Makes a 400g round loaf

 

Ingredients

385g gluten free plain flour

50g dried milk powder

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 egg

300ml buttermilk

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 230˚C and lightly flour a baking sheet.
  2. Put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the egg and buttermilk together and pour into the well.
  4. Knead the ingredients together for two minutes, using one hand, until the dough comes together.
  5. Carefully pick the dough up and transfer it to the lightly floured baking sheet. Shape into a circle, about 4cm thick. Cut a deep cross in the dough and bake for 5 minutes.
  6. Turn the oven down to 180˚C, then bake for another 25 minutes, until the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when carefully tapped.
  7. Allow to cool before serving.
