2 TB active dry yeast (equal to 2 packets)
1.5 TB sugar
1.5 cups water (heated to about 110 degrees)
1 cup cornstarch
1 cup millet flour
1 cup sorghum flour
1 TB xanthan gum (equal to 1 packet)
2 tsp salt
2 TB olive oil
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
3 egg whites (at room temperature)
*You will need 4 mini loaf pans for this recipe...
1. If your water starts out cold from the fridge (filtered water...what I use), heat it in a glass measuring cup in the microwave for 1 min 25 seconds (it will need much less time if its room temp from the faucet). Stir in the sugar to dissolve. Add in your 2 TB (packets) of yeast and let sit for a few minutes...it will get foamy.
2. Put the flours, cornstarch, salt and xanthan gum into the bowl of a food processor (mine is 11 cup capacity). Pulse 5 times to combine.
3. Add the yeast/water mixture and turn on full speed for about 20 seconds.
4. In a small bowl, mix the egg whites, apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Add to food processor bowl. Mix everything on high for about 60 seconds.....scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed.
5. Spray your mini loaf pans (1/4 lb capacity each) with non-stick cooking spray (I use olive oil flavor).
6. Spoon the dough evenly into the 4 mini loaf pans and smooth out the top with a spatula. After this step, do not touch the dough again!!
7. Cover your loaf pans with a dish towel and let your dough rise until it just about doubles (it takes me an hour on the counter). The dough in these pans will rise faster than one larger loaf because of the smaller quantity.
8. While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
9. Bake for 38 minutes....until golden brown on top.
10. Let cool completely (take out of pan, lay on its side) on a cooling rack before slicing. Makes four 1/4 lb loaves.
This is such a fun sized bread! Because the dough is not weighed down at all, it rises quickly and stays light and airy! It is perfect for little kids, appetizers (toasted and topped with fun things), tea party/baby shower sized sandwiches, picnics, etc. I have found that 2 of these little sandwiches just about equals one normal sized sandwich. They are also a perfect size to share with neighbors/friends. I want to make this ALL the time now, it really is very fast and so easy! Once you taste this, you will never again buy GF bread from a store :)
