    Hello all,
    I have noted that there are several peeps on this forum with gluten intolerance. In the interest of not clogging other threads, I thought I'd start a thread for GF baking. There have been a few threads on this in the past, but they've all died.

    Feel free to share recipes, tips, and anything else....

    Here's a flour recipe to start us off.

    500 g sorghum, tapioca, and buckwheat flour

    250 g potato starch, millet, and sweet white rice flour

    75 g corn starch

    2 Tbsp Xanthan gum

    Buffalo Chicken

    2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
    1/4 c dill pickle juice
    1 egg, beaten
    1/2 c tapioca flour
    1 Tbsp paprika
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1 dash ground cayenne pepper- go very light on this one
    1/2 c+ oil for frying

    Cut chicken into 1" chunks. Put into plastic bag (I used a loaf pan) and marinate in pickle juice for 1/2 hour.

    After 1 hour, drain excess pickle juice off chicken. Mix egg in with chicken, let sit for 5min, and pour off exess.

    Stir dry ingredients together in large plastic bag. Add chicken, coat well, and fry.

    Farmhouse Seed Bread- GF

    This is my main recipe, it is best after it is a few days old. It is very high fiber and healthier than some breads, but not quite as tasty. Good sandwich bread.

    (I'm going off memory here, so apologies if instructions are unclear)
    1080 grams flour
    1 1/2 Tbsp salt
    1575 g warm water
    3 Tbsp yeast
    3 Tbsp sugar
    1/2 c oil
    3/4 c psyllium husk
    1/2 c unground chia

    Mix flour and salt. I use a kitchenaid mixer so the flour and salt go in the mixing bowl.

    In another bowl, put yeast and sugar in water, stir, and add oil.

    Grind the chia seeds and mix with psyllium husk in separate bowl. Add psyllium/chia mix to oil, yeast, and sugar. Stir.

    It will be lumpy at this point, and as one kiddo succinctly put it, looks like ogre boogers. Add to flour/salt and mix on "2" with dough hook till combined.

    Let rise, punch down, and put in greased loaf pans. (I think it makes around 3-4 loaves) Let rise in warm oven for a bit and cook at 350 for 60-70 min or until it looks done.
