Gluten Free WholeGrain Baking Fun


A while back, my friend Marie gave me the most delectable jars of homemade Quince Jelly. Any excuse is good for making some homemade bread, so I set out to provide a delivery-device for this lovely jelly.  This earthy bread made good use of the quinoa flakes in my pantry and provided the perfect partner for this rare treat.

Whole-Grain Bread with Quinoa Flakes 
(makes 2 small loaves)

 This is a variation on one of my favorite breads. I love exploring new ways of incorporating more wholesome ingredients into my recipes and this one is a winner. It will taste wonderful straight out of the oven with some good salty Irish butter and your favorite jam. Slice and freeze the rest for later use.

1 cup bob's red mill GF mix (or other brand)
1/2 cup teff flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
1 tsp salt
2 tsp xantham gum
1 tbspn GF dry yeast

2 cups room temperature water
1 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup egg white beaten

  • Mix together in a mixer the dry ingredients.
  • In a bowl mix the wet ingredients
  • Combine the wet into the dry ingredients and mix on medium speed for 3 minutes (scraping the sides if necessary)
  • Cover the bowl with a clean towel and Let rise for 45 minutes
  • Oil two 3" x 8" loaf pans
  • Transfer batter to the two loaf pans and cover again with the towel
  • Let rise while the oven preheats to 375F
  • Bake for 50 minutes
  • Unmold and let cool on a rack.

Alexa, that lovely homemade bread, homemade jelly and butter would qualify as dinner, in my eyes.

The bread looks and sounds so wholesome and delicious!

Well, since I can't sleep, I might as well Google 'Teff Flour.'

Done with amaranth? What comes next? I cast my vote for dark chocolate.
