Best Gluten & Dairy Free Sandwich Bread Yet

This is absolutely the best gluten free and dairy free sandwich bread I have made yet. I was playing around with various grains I had in my pantry and came up with this mixture. It rose nicely and had a great consistency. My daughter said "This is definitely an improvement." So this recipe is a keeper. I thought I would share with those of you struggling to make a good bread. It's super easy too - especially with a KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

Best Gluten & Dairy Free Bread
1 1/2 Cups White Fine Grind Rice Flour (I get mine at the Asian Food store)
1 Cup Brown Rice Flour
1/2 Cup Sorghum Flour
3 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
1 tsp Salt
1 Tbs Sugar
2 1/2 tsp Dry Active Yeast
Wet Ingredients
3 Eggs
1 3/4 Cup Warm Water (about 110 degrees)
Preheat oven to 175 degrees and turn off immediately when it reaches the temperature.
Mix all ingredients together in a stand mixer and let it blend for 3 mins. on medium high. Pour batter into a greased large loaf pan. Let rise in the warmed oven for 30-45 mins or until the batter is just above the top of the pan.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Take a piece of foil and "tent" it over the top of the bread for the first 45 mins. In the last 15 mins of baking (total of 60 minutes baking time) remove the foil so that the top of the bread can brown. My experience has been that my bread gets too dark and dries out if not covered for 3/4 of the baking time.
Remove from oven and cool. Slice and enjoy!
To your health.....gluten free!

This looks awesome. I love that it has easy to find ingredients and they are not the most expensive either. Here is one from a friend and it is very similar. I bet a blend of these recipes would make be yummy too. I am trying this one today. Thanks for sharing. Kellyc


Scroll all the way down to the original bread recipe (not the simplified one. We didn't like that one as well) but the original is by far my go to bread recipe. I do like to check out others though too. =0)
