Gluten free bread

Standard

A bit of googling for vegan gluten free bread recipes led me to a simple recipe at Hopes Kitchen which I made last night with the aim of sending ds1 off with a loaf this morning. I doubled the recipe and used (sshhhh) maple syrup instead of sugar. I just had a couple of slices this morning and WOW does it exceed my expectations. I was anticipating something gritty that I’d have to force down, but it’s really good. It provides that bread look, smell and mouth feel without the wheat, and is very moist. I will definitely make it again (though the gf flour mix is pretty expensive – I may have to mix my own again).

I’d like to add that I used Namaste Foods Perfect Flour Blend from my local health food store. It has sweet brown rice flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, sorghum flour and xanthan gum, so I didn’t need to add any extra xanthan gum when making this bread.
