G-F Foccacia Wrap Bread Recipe

Reposted as one of my Top Ten Gluten Free Recipes rated for ease, flexibility and speed.
It's easily in the top five for deliciousness!





Flat-bread, foccacia, happiness in 20 minutes, easiest bread substitute we've come across.  
Gluten-free foccacia bread like professionals in minutes.  I have always been impressed with this recipe and just today I dragged it out, dusted it off and mixed a bunch of ziploc bag mixes up for a friend.

With another friend, Lidia, we baked a pan up in less than fifteen minutes WITH prep. and BAKING!  Don't believe me?  Just try it.  But we ate it in less than that when we served it to the family.  Thanks Lidia, you rock!

WRAP BREAD

1 full cup brown rice flour or sorghum flour or my wholegrain flour mix. (any GF flour mix works.)
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons xanthum gum
2 1/4 teaspoon dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt


OPTIONAL MODIFICATION:
1 teaspoon italian seasoning (Lidia and I used this and it was great)

Wet ingredients blend together:


1 tsp  cider vinegar or dough enhancer
2 Tbs. canola oil (I CHANGED THIS from olive oil, baked goods preferred oil is canola. I read that online!)
2 eggs
3/4 cup very warm water 



(SOMEDAYS, I USE HALF THIS MUCH WATER) It should not be thin or pourable, but form somewhat of a soft, thicker, ball on the pan.  This time Lidia and I started with 1/2 cup, but ended up using the whole 3/4.

Mix dry and wet ingredients together in a heavy duty mixer. Beat for (three and three quarter) or four minutes on high.

Flatten in 11 x 17 greased pan (I use a sprayed plastic wrap and rolling pin for speed).  Lidia and I topped it with parmesean cheese.  Delish!


We let dough raise 15 minutes. Bake at 425 degrees 10 minutes, or until top is browned.

Cool 2-10 minutes Cut into pieces and store these wrapped tightly.




11-09-08: I was just sent a recipe online from Glutenfreeclub.com... It sounds so good, I printed it off and made it up and WOW! I am really impressed. It tasted so good, better than my last Wrap Bread recipe from Jennifer Cinquepalmi's cookbook, The Complete Book of GlutenFree Cooking.
That's what I have to do, keep evolving, keeping testing, keep challenging myself and be open to new and different recipes. I can't get stuck in the rut!

BUT, then the two recipes comingle in my file and I can't remember which is the good one and which is the old one. I check out the ingredients, hoping for a clue... and find to my chagrin, the recipes are exactly the same.



The only difference? One recommends that it be baked at 350 for 11-15 minutes and the other 425 for 5-8 minutes.

Fool me. Whatever. So since it was sent to me free online, can I reprint here with no compunction? I think so, particularly since I have modified it.

flatbread? flat-bread, flat bread, flatbread
