“This recipe was inspired by recipes all over the web including After scouring the internet for tips on how to make a great tasting bread, I think I've come up with the best gf bread recipe! I can say with confidence that this recipe tastes like "real" bread because I'm not gluten-free. It is also pliable, not crubmly. My parents and son have gluten allergies, along with egg, soy, and dairy (cow and goat) allergies. So this recipe is free of those. I hope you don't substitute anytihng when making this recipe because you may not have the same results at home. I think the two main ingredients that set this one aside from most others is the sorghum flour and the unflavored gelatin. Sorghum flour is a grass which more resembles the flavor of wheat than other gf flours and is frequently used in Africa and Asia. The unflavored gelatin makes this recipe moist and spongy. Just a note: this makes more than one loaf...about a loaf and a third. I haven't perfected it down to just one loaf, but wanted to share with you anyways. I hope that you and your enjoys this as much as my family does. If you try this and figure out how long the baking time is on a non-convection oven, please post this information in the rating so that others will know. Preparation time includes rising time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to boil.
  3. Prepare bread pans by greasing and flouring with gluten-free flour.
  4. Mix all dry ingredients together well with whisk.
  5. Mix all liquid ingredients together.
  6. Combine wet and dry ingredients together until well incorporated. Dough will have a thick, batter-like consistency.
  7. Pour batter into one bread pan about 3/4 full and pour the rest into the other bread pan.
  8. Turn oven off.
  9. Pour boiling water into large glass dish and place it on the bottom rack of the oven.
  10. Put bread pans on the top rack of the oven and close the door. Remember that the oven must be switched off at this point.
  11. Allow the dough to rise for about 45-50 minutes.
  12. Remove the bread pans form the oven and heat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  13. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 40-50 minutes or until the loaf is golden brown. I use a convection oven and my loaves are done after about 25 minutes. Do not let the crust become too dark or the bread will be crumbly.
  14. Remove loaves from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes.
  15. Remove by gently loosening the bread from the pans with a knife.
  16. Cool loaves covered with a dish towel for 30 minutes before slicing.
  17. Hope you enjoy!
