Bread Machine Gluten Free Country Two-Step Bread

bread image
This bread uses an interesting variation in putting the dough together. Most of the dry ingredients are combined with the liquid, heated to 150°F. This allows the flour to absorb more moisture and results in a softer loaf.
Yield 1 loaf



  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
  • 2 cups water (150°F)
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons xanthan gum
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons non-dairy creamer
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 3 large eggs


  • In a medium bowl, add rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, chickpea flour, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour hot water, cider vinegar and oil into bread machine baking pan.
  • Add flour mixture. Start machine on dough cycle.
  • When kneading is finished, remove pan from machine until cooled to room temperature, a minimum of 2 hours to overnight.
  • When ready to continue, combine xanthan gum, sugar, non-dairy creamer, and yeast in a small bowl; set aside.
  • When mixture is cooled sufficiently, beat 3 large eggs lightly and add to baking pan mixture.
  • Place pan in bread machine, seating carefully. Set bread machine on Gluten Free Setting and press start.
  • When eggs are beaten in (about 1 minute), slowly add yeast mixture while machine continues mixing. Close lid and let cycle continue.
  • When baking cycle finishes, test for doneness with a toothpick. If not quite done, leave in machine for an extra 10 minutes.
  • Remove from bread machine when bake cycle is complete. Invert pan and gently shake to remove bread. Cool upright on a rack before slicing.

Hello Red Star Yeast: could you please tell me what kind of non-dairy creamer you used in the GF Country two step bread recipe? Is there a specific brand or is it more the ingredients that matter? Is it for flavor or dough enhancement? Thank you. Gina

Hi Gina,
The powdered non-dairy creamer is added for flavor. No specific ingredients – use any brand you prefer.

Happy baking!
