TIPS:

Use High-Quality Gluten-Free Flour

Choosing a good gluten-free flour blend is crucial. Look for a blend that includes a mix of rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch for the best texture.

Proper Yeast Activation

Activate the yeast in warm milk (about 110°F) with a little sugar to ensure it’s active and frothy. This step is essential for a good rise.

Accurate Measurements

Measure your ingredients precisely. Gluten-free baking can be sensitive to changes in ingredient quantities, so use a kitchen scale if possible.

Don’t Skip the Second Rise

Allowing the dough to rise twice ensures a light and fluffy texture. Be patient and let the dough rise fully in both stages.

FAQs:

What is the best gluten-free flour blend to use?

Look for a blend that contains a mix of rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch. These ingredients provide the best texture for gluten-free baking.

Can I use dairy-free milk and butter?

Yes, you can substitute dairy-free milk and butter. Almond milk, soy milk, and coconut milk work well, as do dairy-free butter alternatives.

How do I know if my yeast is active?

After mixing the yeast with warm milk and sugar, let it sit for about 5 minutes. It should become frothy and bubbly, indicating that it’s active.
