Gluten Free White Bread

I dare not admit how long it took me to actually get a bread recipe to work, never mind getting a gluten free bread to work in the oven. This recipe is slightly heavier than a normal bread but not unpleasantly so, it is also Vegan. If it goes hard after 24 hours, warm in the microwave to help the softness return.

Tree Nuts


1. In a bowl mix together the flour, yeast, xanthan gum, sugar and salt.

2. Add in the water which should be warm to touch (too hot or cold and it will kill the yeast) along with the vinegar and oil. Mix with a spoon to form a thick dough which should be sticky but you should also be able to hold it in floured hands.

3. Form the dough into a roundish rectangle and place into a greased loaf tin. Cover with greased cling film and leave to prove for about an hour in a warm place, the loaf should roughly double in size.

4. Once proved, place in a pre heated oven on gas mark 6, for 40-45 mins until cooked and golden, best way to check if it is cooked is to flip it out of the tin and knock on the bottom, if it sounds hollow then it is done.

NB: we found it didn't go to hard, but if you find it does heat your slices for a few seconds in the microwave to soften.
