My friend Dean follows a gluten free diet and likes to experiment in the kitchen. I bought him a couple of cook books and I’ve been following his results, they all look fab! He asked me for a soda bread recipe so I changed one I had to use Gluten Free flour and this is the result. It looks amazing and Dean says it tastes great too!
You will need:
- 350g gluten free white bread flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 290ml buttermilk
- 4 tablespoons milk
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Lightly flour a baking tray or use a non-stick sheet.
Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl and combine with a wooden spoon. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the milk and buttermilk, mixing quickly to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a short while. Form into a round and flatten the dough a little, place on the tray and slash a cross on the top to allow for expansion.
Bake for about 30 minutes and make sure the base sounds hollow when tapped. Cool on a wire rack.
