Gluten-Free Irish Brown Bread

Gluten-Free Irish Brown Bread

This is a fantastic party bread; serve toasted slices on a cheese tray or with your favorite hummus or avocado spread.

This dense, dark loaf has deep, nutty flavor. Often served for breakfast with thick slices of butter and for supper with a hearty stew, this popular bread finds its way onto nearly every Irish table. This gluten-free version embraces the spirit of true brown bread, which is made from whole grains and dark treacle (molasses). Its hearty texture comes from teff seed and golden flaxmeal, with the requisite chew derived from gluten-free oat flour. Bake it in a dark loaf pan to help the crust develop. Then turn the bread out before the bake time is finished to obtain a crunchy crust all around. This lets you dip pieces into yogurt or mead without crumbling.
