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."

  • 1 cup tapioca starch

  • 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)
