Best GF loaf ever!

This has the heft of a 'real' loaf, is delicious bread on day one and excellent toast from then on. It will re-hearten your gf friends and Shipton Mill's gf bread mix is the best flour I've come across yet (thanks Shipton Millers xx) I've done in a bread machine overnight, and in a tin / oven this morning, added spices and seeds, and it's All Good. This is filling the large blank space that was 'missing bread' from life.

water 320ml

cider vinigar 1tbsp

olive oil 4 tbsp

egg 1

xanthum gum 1 tbsp

Shipton Mill gf bread flour 450g

honey 1 tbsp

salt 1tsp

yeast 2 tsp


For a bread machine loaf stick it all in, and press go on the gf setting. Depending on your machine, it'll take under 2 hrs. Boom!

If you're going for the hand job, which makes a better loaf tbh, I mixed it in a mixer with a dough hook. You can't knead this like regular dough. I mixed hard for a good 10 mins with said dough hook and then put into a throughly oiled 1lb loaf tin with a single lining of greaseproof as a precaution.  I proved it in the tin for about 45mins till it added 50% in size. Baked at 180 for 29 mins or so, depending on your oven, by which time it doubled in size. Knock out of tin and check for 'hollow bottom knock' and then leave to cool. Best on day one, but good as toast for up to 5-6 days.

I always use best ingredients I can; posh olive oil, but veg oil is in the original recipe I adapted this from; honey but you can use sugar. I've added chia seeds, poppy seeds, pink peppercorns, whatever you might like. Really the best loaf of bread you'll get in the gf circuit, somewhere between sourdough and heavy savoury cake.

Can't commend the SM gf bread mix enough. Excellent!
