Author: Julia
  • 4 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour see note
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon rubbed sage
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • Cracked pepper
  • 1 cup grated gruyere cheese or parmesan or asiago
  • 2 1/4 cups buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add all ingredients except for the buttermilk and whisk to combine.
  3. Form a well in the flour
  4. Pour in the buttermilk
  5. Using a spoon, stir the buttermilk into the flour, making small circles first then working your way outward to incorporate all the flour.
  6. Form the dough into a ball in your hands and turn it out onto a floured surface. The dough will be sticky. Kneed the dough a few times then form it into a disc about 2” thick. You can sprinkle some flour on the disc. Place the dough on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
  7. Using a serrated knife, gently cut an X into the dough, about ½” to 1” deep.
  8. Bake the bread 20 minutes and then lower oven heat to 400 degrees and bake 27 to 30 minutes or until the bread is golden-brown and sounds hallow when tapped.
Recipe Notes

*Bob’s Red Mill's gluten-free 1-to-1 flour works great!  You can also replace the Gluten-free flour with equal parts all-purpose flour or a combination of all-purpose and whole wheat.
