There’s just something about homemade bread that is sooooo good!  The store-bought rice bread options are great when you are first learning to eat gluten free or to use as a supply of extra bread in the freezer for emergencies.  But the taste just doesn’t compare to this recipe.  Plus you will save a lot of money by making your own.  So ask for a breadmaker for your next birthday or splurge on one now – I guarantee that you will be asking yourself how you ever got by without one!


2 cups rice flour

3 Tbsp soy flour

1 Tbsp xanthan gum

1/4 cup sesame seeds (caraway or flaxseeds can also be used)

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

3 Tbsp canola oil

1 ½ Tbsp molasses

1 ½ tsp salt

1 large egg, beaten

1 ¾ cups lukewarm water

1 Tbsp active dry yeast


In a medium bowl, sift the flours with the xanthan gum. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, molasses, salt, egg, and water. Pour the wet ingredients into the breadmachine pan. Slowly tap out the bowl of dry ingredients into the breadpan, so that it rests as a layer on top of the wet ingredients. Make a small indentation on top of the dry ingredients (not so deep it reaches the wet layer) and add the yeast to the indentation. Insert the pan into the breadmachine and set on basic 1.5 lb loaf option to bake.

Makes 8 slices.
