THERMOMIX ® RECIPE
- 70 g buckwheat kernals
- 80 g white quinoa or millet
- 60 g chia seeds
- 170 g arrowroot or tapioca starch
- 1 tsp (heaped) instant yeast
- 1 tsp xanthum gum
- 1/2 tsp bicarb soda (baking soda)
- 1 tsp fine sea salt
- 30 g macadamia oil, or olive oil
- 30 g raw honey or rice malt syrup
- 250 g water, at room temperature
Place ingredients into mixing bowl and mill 1 min/speed 9. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.
Add dry ingredients and mix 10 sec/speed 6.
Add wet ingredients and mix 10 sec/speed 6, or until dough comes together. (It will be a very thick, sticky dough)
If you like, you can sprinkle the loaf with a little water and use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface. Cover loosely with a plastic bag (so it doesn't touch the dough) and leave to rise for at least an hour, or until dough rises approx. 2cm. (It won't rise as high as gluten bread, but the texture will be lovely.)
Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Place bread in oven and cook for an hour, or until nicely browned. Turn out of bread tin and check underneath the loaf to make sure it's browned all over. If not, cook for another 5 to 10 minutes upside down, to brown underneath. Allow to cool on a rack before slicing.
If you'd like to prepare the dough ahead to cook later, place the covered dough in the fridge and leave to rise for at least 3 hours, or even overnight. When ready to bake, uncover and place into cold oven and turn oven on to 170C. Bake for an hour or so, until loaf is browned all over. (Turn over to bake underneath if needed.)I've been playing with different variations of gluten free breads for a while now, trying to figure out one that works well without eggs. I've finally found one! I got some ideas from different recipes, and after some tweaking I came up with this bread, which is made from ground up chia seeds, buckwheat and quinoa, along with tapioca or arrowroot starch and xanthum gum. It's simple, not too expensive, and tastes great! The texture isn't crumbly at all - the chia seeds and xanthum gum work really well to make it soft and pliable. I know someone's going to ask me if this can be made without yeast - I haven't tried that yet, but it may work with baking powder instead of yeast... If you try it, let me know how it goes. The secret to getting the texture right on this bread is to cook it for long enough that it's not still sticky inside. The crust will get quite brown - don't worry, it won't dry out. It needs to rise for an hour and cook for an hour, maybe even a little more. You can make two loaves at once by grinding the dry ingredients in two lots, removing the first lot to a bowl, and mixing the two loaves separately. The dough is very thick and sticky, so it's a bit too much to do two loaves at once. Because it's a moist bread, it lasts really well for a couple of days. Great for sandwiches, or toast. Add in a couple of handfuls of seeds towards the end of the kneading time if you want a seeded bread.
