Dry Ingredients

2 1/2 cups teff flour
1 1/2 cups tapioca flour
3 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon Egg Replacer
2 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
2 1/4 teaspoon dry yeast granules
1/3 cup toasted sunflower seeds

Wet Ingredients

1 egg plus 3 egg whites
1 teaspoon dough enhancer
2/3 cup GF sourdough bread starter (Dee's original found in cookbook)
6 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups lukewarm water
1/4 cup (more or less) lukewarm water, as needed

Grease two 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pans and dust with rice flour. (I don't grease. I just line with Release foil).

In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In the bowl of a mixer, mix the wet ingredients and 2 cups of the water.

With the mixer turned to low, add the flour mix a little at a time. Check to be sure the dough is thin enough (like thick cake batter). Add more of the reserved 1/4 cup water or more as needed. Turn the mixer to high and beat about 4 minutes.

Spoon the dough into the prepared pans, cover and let rise in a warm place about 35-60 minutes. It should rise to double in bulk (but no more). Do not let it rise too much as it will fall and the top will sink.

Bake at 400 for 50-60 minutes, covering with aluminum foil AFTER the first 10 minutes.

Personal Notes:
This tastes like a heavy dark wheat bread.
This recipe is from Bette Hagman's "The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Comfort Foods" cookbook. Being a Seitz, I made some changes as a recipe is only a suggestion.
I used my original "Herman" starter that I had used for years (See Sourdough Bread Starter--Dee's Original). The Potato Sourdough Starter listed in this cookbook is one you can also use.
