You do not have to do another search for the best gluten-free bread recipes because here are the top 3. Recipes for simple white bread, a dairy-free variety, and pumpkin bread are included.

Editor’s Note: Since a lot of people have written in and asked, we highly, highly recommend that you make these recipes using a bread maker that has a special gluten-free setting.

Our top pick is the Breville BBM800XL [Latest Price | Reviews]. We’ve also compiled a list of safe gluten-free ones in our Ultimate Guide to Bread Makers.

Gluten-Free White Bread

One tip when making gluten-free bread is that you should follow the instructions and ingredients strictly. As much as possible, you should not halve or double the ingredients. Stick with what is said in the recipe.

Another tip is that you should not substitute anything. If the recipe asks for a quick yeast, then that is what you should use.

To make a medium sized white bread, you will need:

  • 310 grams of vegan milk
  • 1 tsp of vinegar
  • 6 tbsp. of oil
  • 2 regular sized eggs
  • 450 grams of gluten-free flour for white bread
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 tbsp. of sugar
  • 2 tsp of quick yeast

The first thing you have to do is to take out the pan from the machine. Make sure that it is free from any gluten residue if you have used for a gluten bread before.

The next step would be to put the milk into a separate bowl. Add in the vinegar then beat in the oil and eggs. Pour the liquids into the pan.

Add the dry ingredients, except the yeast, to the pan and, using a spoon or spatula, stir the mixture.

Then you can scatter or sprinkle the yeast on top of the mixture.

Put the pan back into the machine, and then you can start the machine on its preprogrammed normal bread setting.

After a few minutes in, open the lid of the machine and scrape the sides of the pan. Use a spatula and not your fingers.

Continue with the program.

Take note that the rising and baking of your white bread will depend on the type of machine that you are using. For some machines, you might need an hour of rising and an hour of baking. While for others, 15 minutes of mixing and 55 minutes of baking will be enough.

If you do not want to guess or do a trial and error, over what the best settings are, it would be better just to get the best gluten-free bread maker. These are bread machines that have gluten-free bread settings.

Gluten and Dairy Free Bread

This next recipe is for those that are not allowed gluten and dairy in their diet. To make a medium sized gluten and dairy free bread, you will need:

  • 1 ½ cups of warm water, it should be about 105-110°F
  • 2 tsp of active dry yeast
  • 2 tsp of sugar
  • 2 regular sized eggs, it should be in room temperature
  • 1 egg white, it should also be in room temperature
  • 1 ½ tbsp. of apple cider vinegar
  • 4 ½ tbsp. of olive or grapeseed oil
  • 420 grams of gluten-free flour

To start your bread, pour the warm water in a measuring cup then add in the yeast and the sugar. Stir it then set aside until you can see foam forming on the mixture. That would take about 8 to 10 minutes.

Next, beat the eggs and egg white together and then add to the pan of the machine. Remember to take the pan out of the machine before you pour your liquid ingredients into it. This is so you don’t get your machine wet in case of spillage.

Next, add the vinegar and the oil to the pan.

Then, add the yeast mixture to the pan.

Lastly, you can add the gluten-free flour to the liquid ingredients in the pan.

Place the pan back in the machine and set it to its gluten-free bread setting. Then you can start the mixing cycle.

After the mixing cycles, open the lid to scrape remaining flour on the sides of the pan. Again, use a spatula. At this time, the mixing paddle can also be removed so it will not be stuck in the bread after it is cooked.

Proceed with the rising and the baking cycle.

One tip to make sure that your bread is successful is that all ingredients should be in room temperature. This is to ensure that the yeast will be effective and will make the bread rise.

Another tip is to use good yeast. If you tried the first step above and your yeast didn’t foam, it is bad yeast. Replace it with a new one and make sure it is not expired.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread

The last recipe is for a loaf of gluten-free pumpkin bread. For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 cup of packed brown sugar, light brown sugar will work best for this recipe
  • 4 tbsp. of maple syrup, the purer it is, the better
  • ¼ cup of olive oil (Here are some olive oil dispensers you may like)
  • 2 large eggs, if you want to make it dairy-free, you can substitute the 2 eggs with 1 tbsp. of egg replacer whisked in a ¼ cup of warm water
  • 1 tbsp. of vanilla
  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree, you could also use pumpkin from a can
  • ¼ tsp of apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup of gluten-free buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup of gluten-free millet flour
  • ¼ cup of sorghum flour
  • ½ cup of potato starch
  • 2 tsp of baking soda
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp of nutmeg
  • Peach or apricot juice

To start, take the pan out and add all the ingredients, except the peach or apricot juice. The juice will be added during the mixing process when your mixture looks a little stiff and thick. Add the juice a tablespoon at a time.

The mixture should look a little thicker than a cake batter.

Put the pan in and set it to light to the medium crust. Program the machine for the super rapid or whatever setting your machine has that is equivalent to this.

Once the mixing cycle is done, remove the paddle from the pan. Then let the cycle continue.

After the cycle is done, cook it for another 10 minutes because this is a large loaf.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but for the regular bread recipe, why do you have to use vegan milk instead of regular?

Thank you.

Jo

Can you tell me the size of the loaf for the bread maker settings please?

Ruth

Why so much sugar

Susan

I have the same question. Why Vegan Milk? I would like to use non-dairy milk but in the second recipe you state “This next recipe is for those that are not allowed gluten and dairy in their diet.” Recipe #1 if with vegan milk is non-dairy. I’d hate to guess and ruin the recipe. Thanks,

Donna

I just want to say thank you for the article and recipes, good job. One wee quibble: I didn’t know that cows laid eggs!
Some people can’t eat eggs but that doesn’t mean that they are dairy free, as eggs aren’t dairy.
Thank you.

Linda

You say medium loaf size, so would I be correct in presuming a 1 1/2 lb loaf?

Garf

Hello, I have a fairly old bread machine, Im after making a gluten, dairy and egg free bread. We usually do a loaf with gluten flour but would like to use the non gluten flour, will it work? any suggestions are very welcome. Cheers all

David Kay

Hi, thanks for the recipes. Tried the ‘Gluten and Dairy Free Bread’ ; the size was pretty much OK, but there was no taste whatsoever! Could it be that there was no taste because there is no salt in the recipe?

Dennis Hall

I tried making the gluten free and dairy free bread yesterday. My bread machine does have a gluten free setting which I used. The bread turned out “crumbly”–just fell apart. Couldn’t slice it because it would just “crumble”. Can you help me with this one? Thanks

Dennis Hall

FYI, I used 1 1/2 cups almond flour and 1 1/2 cups coconut flour.
