It is a bit grainy, will the vitamix make that much of a difference? Lastly, If I want fresh flour is my recipe off or spot on with the half cups? It tuned out light just like my normal bread. The gritty texture is different but doable if there is no way around it. I am going gluten free. So I am new to this whole thing.
I want to know if you can use this gluten free flour mix in other receipes that call for an all purpose gluten free flour mix. Other than the recipes on your site. Can you substatute another flour for the sweet rice flour that would work well. My Gluten Free Flour Mix can often be used cup for cup in your favorite recipes. However, not all recipes will taste or react the same during the baking process — some need modification. All the ingredients can be found on well. Thank you so much for this info!
I have many Canadian readers, so this will be such a big help! Hello Erika! Thank you for sharing this flour recipe with all of us! However, the prepared gluten-free flour mixes are so expensive I felt I had to use them sparingly. I ordered cases of the flour you recommended from Walmart. Thank you again, Erika, for taking the time to share your ideas! You are blessing so many with your thoughtfulness! Thanks for posting it! Hi Marc! God Bless!
Now if only the exchange rate would improve! I have some sorghum flour would that work? But, if you try it, let me know how it goes! I believe Mochiko in the white box in the Asian section is sweet white flour. Go to an Asian grocery store. They make desserts from it, and it will be far cheaper than brand names for GF diets. Sweet rice flour will be called glutinous rice flour. Can I substitute any other flour for the brown rice flour in your mixture?
Maybe an additional white rice flour? I know exactly what you mean! However, you could always try substituting it for another gf flour like Sorghum.
How to Build a Gluten Free Flour Blend From Scratch • The Heritage Cook ®
If you try it, let me know how it goes! Will try this blend as it does not have corn flour. Have plenty of zucchini so will look for your recipe for those. And also waffles. That will be a treat! I love this blog and being new to gluten free products myself I find so much of what I read here very helpful. Keep up the good work and thanks so much for all your incredible content!
But as many folks out there we get cannot tolerate Tapioca of any kind. It just makes us really sick! As you can imagine it is so hard to find gf breads or baked goods of any kind that do not contain that ingredient. I read somewhere that cornstarch is a good substitute for Tapioca flour.
Do you think it would work to swap those out? I think it also said that sometimes more baking soda or baking powder needs to be added but I have no idea how much is needed or if it would be needed at all. You can substitute the Tapioca Flour for Potato Starch not flour. I would not recommend cornstarch. I recently made my father-in-law who is gluten intolerant and has severe nut allergies an apple pie with plain Brown Rice flour and it was a nightmare. Sticky and hard to handle is an understatement. That is what my mother-in-law always uses and she says she has gotten used to how different it is to handle.
I feel like there is an easier way to make a gluten free pie, so I am glad I came across this flour mixture! I cannot wait to make them some! Thank you! I hear ya! Awaiting your reply…. There are many different Gluten Free Flours online, perhaps you can do a search for another one that omits them?
Hi Lisa! Both can be used as thickeners, but they do behave differently when baked. I hope that helps. Did you get approx grams per cup. I like to bake by weight. We tried it out, my boys liked it. There is a pixie dust mix to replace gums, we may try that, combination of psyllium, chia,flax. We have corn issues and xanthum is corn related. Hats off to you for having wisdom to know gut issues effect the brain and behavior. Have a blessed day. I also have corn issues.
Also please note there are currently only two brands of baking powder that do not contain cornstarch- Featherweight and Kinnickinnick. For other recipes beware that extractives such as vanilla are usually extracted in corn-derived ethanol. Flavorganics recently switched to a cane-based ethanol. Also, most cooking sprays contain alcohol. Thanks for the recipe. I look forward to trying it with guar gum. I hope this helps someone. God bless. I am glad to see that you mentioned about xanthan gum being a corn allergen.
For about six years my daughter was corn sensitive severe behavior problems and I had to make all her food from scratch avoiding any form of corn. So if xanthan gum is in this flour blend, it is NOT corn-free. OH MY! Thank you Thank you!!
