YEAST MIXTURE INGREDIENTS
3/4 Cup warm water (110 degrees)
2 Tablespoons coconut sugar
2 1/4 Teaspoons dry active yeast (1 packet)
3 Cups Arrowhead Mills All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Mix
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons full fat coconut milk, warmed, with 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar added
1 Tablespoon olive oil for mixing in + 1 Tablespoon for proofing bowl
OIL BASTING MIX – OPTIONAL
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Clove of garlic – crushed
1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
1/2 Teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
STARCH FOR ROLLING
About 1/4 Cup tapioca starch for dusting & rolling out bread
Stir together warm water & coconut sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer. Add the yeast and allow to proof for about 10 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients.
In medium bowl, whisk together Gluten Free Flour Mix, baking powder & salt.
Add the apple cider vinegar to the warmed coconut milk and let sit.
After yeast has proofed, add your dry ingredients along with the olive oil, coconut milk & apple cider vinegar to the stand mixer bowl.
Using the paddle attachment, mix the dough on a medium-high speed for approximately 2 minutes.
Using a spatula, scrape down the sides and bottom of bowl and form dough into a ball. Then drizzle the extra olive oil over the dough ball so that it is well coated.
Set dough aside to proof, covered with a kitchen towel, for approximately 1 hour or until the dough doubles in size.
BAKING STONE OVEN INSTRUCTIONS:
Preheat your oven and stone to 450 degrees.
CAST IRON PAN STOVE TOP INSTRUCTION:
Preheat your cast iron pan on a medium heat until it’s evenly hot and reduce heat as necessary to maintain the temperature. You may need a little bit of oil on the cast iron pan if it’s not well seasoned or dry.
Line your cutting board with parchment paper and dust generously with tapioca starch to prevent sticking. Make sure your rolling pin is ready to go.
Divide the dough into 8 pieces
Roll each piece into a ball and flatten with your hands into a thick disk before rolling out. With the residual oil left in the bowl, the dough shouldn’t stick to your hands, but dust your hands if necessary.
Roll out the dough ball into a circle that is approx. 1/4″ thick. Don’t roll it too thin.
Place the flattened dough onto your prepared hot baking stone or pan and allow to cook for 2-5 minutes until the bottom is lightly browned. When cooking on the stovetop in a pan, you may need to flip the bread over after a minute or two so that both sides cook thoroughly. The bread may bubble and puff up as it cooks – that’s perfect!
Remove bread from oven/pan and place onto a plate and cover with a kitchen towel – this step is essential to keeping the bread moist before serving.
Repeat the process until all pieces are cooked.
OIL BASTING INSTRUCTIONS
In a small fry pan, add olive oil, crushed garlic & seasonings and sauté until garlic is soft. Or, just use olive oil.
Using a basting brush, baste the finished bread (top & bottom) generously with the seasoned oil and cover with towel until serving. This step not only adds amazing flavor, but helps the bread to stay soft – even after refrigerating or freezing and re-heating later.
Store any unused bread in the fridge for 2-3 days – or freeze for up to one month. To reheat, I warmed mine in the cast iron skillet on the stove, flipping halfway through.
