This morning I decided to make a loaf of GF soda bread. I found the recipe on a Thermomix website (details are at the bottom of my blog). I have been trying to make a sourdough starter which has been a disaster so I tried this one this morning. It has a different taste but I popped some butter and jam on it and it was lovely.
Gluten free Soda Bread
230 g brown rice
100 g dried chickpeas
100 g arrowroot or tapioca starch
2 tsp baking soda
3.5 tsp GF baking powder
2 tsp celtic sea salt
2 tsp xanthan gum
310 g whole milk
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
4 large eggs
80 g rice bran oil
40 g maple syrup (real)
Pre heat oven to 190ºC or 180ºC fan forced.
Line heavy bread tin 26.5 x 10.5 x 10.5 cm with baking paper.
Place rice and chickpeas into TM bowl and mill for 1 min on speed 9. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix for 6 seconds on speed 6.
Add wet ingredients and mix for a maximum of 15 seconds on speed 6.
Transfer the thick batter to lined bread tin, spread it out evenly with a spatula, then bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until a skewer remains clean after insertion in the loaf. Immediately remove loaf from bread tin and baking paper. Wrap in a clean tea towel then leave in an upright position to cool on a rack. The loaf can be sliced up with an electric bread knife, frozen whole (preferably in a large ziplock bag to minimize ice crystals) then individual slices removed from the loaf and thawed as required.
Use white sugar
Milk can be soy, rice or A2
substitute vinegar for citric ‘lemon’ juice (use 2 tsp of 1/3 tsp citric acid dissolved in 2 Tbsp warm water)
oil e.g. rice bran oil or sunflower (Crisco) which don’t contain unlisted antioxidants
This recipe is from The Recipe Community a Thermomix website. It has the name of the lady who posted on the site also.
