  • Gluten-free bread

    I have been baking, or rather trying to bake, gluten-free bread but no matter what it ends up being super heavy and dry.
    It can last a week though

    My recipe is the following: (I only speak EU metrics)
    - 500g Gluten-free four
    - 1/2 coffee spoon of salt
    - Water
    - Olive oil
    - Quinoa-based leaven
    - 1 table spoon of honey (optional)

    I place the flour in a bowl, mixed with salt and leaven.
    The water is slightly heated, adding the olive oil and honey, I mix.
    I add the mixture into the bowl and mix first in the bowl, then I continue kneading on a surface.

    I cover with cooking plastic for 2 hours, before putting in the oven for 40min (at 220).

    Only once I managed to have it lighter but that's because I had to leave home and left for 5 hours.

    Any tips to make it better ?

    I have experienced the same thing when attempting gf recipes. I even switched to a gf baking mix thinking perhaps it was my choice of leavening (I used xantham gum mostly), but found I did not like the flavors that resulted.

    I have bought gf bread before that was incredible.......so, what are they doing differently? I don't know. :-) Pinterest and instagram seem to be great resources for finding the best of the best recipes. Google: A Minimalist Baker and check out some of her recipes. She has an ARSENAL of awesome, healthy, alternative recipes (some gluten free, some vegan, etc).

      Thank you for the information !
      I don't use Pinterest nor Instagram (no account).
      My last attempt (yesterday) produced a somewhat better result.
      I let the mix mount for 3 hours. The result is much better !!!
      Also I didn't use honey or any sugar.

      I will have to try to the same next week to know if this recipe is repeatable and produces the same result.
