Gluten-Free Bread in a Bread Machine


A gluten-free bread machine recipe that's easy to make. It's not as good as normal bread, but it's pretty good if you must avoid gluten. If the mixture looks more like cake batter than bread dough in your machine, don't worry, it will be okay. The loaf may sink while it's baking, leaving a crusty, crunchy bowl on the exposed end, which you will want to slice off and discard. The finished bread will be quite firm and heavy, I recommend slicing it thinly. It makes good toast, but it toasts slowly. I use my darkest toaster setting and have to run that twice to get golden brown toast.
