Gluten-free artisan bread loaf with oil bowl

Naturally gluten-free artisan bread loaf


Having a soft and chewy gluten-free artisan bread is quite a dream. And making it with only natural flours, even more impossible!

This bread recipe takes a little time to make since the dough requires 3 phases. However, it is very simple. I usually knead it in the evening, then pop in the fridge and bake the morning after. But the result is so worthy it will soon become on of your favorite gluten free bread recipe!

Gluten-free flours substitutions

The gluten free flours ideals to bread baking for me are rice and buckwheat flour, especially combined. For this gluten-free artisan bread we use rice, buckwheat and corn.

The buckwheat and corn flour used are replaceable with other gluten free flours such as quinoa flour, sorghum flour or even chestnut flour. As in all gluten free bread recipe, it is always better to mix several gluten free flours.

To replace the corn starch you can use potato starch, tapioca starch or rice starch, too.

As all of my recipes, this gluten-free bread recipe contains no gums and no pre mixed flours.

  8. Hi I live in Australia I haven’t seen yellow corn flour in our shops.
    What else could I use?


  9. Hi there Marta. I made this today. Followed instructions to the tee. But the loaf came out very dense. Is there an extra proof I should do after I pull it out of the fridge?

    • Hi Savannah,
      For this recipe it is really important to wait for each step (step 1: mix the first dough, then wait, then fold in the rest of the flours). And when I remove the bowl from the fridge, I let the dough on the counter for about 1 hour, while the oven gets very hot. If you liked the taste, I would go for a second try 😉
