Ingredients

  • 500g packet Juvela Gluten-Free White Mix
  • 1 sachet dried yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 250-300ml (10-12 fl oz) warm water
  • Method

    1. In a large bowl, combine the Mix, yeast, salt, and sugar. Stir in the oil and sufficient water to form a soft but not sticky dough.
    2. Knead the dough until smooth on a surface lightly dusted with Gluten-Free Mix.
    3. Shape the dough into an oval and using a sharp knife, make shallow incisions on top, then brush with a little oil.
    4. Leave to prove in a warm place for approx. 30 minutes, and then bake in a preheated oven (220ºC/425ºF/Gas Mark 7) for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
    5. Alternatively, you can divide the dough into 8-10 pieces, and shape into rounds to make individual rustic rolls. Bake for approx. 15minutes.
    6. You can also make this into a seeded loaf by adding 150g (6oz) assorted seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, poppy, sesame, hemp, linseed) to the dry mixture (step 1), and using Juvela Gluten-Free Fibre Mix in place of White Mix.
