|Just look at this squishy white deliciousness!|
|Lookin' good - yum!|
But this tasty white bread is delicious! Completely worthy of taking on any regular gluten-laden sandwich bread on the market.
|This is the real deal folks :)|
And don't let the "Coconut" in the recipe fool you here - this bread has just the faintest taste of coconut. All you really taste her is lovely bread. Yummmm :)
GF DF Coconut White Bread
1 1/3 cups warm water
1 tsp. sugar
1 package instant dry yeast
3 large eggs, room temperature
1/4 cup oil (coconut oil - melted, or canola)
1 cup sorghum flour (or superfine brown rice flour)
1 1/2 cups tapioca starch (or flour)
1/2 cup corn starch
1 cup ground toasted coconut
2 tsp. xanthan gum
Grease bread pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 200 degrees, then turn oven off.
In bowl of stand mixer, combine water, sugar and yeast. Set aside until mixture foams.
Place flour, starches, coconut and xanthan gum in a large bowl and whisk to combine; set aside.
Add the eggs and oil to the mixer and blend on medium speed for 1 minute. On low, slowly add the flou mixture in four or five additions, letting it mix well after each addition. Once the dough begins to thicken, mix on high for 1 minute.
Place dough into prepared bread pan, smoothing top of dough. Sprinkle with extra ground coconut, if you like. Place in oven and let raise until top is just above edge of bread pan, about 30 minutes.
Remove bread from oven and let it preheat to 350 degrees. Bake 30 – 40 minutes until top is brown. Turn oven off and leave door open slightly. Let bread cool for about 30 minutes, then remove from oven. Let cool for another 30 minutes. *Makes: 1 loaf