Made this blend tonight and used it to make dumplings in chicken and dumpling soup I drop mine in like giant egg noodles. My son loved them and I got rave reviews from everyone else. See… I am the only one who is gluten free in my household. They put up with my substitutions and strange textures and funky cookies. I cannot wait to make the bread tomorrow!!! I did have to order my Sweet Rice Flour from Amazon though. Thank you thank you thank you! Cant wait to try it out more!!!!
Wheat Free Flour Mixes Breads and Pastry Recipes How To Be Wheat Free Book 2
My kids have been bummed lately about the lack of baked goods. I used to bake bread daily. Thanks for a great recipe! I am so glad that your family like it — hopefully you will also enjoy the other baked good recipes I have on the site! Erika, I am so happy I have found your site!
I am grateful to people like you who share their knowledge and discoveries with everyone to help us all live a gluten free, healthier life! Like other readers, I struggle with getting used to all the different substitutions and costs of the flours to continue to create wonderful meals and baked goods that we were used to before going gluten free:.
Recently I am undergoing testing for celiac or gluten sensitivity and the whole family has felt the change in the kitchen! I am going to try this flour mixture and hope I can once again feel great baking for my family:. I am really impressed. This flour is truly all purpose. For cookies I just use the flour cup for cup and add a little xanthum gum as indicated on the package. Great results. I especially love having the flour already mixed and on hand. It makes it a snap to put together a recipe. Hi, thanks for all the gf help! I have a large bag of that rice, and then I could save a bit.
Thanks so much. The Vitamix can definitely make flour from whole grain rice, but it will not be as smooth as the stone ground flours. If you find it too gritty to use, try re-processing the flour in smaller batches after letting it cool. I was wondering about Almond flour and Coconut flour. I recently discovered gluten is very bad for me.. I love making my own bread.
I made some today, but it is not gluten-free. I just eat the gluten anyway but i would like to try your fluffy gluten-free bread recipe. Perhaps I have some magic yeast. I have made it 3 times now. Although it tastes good and raises a little, mine never looks like the picture.
Be sure not to let it rise too long or the mixture will over-proof and not rise properly. If you are not using real eggs, or have a larger pan, then it will also spread out and not rise as high. Hope that helps! Quick question — I have an unopened bag of sorghum flour in my pantry and since these specialty flours can be quite pricey, was wondering if I could use that in place of one of the other flours in your recipe?
That way I can use it up AND save some money by buying one less bag of flour! My oldest of 3 also eats gluten free. We found the Sweet Rice Flour in the Asian food section, not in the gluten free aisle. Now, we always make sure the yeast blooms properly before putting it into a recipe. Thank you for the recipe! I use the flour for my regular baking recipes and it comes out just like the gluten goods.
So I make a lot of flour. My Vitamix is put in good use. Hi Erika, I am brand new to gluten-free. My head is spinning already with all the various baking options, so I am relieved to find your all purpose flour recipe made simple. Any thoughts? Thank you so much for this recipe! I just made Angel Food Cake today for Easter with this! No one could tell it was gluten free! Thank you for sharing your recipes. He is already dairy free to due our family being lactose intolerant. I am looking forward to trying out the flour mix and recipes. Am hoping that the homemade will be much better.
Homemade is always better, I even recommend a bread machine to make the bread. Me and my Dad are fine. Gluten free pasta is easy to find in a store, I always get the rice corn mixed ones, just corn is not so good. I do not like the texture of brown rice flour. It too fine gritty. What coul I use to substitute? Thanks, Kelly j. I used some chia and flex seeds to add in :- But I would like to have the white bread too :- thanks Lenka. Sweet white rice flour is actually really sticky! Me and my Mom were wondering where you get your xanthan gum and how much is it?
Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. So I really want to make half this recipe. I like to do. Thanks for your help!! Hi Erika, Thank you for such wonderful recipes. This sounds like an amazing flour blend, unfortunely we cannot use it. Have you taken any thought into a mix with Almond and Coconut flours?
