Tips for Making Successful Gluten Free Bread Recipes
- Start with a good quality gluten free flour. I love Better Batter Gluten Free Flour, mostly because it performs well in any recipe from cookies to yeast breads. It yields a great texture and is corn free, too. For yeast breads, I also recommend GF Jules. Because all gluten free flours perform differently, your results will vary depending on which you choose to use.
- Expect sticky dough. Gluten free flours absorb more moisture than wheat flour, which means your baked goods will dry out easily. The way to combat this is to start with less flour than a traditional recipe, and end with a dough that is too sticky to knead or work with by hand. Before you panic, there are tricks to working with the dough! When making gluten free bread recipes you can spoon the thick, sticky batter into prepared pans OR coat your hands and working surface in oil or a gluten free starch/flour. I share more info on this in the recipes below. Although the dough will start out looking much too wet, it will bake into a beautiful loaf of bread!
- No need for a second rise. All gluten free bread recipes need only 1 rise. So you’ll mix up the dough, get it into the pan(s), let it rise once, and bake it. Your breads/rolls will actually hold their rise best when you skip the second rise.
