A richly flavored gluten-free bread, this one makes a perfect bed for appetizer spreads or sandwiches with grilled vegetables and cheeses.

Almond and Rice Flour Bread with Poppy Seeds
Recipe type: Breads and Rolls
Serves: 18
  • 1/2 Cup whole almonds, with skins
  • 1 1/2 Cups brown rice flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1/2 Cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 1 large whole egg
  • 1 large egg white white
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 x 4inch loaf pan.
  2. Place almonds and 1/2 cup of the flour in bowl of a food processor and grind until a fine meal is formed++the flour will prevent the nuts from turning oily. Add remaining rice flour, the baking powder, salt and 2 teaspoons of the poppy seeds; process briefly.
  3. Combine yogurt, water, whole egg, egg white and oil in a 2-cup measuring cup.
  4. With processor motor running, pour liquid ingredients through feed tube over flour mixture, processing just long enough to mix.
  5. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining poppy seeds, and bake for 55 minutes. Turn out onto a rack to cool. (Bread slices best after several hours, or the next day).
This and the following two recipes are wheat free, utilizing brown rice flour. They're from an article by Jacqueline Mallorca in the San Francisco Chronicle. For those to whom it is important, she's working on a book about wheat-free baking. No hint as to the release date though.

Makes one 18-ounce loaf (18 slices).
