So let’s start the week off right with a new recipe, shall we…

Easter bread is a family tradition for us. I grew up with it every year for breakfast Easter morning and it always made an appearance at our Easter brunches or lunches. I’ve sorely missed it the last few years since going gluten-free. So, I decided, why not experiment with a gluten free/dairy free version! And it came out great! Thanks to Silpat’s amazing liners, this bread came out perfectly. It didn’t stick to my dish or anything! It’s just slightly sweet from a combination of honey and coconut sugar and would go perfectly with your other brunch recipes this Easter! Try it out and don’t forget to enter our amazing giveaway this week! This amazing gluten free Easter bread is sure to kick off your Easter celebrations with a bang!

Gluten Free Easter Bread

 

Gluten and Dairy Free Easter Bread

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 packages quick-rise yeast
  • 2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 cups Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 gf flour blend
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk I used New Barn
  • 5 tbsp ghee
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 dyed Easter eggs for decoration (optional)

Instructions

  1. Using a kitchenaid or stand mixer, combine honey, coconut sugar, yeast, cardamom, vanilla, and salt.  Stir in 1 cup of flour. 

  2. In a small saucepan, heat milk over low heat (don't let it boil!). Melt ghee into milk and pour over flour mixture. Stir until well combined.

  3. Add in raw eggs, on at a time, and stir until combined.

  4. Stir in the rest of the flour (5 cups). Dough will be slightly sticky.

  5. Take dough out of Kitchenaid and place on floured counter.

  6. Kneed for 5 minutes until dough is nicely elastic. You can add in a bit more flour if needed. 

  7. Place dough in a well-greased bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel and rise in a warm area for an hour.

  8. Punch down dough and continue to rise another 30 minutes.

  9. Remove dough from bowl and cut into three pieces. Roll each piece into a 24 inch rope.

  10. On a silpat, braid dough and form a wreath out of the dough. Place in a large pie pan.

  11. Place dyed eggs around the wreath. Coat with egg wash (1 egg whisked with a little water).

  12. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until nicely browned. Cool and serve.
