I actually adapted this recipe from Gluten Free Girl's Gluten Free French Bread Recipe. I am ellergic to yeast and I preferred the bread with brown rice flour. I also make it in a bread loaf pan instead of two small skinny loaves. I LOVE this recipe!!! I also used it to make bread pudding and it was perfect. I hope you all enjoy it too.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 3 teaspoons xanthan gum

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (I use a light butter spread)
  • 3 egg whites, beaten slightly
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • melted butter, for brushing (optional)


  1. In a bowl, place flours, xanthan gum, salt and sugar. Blend with mixer on low or by hand.
  2. Add the butter, egg whites, and vinegar.Beat on high or stir in by hand until well mixed.
  3. Pour batter into a buttered bread pan.

This recipe is outstanding. I omitted the sugar, which I don't eat. I may have used a sprinkle of stevia. Also, I read the recipe wrong and used 3 whole eggs, and I added 2 tsp of baking powder. Pure perfection and way better than anything frozen you buy GF/YF anywhere! Thank you. maximezara

Love this recipe. I followed other posters tip and used baking powder as well. Since I have had GF bread recipe failures in the past, I baked only half the recipe. Also used honey instead of sugar and Guar gum instead of Xanthan. Turned out really, really good. The best part is you dont need yeast which I am trying to avoid.

This is a great recipe with patience. After reading some reviews and trying a few variations....I changed it up a little.... I added 2 tsp of non-alum baking powder, I used 2 tsp of xan. gum instead of 3 and 1 tablespoon of sugar. After researching and experimenting...I used distilled water, sea salt and apple vinegar. Also, the kids that I am making the bread for are allergic to eggs, therefore, I substituted a gelatin mixture for the eggs. After mixing really well with a mixer, I decided to make dinner rolls instead of a loaf. It cooked well and all the way through. My friends couldn't tell it was gluten, yeast and egg free bread. I couldn't give it a full 5 stars because of all the modifications, but it is a really good bread.
