This bread is really easy to make and tastes delicious, rises beautifully and best of all for those who have Coeliac disease is gluten free.  I have talked before about how difficult it can be to get a decent tasting bread which is gluten free – a lot of what I experimented with were hockey pucks destined for the bin, but this one made me jump up and down when I peeked in the oven and saw how beautifully it had risen. I have experimented for a while with various flours and like this combination a lot – The overall taste of this bread is a savory nutty one so this is especially good with roast meats in an open sandwich topped with loads of lovely salad leaves.

 
3 eggs
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp cider vinegar
15fl oz Water
4 1/2 oz Chickpea flour
2oz buckwheat flour
4oz each of almond,soya and potato flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
3 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tbsp dried yeast
2 tbsp sesame seeds

Mix all the dried ingredients together taking care not to throw the yeast on top of the salt.
In a large mixing bowl, gently beat all the wet ingredients together then with the speed on low,add the dry ingredients in two or three lots. Scrape down the bowl and beat for about 2 minutes.
Pour into a well greased (I use parchment tin liners) loaf tin, Leave for 30 minutes in a warm place then sprinkle over the sesame seeds and bake for about 45 minutes until well risen, golden brown and a skewer comes out clean. (Internal temp = 90C if you have a gauge).
