Gluten-Free Bread in Cuisinart Breadmaker

Gluten-Free Bread in Cuisinart Breadmaker

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk (room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted and cooled to room temprature)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups Baking Free™ gluten-free All Purpose Flour (for best results weigh flour=372 g)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (flour has enough for most baking, but bread needs this addition)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (one envelope)

Directions

Step 1
Place all the liquid ingredients in the Cuisinart breadmaker bowl, fitted with the kneading paddle.
Step 2
Place the flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking soda and sugar in another bowl. Gently whisk the dry ingredients to mix evenly.
Step 3
Scoop the dry ingredients into the breadmaker bowl on top of the liquid. Do not mix with the liquid.
Step 4
Make a dent in the top of the dry ingredients and spoon the yeast into this dent.
Step 5
Place breadmaker bowl into the breadmaker as directed by manufacturer. Lock in place.
Step 6
Press the menu button to select a 2 lb. loaf, dark crust color and select the gluten-free program. This is not a 2 lb. loaf, but I find that this setting gives the best golden crust and best baking time.
Step 7
Press the Start/Stop button to begin program. While dough is being mixed, scrape the sides of the bread pan with a rubber spatula to fully incorporate ingredients.
Step 8
When cycle is complete, remove the bread from the bread pan and place on wire rack to cool completely for best slicing results. Makes 1 loaf.
