Gluten Free Farmhouse Loaf
1 3/4 cups all purpose gluten free flour
1 TBSP xanthan gum
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp sugar
1 TBSP instant yeast
4 TBSP flavorless oil (I used avocado oil)
1 tsp lemon juice
1 egg - beaten
1 1/3 cups lukewarm water
Sift the flour, xanthin gum, sugar and salt into a bowl. Add the yeast, oil, lemon juice and beaten egg.
Add the water and beat well with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes - until smooth.
Preheat oven to 400.
Transfer the dough to an oiled and floured loaf pan, smooth top and cover loosely with oiled plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes - until the dough has reached the top of the pan.
Bake in preheated oven for around 90 minutes - until it has become deep golden and sounds hollow when tapped.
Let cool on wire rack.