I also use Glucomannan instead of Xanthan gum because it cause tummy troubles too. Please please! With your amazing knowledge can you help us out! Thank you, Tina. My grocery store had all the ingredients except for the sweet rice flour. Is there anything I can use in its place for the gluten free all purpose flour mix?
This is my very favorite GF flour blend for baking!! Its a 1 to 1 substitute in most recipes I have worked with and the results are moist and delicious! I made a GF and refined sugar free carrot cake for a birthday last week! My family was amazed at how well it turned out. I was wondering if I could substitute the white and sweat rice flour for millet, quinoa, or wild rice flours?
Made this mix today. Thank you for this recipe and the link to the jar. I ordered the sweet white rice flour online. I mixed mine in the kitchen aid mixer then did a little whisking by hand. I have used psyllium husk in quite a few recipes instead of xantham gum. Do you think that would work for this flour? Brownies, cookies, spatzle, dumplings and a few others. Have not tried cake yet…. What could be successfully used as a sub for the Brown Rice Flour?
My hubby has sensitivity to Brown Rice also. Hi, I read that you can substitute sorghum flour for the brown rice flour because it is considered to be in the medium weight flour category. Whenever I run out of one flour or starch , I jump onto the internet and google for suitable substitutes. Good luck! I made the bread receipe for pizza and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It came out like a thick pan pizza and it was yummy! I also made my chocolate cupcake receipe and everyone said how much better it was. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us.
I do appreciate it. This was such a great and easy recipe. Thanks for the post. I am about a month into my GF adventure, and was a bit overwhelmed with all the different all-purpose DIY recipes out there. Some recipes were just too fussy for my liking, or the ingredients were too expensive.
Our Costco sells Namaste GF flour, but it contains sorhgum, which I find a bit too sweet for bread and pizza, so I was looking to make my own flour mix without sorghum. This will save me even more money to be able to mill the rice myself. I can get huge bags of the different rice grains at Costco. I did not try milling my own tapioca starch, although it did say on the Whisper Mill site that it was possible.
Again, many thanks for making something daunting so easy! This is so good to see! My mom has be gluten free for 18 years, and still has not found a flour that she likes to bake with! We are for sure going to try it and let you know! Thank you for posting it! Love the recipy but my daughter bought me a HUGE bag of plain rice flour from her restaurant connection; do I need to use the different types of rice flour or can I just use my one???
How to Build a Gluten Free Flour Blend From Scratch
I too would like to know about using coconut and almond flours in your mixture. I am also new to going GF. I am also wondering what can be substituted for the brown rice flour. Has anyone tried substituting almond flour, coconut flour or double the white rice flour in this flour blend? Hi, Love the flour blend. Thank you Dreama. Has anyone tried this flour for making gravies, country gravy, white sauce, cream sauce, cheese sauce, etc….
Hi…Yes I have tried it on everything.. I actually use guar gum instead. I just love it. Any receipe that I had before going Gluten Free I replace it with this. Thanks so much, Deb! Hey, re you adding the guar gum in addition to the recipe for gravy , or do you mean that for the recipe itself you use guar instead of xanthum using no xanthum at all? Thanks, again, SO much for responding so quickly!!! I find that you do not have to add anymore of whichever you decide to use.
I hope this answers your question. I just love this mixture. I want to add that Guar Gum is an acceptable substitute on some recipes… but for recipes like my sandwich bread or recipes with a high rise — you may not always get the same elastic result or texture. Thanks, Erika, for that clarification!
Now I want to make 2 batches — one for high rise stuff and one for other stuff! Fun fun fun! I just tried your all purpose flour for the first time and substituted it into my MIL homemade pancake recipe. My searching has led me here. I look forward to trying your mix! Can you clarify the number of cups for Tapioca? You write a smaller weight than the other flours but the cups are bigger.
Is that correct? I would have expected the cups to be less than 4. If you use the whole bag on all of the flours it will come out great. I have tried alot of brands and I just love this recipe. Deb is correct… a cup of Tapioca Starch weighs less than a cup of the other flours. Erica, Thank you for this recipe. Do you think this would work okay as a substitution? Thanks, Lisa. I only use the sweet rice, not sweet whie sorghum, because I think it might be a different consisency. You can order it on-line.
