Gluten Free Loaf Bread
This bread has quickly become a staple in our house! It's soft, flexible, and slightly sweet. It actually holds together very well for sandwiches and won't disintegrate in the toaster. I have only used agave nectar for the sweetener, but I think that honey or cane sugar would also work with this recipe. Feel free to experiment and let me know how it turns out! We like our bread on the sweeter side, so feel free to also experiment with the amount of sweetener used in this recipe. This bread will stay soft and fresh for several days when stored in a plastic freezer bag. It's really important to make sure to use fresh yeast with this recipe! If the bread doesn't rise as much as expected, then you might try it again with fresh yeast. Also, make sure that your water is lukewarm, not hot and not cold, so that the yeast will have an ideal environment for proofing. This really helps the bread to achieve ultimate fluffiness! As a mom of three, I love how incredibly easy it is to make in the bread maker! You just add all the ingredients together in order, press a couple of buttons, and the machine does the rest. This bread is also dairy-free which is a huge plus for us since my daughter has a dairy intolerance. Enjoy!

- Make sure that the mixing paddle is in the baking container and then all the ingredients into the bread machine in the order listed in the ingredients list. DO NOT mix the ingredients together yet!
- I use a West Bend bread machine. After adding all the ingredients into the baking container, close the lid and set the machine to "Basic Quick" mode. You can set the bread color to whatever you want, but we like it at "medium". When the machine has mixed the ingredients a little bit, take a spatula and scrape down the sides as it is mixing so that all of the flour gets properly incorporated.
- After the bread has finished cooking, slide it out of the baking container and let cool on the counter for about an hour before cutting. Enjoy!
