Using a thermometer will help you with controlling proofing times. For accurate dough temperature readings try this thermometer from Gdealer. Aim for dough temperature between 25C and 30C (77-86F).

What if I don’t have a baking stone?

A baking stone conducts heat into the loaf. Using one increases the height of the oven spring and helps to give an even bake on the base of the loaf. Gluten free bread will work without a baking stone, but you will get a slightly bigger rise in the oven if you choose to use one. If you don’t have a baking stone, preheat the thickest baking sheet that you have.

Can I use a dutch oven to make this recipe?

Yes, if you would rather use a dutch oven to make this gluten free loaf. Simply preheat the dutch oven and drop the baking tins inside to bake. If you are looking to get a dutch oven, I recommend getting this one from Challenger.

Ingredients 

  • 350g  White gluten free bread flour
  • 360g  Warm Water
  • 8.5g  Fresh yeast (4g active dried)
  • 7g  Salt 
  • 7g  Caster sugar 
  • 7g  Vegetable oil

Using instant or active dried yeast to make this recipe

If using instant yeast, divide the amount of fresh yeast used by 3 and follow the same method as the recipe.

Active dried yeast needs to be activated before use. In this case, add the dried yeast and a teaspoon of sugar to the water, whisk and leave for 10 minutes to bloom. Add the yeasty water to the recipe when required.

How to make gluten free bread

1) Preheat the oven

Preheat oven with baking stone at 230C (440F). Grease 2 small bread tins (or 1 large) with vegetable oil.

2) Prepare the ingredients

Mix hot water from the kettle and cold tap water to make a water temperature of 38C (100F) before weighing. Weigh the remaining ingredients.

3) Add the ingredients

Add the salt, sugar and yeast to the water and whisk until no lumps. 

4) Mix!

Then add the flour and the oil and combine with a wooden spoon. Beat until no lumps remain. Use a whisk if you need to remove some of the lumps.

5) Pour

Pour the mixture into the greased bread tins and place in a warm place.

When filling the mixture into the tins for the most accurate size weigh the tins on the scales and check both tins are the same weight.

6) Proof the bread

Leave to rise for 1-2 hours. 

7) Bake!

It is ready when the dough has doubled in size and reached the top of the tins. Lightly dust some extra gluten free flour on top and bake for 25-30 minutes. If the top is still pale after 20 minutes, turn the top heat on or use the broiler.

This bread dough has more of a batter consistency than a typical bread dough. Baking it fast by using top heat will retain moisture in the bread, making a soft and spongy crumb.

8) Cool

Once a golden colour is achieved, remove from the oven and tip the bread out onto a cooling rack and cool for at least an hour.