I also buy all of my flours at Ocean State Job Lot if you have one. If you think your doctor will be tessting your son anytime soon — my advice is not to put him on a GF diet until he tells you to. If you are not going to have him tested than you can do it. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. You can typically find it at Asian Markets or in the Asian section of your local market or online at Amazon. I wish you the very best in helping your 8 year old son — hopefully the diet change will begin his journey to feeling better soon!
Thanks so much for sharing your all-purpose Gluten Free flour mix. My only concern is that with all those rice flours, it creates a flour mix that is highly glycemic spikes in blood sugar. Excellent and new point, Margaret, regarding the high glycemic index value. I have been reading every post, and I GET that the sweet white rice cannot be substituted, however it looks like the brown and white rices CAN be substituted. I am hoping that Erika or somebody will test that and report back, because its just too expensive to make a large batch which will upset my blood sugar stability.
I need to find a way to make this work!! I have the same question. Hope Erika or someone else can answer that for me. I am a type 1 diabetic and a celiac. This flour blend will have a very high glycemic index. Though its very helpful for people with only celiac and I am so happy to see you share it with people while most other people only want to sell their secret recipes which is also ok I guess , Is there any way you could help with something that can substitute so much rice flour and other starches?
Thanks again for sharing! Have you tried making your bread recipe in a bread machine? Are there any changes to the recipe when using a bread machine? I have a Zojirushi bread machine with a gluten free setting. But am trying to go gluten free now. Just want to thank you for this recipe as I am excited to try it. Our family has gone to a wheat free diet and as a result a gluten free. Cynthia, I would think a mixer would beat everything better than by hand. Also, I would be lost without my scale. You will notice alot of GF recipes calls for grams. I bought a cheap one and it works great. I would like to know about using coconut and almond flours as an all purpose gluten free flour mixture.
The question was asked several times, but not answered. Will I get the same result with just mixing coconut and almond flours? Thank you for the information. I am on Candida diet,and a breast cancer survivor, one of the concerns white rice turning into glucose which feeds Candida as well as cancer. Would you by chance know if white rice and sweet white rice flour will do the same? Is there anything I can do to prevent this? Thanks so much for any help. Hi Erika. I realize this is an older post, but my fingers are crossed that you still find it.
I did go a little longer, but found them to not be mushy, but slightly heavier and moister vs the original. Will this just be trial and error or do you find you have to go a certain amount of time longer or have you found any difference at all. The muffins generally take about minutes. This is just a big thank you. Just a few months ago we found out my daughter could not have gluten or dairy. We were looking and looking and we made your flour mix to make some bread and she loved it.
Hi Erika, can I substitute the brown rice flour with white rice flour doubling the amt. Or do I have to absolutely use brown rice flour? I am also just starting this new adventure due to a case of breast cancer. I have purchased brown rice flour, tapioca flour, and arrowroot flour starch , along with xanthan gum.
Thanks for any help! A future breast cancer survivor! I used this mix to make homemade noodles for my son who is Gluten intolerant. I wrapped it in plastic wrap and let it sit for 20 minutes. They turned out perfect. This made about a pound of noodles. I let some dry for an hour and then frozen them for later. These taste great! This is a wonderful flour mix for many things. Thanks for sharing. Thank you Janet the great comment! Do you think that your GF flour recipe would be able to be subbed for the ALL purpose flour in this recipe below?
Kind og wanna be sure before spending money on those you recommend. Yes, I do think that it would substitute nicely! The recipe sounds delicious, let me know how it goes! Would guar gum be appropriate subsitute? Hi Erika… When replacing the regular flour for your GF blend, do we need to add any more zanthum or guar gum? I did make a batch of cookies using your flour and did the rest of the recipie the same, and my husband loved the cookies. Why is it necessary to add the extra, or should there be more of soething else added.
