A simple quick bread that is scrumptious when hot from the oven. Perfected when served with a dollop of raspberry preserves!
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 2 tablespoons gluten free baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup mashed potatoes
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup mixed dried fruit, chopped (such as prunes, apricots, currants, or raisins) (optional)
- In a large bowl, combine flour, molasses, powder, and salt.
- Cut in butter until it is in tiny pieces.
- Add potatoes and stir well.
- Pour in milk and stir with a fork to form a ball.
- Turn out onto working surface and knead 10 times.
- Divide into 4 equal portions (rounds) and pat down to 1" thickness.
- Bake in a preheated 400* oven for about 25-30 minutes until brown.
- Cut into wedges, slices, or simply pull off pieces of the round.
I tried this bread because I did not have any eggs on hand and wanted bread. It turned out ok, but quite salty. I would only put in 1/2 t salt next time. Other then that it was pretty good. Also very easy to make. I used 1 C Sorghum flour, 1 C Rice flour, and 1/2 C tapioco flour. Its also a little crumbly, but I was expecting that as well!
