I reduce the oil to 1/4 cup and increase the baking temp to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (for the same amount of time). This gives me a crisper crust, and an inside that is less mushy. I also finally found a smaller than standard loaf pan here in the states (a regular 9x5 is way too big), and then I slice and freeze whatever I'm not using that day. It defrosts in the microwave well if I'm in a hurry. My recipe now has lots of modifications but I give this 4 stars because it was a great base for me to get started with! (Note, I have found that what kind of gluten free flour you use makes a huge difference in the moisture content and texture, so my changes might not work at all well for you, but if you try this with your flours and you need to reduce the moisture content, maybe this will help.)

Wow this bread turned out amazing! I followed the comments and reduced the oil to 1/4 cup, I used the whole egg instead of just whites and I left out the sugar all together but think it could probably use at least a tablespoon. I also added Chia seeds and next time I'm going to put a few other types of seeds in as well. Great recipe! No more buying expensive gluten free bread for me!

I baked this today and it did not turn out well. The batter seemed very dry. I added a little more milk but it came out dry and cumbly. It did not rise either. I used almond milk and Robin Hood Gluten free bread. Could either if these be the problem???
