Gluten-Free Garlic Bread

Gluten-free Garlic Bread

If you are gluten intolerant or simply trying to reduce your wheat intake, we reckon one of the hardest foods to go without is a delicious slice of butter-drenched garlic bread. But this gluten-free version is so quick and easy to make, you'll be enjoying garlic bread every day of the week - as a tasty lunch, to accompany soup and stews, or served to guests as a snack while dinner is cooking.

Ingredients for 2 portions

•4 tablespoons olive oil

•2-3 freshly crushed garlic cloves

•4 tablespoons gluten-free baking flour with xanthum gum (we used Schär Gluten Free Universal flour)

•1/4 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder

•pinch of salt

•2 tablespoons milk

•2 whole eggs

•butter, for greasing

•2 teaspoons of dried parsley

•Black pepper, to taste

•2 teaspoons freshly grated parmesan cheese

Method

1.Pre-heat the oven to 180 C, and grease a shallow baking dish (approx 18 centimetres square) with a little butter or oil.

2.Pour half the oil (two tablespoons) into a small bowl, and crush two-three fresh garlic cloves into this. Mix together and set aside.

3.Measure the gluten-free flour, baking powder and salt into a medium-sized bowl, and stir well to combine.

4.In a separate bowl or jug, combine the milk, eggs and remaining oil. Whisk together with a fork, and pour the wet ingredients over the flour mixture. Stir briskly to create a smooth batter, then tip into the prepared baking dish.

5.Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes until set, then remove briefly and drizzle the remaining oil and crushed garlic mixture over the bread. Sprinkle with dried parsley and some black pepper, and grate a little parmesan cheese over the bread if you like.

6.Pop the bread back into the oven for a few more minutes, until the cheese has started to melt, and the garlic bread is beginning to turn golden brown.

7.Serve warm, as a snack or side dish.
