Gluten-Free Sorghum & Buckwheat Yeasted Bread

Gluten-Free Sorghum & Buckwheat Yeasted Bread

If you use a longish 25x10cm loaf tin, together with a baking sheet for a lid in this recipe, you'll get light loaf, delicious toasted and great with savoury toppings. Using a baking tray for a 'lid' converts your tin into a 'Pullman Loaf' tin, so called because the long narrow shape resembles a train carriage, and makes lots of slices for sandwiches. The lid helps to keep the steam in and preventing it from drying out whilst baking, and the loaf rises to fill the rectangular shape giving you the perfect slice every time.


The Menhir Sarrasin - A Breton Buckwheat loaf

The Menhir Sarrasin - A Breton Buckwheat loaf

Russet red-brown buckwheat loaf made distinctive by the addition of roast buckwheat flour. Bake a dozen and you could build your own Stonehenge. Or Breadhenge. The menhir (standing stone) shape is easily made before the final proof. I love it when your own take on a bread is the latest addition to a chain that extends back into the mists of time. In this case, I was inspired by the Farine blog (http://www.farine-mc.com/2015/05/meet-baker-eric-marche.html) article about Breton-based baker Éric Marché. In the blogpost MC writes about how M.Marché roasts a small percentage of the buckwheat flour in his menhir-shaped loaves. I’ve never been a huge fan of buckwheat bread, but this sounded worth a try. It was. It’s a great idea. Delicious. This is my version of Éric Marché's loaf, using, as a template, Dan Leader’s Buckwheat Bâtard recipe which, apparently, he adapted, in turn, from an Éric Kayser recipe. Anyway, I hope I've done them justice. Alternatively, substitute half the strong bread flour for wholemeal and you'll get a darker loaf more akin to M.Marché's original. Great with cheese or cured meats.
