Brownie without gluten 

   I like light and fast cooking (although I have long dreamed of baking classic Napoleon or Medovik) and brownie just from a series of quick desserts. It does not contain gluten, lactose, but it has eggs in it, so it's not suitable for vegans. But with products from the dough, you have to choose: either eggs or gluten. Something has to stick together otherwise it's very difficult to give the test a shape-holding texture.
Here depends on what your body responds to, the state of health and philosophical attitudes. But you can experiment with a banana or soaked linseed instead of eggs.
   We will need:
 ⁃ 3 organic eggs
 ⁃ 100 g of coconut (palm) sugar
 ⁃ 20 g of raw kako powder
 ⁃ 85 grams of rice, coconut, almond or any gluten-free flour
 ⁃ 0.5 hl of baking soda
 ⁃ Vanilla essence or natural vanilla pod
   We beat eggs with sugar in a thick cream. Carefully add dry ingredients by mixing with a silicone spatula, so that the cream does not settle.
   We put it in the form and bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees.
   Then turn off the oven, open the door and hold for 5 more minutes.
   We wait when it cools, cut into cubes and water with honey or maple syrup. Recipe Brownie can be safely used for the cake if you bake a cake. It can be creamed with natural peanut butter.

   Have a nice tea time!


   Sourdough for bread 

   Yeast in bread baking I do not use. Only a sourdough. It is almost like a pet - it requires a constant feeding, for which you will enjoy useful home-made pastries and it will live forever. The sourdough is considered a capricious product (in contrast to yeast) and from the first it does not always work. But nothing is impossible. This is not a higher mathematics or even a complicated cake.    So, we just need flour (preferably organic rye or spelled, if we want the most healthy bread) and good quality water. The principle of growing and using sourdough is fundamentally the same, but
everyone does it a little differently. I describe the option that I use myself. It is as simple as possible.
   The whole process takes 5 days. On the first day, we mix in a glass jar 50 gr of flour and 50 ml of slightly warm water. Stir and leave in a warm place for a day covered with a lid on top or a damp gauze. It is important: do not close the jar with a lid, but simply cover it, so that the leaven will breathe. After a day, repeat the procedure in the same ratio. And so every day until the 5th. Finished starter should rise in volume in two or two and a half times, actively bubble and have a pleasant aroma of hops or a little apple. And if it (smell) is rotten or unpleasant - it means something went wrong and you need to start all over again.
   On the 5th (someone on the 6th) day, the sourdough is ready for baking bread. To do this, see the previous recipe, take the necessary amount of active ferment, and put the rest in a glass jar in the refrigerator. This is called a starter. If you are going to bake bread once again, you need to feed the starter, take as much as you need to use and leave a bit for the starter on the same principle.    
   Well, if you do not bake anything for a while, then about once a week you need to feed the sourdough otherwise it will "starve" and disappear. To do this, we get it from the refrigerator, add flour and slightly warm water and leave it for about 5-6 hours in a warm place. When the yeast rose twice and began to bubble, it is active. If you are not going to bake anything, remove a few spoons, and the rest just put it back in the refrigerator. If these few spoons to throw out it is a pity, on it it is possible to do magnificent pancakes, a dough for a pizza and on what imagination will suffice.




   Baking Bread from spelled and amaranth on leaven 

   I wrote already somehow in the blog my attitude to bread and gluten. I think that gluten is different to gluten and gluten-free baked goods are often not as harmless as it seems. Which is better: white rice flour or organic rye or spelled coarse grinding - that's still a question. For myself, I chose the second option,and after a long gluten-free experiment, the aroma of freshly baked home-made bread returned to my life it became somehow even happier. Of course, I bake bread myself and basically only at leaven?
No yeast.
   The process is long and capricious, but in my own way, I would say, meditative and interesting. A recipe for those who are "friends" with the leaven and are ready to devote half a day to baking bread.
   For one bread of about 800 grams we will need:
 - 200 grams of active rye or spelled starter
 - 350 ml of room temperature water
 - 100 grams of amaranth flour
 - 600 whole-grain organic spelled flour
 - 1 hr of cane sugar
 - pinch of salt
 - 80 grams of raisins
 - Nutmeg
   Mix the active starter with water with sugar and salt. Add the amaranth flour and mix. Sift flour spelled and slowly introduce into the mixture all the while mixing.
   Leave for about 5 minutes and than knead the dough (preferably with hands) for 7 minutes. Cover with a towel and leave in a bowl for 45 minutes in a warm place.
   At the end of this time, the dough is kneaded once again by stretching from the ends and turning inwards from inside. Leave covered for another 45 minutes. Then repeat the process.
   In total, such a bluff must be three with equal intervals of time for proofing. During the last third dash in the dough slowly introduce raisins and a bit of ground nutmeg. If raisins are pre-washed, it must be dried, as the dough does not like excessive moisture. Dough put in a baking dish and leave to grow about 2-2.5 hours in a warm place. Avoid drafts and open windows.
   The dough should grow about twice, keep it in mind when choosing a form. When the dough has risen, preheat the oven to 200 degrees and bake with them the first 10 minutes with the steam. To do this, pour 50 ml of water into the low baking tray. Steam is needed to ensure that the bread as a result is not very hard. After 10 minutes, open the oven for a couple of seconds, let off steam and reduce the degrees to 180. Bake another 40-50 minutes.
   Ready bread is taken out of the oven with the grate and covered with a towel (this is mandatory) leave to cool. Crumb is formed in 6 hours, so you can safely leave the bread until the morning if you baked it in the evening. The next day it is even tastier. Bread is heavy and dense. It, naturally, is much more useful than any store or bread from a bakery. Thanks to a large amount of fiber and slow carbohydrates improves metabolism and saturates well without raising the sugar level.
