How To Make gluten free french bread .. in under an hour!

  • 1
    Mix the yeast/sugar/water in a glass container to proof.
  • 2
    Put flour, cornstarch, dry milk powder, salt & xanthan mixture in large bowl and stir by hand.
  • 3
    In another bowl, mix whole eggs [save white per ingredients]/cider vinegar/butter.
  • 4
    Now, in the large bowl containing Gluten Free flour mixture, add yeast mixture. Next, add egg mixture. Beat all until combined ... it will start to get sticky-soft. Do by hand -- this crawls up the beaters with a hand-mixer.

    On a greased cookie sheet (large), spoon bread dough into 2 loaves. If really sticky (mine was), put water on hands to form loaves. Brush with the egg white you saved -- all nice and beaten foamy! Cut slits across the bread. Optional - sprinkle with Sesame Seeds

    Put into a COLD oven. Set temp. to 425 deg.F and bake for 30-35 min. IF it starts to brown too much, cover with foil.

    Remove to a rack to cool ... Says 10 cool ..... well, it smells too darn good to let it sit there! Pull off a hunk .. add butter or dip in Olive oil w/herbs!
