Now for the Recipe…
Here is a recipe for gluten free bread. I was able to make this bread using my bread machine, which meant eating homemade bread in a relative short period of time.
This bread had a crispy crust and was light and soft. Again, not something you get from the frozen loafs of bread you buy in the grocery store.
The key to making a good gluten free loaf of bread in a bread machine is to mix all the ingredients in a kitchen aid mixer first. Gluten free flours need a lot of mixing to incorporate them, and bread machines do not have enough power to do that.
This recipe is not my own but was handed to me by a customer at work. No name was attached so I take no credit for the recipe, but also am not able to give credit to the original author.
