I take zero credit for coming up with this beautiful design for raspberry holiday star bread. Of course, the original version is made with regular glutenous dough. No surprise that I wanted to see if I could do this in a grain-free version using the Chebe bread mixes. Guys, it worked!!
I’ve done some other recipes with Chebe and they have all turned out wonderful! It’s really an amazing product and great alternative to regular flours (and even gluten-free flours) because it is made from tapioca which gives it that chewiness we miss in gluten-free breads.
I would strongly suggest you go follow Zoe Bakes!
We have a local (and famous) baker here in Minneapolis named Zoe Francois. You should probably follow her on Instagram because she makes the most beautiful creations – and she makes it look easy.
Zoe is also the co-author of a few cookbooks, including Gluten-Free Artisan Bread in Five Minues A Day and the new Holiday and Celebration Bread in Five Minutes A Day (this is the one with the star bread recipe).
We have the gluten-free artisan bread cookbook and this would be a great addition to your collection, especially if you want to try your hand at making bread from scratch!
When Zoe posted this beautiful star shaped bread filled with raspberry jam on her Instagram account a couple weeks ago I immediately thought to myself, “I gotta make that!” It took a couple of tries with the Chebe bread mixes but I think I came up with a delicious sweet bread that would be a lovely addition on your holiday morning breakfast table.
This recipe has beautiful layers of raspberry jam, but I’d think you could really use any flavor of jam. There is always the option to make your own, but I really love the St. Dalfour brand of jam. For this star bread, I used the Red Raspberry flavor. I actually have a jar of this in my fridge at all times anyway!
Just sprinkle some sanding sugar and powdered sugar on at the end and you’ve got yourself a beautiful grain-free star bread.
My kids love this bread it because it’s sweet and it looks like a snowflake! That’s exactly why I love it, too!
