Cinnamon raisin bread that’s yeast free and slices like sandwich bread, this one’s a keeper. I was pleasantly surprised with this bread recipe. It holds together well despite being yeast free. I decided to add it to our collection of favorites. Our oldest child is overcoming some pretty severe digestive symptoms from celiac disease. Part of that process requires staying away from corn and yeast too. I’ve tried a few yeast free cinnamon raisin bread recipes, but they all ended up crumbly and dry.
This recipe won’t break apart when you try to spread jelly or butter on it. I have finally found a combination of ingredients that works for us. This recipe produced a nice moist and spongy loaf with loads of nooks and crannies. It slices beautifully in my machine.
Gluten and Corn free Bread that Won’t Fall Apart
Ingredients for Yeast free Cinnamon Raisin Bread:
1/2 cup of oil
4 oz of apple sauce (be sure it is corn-free– no citric acid)
1/2 cup of maple syrup or honey
1/2 cup of kefir (we used goat’s milk kefir, but any kind will do– homemade or store bought)
1 tsp guar gum
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp ground flax seed, pumpkin seed, linseed mix (or just flax seeds if that is what you have)
1 cup rice flour
2 cups Pamela’s Gluten free Pancake and Baking Mix
1/2 cup raisins
Directions for Yeast free Cinnamon Raisin Bread:
Mix all the wet ingredients in an electric mixer. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until the batter is completely mixed. Beat on high for about 2 minutes. Add raisins and stir. Pour batter into two small loaf pans. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes and then reduce heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 additional minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean. Let the loaf cool completely before slicing. This recipe slices beautifully in an electric slicer.
Update: We only use Hain’s Featherweight baking powder. It is corn-free. Again, the products are listed on the safe products page. To make your own baking powder is simple and I have posted a Homemade Corn-Free Baking Powder recipe on the blog. Did you bake it? Please let me know how you like this gluten and corn free bread recipe. Did you make any alterations? I’d love to know your substitutions!
