Low Carb Bread
Makes two loaves.
3 cups warm water
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
4 cups Bob's Red Mill Vital Wheat Gluten Flour *
1 whole egg, beaten
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Splenda (sucralose) **
*or another gluten wheat flour
**or 2 tbsp sugar
Combine warm water and yeast. After yeast dissolves (3 to 5 minutes), beat in 2 cups gluten flour. Let mixture rise in a warm place until light and foamy (about 60-90 minutes).
In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, olive oil, salt, and Splenda. Beat in about 2 cups gluten flour. Use ONLY enough flour to make a dough that will knead well. Mix in yeast/flour mixture.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Knead bread for approximately 10 minutes (because of the gluten, it will become difficult to knead in about half that time).
Let rise until doubled (about 1 hour) in bulk. Shape into 2 loaves. Place in loaf pan or on baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350°F (180°C) oven about 1 hour.
NOTE: Check your bread machine manual for instructions on making this bread by machine.
