Making this bread had been a mission more complicated than we would have anticipated. Because we were trying to create a version of gluten free bread that was free of eggs but would rise normally and retained its softness and moistness inside. After several attempts, we had successfully achieved a recipe that could pass on as loaf bread itself, with the additions of quinoa and brown-rice of course.

INGREDIENTS

420 gram rice flour

150 gram tapioca starch

150 gram potato starch

80 gram brown rice flour

80 gram coconut cream powder

14 gram xanthan gum

7 gram salt

7 gram active dry yeast

50 gram sugar

50 gram trans fat free shortening

50 gram quinoa (soaked over night and blended with 50 gram water)

650 gram water

 

METHOD

1. In a bowl, sieve together rice flour and tapioca flour.

2. In another bowl, sieve together potato starch, brown rice flour, salt and coconut cream powder.

3. Soaked quinoa overnight with water and blended to fine paste. (You should get 120 – 130 gram of blended quinoa).

4. In a KENWOOD Titanium mixer fitted with a K-Paddle, mix dry ingredients together on slow speed, add in yeast, xanthan gum and sugar.

5. Slowly add in water to hydrate.

6. Add in blended quinoa and keep mixing until well combined.

7. Line a 11 x 5 x 4.5 inch bread tin with baking paper.

8. Fill in the dough, use two spatulas to level.

9. Allow the dough to proof for 40 – 45 minutes until its size doubles.

10. Prick holes with skewer. (To create vents for steam to escape, thus minimising the formations of caverns within).

11. Bake in a preheated oven of 180 degree Celcius for 1 hour 45 minutes to two hours.

 

(The bread can be kept in chiller for 2 weeks, but steam to soften before serving.)

Discovering the Torch Ginger Flower

If you stumble across a torch ginger plant, you’ll soon find yourself staring into an exotic and beautiful pink flower – one that is synonymous with Malay and Nyonya (Peranakan) dishes. The torch ginger can grow up to 20 feet in height, and the flowers (bunga kantan in Malay) are buds that appear at the end of tall, straight stalks that can be 5 feet long. The name derives from its appearance: when the plant or flower is young, it looks like a flaming …
