At one point we thought someone in the family might be gluten intolerant..Bread is a staple here..so I had to try and make a good gluten free bread.. My attempts proved unsuccessful. Until this one..
The recipe can be found on many sites..and it is on one of them..that someone posted and said..she threw everything in the bread machine and voilà! Since I had had no success in hand made and baked,I did this one in the machine..Just right..not pretty like hand formed and oven baked..But it's part of this one's secret..
Here is the recipe I found on a few sites~
It's a bit Challah~ish~
2 cups rice flour
1 3/4 cups tapioca flour
1/4 cup sugar+ 2 teaspoons sugar
3 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup lukewarm water
1 cup lukewarm water
1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
sesame seed (optional)
1.. In mixer, combine the flours, 1/4 c sugar, xantham gum, and salt.
2 Dissolve the 2 tsp sugar in the 2/3 cup of water and mix in the yeast.
In a separate bowl combine the butter with the additional 1 cup water and vinegar.
3 With mixer on low speed, blend the dry ingredients. Slowly add the butter/water mixture. Blend in the eggs, 1 at a time. The dough should feel slightly warm. Pour the yeast mixture into the ingredients in the bowl and beat the highest speed for 2 minutes.
4 Place the bowl in a warm spot, cover with greased plastic wrap and a towel, and let rise approximately 1 hour
. 5 Return the dough to the mixer and beat on high for 3 minutes. Spoon the dough into a greased, floured loaf pan. Fill 2/3 full, you may bake the remainder in greased muffin tins, etc. (or make all rolls~about 18). Sprinkle tops with sesame seeds. Let the dough rise until it is slightly above the tops of the pans, about 45-60 minutes. 6 Preheat the oven to 400 F and bake the large loaf for approximately 1 hour. Bake the rolls 25 minutes.
My Notes.. baked it right in the machine and put all the ings in the machine..Easy as pie.. I know the gardens have nothing to do with this bread..just remembering:-)
Do try this bread if you have a machine..It's quite tasty..
