Homemade gluten free bread ingredients
3 ⅓ cups gluten-free flour mix for bread or focaccia, ⅔ cups buckwheat flour, 3 ½ glasses of water, 1/2 cube of brewer’s yeast, a pinch of sugar, a pinch of salt, corn flour for flouring, 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
How to make gluten free bread
If you have a planetary mixer, use it at medium speed, otherwise you can knead by hand. The only drawback is that the dough will remain sticky and more difficult to handle than when made with wheat flour. Place the flour in planetary mixer bowl, add the yeast dissolved in a little water with the sugar, followed by the rest of the water and start kneading with the hook. Add the oil and salt. Knead until the mixture is homogeneous. At this point leave it in the bowl, cover it with a damp cloth and put it in a dark, dry place to rise for an hour. After this time, take it out of the bowl and knead it for a few minutes on a surface covered with corn flour. Place the dough on a baking tray covered with baking paper, make cuts on the surface with lines, cover it with the cloth and let it rise for another three hours in the oven turned off, but preheated to 200° with a bowl of water inside. After the three hours, remove the dough, turn on the oven and when it has reached the temperature of 400° bake the bread and let it bake for an hour, checking that the surface is nicely browned before removing it. Once cooked, take it out of the oven and let it cool on a cooling tray without touching it. Your bread is ready!
