Why This Recipe Works
This bread recipe helps you skip the tedious rising phase and you can just mix ingredients and flavors to prepare a unique healthy breakfast every day. Almond flour is added to the recipe to give it a beautiful shape and coconut flour makes it rich in protein.
The ingredients used and steps followed yield excellent bread and lower the chances of cake being burned or undercooked. You can enjoy a sweeter dish now, without having to worry about your heart or health since it's gluten-free!
Almond Flour- adds texture and ambrosial flavor, and is endeared by those following bakery foodstuffs. Almond flour is low in carbohydrates and high in fat, so its presence in this recipe, made it more appropriate for those who are on a keto diet.
Coconut Flour- Cocoa flour is naturally rich in protein and fiber which makes it ideal for baked desserts that are healthy, such as this one. The addition of about ½ cup of Coconut flour makes the bread more palatable than before.
Tapioca Starch- It does the job of thickening in this whole setup. About one tbs corn starch is enough to absorb water and thicken the mixture. You can also constitute the starch with potato starch.
Sugar- Besides its role as a sweetener, it also plays the role of coloring and bulking agent in this recipe. You can use a one-to-one substitution of honey for sugar in this bread.
Yeast- a key ingredient that aids the fermentation process and makes the bread more palatable. Bread baked with yeast always appears fluffier and tougher than those made with just baking powder. So make sure not to ignore its presence.
Warm Milk- Inclusion of two cups of warm milk in this recipe helps in two ways; butter needs to be melted or sugar needs to be dissolved. Moreover, it makes the bread more nutritious.
Butter- Encompass the recipe with a light and tender texture and causes your cake to rise.

What should I do to prevent the bread from being gummy?
You need to ensure that the blend of flours to starches is in balance.
How would I know when the dough is perfectly ready?
If you have followed my recipe as it is, you should have your dough ready perfectly in 40 mins. You can also confirm by inserting a thermometer into the base of the loaf and checking if the temperature has touched 205-210 °F.
Can I add more yeast to the recipe for a greater risk of the dough?
Too much yeast can cause the dough to fall down and lose its consistent shape. So, it is never recommended to make extra addition of it.
