This is an easy all-purpose bread recipe. It’s so simple to just stick a bread in the bread-maker and have it come out risen and warm three hours later!
- -Wet ingredients-
- 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
- ½ cup oil
- ½ cup water
- 1 cup milk minus one tablespoon
- -Dry ingredients-
- 2 cups rice flour
- ½ cup potato starch
- ½ cup tapioca flour
- 2 tablespoons xanthan gum
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- In a small bowl, beat eggs with fork, until whites and yolks are well blended. Once the eggs are beaten, add the oil, water, and milk. Mix the three in with the eggs, until all are blended. Pour the wet ingredients out of the bowl, and into the bread maker pan. Wash and dry the empty bowl. Pour the rice flour, tapioca flour, and potato starch into the clean bowl, and mix the three together. Add the xanthan gum, sugar, and salt, and the yeast, and stir them all into the dry ingredients. Then, pour the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients, and stir with a rubber spatula. Place the bread pan in the bread maker and set it to your chosen cycle. Press start, and let cook until bread maker says 0:00
About which bread-maker cycle you should use:
I always used the “Basic” cycle on our bread machine, which was three hours long and had a 1 hour knead, 1 hour rise, and 1 hour bake time. If your bread maker has a gluten-free cycle, you should probably use this cycle. Whichever option you choose, it’s important that you have a long knead time (at least 45 minutes) and only one rise. If it has more than one rise, the bread maker will allow the dough to rise, then knead it again, and then let it rise again. This is good for gluten bread, but gluten-free bread only needs one rise.
NOTE: You can also make a bread before you go to bed, and have it done in the morning. Just do not add the yeast right away, instead pour the flour mix into the wet ingredients without it, make an island out of the dry ingredients, then add the yeast. Adjust time on bread maker, to however many hours it will be before you wake up. You can also make this bread in the oven, just proof the yeast, (see “tips” section.) and then add it to the rest of the ingredients, and let the bread rise for at least thirty minutes.
