I am so excited about this recipe! It is the best gluten free bread machine recipe I have developed thus far. This gluten free oat bread machine recipe works perfectly in the Breadman BK1050S, which has a Gluten Free setting. The bread turns out soft and spongy just like the best oat bread made with gluten. It is perfect for sandwiches and is free of tapioca flour. I have experimented and baked quite a few versions of gluten free bread in this machine, and this is the only one that turned out perfect! The rest were just too starchy and gummy. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Meanwhile, check out my review of the Breadman BK1050S bread machine; however, the giveaway has ended.
Gluten Free Oat Bread Recipe for Breadman Machine with GF Setting
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours
Total Time: 5 hours, 20 minutes
Yield: Makes 12 - 13 slices
The perfect gluten free bread machine recipe for a machine with a gluten free setting, especially the Breadman BK1050S.
1 cup + 2 tablespoons water, at room temperature
1/4 cup non-fat instant dry milk (or non-fat milk instead of water) (omit for dairy-free)
1/4 cup neutral-flavored oil (6 tablespoons, if using sorghum flour)
1 teaspoon gluten-free apple cider vinegar
3 large eggs (or 4 large egg whites), at room temperature
2 tablespoons honey (or sugar)
1-1/2 cups certified gluten-free oat flour (or sorghum flour), plus more for dusting
1 cup + 2 tablespoons potato starch
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon xanthan gum (use corn-free brand or guar gum, if needed)
2-1/4 teaspoons instant dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons gluten-free oats or seeds, for topping (optional)
To Make in a Bread Machine with a Gluten-Free Setting:
Remove pan from bread machine. Be sure the paddle is already attached.
Add water, dry milk, oil, vinegar, eggs and honey to the bowl of your bread machine (while removed from the machine).
In a separate bowl, whisk oat flour, potato starch, cornstarch, xanthan gum, yeast, and salt, if using. Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients.
Snap the bread pan into the machine. Using the menu button on your machine, choose the gluten-free option and press "Start".
In the beginning of the mixing cycle, use a silicone or rubber spatula to scrape the flour from the sides of the pan.
Once the mixing cycle ends, remove the mixing paddle. This will prevent a large hole from forming in the bottom of your bread. Smooth out the top using your spatula.
If using oats or seeds to top your bread, add them now and pat them into the bread using your fingers dipped in water.
Once the baking cycle completes, transfer the loaf from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely, at least 2 hours. If the crust is too crunchy for you (it will soften a little on its own), use a clean tea towel to cover the top and sides (not bottom) while it cools on the rack. Test for desired softness. Then remove and allow to cool completely.
Once cooled, remove the paddle using a steak knife (if you've left it in). Slice the bread using an electric slicer, electric knife, or serrated knife. While you can store the bread on the countertop overnight, it is always best to slice and freeze any gluten-free bread.
To Make in the Oven:
Oil a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, dust with oat flour, and set aside.
Add water, dry milk, oil, vinegar, eggs and honey to the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
In a separate bowl, whisk oat flour, potato starch, cornstarch, xanthan gum, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, yeast, salt, and hazelnuts, if using.
Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients. Beat on medium-low speed about 6 minutes.
Transfer the dough to the prepared loaf pan, and using a rubber spatula, smooth out the top. Allow to rise in a warm environment, about 80°F or until just over the rim of the pan, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325°F while bread continues to rise on top of the stove.
Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes, covering with aluminum foil once it reaches a deep golden brown.
Transfer the loaf from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely, about 2 hours. If the crust is too crunchy for you, using a stick of butter, rub it over the top of the crust.
Slice the bread using an electric slicer, electric knife, or serrated knife. While you can store the bread on the countertop overnight, it is always best to slice and freeze any gluten-free bread.
