Brown Bread for a Bread Machine

YIELDS:  1 loaf

TIME: 2 hours


  • Dairy Free
  • Soy Free


  • 2 large eggs at room temperature

  • 1 1/3 cup warm water

  • 3 Tablespoon canola oil or olive oil

  • 2 teaspoon cider vinegar

  • 2 Tablespoon honey

  • 1 cup brown rice flour

  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/4 cup corn starch

  • 1 1/4 cup tapioca flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar

  • just shy of 1/4 cup GF flaxseed meal

  • 1/2 cup dry milk powder (for dairy free use Vance's DariFree)

  • 2 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons GF yeast for bread machines


  1. Add the eggs (lightly beaten), water, canola oil, cider vinegar and honey to the pan of the bread maker and stir until combined.
  2. In a large bowl whisk all of the dry ingredients except the yeast together.  Make sure you use grains that are labeled gluten free.   Add the dry ingredients on top of the wet ingredients.
  3. With your finger make a depression in the center of the dry ingredients and add the yeast.
  4. Set bread machine on the gluten free cycle or program for the least number of rise cycles.  If your bread machine is programmable, program your machine for Preheat 5 minutes, Knead 25 minutes, turn OFF Rise 1 and Rise 2, Rise 3 for 55 minutes, and Bake 50 minutes.
  5. Once it starts mixing, scrape the sides of the bread pan with a rubber spatula.  Make sure all dry ingredients are incorporated.
  6. When the bread machine is finished, let cool in the pan for about 5-10 minutes.  Sometimes it helps to lay the pan on its side for a few minutes, then shift to the other side for a few minutes.   Gently remove the bread from the pan after it has cooled a bit, then cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
