Quinoa Flour Bread Recipe
- ½ cup quinoa flour
- ¼ cup teff flour
- ¼ cup bean flour
- ½ cup potato starch flour
- 2 tsp gluten free baking powder
- ½ cup milk
- 1 egg
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 2 tsp xanthum gum
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
Step 1: Preparing Dry Ingredients
There are four kinds of flour used in this bread recipe. Once needs to sieve all these flours, one at a time into a large mixing bowl. Then, using the same sieve, sieve the baking powder and xanthum gum into the flour mix. Now, add sugar.
Step 2: Preparing Wet Ingredients
In another bowl, break open the egg and beat it slightly. Add milk and vegetable oil to the beaten egg and whisk thoroughly. Avoid using an electric beater, because it tends to over-beat the mixture.
Step 3: Combining Wet and Dry and Baking
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until the mixture is combined properly. Once the thick batter is formed, dollop out the mixture on an ungreased baking tray and bake the mixture at 180 degrees centigrade for 20 – 25 minutes. The bread will puff up and appear nice and brown. Leave the bread rolls to cool off on wire racks.
