This gluten free bread recipe makes a light and fluffy loaf that is delicious!
A reader recently let me know that she had tried my gluten free dinner roll recipe as bread and she loved it. After she left the comment I realized that I had never shared the bread version with you. I can’t believe I have never shared the bread version because I make it all the time. The reader was not the only one that loves that recipe as bread. My family loves it that way too.
I recently made this bread and was able to get a few pictures before my family devoured the loaf. It really is that good. A loaf does not last long at our house.
See how light and fluffy that is? It really is delicious. And not only that it is easy to make.
This gluten free bread recipe is simply my gluten free roll recipe made into a loaf of bread. I love the basic dough I use for my gluten free rolls and I know some of you do as well. After posting my roll recipe I did a follow up post on gluten free brands and if they matter. For this recipe I used all Bob’s Red Mill brand products and it has turned out great every time.
If you are missing bread this gluten free bread is a must make. I have made this so many times over the last year. It is one of my favorite gluten free doughs to work with and works great for bread, rolls, monkey bread, and even pizza. It is a great gluten free dough.
Light and Fluffy Gluten Free Bread Recipe
Makes one loaf
- 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
- 2 cups warm water (about 110 degrees)
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons xanthan gum
- 1 1/4 cups white rice flour
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 3/4 cup potato starch
- 1/3 cup tapioca starch
- In the bowl of a mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar and let sit for about 5 minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients, adding the xanthan gum last. Mix using the dough hook of an electric mixer.
- Mix for about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl a few times. You do not knead this like a regular bread dough, but it does need mixed well and I have found about 5 minutes is a good time.
- Spread dough into a greased loaf pan.
- Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours.
- Bake at 375 for 30 – 32 minutes.
