Gluten Free (GF) Teff Loaf for a Bread-maker - I find that this loaf is better in the bread-maker compared to my efforts in the oven. This does only make a small loaf but this bread is so much better fresh...I always eat more on the day it's made, particularly if it is still warm! I personally think teff makes a tasty loaf...so many gluten free loaves are rather bland!
125g Teff flour (brown or white)
125g Potato starch/flour
210ml tepid water
1tsp dried yeast
scant tsp salt
1tsp xanthum gum
2tsp baking powder (b.p)
1 medium egg (beaten)
Small handful of seeds (optional)
I have an elderly Goodmans bread-maker...built before breadmakers had a specific GF function.
First add the water, then carefully add the flour. Add the salt and the yeast in opposite corners, then add the b.p. and the xanthum gum. Finally add the beaten egg. I tend to add this as I start the programme so that it mixes in straight away. I select the Rapid Cycle (1hr59mins) which starts mixing straight away. When I feel so inspired I add a sprinkle of seeds at this point, such as sunflower, poppy or pumpkin seeds. With my machine it is always advisable to open up the machine after it has been mixing for a few minutes to scrape the flour out of the corners...it doesn't matter if you don't...you might just have slightly floury corners to your finished loaf! When the programme is complete remove the loaf and set it on a cooling rack. Or dive straight in, it crumbles a bit more but it tastes good!
