Gluten Free Bread Machine Recipe for White Bread

Gluten Free Bread Machine Recipe: White Bread

In preparation for summer, I decided to start working on a gluten free bread machine recipe, and I’m so glad that I did! I have on old version of the Breadman Ultimate, Model No. TR2200WWC, similar to the TR2200C. If I recall correctly, I purchased it around 2004, well before they made bread machines with a gluten free cycle. One thing great about the Breadman Ultimate series is that they are programmable so that you can skip steps or set the length of time, i.e., the first and second kneads, shape (punch), bake and rise, even add ins. If you have a newer model, perhaps it will turn out well using the gluten free cycle.

UPDATE: One of my recipe testers made this bread in her Hitachi bread machine without a gluten free bread setting. She used the Bread button and “Dark” setting. She stopped the baking cycle when it still had 40 minutes left. She loved it!


This was my second attempt. The day before I had a huge failure, but I was trying to make a bread without tapioca or potato starch. Though this one turned out a bit starchy, the flavor is absolutely incredible, and there was absolutely no shrinkage once it cooled. It can definitely be used for a sandwich bread. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Meanwhile, I’ll be working on improving the starchiness. I’ll probably skip one of the kneading steps to begin with, as this may have made the dough too starchy; and because I could still smell yeast after it was baked, that tells me it rose too long. I will also be working on other gluten free bread recipes for machines soon. I especially want to try substituting the tapioca starch for more cornstarch since I’m allergic to tapioca. Meanwhile, this bread is so much better than any other bread I’ve made thus far in a bread machine. I hope you enjoy it for now.

Gluten Free Bread Machine Recipe: White Bread

A gluten free bread machine recipe for white bread that is simple to make, is full of flavor, and makes a perfect sandwich bread.


  • 1 1/2 cups water, at room temperature (80 - 85°F)
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil (I used light EVOO)
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 3 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour/starch
  • 2/3 cup non-fat instant dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch (or more potato starch for corn-free)
  • 1 Tablespoon xanthan gum (or guar gum for corn-free)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast


  1. Add ingredients to the pan of the bread machine in the order in which they are listed.
  2. Place pan in the bread machine securely.
  3. If you have an updated model with a gluten free setting, choose it; or program the machine for White Bread, 2 pounds and your desired crust color: light, medium, or dark. (I used medium.) The exact white bread settings for my machine are (in minutes): Keep Warm: 0; 1st Knead: 5; 2nd Knead: 20; 1st Rise: 40; Punch: 1; 2nd Rise: 24; Shape: 1; 3rd Rise: 50; Bake: 50 minutes = 3 hours, 18 minutes.
  4. Once the first kneading begins, using a rubber spatula, scrape sides and bottom of pan to help incorporate flour. You won't have to do this again. (See photos below after 2nd knead and 3rd rise.)
  5. Once baked, remove pan using pot holders; remove bread from pan, remove paddle, and immediately transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely, about 2 hours.
  6. Slice thinly with serrated knife, electric knife, or electric slicer.

  1. Wondering if I can replace the honey with sugar or rice malt syrup. We are following FODMAP and honey is on the no go list.

    1. Hannah,

      I haven’t tried it dairy free yet, but I think it work almost as well. Use rice milk or water. Rice milk will help leaven it more than water. The protein in the dairy milk helps leaven it. So rice milk is the best replacement as it acts like rice flour a bit.


  2. I can’t have either rice flour (white or brown) or millet. Do you have any suggestions on what I could substitute in your recipes?

  3. Hi.
    I’ve been using Domata gluten free flour. Can I use in this recipe? I assume that it would replace the starches, flours and gum. Domata has the gum in it?
    I’ve been gf for only six weeks and plugging along. Just bought the cuisinart machine with the gf option. Worked great on a sourdough, but craving plain white toast. Lol
    Thanks! Cathy

    1. Hi Cathy,

      I have never used Domata flour and do not its ingredients. If you check the label and read its ingredients, you should look for any ingredient that contains the word “gum” in it. It may be xanthan, guar, or others. If it does not contain gum, then you would still add it. However, depending upon the ration of starch to flour they use will depend upon how much gum you should use. I would just give the experiment a go anyway and see if turns out. Just be prepared for the result to vary.


  4. Is this a two or three pound recipe? The recipe says three pounds but all the bread machines referenced are two pound capacity.
