Today I want to share a recipe with you for yeast free gluten free bread. That’s because if you live in the UK at least, you’ll be having difficulty getting hold of yeast.
Since launching my gluten free bread mix a few weeks ago life has changed rather dramatically. And I’m finding many of my lovely customers are unable to try out their bread mix because they can’t get yeast.
I therefore promised to devise a way around this, and this easy gluten free soda bread is the answer.
I will be working on dairy and egg free versions so watch this space.
What will I need to make yeast free gluten free bread?
Firstly you’ll need a packet of my gluten free bread mix.
The mix has taken over ten years to develop. In fact ever since I gave up eating wheat, I’ve been trying to make a decent, tasty loaf of gluten free bread.
I finally cracked it last year and that, combined with my new life free from self imposed limits, I brought it to market last month.
However, it was designed to have yeast added to it to create the perfect loaf. And in our current situation there appears to be a shortage of yeast. Hence this creation of a yeast free gluten free bread!
In addition to my gluten free bread mix you’ll need sugar, lemon juice (I’m sure vinegar would work too if needed), bicarbonate of soda, milk and an egg.
How do I make this gluten free soda bread?
Pour the milk into a large jug and add the lemon juice and egg. Whisk lightly together with a fork then pour that into the dry mix.
Simply stir the ingredients together until smooth then leave to rest for 5 minutes.
How do I shape the bread?
The dough is pretty sticky so to shape it you need some extra gluten free flour.
Scatter the flour into a baking tray then empty the dough onto the tray.
Then scatter the dough with more flour and gently bring the dough into a ball shape by turning the dough in the flour.
Using a sharp knife, finish by cutting a cross shape on the top that is approx. 1cm deep.
All that’s left to do is to bake the bread. So simple, yet so tasty!
Is making bread good for my mental health?
I would say so.
Because in these ever changing times, making bread brings you back into the Now. Into the only thing that we know to be true. After all the future is just a story created out of thought. As is the past.
Therefore any activity that connects you back into the present moment is helpful.
When you are in the present moment there is no thought. No thought about what might be, or what might happen.
And in that space there is just peace. And all of us could do with that right now.
