Instructions
  1. Prepare your pans by spraying them with oil. See notes on pans below.
  2. Put the cup of almond milk in a glass measuring cup and add the vinegar and stir well. Let this sit while you prepare the rest of the batter.
  3. Measure the gluten-free flour, cornmeal, coconut sugar, xanthan gum, soda and salt into a large bowl and whisk together. Add the raisins and stir well to coat with the flour mixture…this will keep the raisins from just all settling to the bottom of the can.
  4. Add the molasses to your now sour almond milk and stir well.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until fully incorporated.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Place a greased piece of tinfoil loosely over the tops of the cans.
  7. Place a trivet upside down in the liner of the Instant Pot. Place your pans into the liner, and then add 4-6 cups hot water, bringing the water up to near halfway up the side of the cans.
  8. Lock on your lid, make sure you toggle is set to sealing, and set manual/pressure cook to 40 minutes. After the cooking is done, allow for a ten minute natural pressure release. Take the cans out, remove foil, and check for doneness by inserting a toothpick or skewer into the end of the loaf. If it comes out clean, remove the loaf from the pan and set aside to rest and cool for at least ten minutes.
  9. If the bread is still a little doughy, return to the pot, covered with foil, for 5 more minutes.
  10. Let cool at least 15 minutes after your take the bread out of the pan so the bread can “set up” a bit. Serve warm with butter…this bread is excellent toasted.
