- 450g Free From Fairy plain flour blend.
- 1.5 tsp Xanthan gum
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tbsp dried yeast
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp table salt
- 360ml water (180 tap cold, 180 just boiled)
- 60ml rapeseed oil
- 10ml balsamic vinegar.
- 2 large egg. (I have used flax “egg” in the past with other brands but not tested with this blend yet, but can’t see why it wouldn't work.)
- 25g pumpkin seeds
- 25g sunflower seeds
- a sprinkling of suitable gluten free oats added after the kneading cycle.
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
- Measure out the liquids into a jug, and whisk well.
- Get the bread pan from the machine.
- I never prep with the pan inside the machine so the inside stays clean.
- Add the liquid to the pan (don’t forget the kneading blade)
- then add the dry ingredients on top.
- Place the pan in the machine and start on program 12 dark crust setting.
- At this point you may want to set a timer for 20 minutes if you wish to remove the kneading blade after the knead cycle has finished.
- Also to sprinkle the optional oat.
- A couple of minutes in scrape off excess from pan edges into the dough and close the lid.
- At the end of the knead cycle if you want to remove the blade.
- Separate the dough around the blade and pull out gently.
- It can be messy!
- I have found it makes a better loaf though. since you don't have to worry about removing the blade after.
- Now level the dough off again with a wet hand, sprinkle any oats if so desired, don't forget to close the lid.
- At this point the timer should be about 1 hour 32 minutes left.
- Once the loaf is cooked. tip the loaf on a wire rack (Don’t forget to place upright) and leave to cool for at least 15 minutes.
- Ideally till it has cooled completely. but if you are too excited to wait. that length of time should do if you slice into it carefully.
- A note on the oats. they will sink in a bit, but not too much.
- The bread freezes very well indeed once completely cooled. but slice it first.

- Mandy, owner of Born To Bake (gluten-free bakery) – “I’ve finally got round to using the flour and made gingerbread. I found the mix very light and loose when I mixed it, I put it in the fridge and chilled for 20 mins and then rolled it out, it was really easy to work with and baked well. I’m pleased with the results and would be interested to see how it worked for pastry as I find using plain flour can make the pastry very heavy in texture.”
