Ingredients

  • Flours: brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, and sorghum flour. This bread also takes corn and tapioca starch.
  • Baking soda: this bread takes baking soda as leaving agent in replacement of baking powder. The baking soda reacts with the buttermilk.
  • Buttermilk: is another characteristic ingredient of the bread. Its leaving comes from baking soda and buttermilk.
  • Xantham gum: to bind the ingredients together in addition to the eggs.
  • Egg: room temperature egg is better.
  • Sugar: I used muscovado sugar. You can also use white granulated sugar or brown sugar.

How to make gluten-free brown bread

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F.

Lightly grease a baking sheet, baking pan, or cast-iron skillet. I use a 9-inch cake pan.

Whisk the buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, sorghum flour, corn starch, tapioca starch, xantham gum, baking soda, and sugar in a large bowl. Set aside.

In a small/medium bowl, mix the egg and the buttermilk with a hand whisk.

Stir the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated. The dough is a bit sticky.

Place the dough into the prepared pan.

If you want you can make a cross on the top of the bread with the blunt of a knife. I haven’t done it.

Bake for 50 minutes or until a firm crust has formed.

Place the bread into a wire rack to cool.

Variations

You can try different gluten-free flours, I think this mix of flours works for me. You can also add some dried fruits or raisings.

The classic soda bread takes a cross on the top, I didn’t make it. Feel free to score a cross on the top of the bread.

Storing

Store the bread covered at room temperature for 3 days or in the fridge for a week. You can also freeze it. I suggest slicing it before freezing so you don’t have to unfreeze the entire loaf.
