- 1 ¾ cups warm water (generous measure)
- 4 tspn plain dried yeast (not the surebake bread yeast which has many additives)
- 2 cups of white rice flour (brown rice flour is too heavy for the bread to rise)
- 1 cup tapioca flour
- ½ cup channa flour (chickpea)
- ½ cup buckwheat flour
- 1 tspn xanthin gum
- 2 tspn mineral salt
- 2 tbs rapadura sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbs unrefined molasses
- 1 tspn organic apple cider vinegar
- Sprinkle the yeast on top of the warm (body temp) water and leave to soften.
- In a bowl combine the flours, gum and salt.
- Put the eggs, molasses, sugar and vinegar in a bowl and whisk.
- Pour the water mix and egg mix into the flour and mix till smooth (it will look like a moist cake mix, not a dough).
- Pour the mix into a small bread tin. Leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes to an hour.
- Bake for around 20 minutes at 200 degrees celcius and then turn the oven off and leave for a further 10-15 minutes. Please note, baking times might vary between ovens. I use a new thermowave oven which cooks very quickly. Overcooking will make the crust very hard.
Fruit Bread – cover 1 cup of dried fruit with water and soak for at least half an hour. Drain, and add to the egg mix before combining it with the flour.
Herb Bread – add 1 tspn dried thyme and 1 tspn dried rosemary to the flour mix.
