Recipe by Max's Grandma
A tasty, slightly chewy bread that stays moist without being crumbly. Even my non-GF spouse likes it. This is my adaptation of a recipe from "Easy Bread Making for Special Diets."
- 3 2⁄3 cups white rice flour
- 2⁄3 cup potato flour (not potato starch)
- 1 cup tapioca starch
- 4 1⁄2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vitamin C powder (from health food store)
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons xanthan gum (yes, it's 2 T plus 2 tsp)
- 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 2 cups apple juice
- 1 cup water
- 6 extra large eggs (should be 1/4 cup each, if not add water or another egg to total 1 1/2 cups)
- 1⁄4 cup oil (olive or canola)
