There’s little that’s better than the smell of freshly baked bread, right out of the oven. As I told you in a previous post, my father recently discovered he has Celiac Disease. Longing for bread, he decided today that he would make his very own gluten free version from scratch. Of course, I had to share this recipe with you, because it’s too good to pass up.
This bread is perfect for sandwiches, toast, or even just for eating plain. It’s crusty on the top and tender on the inside, and the quinoa flour gives it a flavor that I find to be even better than bread that has gluten in it. I hope you enjoy this recipe from my dad, I know our family certainly did!

For this recipe you will need 1 large bowl, an electric mixer, plastic wrap, a loaf pan, a spatula, and a glass measuring cup.
- 2 cups Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour
- 1 cup Gluten Free Quinoa Flour
- 3 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 2 tsp. instant yeast
- 1 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 1/4 tsp. cornstarch
- 1 cup warm milk
- 4 tbsp. softened butter + butter for pan
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tsp. olive oil (for greasing plastic wrap)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Sift flours, salt, yeast, and cornstarch into a bowl. Whisk with sugar.
Slowly pour in the warm milk and beat until the batter comes together. Add the butter and mix. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well.
Cover the bowl with greased plastic wrap and let your dough rise for 1 hour. (To grease your plastic wrap, lay it flat and pour a tsp. of olive oil in the center. Spread the oil around until a thin layer coats the entire sheet. Cover your dough with the greased side facing down and press into the sides of the bowl, then allow the rest of the wrap to go up and out of the bowl).
Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl once the dough has risen, deflating the batter gently and gathering it together so you may transfer it into a well greased loaf pan. Press the dough level, using a spatula. Cover the loaf pan with more greased plastic wrap and set it in a warm place to rise. It will take about 45 minutes to an hour for it to be ready.
Remove the plastic wrap and bake the bread for 38-42 minutes (until golden brown). Once it’s cool enough to touch, cut a slice of your loaf and enjoy! This bread is especially good with butter or for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