Great question… it all depends on the recipe. Just whisked all the ingredients and put them into an airtight jar! Thanks for sharing this recipe! My husband is gluten free and I wanted to find an all-purpose flour recipe to have on hand so we could still use some of our old recipes. You referenced needing to make slight adjustments at times such as an additional egg or increased baking soda — how do you know when these adjustments are necessary? Lists with This Book.

What I liked the most about this cookbook is its approach to gluten-free cooking. Instead of just providing recipes, America's Test Kitchen explains what they tried that didn't work as they developed each recipe.

Because they explained what the challenges of each recipes were, what they tried, why they tried it, and how successful the results were, I learned more about gluten-free cooking from this cookbook than I'd learned in my previous 18 years of being gluten-free. While the baking recipes use a flour blend developed by America's Test Kitchen which can be made in bulk for less than buying flour blends , each recipe also includes adaptations for using two different commercially available flour blends.

Goodbye wheat, and good riddance--there really is something to this wheat belly business--but I honestly can't live on quinoa alone, and America's Test Kitchen says, yes, even though you shouldn't for reasons having nothing to do with wheat , you can still eat pancakes! And it's good!

America's Test Kitchen does this thing where they introduce each recipe by explaining the process they used to develop it, and thus share with you their toil and heartache. It goes something like this: "We wanted to maximize the flavor so we doubled the thing, but our first attempt came out too flat, so we added more stuff, but then it rose too much and collapsed, so we added an extra round thing for protein and lift and it turned out perfectly," and at first I'm like, Oh, what a happy ending!
B America's Test Kitchen does this thing where they introduce each recipe by explaining the process they used to develop it, and thus share with you their toil and heartache. But after half a book of that I shifted straight into Thank god it's you spending five weeks in the kitchen trying to perfect a gluten-free layer cake and not me because after the third time it didn't come out I would straight up murder the next person to set foot in my kitchen.
So, thank god for ATK, is all I'm saying. I love them in all their forms, so I was very excited to see that they'd turned their formidable attention towards cooking without gluten. This book has an emphasis on baking and things that normally depend on wheat flours, but there are also chapters on savory dishes that use rice and grains, sauces and pastas including homemade , and meatloaf and breaded items like chicken and pork chops.
I'm mostly here for the baked stuff, but it's nice to know I could bread something if I had to. The chapter on grains felt a little forced, but it does include good information about the various ways to cook them, and it doesn't take up much room. Their recipes are developed based on their own gluten-free all-purpose flour mix, which is a little different from others I've seen because it includes fat-free milk powder.
Most of their baked goods also call for xanthan gum, and they'll tell you when you absolutely can't replace or leave out the gum or milk powder. It talks about substitutions for these up front in the introduction, so there's not a lot of that in each recipe, but otherwise, it has all the information you need to know each time you need it, and all recipes have measurements by volume and weight. Each recipe also has a little GF Testing Lab chart where it talks about whether substitutions are an option or not and explains what'll happen if you use GF flour mixes from King Arthur or Bob's Red Mill; usually there will be textural differences, with some grittiness from Arthur and some level of bean flavor with Bob.
Sometimes they recommend you don't use either mix because the results were so poor. That more than anything convinced me to try mixing up some of their own flour blend. I trust ATK, and this book is a good resource with a lot of basic recipes for things I'm likely to make, like waffles, pancakes, pizza, some sandwich breads that look amazing, cookies, pies, cakes, and tarts. There are color photos for nearly every recipe, an index, the kind of methodical explanations you expect from an ATK publication, an introduction that goes through the science of baking with and without gluten and rates some common gluten-free products like bread, pasta, and flour mixes, as well as a guide to gluten-free flours, grains, and leaveners.
Assuming their flour mix works out, I'll definitely be buying this. Sep 19, V Mignon rated it it was amazing Shelves: own. It's not very often that I talk about the gluten-free cookbooks that I try out, but if I were to recommend only one book to the baker who is missing their cookies and crepes, it would be America's Test Kitchen's How Can It Be Gluten-Free.

