Bread Srsly’s Gluten Free Sourdough Bread Recipe


If you would like to try making Bread Srsly’s sourdough bread, this is a great starting point. The point of this recipe is to inspire you to experiment in your kitchen. Making gluten free sour dough bread takes a lot more time than regular breads. You need 3-5 days to create a starter for the first time. (Once you have a starter, if you keep it well fed, you can use it to start baking new sour dough breads right away.)

Starter Instructions

  1. Mix together equal parts of a flour blend and water. (Stay away from pure starch sources such as tapioca and potato.) Leave it in a bowl at room temperature. Cover the bowl with a towel.
  2. Every 8-12 hours, (2-3 times a day) add a little more flour and water.
  3. After 3-5 days, your mixture should smell sour and have bubbles. Congratulations! You are almost there.
  4. Once your mixture is bubbling, add some to your bread mix. Do not use any yeast.
  5. Let rise for at least 12 hours.
  6. Once the bread has risen, you have your starter!

  4. Hi! So i know most people can do this, but I have never done sour dough. Can you give more specific measurements on the starter? I just dont want to mess it up. Thanks!

    • Hi Bekah, you can’t mess it up. I asked Sadie about why she said to use equal parts. It really depends on how much starter you plan to use. For example, will you be making the sourdough this one time, or will you make several loaves over the course of a few days. You only need 1/2 cup of the starter to make one loaf of sourdough, so 1/4 cup gluten free flour blend (with no starches) and 1/4 cup water should be a good measurement to start with. Good luck and please let me know how it turns out.

  5. Hello there!

    You recipe looks interesting! I’ve made sourdough bread before using my own starter, and I was wondering if there’s a way for the bread to not turn out too sour. Also, I have a lot of brown rice. Can I use it instead of the white rice, and maybe add a bit more starch or something else? Thank you!

    • Hi Beth, I am honestly not sure about how to make the bread less sour. The sour taste comes from the fermentation of the starter. I would say to experiment with the brown rice. I have not tried it any other way. Just be sure not to use starch in the starter. I would love to hear how it turns out.
