Gene's Basic Rice Bread Recipe

Gene Hill, who lives in Davis, California, bakes this bread at least twice a week. He recommends trying it as a toasted cheese sandwich. Grill it with thin slices of red onion or bell pepper and cheese.

Step 1

Place the buttermilk, melted butter, rice vinegar, and salt in bread pan. Stir with a rubber spatula.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients except the yeast. Mix well with a whisk.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, combine the eggs and water; beat lightly.

Step 4

Place 1/2 of the dry ingredients in the bread pan. Add the egg mixture. Add the remainder of the dry ingredients; sprinkle the yeast on top. Select Light Crust setting and press Start.

Step 5

Observe the dough frequently during the kneading cycles. If it does not appear to be mixing well, use a rubber spatula to assist it occasionally.

Step 6

After the baking cycle ends, remove bread from pan, place on wire rack, and allow to cool 1 hour before slicing.

VARIATIONS * You can substitute olive oil for the butter. * Replace 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the rice flour with another gluten-free flour, such as yellow or blue corn flour, polenta meal, or soy flour. * You can add at least 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese for a new flavor. * Saute some onions in the melted butter, allow them to cool, then add them and your favorite herbs to create an onion/herb bread.
