Online Shop closed until further notice

Due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in the UK we have taken the decision to temporally close our online shop effective immediately, 30th March 2020. Until now our shop has remained available, but the orders we have been receiving have been significantly lower than normal.

While we are just a small, home business between myself and my fiancé, we have decided to take this decision now in the hope that we can help to remove some of the unnecessary work put into the postal service here in the UK and around the world.

We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible when the situation begins to return to normal. We hope all our customers, both old and new remain safe in this worrying time.

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.

500g gluten free strong white bread flour
1tsp xanthan gum
10g yeast
1tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2tsp cyder vinegar
350ml warm water
2tsp oil

Preparation Time: 1 Hour 20 Mins
Cooking Time: 45 Mins
This recipe makes 10 slices

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.

Hi Chris, we use dried in this recipe.

Your recipe has gluten free strong white bread flour in it...can you tell us which flour (brand etc) you have used and what makes it "strong"

Hi Prakash, we used Doves Farm White Bread Flour, they don't actually state Strong White on it as I thought they did, so any gluten free white bread flour should do the trick!
