Breadmaker

  • 450ml luke warm water
  • 4 Tbsp (60ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ tsp active dry gluten free yeast
  • 500g* (approx. 3 cups) Healtheries Gluten Free Bread Mix

*500g of Bread Mix, straight from the pack is approximately 3 cups. However, for best results we strongly recommend weighing the bread mix. Another way to get an accurate 500g is to pour the whole pack into a measuring jug, then use half the volume for 1 loaf.

Method

Oven Baked Load

  1. Mix water and yeast together until softened (may take a few minutes).
  2. Add the Bread Mix and oil, and mix until smooth.
  3. Put into a greased loaf pan (approx. 24x13x7cm deep)
  4. Place pan inside a loose, sealed plastic bag, and allow the mixture to rise in a warm place for about 40 minutes. The dough is ready to bake when touching the surface leaves an indentation.
  5. Preheat oven to 2000C, or 1700C for a fan bake oven.
  6. Place a bowl with 2 cups of water on a rack on the bottom of the oven. This prevents the bread surface from drying out.
  7. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Once the loaf is baked, remove it from the pan and cool before slicing.

Breadmaker Loaf

  1. Add all ingredients to bread maker following recommendations in your bread maker manual.
  2. To produce better results select a long cycle program.
  3. Once the loaf is baked, remove it from the pan and cool before slicing.

Bread Making Tips:

  • Allowing the yeast to soften in water for ~10mins helps the loaf to rise
  • These recipes are dairy free, however the texture and flavour of wheat- and gluten-free breads generally improves if you add extra protein. You can use an egg as part of the liquid content – just whisk the egg and add in water to the required volume. If dairy is not an issue, you can also use milk (or milk made up with milk powder) as part of the water measure. Grated cheese (1/2 cup) is another way to add protein.
  • Adding extra sugar or honey gives a lighter textured loaf; try adding 1 tsp to the yeast-water mixture at the start. For the “Oven Baked” recipe, however, this reduces raising and baking times, so please check!
  • Oil (or melted butter) in the recipe softens the bread’s crust
  • If you add extra salt, never allow it to come into direct contact with the yeast as this will deactivate it.
  • Gluten free bread tends to dry out quicker than other breads so can be frozen and thawed if not consumed within one or two days.

Serving Suggestions

Serve your warm bread with your favourite berry jam or fill with fresh salad and lean meat for a nutritious sandwich
