This grain free and yeast free bread has to be my absolute favourite. Almost to good to share the recipe!
I always take this with me on camping holidays and festivals. I often just make it at home for a treat. Made using an > Ugg food mix < its quick and easy. Not cheap due to the mix itself but the chocolate and fruit bread lasts me for ages as I freeze most in sections .
I struggle to find gluten and grain free bread products that are also yeast free, this bread works brilliantly.
6 eggs – yolks and whites seperated
4 tbsp melted butter or melted coconut oil
1/2 pint ( 1 1/2 cups ) almond milk or regular milk
2 tbsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips ( I used Sainsbury’s Taste the difference Belgian choc chips)
4 tbsp maple syrup
1 cup of cherries and raisins ( I always use Sainsbury’s dried Morello cherries ) or any dried fruit
you could use just 1/2 cup of dried fruit if you wanted to keep the sugar content low
pre heat the oven 160c fan
mix all the wet ingredients together (beaten egg yolks , milk, vanilla essence and maple syrup)
beat the egg whites
Put the dry mix in a bowl
add the wet ingredients and the melted butter or coconut oil
stir well and add the dried fruit and chocolate chips
stir again and add the stiff egg whites
spoon into your chosen tins
I use a small loaf and a ring tin which I greased well
bake the loaf or loaves for 35mins for small loaf tin and ring tin but slightly longer for a large loaf tin
this loaf can be eaten as soon as it is cold
or cut up or frozen whole. I freeze in sections.
The bread should be mildly sweet and the bread should be light and springy.
Perfect on its on or topped with your favourite preserve
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
