Noah's Bread

You may have heard of Noah's Bread. Like Tom's Bread, its among the most highly requested gfcf bread recipes. Why? Because it works and is versatile. I'll post the original recipe here, as originally posted on the GFCFRecipes Yahoo group message board by Kwan. She created this recipe for her son, Noah. Later, I'll post some of the variations I've used for things like donuts, rolls and soft pretzels. This is a good recipe to experiment with. Try different things you have in mind.

Original Noah's Bread

from Kwan
This is the original version of Noah's Bread, developed by Kwan for her son Noah when she couldn't find any bread he could eat.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup brown rice fl. (I subbed sorghum)
2/3 cup tapioca flour
1/3 cup corn or potato starch
2 tsp xanthan gum
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg (or sub)
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup CF milk (or water)
1/3 cup sparkling water

Recipe
Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Mix all ingredients well, except the sparkling water. Once the batter is well mixed, add the sparkling water to make the batter rise.

Work quickly and form batter into buns, bagels, roll, etc. I use hamburger form pans and rings from the Gluten Free Pantry but you can also use aluminum foil to make form rings. I also put the batter into large ziplock bags, cut a corner, and squeeze out the appropriate shape of whatever I'm trying to make, such as bagels.

The batter should be thick and look somewhat lumpy. Don't use too much batter or form too high. The bread will puff and rise and settle back down once cooled.

Bake for 20-25 min until the crust is golden brown.
The crust will be hard out of the oven but will soften once cooled.

They freeze and thaw really well.

are these ingredients readily available in health food stores? I am new to this journey and am hoping things are very expensive...so glad I found your blog!

"Very inexpensive" -- unfortunately not. This is a decision you have to make -- do you help your child or not? It might cost some bucks. It has for us -- even on a budget. I chose to buy bulk for a few years to cut costs. As for the ingredients here, you will have to find a food co-op, Whole Foods, Trader Joes or maybe your big supermarket has a specialty food section with Bob's Red Mill flours. You can buy the flours and xanthan gum there. If you can't afford the xanthan gum, look for guar gum and double the amount. Each flour is about $3-$3.50 per package. The xanthan gum will cost about $10. Egg substitute is about $4 -- or make my flax eggs for far less. Skip the CF milk and use water and sparkling soda. Relatively speaking, this is a low-cost item. You'll get to use the flours again. If you can manage, buy bigger packs of flour to cut unit prices. I buy 25 lb. bags of each flour I use directly from Bob's Red Mill -- and even with the shipping I save money. I buy xanthan gum directly from a supplier and my price is half, even with the shipping.
