    Seeded beer bread

    • Vegetarian
    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes + proving
    • Cooking time: 30–40 minute

    Makes: 1 loaf


    250ml Celia Organic Gluten Free Czech Lager 
    7g Dove’s Quick Yeast 
    500g Dove’s Gluten Free White Bread Flour, plus more for kneading
    1 tsp salt 
    1 tbsp caster sugar 
    75g Waitrose Mixed Seeds, plus 1 tbsp for topping
    4 tbsp Linwoods Shelled Hemp
    2 Waitrose British Blacktail Medium Free Range Eggs 
    Juice of 1 lemon
    3 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing


    1 In a saucepan, heat the gluten-free beer until just warm. Add the yeast and set aside for 3-4 minutes or until it starts to froth.

    2 Put the dry ingredients into a bowl. In a jug, whisk together the eggs, lemon juice and olive oil, then stir into the dry mix. Add the beer and yeast mix and stir together. Transfer to a well-floured surface and knead for 2-3 minutes or until the dough is smooth. The dough will be tacky so knead with lightly oiled hands if necessary.

    3 Shape the dough into a round and transfer to a lightly oiled baking tray. Sprinkle over the remaining 1 tbsp seeds and cover with cling film. Allow to rise for 1 hour.

    4 Heat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6, and once the dough has risen make a shallow cross on top with a sharp knife. Slide a baking tray containing 4-5 ice cubes into the bottom of the oven. Put the bread tray into the top of the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until golden.

    5 Remove and check the loaf is cooked by tapping the bottom; it should sound hollow. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before slicing. Eat within 3 days.
