Baking bread with gluten-free flours

Baking a loaf with gluten-free flours requires very different techniques.

In this class, Alexandra Vaughn introduces a range of gluten-free flours. Plus, she demonstrates how to create a dough and bake a loaf using these flours.

Please note that any loaf baked in an environment using gluten, and with equipment regularly used with gluten, will not be entirely gluten-free.
