A few weeks ago, I came across a new bread recipe at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free. I had a recipe that was working alright for me, but I decided to give this one a try. It looked simple enough, and Amy had labled it "Perfect Bread". It was totally amazing! SO much better than the recipe I had been using. It is soft, a little chewy, moist, it doesn't crumble at all! I love it, the kids love it, even hubby likes it! I'll post the recipe here how I usually mix it together,with my alterations to the original recipe in bold:
Perfect Gluten Free Bread
369 grams gluten free flour** (this works out to 2 3/4 cups for me)
2 1/4 teas xanthan gum
1 1/4 teas salt
1 T honey
1 1/4 cup warm water
2 1/4 teas yeast
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teas cider vinegar
** Amy has her own special flour blend that she uses. I don't use the garfava flour. My flour blend is 1 cup brown rice flour + 1 cup sorghum flour + 1/3 cup potato starch + 1/3 cup tapioca starch. When I make this bread, I use 2 cups of the brown rice flour blend, plus 3/4 cup millet flour.
-In a bowl, mix together the flour, xanthan gum, and salt. Set aside.
-In another small bowl, combine warm water and honey. Add yeast. Let it proof for 5-10 min.
