Gluten Free Bread

Holly asked for gluten free bread..and here is a recipe that my friend Mark uses.  I’m unsure of his source, but I know he’s used this recipe for a couple of years.

Gluten Free Bread

1 cup of brown rice flour
1 cup almond flour
3/4 cup white rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
2 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 eggs
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice
1 – 1  1/2  cups warm water

Mix together in the dry ingredients, using a whisk to mix well.  In a second bowl, mix the eggs, honey, oil, vinegar or lemon juice, and the first cup of water.

Mix until it is thick — should be as thick as pancake mix.  Add additional water as needed to reach the “pancake mix” consistency.

Grease and flour a bread pan, and pour the mixture into it, allowing it to rise for about 45 minutes, or until it is about 3/4 of the pan high.  Heat the oven to 350 degrees F, and bake for about 30 minutes or so.

Notes:

  • Mark also uses this recipe to make pizza.  It’s been a while, and he isn’t around to ask, but I know from my notes on this recipe that he added a bit of extra oil to the batter, and then oiled the baking pan quite a lot., allowing the dough to rise sightly before baking at 400, for 10-12 minutes.
  • Add dried fruits, nutmeg, cinnamon (re-hydrate the fruit slightly by soaking these in very hot water for about 5-7 minutes).
  • Add cinnamon and raisins, or cinnamon and dates (doing the same to the fruits..re-hydrate slightly by soaking these in very hot water for about 5-7 minutes.

    I would like to find a gluten free bread recipe that could be used for runzas. I have lots of runza filling frozen, but have yet to find a gluten free bread dough that would roll out and wrap around it. The one you give here is poured into the pan, as are all the ones I have. That doesn’t work so well for runzas!
