French…… bread?

Okay so I don’t know if you can call it french bread but it is similar and easy! I would imagine this would make great crutons, garlic bread or even stuffing. My kids and my husband both LOVED this, especially the kids since fresh bread isn’t something they get often.

This recipe comes from the Gluten free gourmet Cooks fast and healthy.

So to start you need to make a gluten-free flour mix of:  2 parts white rice flour, 2/3 parts potato starch, 1/3 part tapioca starch  (eg:3 cups rice flour, 1 cup potato starch, 1/2 cup tapioca starch).Of that you will need 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons for this bread.

2 cups plus 2 tbs of GF flour mix

2 1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1 1/2 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

2 tsp quick rise yeast

1 tsp vinegar

2 egg whites (room temp)

1 1/2 cups warm water

grease your bread pan. preheat oven to 400.

In a bowl combine flour, xanthan gum, sugar, salt, and yeast . Add vinegar, egg whites and water. Beat at medium with a hand-held mixer for 3 minutes. spoon dough into bread pan ans smooth top. (though I did this and it still formed a strange shape). cover let rise for 15 minutes (mine didn’t rise till it went in the oven). place in oven for an hour then reduce to 350, the original recipe says 15 min but my bread was under cooked so I suggest 30 minutes. (Do Not poke it or touch it while it is cooking because it will be a crust with a hollow center).
