GF Pumpernickel Bread

My husband loves Caraway Seeds and Molasses so he gave a Thumbs Up for this GF Pumpernickel Bread.  Crusty on the outside, soft on the inside and not crumbly like most gluten-free breads.  I don’t have to use a knife or turn my toaster upside down to remove my slice intact.

Note:  The original Nature’s Fairy Recipe uses 3 Tsp of Yeast.  But if you live in higher altitudes, try 2 Tsp and don’t  “Set It and Forget It!”. Definitely don’t leave the house until you’ve safely made it past the proofing cycle, especially if you’re using a Bread Machine.  This picture shows bread made in a 9×5″ loaf pan minus a bit of batter that I lost on the bottom of the oven during proofing !

GF DF Whole Grain Bread from Kim’s Kitchen

Upon surfing YouTube, I stumbled across this “Gluten Free Bread Recipe – The BEST you’ll ever taste”.  No matter how many new recipes I try or how many store-bought loaves I buy, this is still my favourite ! Watch the video or just click on “About” to see the original recipe. If you agree you can subscribe to her channel, “Einekleinewitch“.

I don’t fuss over it as much as Kim does. Just Set It & Forget It ! Fresh, tasty bread in 2 hours on the Rapid Bake – Light Crust cycle ! You’re supposed to let it cool on a rack for an hour but FAT CHANCE that’s gonna happen ! It’s great toasted with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil spread on top and excellent for sandwiches as it slices so well.

I discovered 2 other versions that Kim’s Kitchen published on her GF Real Food Blog. One is the ‘simplified’ version with fewer ingredients. The other offers up various substitution ideas. Note: I use the original recipe but omit the Quinoa Flour. I love Quinoa in Tabbouleh Salads but Quinoa Flour is bitter, even in small quantities. I substitute Quinoa Flour with Teff Flour or one of 3 flour blends.

Print my PDF to see all 3 versions of GF DF Whole Grain Bread from Kim’s Kitchen. It tastes so good, slices well and the Millet, Sorghum, Teff flours,  Coconut Milk & Oil offers high protein and fibre. Try it out and let me know what you think. If your FAVE is better than mine, you have to share !
