It’s similar to Portuguese Sweet Bread (pao doce), as it has a rich texture and slightly sweet taste. We served it with soup, but it would also make a delicious french toast.
- ½ cup warm water (105°-110° F)
- 2 tsp Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar
- 1 package (2¼ teaspoons) active dry yeast
- 2 cups brown rice flour
- ½ cup potato starch
- ½ cup tapioca starch
- ½ cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar
- 15 tsp Pixie Dust
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp organic butter, melted
- 3 large organic eggs
- ½ cup warm almond milk (or milk of choice)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan or two 6-inch round cake pans.
In a small bowl, combine warm water, 2 teaspoons sugar and yeast. Stir just until dissolved. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and set aside in a warm area for 10 minutes. Mixture will form a foam head about an inch tall.
Place rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, ½ cup sugar, Pixie Dust and salt in the bowl of a food processor or heavy-duty stand mixer with paddle attachment. Blend dry ingredients together, about 3 minutes. If mixing by hand, place dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until well combined.
In a small bowl, whisk melted butter, eggs and warm milk until blended.
Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and combine. Add yeast mixture to dough and mix again until dough forms. If mixing with a heavy-duty stand mixer, this process takes about 5 minutes. With a food processor, about 2 to 3 minutes. By hand, about 10 minutes. Dough will be soft and sticky.
Transfer dough into prepared pan(s). Smooth top into desired shape with wet hands or a spatula dipped in water. Place in a warm area to rise for 40 minutes.
Score loaf top about ¼-inch deep with a sharp knife and if a shiny surface is desired, brush with an egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water.
Place pan(s) in preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes for a loaf, 35 to 40 minutes for two boules. Bread is done when bottom sounds hollow when tapped and internal temperature reaches 195° to 200° F.
Makes one 9×5-inch loaf or two 6-inch round boules.
