This hearty, gluten free sandwich bread recipe includes cinnamon and currants. It is outstanding for chicken salad or grilled cheese sandwiches – very similar to a whole wheat bread. This recipe was developed by Gf-Zing! , which celebrates flavor in the gluten free world.
In one bowl, mix and set aside:
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup extra light olive oil
1 1/4 cups very warm water
1 package fast-rising gluten-free yeast
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup dried currants
In a mixer bowl, combine:
1 cup white rice flour
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup rice bran
1/4 cup dark buckwheat flour (buckwheat is not wheat)
1/4 sweet brown rice flour or mochiko
1/2 cup potato starch (different from potato flour)
1/2 cup tapioca starch
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 Tablespoon xantham gum
1 Tablespoon gluten free cinnamon (it sounds like a lot, but 1 Tablespoon is correct)
3 Tablespoons white sugar
1 1/2 or 2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup buttermilk powder
Oven at 350. Grease a 9×5 loaf pan, and line the bottom with parchment paper and grease the paper.
Combine the mixtures from the two bowls. Mix well – the dough will become the consistency of a thick muffin batter. Dump it into the prepared pan, and smooth out the surface with a rubber spatula. Set the pan aside in a warm place until the dough is risen to the level of the top of the pan (doubled), which can take one and a half to two hours. Bake for 60-80 minutes until the bread reaches an internal temperature of 205-210 degrees. Allow to cool for 30 minutes in the pan, then remove to a rack and cool completely before slicing.
This bread can be sliced quite thinly (1/4-1/3 inch). When the loaf is completely cool, slice it and store the slices in bags in the freezer to be removed individually as needed for toast or sandwiches. The currants add a nice tangy flavor to chicken salad sandwiches or grilled cheese sandwiches.
Make sure all your ingredients are gluten free.
