Comment on Easy GF Vegan Lemon Madeleines by Chantal.
Hi Sarah, without oat or nut flour, the texture will change. You could try with an all-purpose GF mix, but the texture can be different depending on the flour and starch combo and if the mixture includes xanthan gum or not. There’s also tiger nut flour (not an actual nut flour) that could be considered to replace the option with nut flour, but I haven’t tested it myself. If you decide to experiment a little, let me know how it turns out.

Yeast-Free Gluten-Free Vegan Bread
Hi Emily! Were you able to get the nutritional info on the yeast-free loaf? As of now, I don’t post those details in my recipe posts but might in the future.
Sorghum Sourdough Starter
Hi, KD! Thank you for reaching out! I’m happy to hear that your starter is almost ready! If you don’t want to use starches in your bread recipe, that’s ok, but your loaf will be a little denser. That being said, you might have to experiment with the combos of GF flours and ratios until you achieve a texture that you’re happy with.
Please note that I don’t use xanthan gum, so I am not the best to tell you how much to add. I suggest using as little as possible to being (maybe 1/4 tsp up to 1/2 tsp?). This, of course, will depend on the size of your loaf. Adding too much will make your bread very gummy and sticky.
Don’t forget a little sea salt if you can. Adding salt does help with the flavour.
Sorghum, millet and brown rice flour are similar in weight and texture. You could easily add one cup of each with one cup of starter. When adding the water or plant milk, go by feel. Add half a cup and mix. If it’s too dry, add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup mix and wait. If it’s still dry, add a little more. If by accident you add too much liquid, don’t worry. You can bake the dough mixture in a bread pan lined with unbleached parchment paper. For the first loaf, try the bread pan method. If you don’t add flaxseed meal or psyllium husk, the dough might have a batter-like consistency. This combo of GF ingredients might not create a dough that is manipulable by hand to create a free-form loaf.
Once your dough is mixed, you can let it rise/rest for a couple of hours before baking. You will have to play around with your rising times as well. Waiting two hours is a great start, then adjust after each bake. Take notes as you experiment to see what works best for you in your environment.
Here are two easier GF sourdough recipes you can reference. They are not the same as what you want to try, but they could offer you some guidance.
Gluten-Free Vegan Bread Machine Loaf
Hi Vera! Thank you for reaching out! That is strange, but I guess all machines are different. You can try the gluten-free setting on yours, but it will most likely mix, rise and then bake the dough for you. Don’t forget to attach the paddle if you try. If you don’t mind experimenting, it’s worth a try!
My Story: Life & Health
Hi Melody! Thank you so much for taking the time to say hi! It means a lot to me! I’ve kept so much about what I go through for too long! And, you’re right, many of my most troublesome symptoms I often keep to myself. The thing is, why do we do that? It’s not normal to feel this way 🙁 Have you seen my new videos on YouTube? It took me a lot of courage, but I finally decided to share a little more about my health story on a new personal channel.
