Another mouthwatering bread recipe just for you 🙂 I made these today and couldn’t wait to post the recipe. I think it’s my favourite bread so far! The light colour comes from the millet flour. With its crunchy crust and soft crumb, it’s the perfect gluten-free bread  😉

Ingredients: (for 8 single serve loafs)

  • 300g brown millet flour (in organic shops)
  • 300g corn starch
  • 50g corn flour
  • 15g xanthan gum
  • 15g of dried active yeast
  • 5g of sugar
  • 10g of salt
  • 400ml of cold water
  • 200ml of boiling water
  • poppy or cumin seeds (optional)

Preparation: 4 hours (including leavening time)

Baking: 45 minutes – 200°C


  1. In a bowl, mix the hot water with the cold water and add the yeast and the sugar.
  2. Place in a warm place and let it sit until it foams (for about 2cm of foam, count 10 to 15 minutes).
  3. Mix all the other ingredients together in a large bowl.
  4. Add the yeast mixture and knead with a wooden spatula until the dough is smooth.
  5. Let it leaven in a warm place for about 1h30.
  6. Split the dough in 8 and shape it into small balls on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Let the dough rise for another 1h30.
  7. When the dough has doubled in size, add the poppy or cumin seeds and bake at mid-height in an oven heated to 200°C for 45 minutes.
  8. Let the bread cool down before storing or enjoy warm with your favourite spread.
