Gluten Free White Bread Recipe for Bread Machine

by Heather Smith on October 20, 2012 · 10 comments

Although we don’t have a gluten allergy, we have been reading up on the benefits of eating gluten free. Loaves of bread from the store can be pricey, so we thought we’d give a recipe a try… and it turned out good!

I couldn’t wait to share it with you….


Gluten Free White Bread Recipe for Bread Machine
This is an adapted recipe. The original is quoted and I put our alterations in parentheses. The original recipe was too moist so I have added 1 cup total more flour to the original (all of the +1/3 cup). Our loaf turned out fabulous.
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1½ cups buttermilk, at room temperature (we used almond milk)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon xanthan gum
  • ⅓ cup cornstarch
  • ½ + ⅓ cup potato starch
  • ½ + ⅓ cup soy flour (we used tapioca flour instead)
  • 2 + ⅓ cups white rice flour (we used brown rice flour instead)
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
  2. Select the sweet dough cycle (my machine did not have a sweet dough cycle so I used french). Set your machine on 1½ or 2 lb loaf. Five minutes into the cycle, check the consistency of the dough. Add additional rice flour or liquid if necessary.
  3. When bread is finished, let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before removing from pan.
  4. This is a great base bread for other loaves like cinnamon swirl.

Awesome job! It can be hard to find a good gluten free bread! I may give this a try too even though no allergies in this house.

Looks awesome I am going to try it but one question does the cornstarch make it taste weird? One recipe I tried that had cornstarch in it made the bread taste off.

The recipe calls for potato starch. I didn’t notice a huge difference, but I am just beginning with gluten free products. If it helps, the loaf disappeared before the end of the day :).

Wow it looks really good. I might just have to try this recipe too. Every other recipe I have gotten from you has been a real winner with my family and friends. Thanks for sharing.

It’s a cold rainy day here today. I haven’t used my bread machine in months… but I think you just talked me into it! :)
