GF Sourdough Bread is so delicious and made easy using a gluten free starter. Coupled with yeast, the bread had a great crumb.Jump to Recipe
We have been talking about how I have tried to vary the recipes to figure out the perfect result. The changes made in this recipe is to use yeast as well as the gluten free starter. I also have been favoring psyllium husk over xanthan gum as a binder. I like the results of the bread better.
I just researched what psyllium husk is and one of the top two results is metamucil. I didn’t get the result I was looking for but maybe you did! LOL! What I learned was that psyllium husk is an ingredient used in laxatives. It is a FIBER from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. How do scientists figure this stuff out?
The other key ingredient that I used was apple cider vinegar. I am not sure what the science is but my GLUTEN FREE HONEY WHITE BREAD RECIPE is a winner and I think the apple cider vinegar has a lot to do with it. The other ingredient I feel adds a lot is the honey.
The cast of characters.
Combining all the ingredients and baking the bread.

Finding the right combination of ingredients to make this GF Sourdough Bread. The keys are psyllium husk, honey and apple cider vinegar.
- 3 Cups Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF flour
- 1/2 Cup GF Buckwheat flour
- 2 Tsp Psyllium Husk
- 2 Tsp Baking powder
- 1/4 Cup Olive oil
- 2 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tsp Active yeast
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tbsp Honey
- 1 Cup Sparkling Water beaten
- 1/2 Cup Gluten Free Sourdough Starter heated
Begin by blooming the yeast with the starter and the honey. This will take 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine all the dry ingredients in a big bowl.
Next, place all the wet ingredients in a stand mixer and mix for 2 minutes until well combined.
Slowly, alternate adding in the dry ingredients and sparkling water into the wet ingredients in 3 steps. Mix after each addition. The dough should be more dough like than batter like. Once formed, cover and put in a warm place covered with oiled plastic wrap to proof for 2 hours. Pour the dough on the counter and knead for 1 – 2 minutes with dough scraper. Put on an oiled and lightly floured piece of parchment paper, and place in a bowl for the final proofing. This step will take 30 – 60 minutes.
Before placing in a 350 degree oven, dust the top with flour and a little oil. Cook for 60 minutes. Using a thermometer, test to see that your bread has an internal temperature of 205 – 210 degrees. Let completely cool before slicing.
Serve and enjoy!
