Gluten Free Bread For Toasting

Gluten free bread good enough to make toast is tough to find!

I decided to create a bread for those who avoid gluten that is both tasty and easy!

Gluten Free Bread RecipeThis one did not come out so well but it still tastes great! It looked exactly like this when it came out of the bread maker!

This one is made with all brown rice flour otherwise it was the same recipe as below.

I think that the torn look is due to the fact that I put the water in the bread machine first.

All the bread recipes that I looked at online prior to creating my own indicated that you should put the water in first.

I decided it must be a gluten free thing…. so I did it and the bread above is the result!

Gluten Free Bread Machine Recipe

If you have a bread maker it is not all that tough to make your own gluten free bread as long as you follow the directions on YOUR bread machine! Gluten Free Bread

1 tsp salt
1 Tbs. Xanthan gum
1-¾ cup brown rice flour and 1 cup millet flour
(or 2-¾ cup brown rice flour)
¾ cup tapioca flour

1-½ cup water
3 Tbs. grape seed oil
3 Tbs. honey

2 ¼ tsp. yeast

The method is to follow the directions on the bread maker!

Gluten Free Bread Machine Recipe

In my case the bread maker calls for putting all the dry ingredients in first. Then the wet on top. The yeast is then put into a little dispenser. I baked it on the basic setting for a regular sized loaf which was a 4 hour time.

Bread makers make bread making easy!

Take the recipe above, follow the bread machine instructions and play with added nuts and seeds to get the perfect loaf that you are looking for.

Gluten Free Bread Needs Xantham Gum

Gluten is what gives the bread structure after raising. Xantham gum is what keeps the bread from collapsing after it is raised.

This bread is good enough for toast or sandwiches!
