“Improved” Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Oat or Sorghum Bread (Oven or Machine)

Make this flavorful, soft, and moist gluten free bread in a bread machine or in your oven. It lasts much longer in room temperature conditions and in the fridge than my previous versions.

While I used Breaman BL1050S machine, I have also made this bread successfully in the oven. Check out the video to see the texture for yourself. You can also check out my review of the Breadman BK1050S bread machine; however, the giveaway has ended years ago.

You can also watch a video of my previous oat bread recipe, but I used different amounts of whole eggs and whites in this new recipe. Meanwhile, here is a new video showing the texture of this wonderful bread! [coming soon].

Also, check out these variations of this recipe. I like this new one the best!

“Improved” Gluten Free Oat or Sorghum Bread (Oven or Machine) Dair

All you can ask for in a gluten free oat bread, tons of flavor, a wonderfully soft fresh bread texture, and an extended shelf life. Make in your oven or bread machine.

Ingredients:

  • 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
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or sugar)
  • 1-1/2 cups certified gluten-free oat flour (or 1-1/3 cups sorghum flour), plus more for dusting
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons potato starch
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch (or tapioca flour)
  • 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)

Instructions:

    To Make in a Bread Machine with a Gluten-Free Setting:
  1. Remove pan from bread machine. Be sure the paddle is already attached.
  2. Add water, dry milk, oil, vinegar, eggs and honey to the bowl of your bread machine (while removed from the machine).
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk oat flour, potato starch, cornstarch, xanthan gum, yeast, and salt, if using. Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients.
  4. Snap the bread pan into the machine. Using the menu button on your machine, choose the gluten-free option and press "Start".
  5. In the beginning of the mixing cycle, use a silicone or rubber spatula to scrape the flour from the sides of the pan.
  6. 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.
  7. If using oats or seeds to top your bread, add them now and pat them into the bread using your fingers dipped in water.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. To Make in the Oven:
  11. Oil a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, dust with oat flour, and set aside.
  12. Add water, dry milk (if using), oil, vinegar, eggs, egg whites, and honey to the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
  13. In a separate bowl, whisk oat flour, potato starch, cornstarch, xanthan gum, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, yeast, salt, and hazelnuts, if using.
  14. Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients. Beat on medium-low speed about 6 minutes.
  15. 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.
  16. Preheat oven to 325°F while bread continues to rise on top of the stove.
  17. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes, covering with aluminum foil once it reaches a deep golden brown.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.

  1. I tried the oven method and it was a complete disaster and mess. The batter is far too thick for a mixer. Almost ruined my mixer because the batter when up into the beater holes where they attach. Spent an hour cleaning up everything and wasted a lot of expensive ingredients. I suggest you remove the oven section of this recipe.

    1. Janielle,

      I am so sorry to hear this. I and others have made this recipe a number of times successfully and I have received positive feedback on both the oven and bread machine versions.

      I’m assuming you have a small, low powered mixer. For gluten-free bread, high-powered mixers are usually needed to withstand the consistency. Almost all of my recipe testers either own or eventually invest in a KitchenAid or similar powered mixer.

      Carla
