Sorghum Bread Recipe

I'm working on coming up with a bread recipe that I can make from scratch, that looks good, tastes good, is healthy, and stays soft. This comes pretty close. It is not a very tall loaf and wasn't very rounded on top. It's more of a hearty type bread. I saved a piece to in a baggie to keep on the counter overnight and found that it was still soft the next day.

Sorghum Bread

1 1/2 c. sorghum flour
1 c. tapioca starch
1/2 c. brown sweet rice flour
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. guar gum
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tb. sugar
2 1/4 tsp. instant yeast

3 eggs (room temperature, lightly beaten)
1/4 c. oil
1 1/2 tsp. vinegar
3/4 - 1 c. milk (105 - 115 degrees)

I made this in the bread machine, but you could adapt it to make it by hand.

Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Put the wet ingredients into the bread pan, then add the dry ingredients on top. Set your maching to the gluten-free setting.

I customized my gluten-free setting to the following times.

  • Knead 15 min.
  • Rise 30 min.

My name is David and I'm a Coeliac/Celiac.
I like the look of the bread, I'm a self taught baker from 'scratch' and have devised my own recipes for bread and cakes.
I don't use a bread maker, all my baking is done in the oven.
Baking to me is a 'Art' and baking GF is a mostly unforgiving Art, in so far as recipes must be nearly exact.
I have only so far used the following flours, brown rice, ground rice (like cream of rice), cornflour/starch, tapioca flour/starch, Gram flour (Besan, Chickpea), Buckwheat, Polenta, ground almonds/meal.
Considering I don't have the range of GF flours at my disposal, that you do, I think I've done pretty good, all things considered.
Best Regards,
Hi David. Thanks for visiting and commenting. It sounds like you have done well, and your site is a wealth of information. I tried to leave a comment, but I don't have an ID.
Thanks for the visit, while the MSN Web Space is ok,
I am in the process of copying all the information and recipes to my new Blog it makes access much easier and tags make everything so much easier to find.

Best Regards,
made this today and mine didnt come out as toasted looking... But it is light and looks like it would taste good! lol
