Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add buttermilk, water, brown rice flour, and sorghum flour to a large mixing bowl.

  2. Using hand beaters on low speed, combine ingredients well.
  3. Form batter into a ball and place in ceramic dish. Cover and leave at warm room temperature for 12 to 24 hours, or overnight.
  4. Once dough is soured, preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  6. Transfer dough ball to a large mixing bowl.
  7. In separate medium size bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients: chia seed flour, psyllium husk powder, coconut sugar, baking soda, and sea salt.
  8. Add cooled melted butter, egg, and dry ingredients to the soured dough.
  9. Use hand beaters on medium-low speed to combine all ingredients well, about 30 seconds. Do not over-mix.
  10. Add raisins, if using, and mix again to combine.
  11. Dough will be soft at this point, but will continue to stiffen quickly.
  12. Form dough into desired boule shape, place on prepared cookie sheet, and continue to pat it into desired shape.
  13. Use a sharp knife to make an “x” across the surface of the loaf, about 1/2-inch deep.
  14. Place into preheated oven and bake for about 55 minutes, until it feels somewhat light and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. (This loaf will not sound as light as some loaf recipes — it’s a bit heavier by nature.)

  15. Slice and enjoy!
