Gluten Free Glorious Bread Recipe! It is so yummy!
We have dropped bread for several years and I get a real craving, not to mention a challenge for Friday evenings! Generally, we make the GAPS flat bread with zucchini, egg, and peanut butter. This is a tasty bread, but for our special Friday evening meal it does not “feel” like bread.
A year and a half ago, I bought a long-awaited bread maker.

I was so bummed that the box and the bread maker that I have wanted for quite a while, went up into the closet!
One day, I just happened to look at the box. It was so missed that I decided to make some bread for the rest of us. When I opened the box and looked at the manual, there was a whole two pages filled with variations on a basic gluten free bread recipe. Imagine my joy! I made the bread with very little expectation. Thinking it would be the usual dense but tasty bread.
To my surprise, this gluten free bread recipe is amazing! It is fluffy, light, delicious, and pretty. All the components we desire for Friday night.
Every recipe in this book calls for rice flour, but my son can’t have rice. So I cross my fingers and modify this gluten free bread recipe: (Fortunately, it works!)
Cafe Au Lait Gluten Free Bread Recipe
1-1/2 cup Milk
3 Large Eggs beaten
1 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
3 Tbsp. Raw local honey
1-1/2 cup Almond flour (soaked and ground)
1 tsp arrowroot
2-1/3 tapioca starch or Potato Starch
1 Tbsp Xanthan Gum
1-1/2 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp very concentrated organic coffee (1 cup of water for 2 Tbsp brewed coffee/expresso)
1 Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
Put the ingredients in the bread maker in the order above. Make a little well for the yeast and pour it in. Turn on the bread maker. I chose medium crust, but let it sit for 30 minutes in the warmer to ensure the tapioca is not gooey. [smile] Then you select the Gluten free option!
The easiest and best bread ever! So good that my children did not want me to share this with you (which I can’t figure that out!). I told them I would still make it for them and maybe other people would get this and then when we visit, they would have this yummy gluten free bread recipe there too! That seems to make it OK to share with you!
