French Bread ..  Gluten free

French Bread .. Gluten free 

- makes two loaves in under an hour

----- Recipe ------

2 T. yeast [2 envelopes Fleischmann's]
1 T. sugar
1 1/4 c. warm water

(mix in glass container like Pyrex pitcher until it gets bubbly)

2 c. GF all-purpose flour
1 c. cornstarch (it calls for tapioca, but didn't have any)
1/4 c. dry milk powder
2 tsp. xanthan gum
1 1/2 tsp. salt

(put flour mixture in large bowl and stir well)

1 T. room temp. butter
2 whole eggs & one yolk [ save the white for egg wash ]
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

(mix this together)

Now, in the large bowl containing GF flour mixture, add yeast mixture.
Next, add egg mixture.

Beat all until combined ... it will start to get sticky-soft.

On a greased cookie sheet (large), spoon bread dough into 2 loaves. If really sticky (mine was), put water on hands to form loaves. Brush with the egg white you saved -- all nice and beaten foamy! Cut slits across the bread.

Put into a COLD oven. Set temp. to 425 deg. and bake for 30-35 min.

IF it starts to brown too much, cover with aluminum foil.

Remove to a rack to cool ...

Says 10 min. ..... well, it smells too darn good to let it sit there!

Pull off a hunk .. add butter or dip in Olive oil w/herbs!

Ah, pure heaven !!

( this recipe is based on what Sonja Stewart posted on her site; it is not exactly the same )

oh gee sorry, it's lunch here and I licked the monitor! I am a bread freak! I try and stay away from gluten as I am diebetic... and it's kinda gross anyway. I don't use white flour at all if I can possibly avoid it.

My Deah, you can use any kind of Gluten Free flour in this one --- when I make it, whatever I have is what goes into the bread.
Understand "bread freak" --- so, when I discovered this recipe, a light bulb went off ! Aha~ now, all I need is a fluffy biscuit G.F. recipe ~

I have a great biscuit recipe and I bet it would be good with coconut flour! Sorry it happens to be at my other house. I will do my best to remember to get it next time I go out.
