gluten-free breadDear readers, we have already made so much progress toward being able to eat whatever we want. I’m sure many of you have bread machines and shelves lined with GF bread machine bread mix. That is an easy, satisfying route to take for fresh, delicious GF bread. But sometimes you want to get your hands dirty. Sometimes you want the satisfaction of kneading and punching that dough yourself and of watching that oddly-shapped boule rise gloriously golden in the oven. If that’s the case, read on. Gluten-free bloggers around the Web have worked their hearts out to find the ultimate gluten-free bread recipe, and they have graciously shared their findings with the rest of us. Here you can find a comprehensive list of GF bread experiments:

  • Natalie from Gluten Free Mommy came up with a loaf of brown rice flour, GF oat flour (or quinoa flour), millet flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour (or cornstarch), and xantham gum.
  • Mary Frances of Gluten Free [Cooking School] has photographs comparing her bread coming out of the bread machine or coming out of the oven. Her sandwich bread contains brown rice flour, cornstarch, xantham gum, sorghum flour, and masa harina or corn flour.
  • Looks Good in Polka Dots makes gluten-free casein-free Amish Friendship bread with sorghum flour, cornstarch, white rice flour, tapioca flour, and xantham gum.

  • Elizabeth Barbone of Easy Gluten-Free Baking invented a pretty simple recipe containing little more than brown rice flour, cornstarch, and xantham gum. As a bonus, she gives us a cinnamon raisin variation!
