Gram Flour Bread Machine Flour.
So...I'm no expert on this stuff, but I think it's lower GI and contains more protein.
I found the recipe somewhere on the internet and emailed the text of it to myself, so sorry to the author who I can't credit.
This is not my work, but it's light and fluffy and toasts really well.
It makes a 1.5 lb loaf.
- 1 1/8 cup Chickpea Flour (Weird measure, eh? 1/8 of a cup is 2 tablespoons) or 160g
- 1 cup cornstarch or 130g
- 1 cup + 1 Tbs.Tapioca Flour (Another weird measure, go figure) 150g
- 3 1/2 tsp. Xanthan Gumor or Guar Gum (I used Xanthan Gum) 10g
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt - 6g
- 3 Tbs. brown sugar - 45g
- 1/4 tsp. Ascorbic Acid (I had none :-(, but I'll try it with it next time)
- 1 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds
- 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 1/8 cup warm water
- 3 Tbs. vegetable oil
- 2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
- Combine first seven ingredients.
- Mix together, eggs, water, and oil.
- In a large capacity bread machine add dry ingredients, liquids and yeast in order recommended by manufacturer.
- Bake using white bread setting and medium crust or your specific gluten-free program. (I used medium crust setting and found it a bit hard, I'll try light next)
By Hand (I never succeed by hand, haven't tried this). Beat together, dry ingredients, liquids and yeast. Transfer to a lightly oiled 9-x-5-inch loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise to the top of the pan. Bake 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan and let cool on a wire rack.
