Sandwich bread

Bread has been this intimidating project!  Making gluten free bread seems more intimidating to me– you have to figure out the right texture, make sure it is moist, and most importantly- it needs to taste good!  If you ever had store-bought gluten free bread, you can understand this daunting task of coming up with something that is worth eating.   After some exploring and experimenting, I think I found something that works.  Of course, always remember to include the yeast!  (inside joke with my family!)


1 cup Sorghum flour

1/2 cup Almond flour

1/2 cup Sweet White Rice flour

1/2 cup Brown Rice flour

1/2 cup Tapioca Starch

1/4 cup whole flax meal

2  1/4 tsp yeast

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1  1/2 tsp xanthum gum

1 cup milk (room temperature)

2 Tbsp molasses

2 Tbsp honey

1/4 cup hot water

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

3 large eggs

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, flax meal, yeast, baking powder, salt, and xanthum gum.  Set aside.  In a separate bowl, mix together milk, molasses, honey, water, oil, eggs, vinegar.

Blend the dry ingredients with the milk mixture 1 cup at a time, beating for a minute each time.  After all dry ingredients have been incorporated, beat for 2-3 minutes at medium speed.  Cover bowl and let the batter rest and rise for  1 hour.

Scrape the down the bottom and sides of the bowl.  The batter will deflate.  Beat for about a minute.  Grease an 8 1/2 in by 4 1/2 in loaf pan.  Scoop dough into the pan, doming it in the middle.

Set in warm place or set in oven at the lowest heating setting for about 60-75 minutes.  Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Bake the bread for 45-50 minutes until it’s a deep golden brown.  Place aluminum foil over bread during the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning.

Remove bread from oven and remove from pan onto a cooling rack.  Cool completely before slicing.
