Bread, Oh heavenly Bread!

I wasn't going to bake bread today but Heather over at gave me the itch. I tried a new recipe for Gluten Free Bread a couple of weeks ago and it is fabulous. Up to this point I had been making it in my bread machine but I got the courage to do as my mom did when I was a girl and put it in the oven. I was a little nervous doing this with a gluten free recipe but it looks amazing.
Isn't it beautiful? Do you just want to slice of a hunk and dig right in? Its OK I am not asking you any questions that I have not already asked myself.
It will go perfectly with the chicken and noodles that we are having tonight. I feel like Olivia Walton today. I really loved that show. I roasted a chicken, cleaned windows while the kids were napping and baked bread. Now all I need is Mr. Miller to come through the door. Ah, as the saying goes, "Life is Good!"

Gluten Free Bread

3 eggs

1 tbsp of cider vinegar

1/4 olive oil

1/4 cup honey

1 1/2 cups room temperature milk, I use skim but you can use buttermilk, rice or almond

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp xanthan gum

1/3 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup potato starch

1/2 soy flour

1 cup brown rice flour

1 cup sorghum flour

1 tbsp active dry yeast

Step 1: Place dry ingredients in large bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

Step 2: Place wet ingredients in smaller bowl and mix well.

Step 3: Combine wet into dry and mix well.

Step 4: Preheat oven to 200.

Step 5: Spray bread ban with Non stick spray and place bread dough into pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Be sure to spray wrap on side next to dough.

Step 6: Turn oven off and put bread in and set timer for 50 min. Go read, play with kids, I started a load of diapers. Come back and beat dough down and repeat process.

Step 7: Remove bread from oven and preheat to 350. Put bread in oven for 45-55min. Check with thermometer it should read 210.

Voila, GF bread that is amazing. Enjoy!


  1. looks delicious! I have been craving homemade bread since reading Heather's blog post also!

  2. OK, this looks amazing. I am going to try this over the weekend with a nice big bowl of soup. THANK YOU for sharing.

  3. Oh, I have a quick question.
    What would you substitute in this for people who can't eat soy?

    Also, I would love to link to this recipe in tomorrow's blog post :)

  4. Heather,
    I think I would replace with either the rice or sorghum. For us probably the sorghum. Let me know what you think. I would be honored for you to link me. Thanks. Have a blessed weekend my bloggin friend.
