I’ve been making A to Z bread for years, aptly named because you could basically add anything from A to Z and still use the same recipe. I got the original recipe from Real food for Real People. I had to alter it recently to fit my new dietary needs. I replaced the wheat/white flour with a gluten-free flour blend that I mixed myself. The results were great.

The original A to Z recipe calls for 3 cups of white flour. It then allows for 2 cups of any 31 fruits or vegetables on their list, starting with grated apples and ending with grated zucchini. The version you see pictured here is Pumpkin Bread. It is gluten, corn, and casein-free. My gluten free from A to Z bread is easy to make and bakes up in about one hour.

Ingredients for Gluten free from A to Z Bread:

1 cup of the savory palate brown rice mix
2 cups of coconut flour from tropical traditions
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons cinnamon (optional)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups of your favorite A to Z ingredient (Pumpkin is pictued)
3 teaspoons vanilla

Directions for Gluten free from A to Z Bread:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.Grease the loaf pans. In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients and stir together with a wisk.Beat eggs in another large bowl, add oil and sugar; cream well.Add dry ingredients and mix well.Add nuts.Pour into pans.

Bake for about one hour, until a toothpick or skewer comes out clean. For best results, use oil. I have tried this recipe with butter, but it doesn’t rise as much and is too crunchy. Makes two large loaves of gluten free A to Z bread.

  1. Elaine,
    I tried the recipe with pecans and cranberries. It rose well and tasted great but I noticed that the bread was a bit crumbly. I think the GF A to Z needs a liquid or a mashed fruit/veg in addition to the raisin and nut ingredients for moisture– just FYI for anyone wanting to try a variation from the pumpkin. I’m thinking maybe applesauce? Milk of some kind (almond, rice, cow, etc….)
    What do you think?

  2. Yes, it was a bit crumbly. Since I’m new to GF baking, it was in the acceptable range to me, but I love your idea of adding more liquid. I would try Rice Milk, how much do you think?

    Thanks!

    Elaine
