Chickpea-buckwheat bread

Chickpea-buckwheat bread
This bread has a lovely brown colour and nutty flavour. It is delicious served with a salad for lunch or slightly toasted for breakfast.

435ml water

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp cider vinegar

3 eggs

125g chickpea flour (besan)

50g buckwheat flour

100g rice flour

125g tapioca starch

125g potato starch

2 tsp salt

1 tbsp sugar

3 1/4 tsp xanthan gum

1 bsp dried yeast

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4. Grease a loaf tin.

Mix together the water, oil, vinegar and eggs in a mixer. In another bowl, combine the flours, starches, salt, sugar and xanthan gum, then add the yeast.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix for 2 minutes on a low speed. 

Pour the dough into a greased loaf tin. Smooth the surface of the dough with wet hands. Cover with a dry cloth and let stand for 30 minutes at room temperature.

Bake for 30 / 35 minutes. If you have a probe cooking thermometer, check the temperature inside the loaf; it should be 90°C when it comes out of the oven. 

Turn the bread out immediately to prevent moisture condensing in the tin.
