How To Make Gluten Free Breads

Gluten free breads

For those who have celiac disease or gluten intolerance, finding a suitable bread can be a challenge. Fortunately, there are plenty of gluten-free bread recipes available that allow you to enjoy delicious, fresh bread without any worries. In this article, we’ll take a look at how to make gluten-free breads.


  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup warm milk (or non-dairy milk)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free flour, active dry yeast, sugar, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, warm water, warm milk, and eggs until well combined.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms. If the dough seems too dry, add a little more warm water. If it’s too wet, add a little more flour.
  5. If using xanthan gum, sprinkle it over the dough and knead it in until fully incorporated. This will help the bread hold its shape and texture.
  6. Shape the dough into a loaf and place it in a greased loaf pan.
  7. Cover the loaf with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 30 minutes, or until it has doubled in size.
  8. Bake the bread in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  9. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend that contains xanthan gum, as this will make the bread easier to handle and improve its texture.
  • Be sure to measure the flour carefully, as too much or too little can affect the texture of the bread.
  • Letting the dough rise in a warm, draft-free place is important for getting a good rise.
  • If you don’t have a loaf pan, you can shape the dough into rolls or a round loaf and bake it on a baking sheet.

In conclusion, making gluten-free breads is a simple process that just requires a few adjustments to the traditional recipe. With these instructions and tips, you can enjoy delicious, fresh bread that’s safe for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