You have to think by bizzaro baker logic with gluten-free recipes. Did you know that gluten-free flours don't absorb fat as well as wheat flour? No, I didn't either, and you'll find yourself using less butter than you could imagine. As for the recipes, I just baked a batch of chocolate-chip cookies that satisfied me on a level that has been foreign since I stopped eating gluten. Many gluten-free books focus solely on taste, sometimes on texture but not to a dedicated level as America's Test Kitchen.
Yes, you can have your cookies and your pies and your cakes again but you also won't feel as though you're consuming a lesser product. I can't even get over how perfect the texture of my cookies were. So thank you, America's Test Kitchen, for really figuring out how flours work and how they can benefit our baking. As well as allowing me to make cookies that taste as if the recipe came from my grandmother.

I've always loved how they get into the science behind their cooking and explain why recipes work. Even so, I've never bought a cookbook from them--been tempted in the past, but haven't done it.

I'm a baker at heart, and have missed making breads and goodies that I can partake in--or even simple things that suddenly became more complicated like fried chicken.
So far, I've actually tried three of the recipes--the chocolate chip cookies, the crispy chicken strips, and the fudgy brownies. All are superb. The flavor is great, and they generally have the look, feel, and taste of their non-GF counterparts. I'm very pleased. I'm excited to try more of the recipes out of this cookbook as I'm able. Up next will probably be their sandwich bread. As much as I like Udi's who they recommend highly , nothing beats homemade bread.
If you're new to the GF lifestyle, this cookbook is a must-have. But be sure you follow their guidelines to a T. Read the hints and tips, and the story behind the final product of the recipes. They'll save you heartache--or just gritty cookies. Mar 01, Sharon rated it it was amazing Shelves: cookbooks.

Then you get to the recipes, which have conversions for two different commercially available gluten-free flours and the ATK blend for which there is also a recipe. Each recipe has an explanation for how flavor and texture of the finished product may change using different flours, and for things that you can and cannot leave out. WIthout this book, I would not have known that xanthan gum a could be purchased as a consumer or b that it would be required to make many baked goods stabilize.
Nor would I have known which commercial products to try and which to avoid in my journey Highly recommended for those dealing with Hashi's, celiac, and other gulten intolerances. Mar 13, Meran rated it did not like it Shelves: educational , cookbooks , gluten-free. This cookbook, from the American Test Kitchen, got me excited.
I've been a long time fan of their Cook's Magazine. They flunked the gluten free test. The recipes I've tried so far are bland, and difficult to work up. It's not good to work hard and get so little back on a recipe. I'm still working my way through, since I stupidly made up a bunch of their flour mix.
The biggest drawback is one they think is their biggest plus: using psyllium husk instead of xanthan or guar gum. This item is used in This cookbook, from the American Test Kitchen, got me excited. This item is used in every product over the counter encouraging bowel elimination. So, every slice of their bread causes gut wrenching experiences in the bathroom.

Apr 30, Stephanie Mohler rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , read-in I like the cookbook enough to buy it, but I didn't cook anything in it yet! A lot of my family is going gluten free and this cookbook explain how to cook for them.
I don't know about you but I want to serve more gluten free meals. I don't believe that anyone in our family has an intolerance for gluten, but I do think the American diet is a little gluten heavy. There are two reasons I haven't implemented my plan previously. The first reason is simple and not really a huge contributing factor. Truth is, I'm an little timid to get started.
I've always cooked and baked with flour and the idea of ruminating off into new, unexplored territory is a little intimida I don't know about you but I want to serve more gluten free meals. I've always cooked and baked with flour and the idea of ruminating off into new, unexplored territory is a little intimidating. The second reason though is the biggest problem. And that is that when I stand up and wander about the kitchen, thinking about what to make for dinner, my mind goes blank and I can't think of something gluten free to make.
Stupid I know, but I'm being honest. It's there to give me ideas for every meal, and it serves to give me 'idiot proof' instructions that give me confidence. You don't need to read the above material but I thought it was interesting. THEN they give their own formula. And using White Rice flour, brown rice flour, potato and tapioca starch with a little nonfat milk powder --we can make our own blend.
