Gluten Free Cottage Dill Bread
Cottage Dill Bread, another classic bread recipe that is perfect anytime of day. This is a perfect bread to serve at breakfast or brunch, or make sandwiches with it for lunch. Typically, Cottage Dill Bread is made in a round shape. To achieve the round shape for gluten free breads, bake in a 7 or 8 inch round casserole dish. A 8 inch round Corningware Dish works great or you could used a round springform pan, or deep sided pie pan.
The key to success with this bread is to start with room temperature ingredients. Also with any gluten free breads, be sure to be patient and allow bread to cool for at least 30-40 minutes after baking. This bread has a nice crust, soft, moist, and chewy texture inside, and stays fresh in a sealed plastic bag for up to 3 days. Enjoy!
