Gluten Free and Eggless Homemade Bread

4 Comments

I’ve been on the hunt for a store-bought, eggless, gluten free bread because I’ve been craving a slice of toast for weeks now (especially since my boss gave me a jar of her homemade plum jam – that jam is phenomenal!). I finally found a loaf at Whole Foods, but it was $9 for a very small loaf of bread! I like fun food finds as much as the next person, but that just seemed too steep for me. I decided it was time to pull out my bread machine and start googling like a mad woman.

Just so you know, it was just as difficult to find a recipe online – the vegan recipes I did find required so many different flours that I just didn’t want to add to my pantry at this time. I finally came across the following recipe, and the bread turned out fantastic.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup warm (110°) water
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1 3/4 cup GF all-purpose flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill GF All-Purpose Flour)
  • 3/4 cup tapioca flour (or arrowroot powder – same thing)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 Tbsp xanthan gum
  • 2 1/2 tsp rapid rise yeast
  1. Mix the all-purpose flour, tapioca flour, brown rice flour, and xanthan gum in a medium bowl until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Add the water, oil, salt, and honey to the bread machine in the order listed. Gradually add the flour mixture to the machine. Make a small well in the center of the flour (make sure no liquid pokes through) and add the yeast into the well.
  3. Set the machine for either the white or basic bread cycle (or the gluten free cycle if your machine has it) and a medium crust. Also, unless the size is preset, set the size to 2 lb.
  4. Remove the bread from the machine and let stand in the pan for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove the bread from the pan to a wire rack and allow to cool at least 30 – 45 minutes before slicing.

I’m enjoying a slice of this bread toasted with Spring Hill butter and plum jam (and a cuppa Earl Grey of course).  I’m going to have to maintain some level of control with that whole loaf of bread waiting for me…the possibilities are endless right now!
