2 Tbsp
active dry yeast
1 Tbsp
1 1/4 c
water, warm
2 c
all purpose/gluten free flour
1 c
1/4 c
dry milk powder
2 tsp
xanthan gum
1 1/2 tsp
1 Tbsp
butter, room temperature
whole eggs + one white for glaze
1 tsp
apple cider vinegar
sesame seeds - optional


1Mix the yeast/sugar/water in a glass container to proof.
2Put flour, cornstarch, dry milk powder, salt & xanthan mixture in large bowl and stir by hand.
3In another bowl, mix whole eggs [save white per ingredients]/cider vinegar/butter.
4Now, in the large bowl containing Gluten Free flour mixture, add yeast mixture.

Next, add egg mixture.

Beat all until combined ... it will start to get sticky-soft.

Do by hand -- this crawls up the beaters with a hand-mixer.
5On a greased cookie sheet (large), spoon bread dough into 2 loaves.
If really sticky (mine was), put water on hands to form loaves.
Brush with the egg white you saved -- all nice and beaten foamy!
Cut slits across the bread.

Optional - sprinkle with Sesame Seeds
6Put into a COLD oven.

Set temp. to 425 deg.F and bake for 30-35 min.

IF it starts to brown too much, cover with foil.
7Remove to a rack to cool ...

Says 10 cool ..... well, it smells too darn good to let it sit there!

Pull off a hunk .. add butter or dip in Olive oil w/herbs!
