Rose's Food Product
1 cup Sorghum Flour
1.5 cup Potato Starch
.5 tapioca starch
1.5 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
1 teaspoon Guar Gum (or Xanthan)
1.5 tablespoon instant/bread machine yeast
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
3 Large Egg Whites
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1 cup Warm Water (105-115F)
Some people, including me, have a sensitivity to wheat and/or gluten, which causes us to have reactions from eating to much of either. This sucks because bread is one of my favorite foods, so I decided to find a recipe without wheat that I could eat that is as good as a recipe with wheat.
1. In the bowl of your mixer, combine the dry ingredients
2. Add the Olive Oil and Egg Whites and mix to incorporate
3. Add the remaining Vinegar and most of the Water. Beat for 2 minutes, adding the remaining Water if needed to make a soft dough
4. Spoon the dough onto the pan and carefully shape with a spatula. Because the dough is soft, it will go through the small holes in the pan. Don’t press hard when shaping.
5. If you like, you can brush the top with beaten egg white.
6. Use a sharp knife to cut several slits in the top of each loaf.
7. Place the pan in a cold oven on a middle rack. Turn the oven on to 425 degrees and begin timing for 30 – 35 minutes.
8. Cool the loaves on a wire wrack before slicing.
√1 cup hazelnuts, skinned
3/4 cup chocolate chips (for gluten and dairy
