  1. Preheat the oven to 200C fan bake.
  2. Line a loaf pan with baking paper.
  3. Combine the teff flour and baking powder in a large bowl.
  4. Form a well in the centre of the bowl and add the water, olive oil, eggs and apple cider vinegar.
  5. Mix until the ingredients are well combined. Note that the consistency will be runnier than normal bread dough – this is normal.
  6. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and place in the oven.
  7. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.

As this charcoal bread recipe is gluten-free, the bread is more dense than you would expect. Slice into thinner slices, and enjoy with butter or avocado. Yum!
