Quinoa bread-that's actually yummy
15-20 min. if bread machine is used, or an hour and a half for by hand
It yields a very soft chewy, not crumbly, raisin bread loaf
2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. cinnamon or allspice
3/4 C. tapioca flour
3/4 can or more * apple juice concentrate , thawed
1 T. soy lecithin or * oil
3/4 tsp. * salt
1 C. water , luke warm
2 1/2 C. quinoa flour
1/2 C. raisins
2 T. * oil
Whisk all dry ingredients together first before starting to add in. Add in order in a Breadman bread machine or reverse order as your bread machine directions dictate. Don't add the raisins in untill the dough is throughly mixed. Push the gluten free setting for a 1.5 lb. loaf. Assist the machine in the mixing process by mixing with a spatula until it looks like a thicker quick bread consistency. Think is this wet enough to move and rise or not. My breadmachine rises for 60 minutes and then it bakes but I cancel it when it starts to bake and bake it in a separate program for 50 minutes.
Directions by Mixer/Oven:
Whisk all dry ingredients together first. Then in a mixer add liquid ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wets. Mix for 10 minutes, let rest for 5 minutes,mix for 15 minutes, let rise in an greased bread pan for 60 minutes in a warm place with plastic wrap over it. I usually microwave a glass of water for 2-3 minutes leave it in the microwave,and then put the bread to rise in the microwave, with the door of the microwave shut. After it rises, place in a oven that was preheated to 350* to 375* and bake for 50 minutes.