No need to cut it. In fact, it will stale faster if you cut it. I am 19 and have been gluten free for three years due to celiacs. I am an avid baker and have made MANY loaves of gluten free bread, trying to recreate my previous favorite food. I have never succeeded at fulfilling the dreams of a perfect gluten free peanut butter and jelly sandwhich. But thanks to you my dreams have come true. If you follow the directions exactly, it comes out tasting like a perfect loaf of french bread: fluffy, flavorful, perfect in every way.
I cannot recomend this enough and am going to pass on your blog to all of my friends. This was my first attempt at yeasted GF bread, and it worked out great! On the third loaf I added 3 T of brown sugar in place of white sugar, 1 t of cinnamon and some raisins that I had soaked in rum overnight.
It turned out great! I know that some other recipes specify this. For this one, room temperature or cool eggs work just fine. When you use cool eggs, the rise time takes longer. This is my first attempt at break making and it was the most delicious bread ever! It also made some really great french toast! It was still great to toast and make a sandwich with, but just wondering what may have caused it to not be so dense so I can correct it?
It sounds like it rose a little too much. Next time, cut back on the rise time. That should solve this issue. I just found your recipe for gluten-free bread. I tried another one and yours is by far the best even the store bought are not as good as yours!!!! My husband who is not gluten intolerant said I am an angel he loves it!!!!! I bought the ingredients in bulk so saved a lot and it was cheaper to make it then to buy a loaf that is expensive. Hi Elizabeth,.
My sister in law put me onto this recipe. My kids love it, and eat it almost as fast as I can make it. Thank you so much for the recipe and the helpful, informative, and educational article. I made this recipe exactly as you laid out. It turned out perfect! It even looked like your picture. I made it in a Sun Oven. Crispy crust, and soft fluffy inside with lots of nice air bubbles to hold melty butter and jam. Thanks again. Here is a kitchen hack I tried that I think works great.. Turn your loaf of bread upside down to slice instead of right side up..
Thank you so much for this! I felt like I was at the end of my rope trying to find a corn-free-, gluten-free bread that would not fall apart! This held together well for me. I actually doubled the recipe and baked it in a large pullman loaf pan. I substituted guar gum for the xanthan gum because so many xanthan gums are derived from corn.
I also substituted lemon juice for the apple cider vinegar since my son reacts to vinegar, and it all turned out beautiful. My five year old loved it! Thank you, thank you! This recipe is fantastic! Thank you for sharing. Do you think the bread would still be good if I reduce egg to 1 or 2? I think it might work. The rise and flavor will be affected. If you try it, let me know.
And if the dough seems thin without the extra eggs, add a little more water. Outstanding directions and commentary! Really appreciate the time and effort you put in to make this so straightforward. I made it! I had one issue with the first loaf. I researched and had numerous information that said it should not have been bitter.
Then I thought it could possibly have been too much baking powder. I was going to do the millet with fresh ingredients and possibly reduce the baking powder a touch. That made one terrific loaf of bread, though.
Toast is great and a good possibility again as are many other things. Just fantastic. Your email address will not be published. Recipe Rating.

Author GlutenFreeBaking. Instructions Whisk together water and yeast in a small bowl. Allow to stand for five minutes. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine millet flour, tapioca starch, granulated sugar, xanthan gum, salt, and baking powder. Whisk to combine. Fit the stand mixer with the flat paddle attachment. Add the yeast mixture, eggs, oil, and vinegar. Mix on medium speed until smooth. Dough will be thin. Spread dough evenly into the pan.
Spay a piece of plastic wrap with nonstick cooking spray and place plastic wrap loosely on the pan. Allow dough to double in size. This takes about one hour. Remove plastic wrap from the top of the pan. This prevents the crust from burning. Remove bread from the oven and allow to cool for two minutes. Transfer bread to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
Store bread on the counter for up to three days or freeze sliced bread, wrapped in freezer wrap with waxed paper between each slice, and placed into a freezer container, for up to six weeks. Recipe Notes This easy recipe for gluten-free sandwich bread contains no corn, dairy, or soy. Comments Does the millet flour give it a slightly bitter taste? I know this is oddly specific. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
