Dan Lepard gluten-free bread recipe

Hi everyone


The topic of gluten-free bread comes up regularly on this forum, and I happened to stumble upon this recipe from Dan Lepard on the Guardian UK website:

Seems like he uses a combination of soya flour, potato starch, cornflour, psyllium husk powder and xanthan gum in place of wheat flour.


Though it may be useful for those with wheat allergies out there.

Ed,


I've been looking and looking.  Most gluten free breads taste like sawdust.  I'll definitely give this one a try, although the husk powder might be a challenge to find.  If Dan Lepard says it works, it works.  Thanks.

Nowadays, psyllium husk powder is very affordable at any health food store and even most grocery stores. Getting the store brand, you'll pay around $5 per container. Great fiber to take daily to clean out your own bodily systems.  :)
