This is another recipe from 125 Best Gluten-Free Bread Machine Recipes by Donna Washburn and Heather Butt! I was so excited to find a recipe for a gluten-free sourdough bread! It is usually very difficult to make gluten-free bread in a machine. However, I believe due to the high amount of xanthan gum this one is much easier. How wonderful to have a cookbook just on this subject alone!
Stay tuned in for my review of this book, a giveaway of the book and another recipe, Olive Ciabatta, compliments of the publisher, Robert Rose Inc! See the photo below of the bread I made. It’s a heavy loaf, but that is what you can expect from a gluten-free bread recipe which contains high fiber, high nutrition. You should be able to make this recipe without a bread machine, and it will most likely turn out lighter, as this one is pretty heavy, as is. Or perhaps you can give it a go in a bread machine with a gluten free cycle. Mine does not have such an option.
Try this warm, creamy loaf the next time you feel like a sandwich.

For an even tangier taste, add 1 tsp (5 mL) cider vinegar with the liquids.
To make this recipe egg-free: Omit eggs from the recipe. Combine 3⁄4 cup (175 mL) flax flour or ground flaxseed with an additional 3⁄4 cup (175 mL) warm water. Set aside for 5 minutes. Add with the liquids.
If your bread machine has a Gluten-Free Cycle, you will need to make these adjustments:
1. Warm the water to between 110°F and 115°F (43°C and 46°C).
2. Warm the eggs and egg whites (see the Techniques Glossary, page 238).
3. Follow the recipe instructions, but select the Gluten‑Free Cycle rather than the Dough Cycle and Bake Cycle.
4. At the end of the Gluten-Free Cycle, take the temperature of the loaf using an instant-read thermometer. It is baked at 200°F (100°C). If it’s between 180°F (85°C) and 200°F (100°C), leave machine on the Keep Warm Cycle until baked. If it’s below 180°F (85°C), turn on the Bake Cycle and check the internal temperature every 10 minutes. (Some bread machines are automatically set for 60 minutes; others need to be set by 10-minute intervals.)
