This bread recipe uses a flour made from chickpeas.  The great thing about chickpeas is not only the flavor but that fact that this flour is gluten free.  You can find chickpea flour in high-end grocery stores and it’s usually in the specialty baking aisle.

The appearance of this recipe is more of a flatbread rather than traditional yeast or cake bread.  In fact, neither yeast nor baking soda is used as an ingredient. The dough is made in the bread machine using either a pizza dough or pasta dough setting.  You could also use a cookie dough setting if your machine has one. If all you have is a basic dough setting that will work but take the dough out before the usual rising cycle starts at the end of the kneading cycle. 

The dough is poured into two circular cake pans that have been either buttered, or lightly oiled if you want to do a vegan bread recipe.  The chickpea bread is then finished in a conventional oven.  The timing and temperature are identified in the directions below.

You can top this bread with any topping you like.  This particular recipe has an Italian flavor and a topping of coarse bread crumbs toasted and crumbled using the extra chickpea flat. 

INGREDIENTS:
 1 cup of chickpea flour
 1 cup of water
 2 tablespoons of oil
 1 ½ teaspoons of Italian seasoning
 1 ½ teaspoons of chopped rosemary
 Pinch of salt
 ½ teaspoon of black pepper
 Toppings of your choice like crumbled bread crumbs from the other chickpea loaf, cheese of your choice, or garlic and onions.
DIRECTIONS:
1

Place all of the ingredients in the bread pan with the exception of the toppings. Select the dough cycle you happen to have on your bread machine and begin the cycle.

2

Pour the dough into two buttered or oil cake pans and let rest in the pans for 4 to 6 hours.

3

At the end of the resting period, top with your favorite toppings. Towards the end of this resting period, preheat the oven to
450 degrees Fahrenheit and once preheated -bake for 15 minutes or until the edges begin to brown.

4

Let rest for 10 minutes and then slice into wedges and serve.
