Cheddar-Garlic Confit No-Knead Bread (Gluten-Free)

Every as soon as in a while, I enjoy to experiment with the timeless No-knead bread dish– including little bits of odds and ends, changing out the flours, experimenting with the quantity of yeast, and so on. As picky as some gluten-free breads can be, this is remarkably versatile … reasonably. This moment about, I was influenced by the white cheddar-garlic loaf from Great Harvest, as well as equipped with a jarful of garlic confit I was currently half method there.

Icing up the cloves as well as cheddar dices implies that upon reducing right into the loaf you’ll exist with pockets of melty cheese and also still-intact garlic cloves, rather a gently tacky, garlicky flavorful bread. I enjoy to offer pieces when it’s still cozy with a drizzle of the garlic-infused oil and also a spray of half-cracked sea salt– it ‘d most definitely be excellent combined with a warm dish of tomato soup on a cold autumn evening!

Active ingredients


  • 42 grams (regarding 1/3 mug) confit garlic cloves, icy
  • 42 grams (concerning 1/3 mug) added sharp cheddar, reduced right into 1/4 ″– 1/2 ″ dices as well as icy


  • 54 grams (1/4 mug plus 3 tbsps) millet flour, plus extra for forming loaf
  • 54 grams (1/4 mug plus 3 tbsps) garbanzo fava flour
  • 72 grams (1/4 mug plus 2 tbsps) potato starch
  • 32 grams (1/4 mug) arrowroot starch
  • 2 1/2 tsps xanthan periodontal
  • 1/2 tsp energetic completely dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 4 grams (1 tsp) vaporized walking stick juice or granulated white sugar
  • 7 ounces (3/4 mug plus 2 tbsps or 198 grams) area temperature level water
  • 10 grams (2 tsps) cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsps cornmeal

For offering (optional):

  • Garlic confit-infused oil
  • Maldon sea salt or Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper


Mix Dough:

In the dish of a stand mixer, blend with each other millet flour with vaporized walking stick juice. In a gauging mug with spout, incorporate the water as well as vinegar. Fit the mixer with paddle add-on as well as transform on to reduced rate. Put water as well as vinegar right into the completely dry components and also remain to blend on reduced rate up until the flour is primarily integrated. Boost the rate to tool as well as defeat for 2 mins.

Forming Loaf:

Turn the dough out onto a millet floured surface area. Spray the leading with even more millet flour, after that roll the dough around a little, covering all sides with flour. Rub the dough right into a disk, about 3/4 -1 ″ thick (no demand for excellence right here!). Scatter icy garlic confit cloves and also cheese over the surface area. Fold up the leading “side” right into the center of the circle, after that the left as well as appropriate sides right into the center, as well as lastly, all-time low right into the facility to make a made even ball-like form. Delicately squeeze the resulting joint with each other to seal. Turn the dough over and also roll it around a little bit even more to get rid of any type of staying joints. (If you require to begin again with the disk/folds/rolling right into sphere procedure, do not fret. Simply attempt to see to it that most of the garlic and also cheese items are covered by dough so they do not overcook in the stove.) Area the developed dough right into a tiny dish (regarding 1 litre in ability), and also curtain an item of cling wrap carefully over the dough– not simply over the top of the dish.

Permit Dough to Rise:

Let dough remainder concerning 4 hrs at area temperature level. Inside a microwave or on the top of the fridge are commonly 2 great, draft-free areas.

Bake Bread:

At the very least 30 mins prior to the dough is ended up climbing, put a 2-3 quart cast iron Dutch stove and also its cover ¹ on the facility shelf of the stove as well as pre-heat to 450 ° F.

When the dough prepares, thoroughly eliminate the warm pot from stove as well as established cover apart. Sprinkle cornmeal equally over all-time low of the Dutch stove. Carefully invert the dough right into the pot (if it occurs to touch the side and also stick, drink the frying pan carefully to obtain it focused and also unstuck). With a sharp blade, make 2 converging slashes in the top of the dough (each regarding 1/2 ″ deep as well as 3 ″ long).

Cover the pot and also cook for 30 mins, eliminate the cover as well as cook, exposed, till the loaf is deep gold brownish, concerning 5– 10 mins. Amazing for concerning 30 mins on a shelf prior to reducing right into the loaf.

Offer as well as Store:

The bread is ideal consumed cozy, concerning 30 mins after getting rid of from the stove. After the bread has actually cooled down a little, I suggest reducing pieces after that showering (or cleaning) each with a little bit of the garlic-infused oil as well as spraying a touch of Maldon sea salt and/or newly ground black pepper over top.

As soon as loaf has actually cooled down to space temperature level, cover with cling wrap as well as shop in the refrigerator. Reheat pieces in a 350 ° stove for regarding 5 mins. One more choice, brush with garlic oil and also position on a frying pan over tool warm to toast/warm.


¹ I utilize a Staub 2.25 Quart Round Cocotte– it’s much heavier than many cast iron pots as well as additionally enameled (though it does not look it), which calls for much less upkeep than a non-enameled pot. You might additionally cook it in a bigger pot; it’s the dish that the dough increases because provides its form, not the cooking vessel.
