Bread Machine Instructions

In the bread machine pan, add the olive oil or butter, and the flax mixture or eggs with the vinegar.  Then add Mama’s Almond or Coconut Blend flour, salt, sugar and xanthan gum.  Mix the salt and xanthan gum lightly in to the flour with a rubber scraper. Make a hole in the center of the flour, and add the yeast. Pour measured out warm water over the yeast and allow to rest for 1-2 minutes.  Then place bread pan in machine and set to the gluten free setting.  After the mix cycle is done, run your rubber scraper around the outside edges of pan to incorporate any dry ingredients that didn’t get mixed all the way in, and then smooth out the top.  Slash across the top with sharp knife three times and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Then allow the bread machine to finish the rest.
