orange honey bread -- gluten free + dairy free

happy wednesday everyone! the weekend is within reach! by now, you may have noticed that i've not blogged about gluten free/dairy free breads with yeast. surprise! if you hadnt already guessed i'm also completely yeast free - cant look at the stuff without having an allergic reaction.

that being said, all of the bread recipes that i've featured are quick breads. essentially, a quick bread is a one that doesnt contain yeast, instead it employs chemical leavening agents - baking powder and baking soda. the right combination of the two will give rise (no pun intended) to your bread. quick breads tend to be a bit denser than your typical sandwich bread, but are a great alternative to eating no bread at all!

i've yet to attempt a savory quick bread yet - and plan to do so in the near future. for the time being check out this semi-sweet orange honey bread. 

please take a few minutes to stop by these blogs that i've found great recipes and inspriring home projects on!
my simple home life

orange honey bread
  • 1 c honey
  • 4 lrg eggs
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 1 c a/p gluten free flour blend (without guar gum - if yours contains guar or xanthan do not add the extra listed below)
  • 1/2 c sorghum flour
  • 1.5 tsp guar gum
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • palm shortening - to grease pan
preheat oven to 350 degrees with rack in center of oven. grease a loaf pan with palm shortening. in a bowl whisk together honey and eggs. stir in orange zest. in a separate bowl sift together a/p gluten free flour, sorghum, baking powder and baking soda. slowly add dry ingredients into egg and honey mixture. pour mix into loaf pan and bake for 30 minutes. check for doneness with a wooden toothpick - if it comes out clean its done - if not bake another 5 minutes, then check again - repeat until toothpick comes out clean. allow pan to cool on cooling rack for 5 minutes, then turn bread of pan and allow to cool completely on cooling rack.

i love to serve this semi-warm. i toss my slices into the microwave for around 10 seconds then spread a bit of non-dairy margarine and jam on top. cheers!


  1. This looks super as always! There is something about fresh bread cooling on a wire rack that seems so inviting. Must be memories of my mom baking when I was a kid...Thanks for linking up to Foodie Friday.

    Oh, and if you haven’t done so already - don’t forget to pop on over to Little Brick Ranch to enter the Joey Totes Earth Day GIVEAWAY!!!

  2. Yum! This sounds delicious! I love honey breads. We have several local farms that produce honey and I love experimenting with the different varieties. This looks like a must try. Thanks for sharing.
