Recipe: Gluten Free Baguette and English Muffin

gluten free dairy free baguette and english muffin recipe

I have been working on bread dough recipes the last couple of weeks. Bread recipes are definitely lacking on my blog and I knew I had to challenge myself and try to come up with some.

Baking gluten free bread here in Calgary is definitely a challenge.

Not only are we near the mountains, we are fairly high up in altitude and we also have no humidity. Those reasons I find make baking gluten free bread more of a challenge for me.

One of the things I have kinda figured out is you definitely need to mix the yeast separately with warm milk and let it rest and grow.

That helps a lot.

I have also found that I need to add more liquid to my doughs. It does look weird to me to have a bread dough look more like cake batter than dough but that is gluten free.

I baked full-on gluten bread almost everyday when my kids were younger and that dough was a delight to work with.

Gluten Free is now my world and I am learning to embrace it rather than fight it!

I have made this recipe a few times now and it can easily be made into a bread loaf.

If you want to make english muffins you will need some metal rings.

I found these ones in a small kitchen store.
