This is a basic gluten free white bread recipes that is perfect for sandwiches and kid friendly. You can make it egg free using flax eggs. Simmer 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed with 1/2 cup warm water until thickened. You can even use applesauce to replace the eggs. 1/2 cup of applesauce is equal to two eggs. The bread is pretty versatile. It can be made with dairy using regular milk and butter or make it dairy free using dairy free milk of choice and either olive oil or canola oil. So make it according to your desires.
Whenever I make bread or muffins I will always add 1-2 tsp. of chia seeds. Chia seeds are high in Omega 3’s and it’s a great way to incorporate them into your diet. Kids won’t know they are even in there, so it’s kind of a great way to sneak them in. You can also use this basic recipe and make it an herb bread, by mixing in 4 Tbsp. mixed fresh herbs and then sprinkling the top with some dried herbs. Or you can baste the top with warm water or egg white wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds, poppy seeds or other seeds.
This recipe is perfect made in a bread machine, or make using a stand mixer like normal.

- Enjoy warm fresh bread, then store rest of the bread in airtight container or Ziploc bag on counter for 1-4 days. By the fourth day, you may want to warm in microwave for 10-20 seconds before serving.
- If you are preparing your bread for the next couple of weeks. Cool bread completely. Evenly slice the entire loaf. Place a small piece of wax paper between every two pieces. Place in Ziploc bag, removing as much air as possible. Place in freezer until ready to use. The wax paper will allow you to easy remove the slices needed for a sandwich without having to pry them apart with a knife. Just a simple trick.
Gluten Free Mama Recommends
KitchenAid Mixer ~ When making gluten free breads using a mixer, the Kitchenaid is the only way to go. It’s motor is the best for beating thick heavy batters and it will make your life much easier for baking gluten free breads and just about everything else. They will last forever too! I still have my 1st Kitchenaid mixer that I received as a graduation gift over 23 years ago! Click Here to purchase from Amazon.
Bread Machine ~ I have tried 3 different brands. I have used Oster, Breadman and Cuisinart. The Oster and Breadman worked but didn’t last very long. The Cuisinart I purchased from Costco and I have had it for 3 years now and love it. Click Here to purchase from Amazon.
Strong Rubber Scrapers ~ Gluten Free Bread batter is thick and sticky. So a good quality rubber scraper will make it easier to scoop and spread into bread pans. I recommend ones with really strong handles. Sure you can buy cheap ones, but if you break three cheap ones in 3 months, you could have invested in a good quality one that would last years.
