Simple Bread

I decided to have my first go at a gluten free bread that I can use for sandwiches. This recipe is really easy and tastes fabulous. I have made a honey wheat bread before I had to go Gluten Free but never attempted a simple white bread. This is another regular recipe that I used a gluten free flour on.

Here is what you need:

  • 3/4 cup warm water (temp should be 110 degrees)
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp shortening or butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • approx 3 cups of all purpose flour (I used Gluten Free Pantry Blend)
  1. In a measure cup mix the warm water and dry yeast until dissolved. Set aside
  2. In a bowl add salt, sugar, shortening and milk to bowl. Stir, then add the yeast/water mix.
  3. Slowly mix in 2 cups of flour.
  4. Slowly add more flour one tablespoon at a time, until the dough chases the spoon around the bowl (you may or may not need the full 3rd cup which is why it says to add in one tablespoon at a time. The amounts vary depending on many factors, including weather)
  5. Turn dough out onto floured board and knead, adding small spoonfuls of flour as needed, until the dough is soft and smooth, not sticky to the touch.
  6. Put dough in a buttered bowl, turn dough over so that the top of dough is greased. Cover and let rise in a warm spot for 1 hr
  7. Punch down dough and turn out onto a floured board and knead
  8. Form dough into a loaf and set in a buttered bread pan. Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 during this time
  9. score dough by cutting 3 slashes across the top with a sharp knife. Put in oven and bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Remove bread from pan and cool on a wire rack.

Some things to note: I skipped step 6 and 7. I also did not let it rise for 30 minutes after forming into a loaf shape. I have never had a gluten free dough rise when attempting stuff like this because the dough for me has dried out during the rest periods. Once I figure out how to get it to rise,  or at least make a bigger loaf, I will revise the directions. If you have any tips or suggestions feel free to leave a comment!

    I have not heard of them. We normally eat Rudi’s (my daughter loves their bread). We are actually going to be moving in a few months and I may have to start ordering my stuff from online so I will keep them in mind. Thank you for sharing!
