Are You Looking For Gluten Free Bread Recipes?

Baking gluten free breads might take practice for you to be totally happy with the end result. You'll want to make notes so that you can tweak recipes to your liking the next time you make the same recipe. You'll also find that you can use basic recipes and change them around to make what might seem like a totally different recipe. 

Obviously, the homemade gluten free bread recipes will call for gluten free flour. Here is a list of those that are tried and true.

You can find gluten free flour at most good grocery stores. You might find it in the health food section, or it might be on the shelf with other flour products. And, of course, you can also order gluten free flour online.

A Recipe For Sandwich Style Bread - 1) Blend together: 6 cups gluten free flour, 6 teaspoons sugar, 4 teaspoons instant yeast, 2 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons xanthin gum

                                                                 2) Mix together: 2 cups warm milk, 8 tablespoons softened butter, six large eggs

                                                                 3) Combine all the above together, put in two greased baking pans and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.

The great thing about this basic sandwich bread recipe is that you can use it as a base for other breads. For instance, add grated cheddar cheese to it and you'll have a wonderful cheese bread bread to go with soups and salads.

​A Recipe For Coconut Bread - 1) Blend together: 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, 2 cups gluten-free flour, 1 cup tapioca starch, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

                                                     2) Mix together: 2 cups sugar, 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk, 1 cup vegetable oil, 2 teaspoons coconut extract, 6 eggs.

                                                      3) Combine all of the above together, put into two greased baking pans and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour 

This recipe can be used as a base for other sweet breads, too. For instance, omit the coconut, the coconut milk and the coconut extract and substitute them with raisins, almond milk and vanilla extract.

Like regular breads, gluten-free bread can be frozen. Consider using the first loaf for your family and freezing the second loaf to use later, or to give to friends.
