12 portions



  • 350g lentil flour (Cuisine Soleil)
  • 150g tapioca flour (Cuisine Soleil)
  • 10 ml guar gum
  • 5 ml xanthan gum
  • 15 ml salt
  • 30 ml gluten-free yeast
  • 15 m l raw sugar
  • 600 ml warm water (43-46ºC /110-115ºF), divided
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 45 ml canola oil
  • 15 ml cider vinegar
  • 5 ml caraway seeds (optional)
  • Buckwheat flour for bread mold


  • 1. Oil and flour a 24cm x 11cm (9 1/2 x 4 1/4-inch). Put a good amount of flour on the bottom of mold to prevent bread from sticking.
  • 2. In the bowl of the stand mixer, mix all the flours, gums and salt together. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in 100ml of the warm water and let rest 5 minutes. In another bowl, mix eggs, remaining 500ml of water, oil and vinegar together.
  • 3. Put mixer in Stir mode and add yeast mixture and egg mixture to flour mixture. Beat dough on second speed for 1 minute, then on third speed for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add caraway seeds and beat 1 minute longer. Pour dough in prepared bread mold.
  • 4. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, then with a kitchen towel. Place in a warm corner and let rise 30 minutes. If it rises rapidly, reduce time to 15-20 minutes.
  • 5. Preheat oven to 204ºC (400ºF) and place a bowl of warm water on the bottom grill of the oven. Carefully take of plastic wrap; it will stick to the dough.
  • 6. Bake bread 15 minutes. Lower heat to 190ºC (375ºF) and cover bread loosely with a sheet of aluminum paper. Bake 45 minutes. Lower heat to 176ºC (350ºF) and bake, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes longer.
  • 7. Unmold immediately and let cool completely on a kitchen rack.
