Gluten Free White Bread Loaf

How expensive are gluten free bread loaves?! Although they are convenient and most brands seems to have worked out how to not get so many holes in the slices (but not all), I still like baking my own bread when I have time.

 

Did you know that gluten free bread can easily be made in the oven? You don’t need a fancy bread maker at all… The recipe itself is super easy to do, bread just takes time to prove and bake.

 

Ingredients

  • 450g gluten free bread flour (I tend to use Dove’s)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of quick yeast
  • 2 tablespoons of caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 325ml milk (I use semi-skimmed)
  • 1 teaspoon of gluten free vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
  • 6 tablespoons of oil

 

Method

  1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, salt, yeast and sugar
  2. In a separate large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk and vinegar
  3. Add in the flour mixture and continue to mix until a sticky dough is formed
  4. Add in the oil and continue to mix until combined
  5. Place the dough in a greased bread tin, cover with a damp teatoowl or cling film and leave to rest for 1 hour, preferably somewhere warm
  6. Bake in the oven preheated to 200°C for 40/45 minutes

 

Tips

  • The dough will rise almost double in size whilst resting so be prepared that whatever you have used to cover the dough may stick to the top slightly
  • The bread does not rise much more when in the oven, so do no be alarmed by the size of the loaf after resting and definitely do not try and take some of the dough off the top (when I did this the first time I made it I ended up with a large hole between the bread and the crust)
