Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread Recipe

Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread Recipe

In my quest to find an edible gluten-free bread, this recipe emerged. It’s moist and has no cardboard texture! —Doris Kinney, Merrimack, New Hampshire
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 tablespoon Red Star® Platinum Superior Baking Yeast™
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup warm fat-free milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 2-1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1. Grease a 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan and sprinkle with gluten-free flour; set aside.
  • 2. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm milk. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the eggs, oil, vinegar and yeast mixture. Gradually beat in the flour, xanthan gum, gelatin and salt. Beat on low speed for 1 minute. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. (Dough will be softer than yeast bread dough with gluten.)
  • 3. Transfer to prepared pan. Smooth the top with a wet spatula. Cover and let rise in a warm place until dough reaches the top of pan, about 25 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes; cover loosely with foil. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
