gluten free bread experiments! I will estimate what I put in, and then make it again soon to test the recipe. Its another super easy recipe and doesn’t require kneading! I suppose this bread is actually made using a cake technique, but the finished product is definitely a bread.
4 cups gluten free flour mix (1/3 quinoa flour, 1/3 rice flour, 1/3 buckwheat flour)
4.5 tspn baking powder
3/4 cup linseed
1/2 cup oil
1 cup soy milk
I’m not sure how much water. Somewhere between 1-2 cups, see method (sorry! :S) I used warm water.
3 tbspn egg replacer
1/2 tbspn dried sage
3/4 cup seeds (pumpkin and sunflower)
3/4 tspn salt
sesame seeds, for sprinkling
Mix the flour, baking powder, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, salt and spices together. In a seperate bowl put the linseed, egg replacer, oil and soy milk. Then, using a hand blender, whisk or food processor, whip it so it turns into a lovely thick mush. Add this mush to the flour mixture, then add as much water as needed to make the batter into cake batter consistency- it should be quite thin and easily pour.
Put the batter into two small greased bread pans and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for about 45 mins at 190 degrees celcius, until the top is nice and golden, and a knife inserted into the bread comes out clean.
Because gluten free breads like this tend to be really flat and yield tiny tiny slices, what I do is cut the whole loaf in half (or thirds) horizontally, and then cut these pieces into decent sized slices. Each small loaf yielded about 6-7 decent sized slices of bread.
Eat it while it’s fresh, because it won’t keep for long!
I ate mine with coriander pesto spread for lunch about an hour ago and I am fulllllll! Its really filling.
Please let me know if you try this recipe out! Have a beautiful day X
