Being a coeliac sucks when it comes to bread – it’s one of the things I miss the most. Finding a gluten free bread fluffy and soft is so difficult because gluten helps build the elastic texture making it extensible. I tend to go for Warburtons Gluten Free White Farmhouse Loaf when it comes to purchasing my gluten free bread…
So today me and boyfriend decided to bake our own gluten free bread, listed below are the ingredients and method we used, enjoy!
- 500g gluten free white flour
- 3 1/2g gluten free dried yeast
- 310ml water
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
These are the ingredients used for one loaf – we made one plain and one seeded.
- Firstly, pour flour onto kitchen surface then make into a circle shape leaving a hole in the centre of the circle.
- Mix dried yeast to water and leave for 5 minutes – it is optional to add a pinch of sugar, this will give a slightly dark crust.
- Going back to our flour ring, add a pinch of salt to the hole and begin to pour the mixture to the centre. Using a fork mix in the flour in an outside to inside motion until a dough like texture.
4. Once dough like, use hands to begin kneading – moving and stretching the dough for roughly 10 minutes.
5. Pour olive oil into glass bowl and rub into the surface. Then place dough on top, covering in cling film keeping it nice and humid then placing it in the fridge for 2 hours.
6. Once proved take out bowl and knead for a further 2 minutes relieving air. Then place into a bread baking tin.
7. Cover bread tin with damp tea towel for an hour. Towards the end of this hour prepare oven at 200 degrees. Place dough into oven for 30 minutes.
8. Take bread of out oven and tap to hear hollow sound – this indicates a fluffy and soft inside.
And that’s how you make gluten free bread from home! We had loads of fun baking and hope you guys do too. Thanks for reading, please feel free to like and follow.
