How to Make Gluten Free French Bread .. in under an hour!

Step-by-Step

  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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Remove to a rack to cool ...

    Says 10 min.to 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!
