This delicious bread is mostly savory with just a touch of sweetness from the peaches. It’s a little dense, but man, does it ever hit the spot for anyone with a hankerin’ for a good (and not obviously Gluten Free, like the crappy ones in the freezer section of the grocery store [blech!]) piece of bread.
It’s really crusty too…
…in a good way!
Rustic Peach Bread – Vegan and Gluten Free
- 1 cup HOT water
- 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
- 4 tbsp dry active yeast
- 5 tbsp granulated vegan sugar
- 1 tbsp vinegar
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup white rice flour
- 1 cup sorghum flour
- 1 1/2 cups tapioca flour
- 3 tsp xanthan gum
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 1 cup fresh peaches, peeled and chopped
Combine hot water, non-dairy milk, yeast and sugar into large mixing bowl and proof yeast until foamy. Once foamy, add vinegar and olive oil. Stir well.
In separate bowl, mix together white rice flour, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum and sea salt. Combine with other ingredients just until well blended. Fold in peaches and spoon into 8″ x 4″ loaf pan. Let rise about 1 1/2 hours in a warm place.
Preheat oven to 350 °F and bake bread for about 45-50 minutes, or until top of loaf is golden brown.
Store in airtight container, but it’s best fresh from the oven drizzled with a little olive oil and cinnamon. :) Also amazing with jam…
