Grain Free - Bicolour Bread

This bread can be made by hand or with a stand mixer. 

Ingredients

Dark

450 g Bakers' Magic Grain free flour

2 Eggs

2 tsp Yeast

2 tsp Bicarb of soda

1/2 tsp Salt

50 g Oil 

 525g Warm water

 

Light

450 g Bakers' Magic Grain free flour

2 Eggs

2 tsp Yeast

1/2 tsp Salt

50 g Oil 

  525g Warm water

  

Method

Grease a large loaf tin, mine is 25.5 cm x 9.5 cm. 

Put the yeast, 10 g of Bakers' Magic Grain free flour and 100 g of warm water into a small container. Stir to disperse the yeast & let it sit for ~5 mins. This mix will revive the yeast due to the sugar content of coconut flour (a component of the grain free blend). Optional - add 2 tsp of sugar instead of the bread mix (grain free).

In one bowl mix together Bakers' Magic Grain free flour, bicarb & salt (dark). In another bowl mix together Bakers' Magic Grain free flour & salt (light).  

In a large bowl whisk together the activated yeast, warm water, oil & eggs (for both dark & light mixes). 

Divide the wet ingredients and pour half over the dry ingredients for the dark mix & the remaining half over the dry ingredients for the light mix. Stir to combine.

Transfer blobs of the dark & light dough to the loaf tin. Alternating the different dough to create the bicolour effect.  Proof in a warm place for ~40 mins.

While the dough is proofing turn oven on to 180 - 200 C. The higher the temperature, the darker the loaf.  

Bake for 50 mins. Allow to cool before cutting into the loaf.
