Gluten-free Bread Machine Recipe (Farmhouse Buttermilk Bread )

  • Liquid Ingredients:
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon milk into which 4 Tablespoons dry buttermilk has been dissolved.
  • Heat milk such that liquid mixture will end up at room temperature.
  • Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
I have used this recipe as a basic bread for a while and didn't yet see it on the site. It is tasty stuff and usually turns out pretty good. Thanks to my mom (Mary Powers) for all the tweaking and research done to produce this.

Mix all liquid ingredients together and pour into bread maker. Mix all the dry ingredients together, except yeast, and spoon over top of liquid ingredients in bread maker. Sprinkle yeast over dry ingredients and avoid letting it touch the sides of the pan.

On the Welbilt ABM3300, the settings are 'Basic', 'Light'. I believe this corresponds to your basic loaf settings on most machines. After bread is done, don't extract from pan until any 'Stay Warm' cycle is finished and the bread has cooled down.
