Gluten Free Simplest Sandwich Bread Recipe

This bread has a nice light and soft texture. The type of all-purpose flour really does matter, however, because the ratios of protein-based flours to starch-based flours in different mixes will affect the structure and rise of the bread. This recipe has been tested with both Cup 4 Cup Multipurpose Gluten-Free Flour Blend and Pamela’s All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend. Feel free to experiment and see if this recipe works with your favorite gluten-free all-purpose flour.

  • 1 cup warm water 100°F
  • ½ cup warm milk 100°F
  • teaspoons active dry yeast not instant yeast
  • cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup plus ⅛ cup vegetable oil


  • Mix water and milk in a small bowl. Sprinkle yeast on top and let sit 5 minutes to proof.
  • Whisk flour, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder in the bowl of a stand mixer. In another small bowl, mix together honey, eggs, and oil. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the yeast and egg mixtures. Mix on low until flour is just moistened. Mix on high for 1 minute, until just mixed. Do not over-mix.
  • Spray an 8x4-inch loaf pan with gluten-free nonstick cooking spray. Line the inside edges of the pan with parchment paper, with 1-2 inches sticking up from the top of the pan. Pour in the dough and smooth the top with oil. Cut a slit down the center so the dough rises evenly and steam is able to escape. Drape with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm 75-80°F environment for about 1 hour or until the dough has almost doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake 65-70 minutes. Using an instant-read thermometer, monitor the internal temperature closely toward the end of the baking time to avoid drying out the loaf. The bread should be nicely browned and the internal temperature should reach 203°F.

      Hi Maryann,
      As long as your all-purpose flour blend contains some kind of gum you should be good! The ones mentioned in the description – Cup4Cup and Pamela’s – have either xanthan gum or guar gum in them.

    Made this recipe today. Pretty solid bread. Not at all like batter breads but more like regular bread dough. Slight taste of garlic and I baked this 60 minutes to internal temp of 203. Came out of the pan nicely and sliced well. But wet on the inside but ok after toasting. Plan to adjust flavors but but definitely will bake again. I used instant yeast and added 1 tsp. Apple cider vinegar. Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 flour. Nice crust on the outside. Thanks for your recipe.
