No Bull Rice Bread

READY IN: 1hr 39mins
Recipe by Eric D.

Tired of seeing recipes for wheat free bread full of things like Xanthan Gum, other allergens and impossible to find flours I decided to make my own. You can find Glutinous Rice flour at any Asian market. THIS RECIPE REQUIRES A COVERED LOAF PAN. It will not come out otherwise - rice needs a lot of wet heat to "activate." If you can not find one (try Ebay) use aluminum foil to cover it tightly. I'm serious - do not bother making this recipe unless you do will this.

This recipe was delicious! I appreciated that it didn't call for a dozen exotic types of was very easy to pull together with the current contents of my cabinet. Like another reviewer, I also added two tablespoons of oil (olive oil, in my case). The flavor was just yeasty and nutty and sweet enough, with a dense yet soft texture and a nice crisp crust. I also do not have access to a covered loaf pan, so I wrapped mine with aluminum foil. Also, instead of oiling and flouring the pan, I just lined it with parchment paper for easy removal. Worked like a charm. We had ours alongside soup, spread with butter--my husband and I ate nearly the entire loaf in one evening! This recipe just might become a staple at our house...:)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make sure there is a rack in the middle position of the oven. Set the temperature dial to 200°F and heat up the oven.
  2. Butter and flour (I use the white rice flour) the coverable loaf pan.
  3. Dump all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix in the filtered water (carefully and slowly!) with a butter knife until all the flour is incorporated and the dough is the texture of soft ice cream. Make sure you have all the flour mixed together before adding the next step of water. It can go from dough to soup very fast! It usually takes a bit more than 1 1/4 cups for me.
  4. Turn off the oven. Dump the dough into the loaf pan and leave it in the oven to rise for 1 hour.
  5. Set the oven to anywhere between 350°F to 375°F depending on how you want your crust and bake it for 40 minutes with the lid ON.
  6. Take the lid off and bake it for another 40 minutes.
  7. Cool until yummy-warm.
