Well it’s not even mother’s day, but I have to tell you how wonderful my mom is. When my daughter was first diagnosed with Celiac’s Disease my mom jumped right in. Though we live in Colorado and only visit her in Canada once a year for a couple of weeks, she rid her entire house of gluten so that it wouldn’t be a concern when we are staying there (we still have yet to go). She also started practicing recipes at her house, so that when she came to visit she would be able to make us some yummy goods. On top of all that she also had a ton of different kinds of flours delivered to our house so that it would be stocked when she did come and bake. Fabulous right? Well this is one of her latest bread recipes (oh did I mention that I’ve asked her to cook without the “gums” too) and it’s yummy. The girls ate it last night, hot out of the oven, for dessert!
Karen’s Gluten Free Farm Bread
- 1/4 cup of warm water (105 – 110 degrees)
- 1 tbsp organic maple syrup
- 1 tbsp active dry yeast
Wisk the above together and set aside for 5 to 10 minutes. Should be foamy.
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 3/4 cup sweet white rice flour
- 1/2 cup teff flour
- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
- 1/2 cup mixed seeds (sunflower, sesame, flax, etc)
- 1/2 tsp salt
Combine the above into a mix master bowl, and mix together. Set aside.
- 1 1/2 cups of hot water
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup or honey
- 2 organic eggs
- 2 tbsp melt organic butter
Combine the above and when the yeast mixture is ready add it to this wet mixture and beat together.
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1/3 cup psyllium husks
Add chia seeds and psyllium husks mix to the wet mixture and let rest for 2 minutes to let the chia and psyllium release their gelatinous substances. Whisk one more time.
With the paddle on the mixer, add liquid to flour mixture and beat on slow for 1 minute, then turn up to #2 and beat for another 2 to 3 minutes.
Mixture will be stiff and sticky. Put into a greased 9 X 4.5 loaf pan (glass one if you have it) and let rise in a warm place (like a warmed up oven that has been turned on for 2 minutes then turned off) just make sure it is warm but not hot.
When dough is over the top of pan (about an hour) take out of the oven and turn the oven on to 375 degrees. When the oven is ready, bake loaf for 1 hour or until golden brown all over.
Take out of pan and let cool on rack.
