GF Recipe Summary
Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Brown Honey Bread: Dairy-Free Brown Honey-Accent Bread that is perfect for sandwiches and general enjoyment!
This is a somewhat mild tasting brown yeast-leavened bread that gets its flavor from honey, molasses, flax, buckwheat, and teff. Top it with some buckwheat kernels, sesame seeds, or poppy seeds for some added flare. In addition to being glutenfree, it is also dairyfree!
Gluten-Free Recipe Card and Pictures
2 Eggs (Large) Plus 2 additional Egg Whites ⅓ Cup Vegetable Oil (Canola) 1 Tablespoon Dark Molasses ¼ Cup Honey 1½ Cups Warm Water (105-115° F), Divided 2 Packages Active Dry Yeast 2 Teaspoons Sugar ⅓ Cup Warm Unsweetened Apple Juice (105-115° F) 2 Cups Cornstarch ½ Cup Tapioca Flour ¼ Cup Glutinous Rice Flour 1 Cup Light Buckwheat Flour ¼ Cup Teff Flour 1 Cup Flaxseed Meal 4 Teaspoons Xanthan Gum 1 Teaspoon Salt 2 Teaspoons Sesame Seeds, Buckwheat kernels, or Poppy Seeds (for top of bread)
In medium sized bowl (yeast mixture will expand), place ½ Cup of the warm water, yeast and 2 teaspoons of sugar; stir until dissolved. Let stand for 10 minutes. Mixture will become foamy (if not, the yeast is not active and should not be used).
In mixing bowl, combine eggs, egg whites, vegetable oil, remaining 1 cup of warm water; mix. Add honey, molasses and apple juice; mix.
In large bowl, add dry ingredients: cornstarch, flours, flaxseed meal, Xanthan gum, and salt; stir together. Add these dry ingredients to the wet ingredients already in mixing bowl. Add yeast mixture to mixing bowl also. In mixer, mix all of this together at low speed setting until combined. Increase speed to high setting and mix for 4 more minutes.
Place the dough in a round Pyrex casserole dish (2L size — if in doubt, it should hold 8 cups) which has been sprayed with cooking oil. Cover dough loosely with plastic wrap and allow dough stand for 1 hour in a warm, dry location (dough should eventually rise about 1 inch above rim of pan).
Place in preheated 375°F oven (oven rack should be set to second from bottom position) for 65 minutes (after 20 minutes, place foil over top of bread to avoid over-browning the top crust).
To create a rosemary/garlic variation, just add the following ingredients into the mix just before the final mixing step:
1 Tablespoon Dried Rosemary 1 Tablespoon Dried Chives 1 Garlic Head, which has been previously roasted 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
