Chickpea Bread Gluten and Dairy Free

This week is bread week on Great British Bake Off and I know for a fact that a few of those joining in were dreading bread week slightly whether they were a free from baker or not! I already knew which quick bread I was going to do and although it wasn't as great as the first time I baked it, the loaf was still incredibly moorish and even the children helped to devour it.

I found my bookmarked Chickpea Bread recipe from The Intolerant Gourmet and followed the instructions to the letter (always a good idea with a bread!) I love this recipe because it doesn't need a thousand different flours to make it which I can't afford. All you need is self raising flour (I use the Doves Farm brand) and Gram flour which can be bought from any good health food store. I also needed cider vinegar, I think if you can't have yeast you'll need to use sunflower oil? I'm sure you can find out more on Pippas post.

The loaf came out quite hard on the top which wasn't easy to cut through but had a delicious flavour. The center was delicious and perfectly soft, just like it should be. Always leave gluten free breads to cool because they can often look stodgy and undercooked when all they need is to be cooled properly. 

We ate the bread warm with lots of butter and enjoyed every last slice. Fancy trying chickpea bread? I think you should!
