Emb-Ark-ing on a journey with Noah's Bread


Ok, so this is a recipe that's knocking about all over the place, but I only just tried it yesterday. The results were disappointing. The bread came out small and lumpy. The amazing thing is, Conor ate the whole damn thing.

I made another batch tonight and it came out better. You really need to mix in the sparkling water proprely, even though you're supposed to work quickly. Quite a quandry.

Anyway, here it is. It's all over the place in various forms and with slight variations. This one works for me.

Original Noah's Bread (all credit to

from Kwan
This is the original version of Noah's Bread, developed by Kwan for her son Noah when she couldn't find any bread he could eat.

1/2 cup sorghum fl.
2/3 cup tapioca flour
1/3 cup potato starch
2 tsp xanthan gum
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup CF milk
1/3 cup sparkling water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees farenheit, 200 centigrade

Mix all ingredients well, except the sparkling water. Once the batter is well mixed, add the sparkling water to make the batter rise.

Work quickly and form batter into buns, bagels, roll, etc. I use hamburger form pans and rings from the Gluten Free Pantry but you can also use aluminum foil to make form rings. I also put the batter into large ziplock bags, cut a corner, and squeeze out the appropriate shape of whatever I'm trying to make, such as bagels.

The batter should be thick and look somewhat lumpy. Don't use too much batter or form too high. The bread will puff and rise and settle back down once cooled.

Bake for 20-25 min until the crust is golden brown.
The crust will be hard out of the oven but will soften once cooled.

They freeze and thaw really well.
