Gluten free bread you can bake at home

Bread in all its guises may  have fallen out of favour over the past few years but it’s slowly making a comeback. Shop bought gluten free bread can be disappointing at times, but you don’t need to  abandon it completely. Why not have a go at baking some yourself? It’s easier than you think! We’ve got two great recipes for you to try, whether you’re looking to make yourself a sandwich  or something extra tasty to enjoy with a bowl of soup. Our healthy gluten free breads are tasty  and won’t leave you with a pile of crumbs the second you cut a slice. Both our cornbread and soda bread are bursting with nutrients and can help give your digestive system a boost.

Gluten Free Cornbread


  • 200g polenta
  • 284ml buttermilk
  • 25g butter
  • 3 medium eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 70g tinned sweetcorn, drained


Step 1 Toast the polenta in a dry frying pan for 4 minutes, until small sections start to turn golden brown. Step 2 Tip half of the polenta into a mixing bowl and add the buttermilk. Mix well before covering with a piece of parchment paper and leave to soak for two hours. Step 3 Preheat your oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Step 4 Melt the butter before adding it with the leftover polenta to the mixing bowl containing the polenta that’s been soaking in the buttermilk. Step 5 Add the salt, eggs, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and sweetcorn. Give it a good stir before transferring the mixture to an ovenproof frying pan. Step 6 Heat the frying pan on the hob and let it sizzle for five minutes before putting the whole pan into the oven. Bake for fifteen minutes, until the cornbread is firm in the middle. Step 7 Allow to cool before cutting into pieces.

Gluten Free Soda Bread

  • 2 tsps. xanthan gum
