Gluten Free Bread: Garlic Herb Muffins

Many of the emails I receive have been about making gluten free bread that is yeast free as well. The only gluten free yeast free bread I have ever seen was corn bread. Now, I love corn bread, but if I had to eat it every day because I couldn’t find anything else, well… that would get tiresome.

Here is a savory muffin that would go well with many things. Soup, gluten free spaghetti and meatballs, chicken, turkey, ham or made into cute little tea sandwiches. 

Garlic Herb Muffin

1 6.5oz package of Garlic & Herb spreadable cheese, softened (like alouette)
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups gluten free flour***
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. salt

*** I used King Arthurs Measure for Measure gluten free flour blend. This already had xanthan gum in it so don’t add the xanthan gum in the ingredients above.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Grease muffins wells. I used an 8 well rectangle muffin tin ( see it here!). Makes cute little loaves. Or line them with papers.

Beat the cheese and the egg together with an electric mixer until creamed well. Add the milk and oil and mix together.

Place the gluten free flour, baking powder, and xanthan gum and salt if using and whisk together. Pour into the cheese mixture and either beat with the mixer or stir together by hand. I want it done NOW, so I used the electric mixer.

Scoop out the dough using a cookie scoop and divide among the muffin wells.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes (mine took 23). Poke with a toothpick and make sure it comes out clean then pull them out. Pop them out right away or stand them up on their edges to cool. If you leave them in the muffin tin to cool they will get soggy bottoms. Nobody wants soggy bottoms, not even muffins.

Makes 8 rectangles or 12 regular muffins

Happy Baking!

    I do not need to be gluten or yeast free but these sound so tasty, can they be made with ordinary flour.

      Yes, you can sub out regular flour for the gluten free flour. You may need to add a little more since we tend to make our batters with more liquid than you normally would with regular flour.
