There is something about homesteading and homemade bread that just seem to go hand-in-hand. Making homemade bread has been a ‘longtime dreamy’ goal of mine {think Little House on the Prairie dreamy}. However, when our family went gluten-free that once dreamy homemade bread making mom vision I had kind of went out the window with our new living circumstances.

Well, my friends – I did it! I finally found a homemade gluten free bread recipe that not only tastes great, it’s quick, easy, inexpensive, approved by mom, and our four little monkeys. I have tested the recipe several times to assure its success and, without fail it has worked. Now, that said humidity can definitely fool with the consistency of the dough but, in the end the result was the same – homemade gluten free bread goodness.

I have made it with a pre-made gluten free flour mixture {like Bob’s Redmill} and my own flour mixture blend {equal parts sorghum, tapioca, and brown rice flour*} While, I do prefer my own flour mixture over the store bought the result was basically the same. I personally find the pre-blended mixtures always a little bit more unpredictable as most of them contain xanthum gum.

Easy Homemade Gluten Free Bread Recipe

Ingredients

  • 61/2 Cups Gluten Free Flour
  • 11/4 Tbs. Active Dry / or Quick Yeast
  • 1 Tbs. Kosher Salt
  • 2 Tbs. Honey
  • 3 Egg Whites*
  • 1 Whole Egg *
  • + enough water to make 31/2 cups*

Instructions

  1. Put the egg whites and egg in a liquid measuring cup. Add enough water to the measuring cup so that it measures 31/2 cups total {your eggs will be on the bottom/ water top}
  2. In a stand mixer use the paddle or hook attachment {I have used both with success} carefully blend your flour and yeast on low. Add the salt to your flour mixture.
  3. Blend all the dry ingredients for about 30 seconds {until well blended and smooth}
  4. While mixer is on low speed - slowly add your egg/water liquid mixture.
  5. Once all liquid is added - turn on 'high' speed for 30seconds-1 minute
  6. The dough will look a bit sticky {that's ok - remember this will not be like all the dreamy bread recipes you see on TV this will look and feel more like a biscuit}
  7. Transfer dough to a food storage container with a lid - cover the container but, not air tight {I crack our lid a bit} allow the dough to sit at room temp for approx. 2-3 hours. The dough will rise slightly.
  8. You can then choose to use the dough or store in the fridge for later (stores up to 5 days)
  9. Ready to bake? Lightly sprinkle parchment paper with a little gluten free flour and dust the dough lightly as well. Scoop out 1 lb piece of dough {one batch makes approximately 3 little loaves for our family} Refrigerate the remaining dough for future use in the days ahead.
  10. *Remember this dough will not be stretchy like you may be envisioning. Place your lightly dusted dough ball on the parchment paper, cover with plastic wrap, and let sit for approx another 30 minutes -1 hr.
  11. Preheat baking stone in oven at 450 degrees. Put a pan of water in the bottom broiler tray or bottom rack to help create steam - thus not drying out your bread.
  12. Once the dough has finished resting - carefully slash the top slightly and slide the loaf on the preheated baking stone. I use a flexible cutting board to slide mine in the oven.
  13. Bake for 40-45 minutes {upon testing knife should come out clean}
  14. Let cool to room temp before cutting {I typically will start our bread dough at lunch to have it ready for dinner}

We have been using this recipe for several weeks now with amazing results and I am sure you will find the same. It makes a great sandwich, toasts nicely, and stores amazingly well. The crust can be a bit hard at times but, the inside is moist and not dry like most store bought gluten free breads.
