Author Notes

My family eats a lot of bread. Peanut butter toast is pretty much a staple around here. So, I have long been on a quest to make an easy, tasty, delicious, gluten free sandwich bread that isn't too expensive to make. This is my creation. It is easy! It is very delicious, even the members of my family who can eat gluten, prefer it to glutinous bread, and it's not too expensive to make. I make several loaves of this a week. It keeps well, slices well and is just a great bread! —amelia.bentrup

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 tablespoon xanthun gum
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (around 110 degres)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (around 110 degrees)
  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup of warm water.
  2. Add the sugar to the yeast and water.
  3. Let stand for 10 minutes, or until yeast becomes frothy.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the remaining dry ingredients.
  5. In another bowl, combine remaining water with the apple cider vinegar, eggs, honey and oil.
  6. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well by hand.
  7. Add in the yeast/water mixture. Stir at least 50 times by hand.
  8. Spray a 9" loaf pan with gluten-free non stick cooking spray.
  9. Spread dough into pan. Dough will be thin and sticky, more like a muffin batter than a typical bead dough. Wet fingers (be sure your hands are clean of course) and spread the dough around the pan and smooth out the top.
  10. Cover and let rise in warm place for 2 hours or until the dough has risen to the top of the loaf pan.
  11. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes or until done.
