What’s for dessert ?: Gluten Free: Soda Bread

March 25, 2020 by No Comments

All these horrors that have befallen not only us but the whole world look like a very ugly dream and I hope that nightmare will end as soon as possible. Our everyday life has been replaced by some other things – extremely frequent washing and disinfection of hands, careful consideration of when we will go to the store, avoiding physical contact with other people and keeping distance, performances, matches, socializing have been postponed … I have a birthday on the same date) and this will be the first celebration without socializing, and everything seems to me without a cake. Easter is approaching, and I have a feeling that he will be waiting for some better days (I have some walnuts and poppies in the chest, so I’ll use that). While this extraordinary situation lasts, there will be no new recipes on the blog that use a lot of groceries (except the ones we usually have at home), so that everyone can leave the house as little as possible and follow the instructions of #ostanidoma.

I read on various portals and in the comments to the posts that it is impossible to get yeast, so I remembered that I have some recipes for bread on the blog that do not need yeast – gluten can be made fast bread, and for gluten-free I have a recipe for buns and focacciu. We are not really made of bread at home, it can take 10 days without eating bread at all, nor buying bread on a daily basis. That is why the husband was surprised today when he was greeted by bread on the table. For this one bread no yeast is needed and that is why I made it to be of use to you. The amount of ingredients is enough for a small bread with a diameter of about 15 cm.

  • 190 ml of milk

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

  • 270 g Schar Mix B flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (flat, not top full)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (flat, not top full)

  • 40 g cold diced butter

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (flat, not top full)

  • 1 egg white

  • a handful of grated parmesan (or some other hard cheese)

  • 1 tablespoon spices to taste (rosemary, chives, garlic)

  • optionally roasted olives, dried pumidori (can be omitted)

Mix the milk with the vinegar or lemon juice and let it stand at room temperature while you prepare the other ingredients. Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Rub the butter into the flour to get a coarse crumb structure. Lumps formed in the milk under the influence of vinegar. Add baking soda and a reaction should form (you will hear a hiss and bubbles will form). Mix egg whites into the flour, then add milk with baking soda, grated cheese and spices and knead the dough (I also added coarsely chopped baked olives). Form into a ball that you lightly flour. Place the dough in a round mold lined with baking paper and cut a cross on the surface (the deeper you cut, the more it will crack). Bake for 40 minutes in an oven preheated to 190 ° C (check with a toothpick if it is baked) and cool on the grill before cutting.
