Tender Potato Bread - Gluten Free!

First, I created a gluten free flour mixture consisting of Amaranth, Sorghum, and a bit of Teff flour to help bind the final bread together a bit better. To this mixture I also added a dash of xanthan gum to help make this a bit more like the wonderful images I've seen people post on here.

Once I made the potato bread and it turned out wonderfully, I decided that I would make a focaccia. This was a particularly wonderful treat for me since I can't even remember the last time that I had focaccia. I made a rosemary, olive oil and sun dried tomato focaccia.

After making all of these I had a few friends come over and try out my first Daring Bakers challenge. I didn't tell them that I made them gluten free, and honestly, I don't think that they would have known if I didn't tell them when they were leaving. Thank you so much for posting this wonderful challenge. This recipe will certainly be something that I use on a regular basis.

I'm always so impressed by how your master bakers can make a very NON-Gluten free recipe completely gluten free. I'm so glad your friends like it - and didn't know the difference! Yay!

Welcome to the DB'ers, Tevis.. we're so happy you joined us!

Like Lis, I'm always intrigued by the gluten-free folks and the magic they're able to make with these gluten-heavy recipes. Great work!

I really admire how some of our DBers make breads gluten free. That is totally amazing to me and a great alternative for folks who can't take gluten. Sounds like a success!! Great job :)

Welcome to the Daring Bakers Tevis. Glad to see another GF baker in our bunch! If you get a chance it would be nice to see how your amaranth, sorghum, teff & potato bread turned out.

How wonderful that your friends had the bread and didn't know it was gluten-free! I'm glad you were able to make focaccia that you could enjoy!
