There’s nothing like a good gluten free bread machine recipe to get the house smelling good. And to make you feel like you are on a “normal” diet!
About 18 years ago I learned that even though I liked wheat, it did not like me. And I have learned that I can never lose fat while eating foods that give me any kinds of health problems.
One of the toughest foods to do without is bread. But I have good news for you--even on a gluten free diet, you can bake good bread! Home-baked gluten free bread is much better than any store bought gluten free bread, in my opinion. And there is nothing like the aroma of bread baking, wafting through your kitchen...
Here is a recipe I have used many times for my family. I have adapted it from Nicolette M. Dumke’s book, *Easy Bread Making for Special Diets.

This recipe works in all types of bread machines, not just those with a gluten free cycle.
If you are like me, and have a family who only eats gluten free foods, you will buy a couple extra bread machines, to make more loaves at one time.
If this is your first time baking gluten free bread, you should know that it will not turn out quite as light and fluffy as wheat bread. But I think it is every bit as delicious!
1 1/2 cups water
3 Tablespoons oil
3 Tablespoons Honey
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 Tablespoon Xanthan Gum
2 3/4 cups brown rice flour (you can mill your own in a Vita Mix, from about 3 cups of rice)
3/4 cup tapioca flour
2 1/4 teaspoon Active Dry Yeast (Good yeast is crucial in gluten free baking. SAF is my favorite brand.)
Add ingredients in the order listed. Sprinkle the yeast very evenly over the other ingredients.
For a quicker (but heavier) loaf, run the “dough” setting for 20-40 minutes, till the loaf has risen fairly well. Stop the dough cycle, change the the bake setting (bakes for 1 hour). Total time in breadmaker will be about 2 1/3 hours, depending on how long you let it run in the dough cycle.
For a lighter loaf, bake on a whole-wheat setting (takes about 3 hours and 40 minutes).
*Note, some of the recipes in Dumke's book are not gluten free, and some of her advice in the early chapters about which foods contain gluten is a little off. If you are looking for solid, basic information about which foods are acceptable on a gluten free diet, ask someone who has been eating gluten free for a while.
