Oh No I need a lunch - GF Sandwich Bread

I don't know what I was thinking. I have to make the kids lunches and I had nothing to put in them. My son left his lunch box at school so "ice packed" items were out of the question. So I decided to try a new recipe for some GF bread. I think this loaf cost about $3.50 to make. A far cry from the almost $6 my other options are. Some are even more! This was so easy too.

Easy Gluten Free Sandwich Bread

Dry Ingredients
2 1/2 cups Organic Brown Rice Flour
2/3 cup non-GMO cornstarch
1 Tablespoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon Celtic Sea salt

Wet Ingredients
1 1/2 cups milk (warm not hot)
1 packet active dry yeast
2 Tablespoons Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (or vegetable oil)
2 large free range eggs

1. In a small bowl, combine milk and yeast.
2. Place all dry ingredients in a mixer bowl and wisk through to mix together.
3. Add yeast mixture, coconut oil and eggs.
4. Using an electric mixer, mix dough for 2 mins on medium.
5. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with butter.
6. Spread batter evenly into the pan.
7. Cover pan with greased saran wrap.
8. Allow dough to rise for 1 hour in a warm place.
9. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
10. Bake dough for 50 minutes.
11. Remove bread from oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
12. Ater five minutes, turn bread out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes one 9x5 loaf

**Note: You will see in my photo there are blocks of butter on the dough. I did this to add flavor. I cut a small slit in the risen dough and plopped them on top. Yummy!

Now to make some lunches for my kids. Crossing my fingers that this bread goes over with them.

This look yummy... definitely going to try it. Do you use a stand mixer with bread dough hooks, or just a regular hand mixer?

It was good but the one I made a week later - sorghum flax was even better. I use a Kitchen Aid Mixer.
