Gluten-free Porridge Bread

I couldn’t let bread week on the Great British Bake Off pass me by without sharing my latest favourite recipe – a gluten-free porridge bread!

Islandbell Gluten Free Oat Porridge BreadMy grandmother made this for me for the first time, and it’s my new favourite bread recipe. It might sound odd, but it is absolutely delicious – the oats make it smell like hobnobs out of the oven, and it’s at its best eaten fresh with some butter and marmite.

This bread has an absolutely fantastic crust on it - it's quite dense, but it's really comforting topped with some butter and is brilliant with soup!
Recipe type: Gluten Free
Cuisine: Baking
Serves: One Lb. Loaf
  • 300ml Yoghurt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1.5 Teaspoons of Milk
  • 500g Gluten-free oats
  • 2 Teaspoons of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon of Salt
  • Oat Bran (optional)
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Combine the yoghurt, eggs, milk, and oats with the bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  3. If you aren't a fan of a coarse textured bread, blend until fine in a food processor.
  4. Pop the mixture into a one pound bread loaf tin, and bake for 50 minutes.
  5. After 50 minutes, take the loaf out of the tin.
  6. Pop the loaf back in the oven for a further 10 minutes - this will create a really nice crust all over.
  7. Let cool, and eat with lots of butter!

The best part about this recipe for me is that it doesn’t taste like a sponge – which sounds odd, but a lot of gluten free bread is unbelievably bland and tasteless. This is anything but!

    I haven’t tried porridge bread but I make porridge muffins regularly! I’ll have to try this bread.

    • It’s really delicious! I haven’t thought of trying porridge muffins – that sounds like a good shout! x

    I’ve never tried porridge bread but this sounds delicious! I’m defo not a marmite fan ahahahaha but it sounds like it would be amazing with Nutella or some home made marmalade on top. I love the rustic finish on top, I want to try making this! Lovely recipe 🙂

    • Thank you Deanna! 🙂 I think it would be incredible with Nutella – I think it would taste like hobnobs! xxx
