There is a place here in Texas called Ramano’s Macaroni Grill and they serve this incredible bread at the table to munch on while you’re looking at the menu. Served with a plate of olive oil, italian seasoning and mixed with some basalmic vinegar, you won’t be able to put it down.
Using some tips from Gluten Free on a Shoestring and better batter flour I decided to try and make a gluten free version of it for my 4 year old. Well after 4 attempts I nailed it!! I used an 8″ round cake pan to put this loaf into and let it rise and bake in it. It fits nicely into the microwave for the rising and then you can pop it into the oven to cook it in. (I used Nicole Hunn’s method of rising by using the heated wet towel in the microwave and it worked great!) Here is the recipe.
Gee Eff Rosemary Garlic Bread
Makes 1 loaf
1 1/2 tsp. yeast
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 C. warm water (105°-110°)
1/2 C. better batter flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbs. rosemary
1 tbs. butter (soft)
1 extra large egg white (beaten)
1 tbs. butter and 1 tsp. garlic salt melted together to brush onto the bread 10 min before it’s done cooking.
Place the yeast, sugar and water in the mixing bowl and let dissolve for a few min. It’s ok to stir it if needed. Put in the butter, salt, rosemary and flour. Turn the mixer on low until flour is blended in and then add the egg white. Then turn on mixer full speed for 6 min.
While the dough is mixing grease an 8″ round cake pan and get a floured surface ready. When the done mixing scrape out the dough onto the floured surface. Pat, roll and form the dough into a nice loaf adding more flour if it’s too sticky. Place the formed loaf into the pan and let rise in a warn, draft free area for 30 min.
Pre heat the oven to 375° and bake 15-20 mn. Just before the loaf is done brush it with the melted butter and garlic salt and put it back into the oven until done.
