Ingredients:

Dry Ingredients:

OR

PLUS

Liquid Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs. honey, agave nectar or coconut palm nectar (optional)
  • 1 1/4 cup club soda or sparkling water
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar (only if not using my gfJules™ Bread Mix)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large eggs (or 2 Tbs. flax seed meal steeped for 10 minutes in 6 Tbs. hot water)

PLUS

  • 2 1/2 tsp. additional baking soda
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice

Toppings:

  • 1 Tbs. crushed nuts, flaxseeds or sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1 Tbs. coarse sea salt (optional)

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 325º F (convection) or 350º F (static).

If not using my bread mix, whisk these dry ingredients together in a large bowl: GF flours, milk powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt.

baking soda and lemon juice reaction in gluten free bread doughIn the large mixing bowl of a stand mixer, stir together the wet ingredients: honey (if using), club soda, apple cider vinegar (not necessary if using my bread mix), oil and egg.  Gradually add the dry ingredient mix or bread mix packet (do not add the yeast packet that comes with the bread mix) in by pouring slowly into the wet bowl.

Begin mixing with a wooden spoon or paddle attachment on a stand mixer. Before fully integrated, add the final addition of lemon juice and extra baking soda to the bowl. The mixture should bubble up when added together; if not, your baking soda is not fresh enough. Once incorporated, beat well for 1 – 2 more minutes.

 

Scoop the dough into an oiled 8.5 x 4 or larger bread pan (use a dark metal pan if you like a darker crust on your bread; lighter, shiny metal or glass if you like a light crust).

Wet a large serrated knife and make 2 or 3 large cuts in the top of the bread about 1/2 inch deep, rocking the knife back and forth in the wet dough to make an impression. These cuts will give the bread easy places to rise and swell open. Using the baking soda and baking powder in this recipe, together with the lemon juice and club soda causes the bread to rise high and can make an odd looking, hilly top crust, but making these cuts before baking can help it look more uniform. Either way, the bread tastes delicious, so even an odd looking top crust isn’t anything to worry about!

Smooth the top, sprinkle with any toppings, and bake for approximately 60 minutes, or until the crust is browning nicely and a cake tester or skewer inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean (internal temperature should reach 205-210º F). Start checking the temperature after 50 minutes of baking to ensure you don’t over-bake the bread.

Remove to a cooling rack. When cooled for 15 minutes, gently remove from the loaf pan to finish cooling before slicing. Once fully cooled, store in a zip-top bag on the counter or slice and freeze in a freezer bag with wax paper between the slices — do not refrigerate.

*If making in a bread machine, set to quick bread setting if it cooks for 60 minutes, or manually program the machine to mix for 20 minutes then bake for 60 minutes. There is no resting time, punch-down or rise time needed for this bread. Make sure to add the liquids first, then the dry ingredients.

  1. I received a bread machine for Christmas and just made my first loaf. Thank you for this wonderful recipe that is not only GF but yeast free and so very yummy!

      • Hi Stacie, I assume you’re talking about baking in a breadmaker? If so, you would likely use a quickbread setting because there’s no need for rise time. You’d have to check your machine for sure to see what that setting offers, but you’d basically just want a mix/knead setting and a bake setting. I hope that helps!

  2. I followed the recipe precisely yet my loaf turned out dark chocolatey colour, very very dark…Tasty for sure but if I toast it it burns immediately…wonder what happened?? Nothing dark went into the ingredients..perhaps the honey was too strong…

    • Hmmmmmm, I’ve never heard of that happening, Sue. Did you use my gfJules Flour? Honey is certainly a variable, as it each kind can be so different, but if it wasn’t dark in color I don’t know why it would have affected the final loaf color. Did it still taste good? Was it soft?

  3. Another question Jules: how much is one cup exactly? 200 ml? 250? 300 ml? (Looking at the comments everyone seems to know this except me) Thank you

    • Hi Terez, my flour is 135 grams. You can find answers to questions like these in the FAQs at the top of every page denoted with the “?” icon. Hope that helps!

  4. Hi Jules, I have just switched to gluten free diet. Made this recipe using a white bread flour mix from Tesco (that’s what I had). The bread came out tasting baking soda, it’s a bit choking to eat as well texture wise. What did I do wrong?

    • Hi Terez, I’m not familiar with that blend. My suspicion is that the baking soda taste is coming out because of that flour because it doesn’t happen when using my gfJules blend. Have a look at this article on gluten free flour comparisons and you’ll learn more about the choices available, plus be able to make a blend similar to mine with the recipe at the end, in case you can’t get my gfJules blend where you live. I hope that helps! If you can use yeast, certainly try another recipe without as much baking soda used as leavening. I have lots on my site!

    • Hi Grace, you can feel free to use gingerale or even milk. The bubbles help the bread to rise higher and lighter. Hope that helps!

    • It’s curious to me that readers want a recipe but prefer not to use one of the ingredients? Am I nuts?
      Jules goes to considerable recipe development, testing, retesting, whatever and it’s my guess that she does not post a recipe unless or until it’s good!

  5. On the bread recipe can I sub the olive oil with coconut oil?
    Thanks. Looking forward to trying your flour. Just ordered some.
    Cindy

    • Hi Cindy, melted coconut oil wouldn’t be my first pick here, but if that’s all you can use, give it a try. I really like olive oil in my yeast breads, but any vegetable oil should be fine. Let me know what you try!

  6. Hi Jules,

    Imade this bread for my daughter and it is really delicious. Do you have nutritional information for this bread?

    Thanks for sharing your receipes

    • Hi Brenda, yes you’re right to think of lemon juice as a sub for the apple cider vinegar. Enjoy the recipe!
      ~jules

  7. I can’t have apple cider vinegar or citrus so can I sub both with white vinegar? One more: can I use milk instead of milk powder? I’m so close to finding a recipe I can use!

    • Hi Monique, you can’t replace milk powder with milk, since the milk powder isn’t re-constituted. Can you tolerate almonds or gluten-free oats? If so, you could add an equal amount of almond or oat flour in place of the milk powder. The white vinegar sub should work fine. I hope this recipe works for you!

  8. I made this bread and also the beer bread and both had giant holes throughout? I have made the beer bread twice before with a different flour mix and it came out perfect. This was the first time I made it with the flour mix from the website. I did not do anything any differently. I am using a Cuisinart bread machine. Do you know what the problem could be?

  9. Jules, going to make the hot cross buns, can I use the bread mix instead of the recipe? If I can’t insread of the yeast, do I just puy in the same amount of baking soda and lemon juice?
    Thanks
    Doris

    • Hi Doris, I haven’t tried the hot cross buns without yeast yet, but that would be a good place to start. The recipe is totally different than my bread mix, so I’d say stick with the recipe as written and then try your yeast-free experiment. I’d love to know how they turn out!
      ~jules

    • Yes, Brianna! I feel the same way. Opening the door to soft, fresh bread for those who can’t have yeast is a tremendous advance!
      ~jules

    • I’m so glad this recipe will be helpful to you, Dr. Jennifer! Also check out the links I give to other yeast-free recipes in the intro!
