Homemade Gluten Free Bread

This bread has a crisp crust on the outside and is perfectly soft on the inside. It's great for sandwhiches, french toast, as a side with your favorite soup, toast with jam or just a freshly baked goodie for your counter.

  • 3.5 cups GF all purpose flour* I used Namaste Perfect Flour
  • 1 ½ cups milk of choice warmed (dairy or nondairy both work great)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar + 1 tsp
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • ½ cup starch arrowroot, corn, or tapioca all work
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup warm water 105-110 degrees


  • Mix yeast in ¼ cup warm water and 1 tsp sugar set aside for 5 minutes. (If your yeast is good it will poof and double in size.)
  • Combine warm milk, oil, sugar, and vinegar in a heavy duty mixer.
  • Beat eggs and add to milk mixture and blend on low.
  • Add yeast and blend for a minute.
  • Add dry ingredients and combine for 3 minutes. Dough should come together but be sticky.
  • Pour into well greased 9x5 loaf pan. Oil fingers and smooth the top.
  • Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes in warm place. It should rise to just above the top of the pan.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Bake for 1 hour -  1h10m. To ensure it’s done, flip your loaf in your hand with a towel (because it’s hot). The loaf should easily come out. Then tap the bottom and sides, it should sound hollow.
  • Place loaf on a rack and let cool completely.


I did test this recipe with Bobs Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour and it worked well too, but have not tested it with any other flours so I cannot guarentee results but would love to know if you try a different GF blend and it turns out well. 
Keep wrapped up on the counter for 3 days and in the fridge after that. Best consumed within 6 days.
