First, I have to tell you that I am not an Expert on Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking.
Some of my 'Readers' have requested my Gluten Free Bread Making Recipe!
Through trial and error I have found that this works for me, and I'm glad to share!
The following Picture Tutorial shows the Brands of Ingredients I have used and the Ingredients and Tips are listed under each picture.
My Recipe is a combination of several Recipes gleaned from several sources, which will be given credit with the ingredient list.
The Gluten Free Flour Mix
This combination of Flours and Corn Starch make a Canister of GF Flour Mix the size of my Apple Canister.
3 cups Brown Rice Flour - Bobs Red Mill
3 cups Corn Starch - Hill Country Brand from HEB
2 cups Soy Flour - Hodgson Mill
1 cup Masa Harina - Maseca Corn Flour
(this site has lots of Info for GlutenFree Baking)
(see Frequently Asked Questions...#5)
Measure all flours in LARGE bowl and Blend together...I use a Whisk.
In another LARGE bowl using a Flour Sifter, transfer the flour to the sifter and sift to blend and smooth out any lumps. This may or may not make a difference in the flour blending, but I like sifting because my Grandmother Minnie and my Mom always sifted flour. It's a Good Thing! Fill your Canister!

Before Mixing...Know About Your Bread Machine!!!
The Dry Ingredients
3 cups of Gluten Free Flour Mix ~ It's in Your Canister...neat huh!
1/4 to 1/2 cup of Sugar ~ I like it Sweet - Hill Country Fare HEB
1 cup Dry Milk Powder ~ I use non-fat - Hill Country Fare HEB
1/4 teaspoon of salt
(Express Bake requires less salt than other settings...less salt provides a higher loaf)
2 1/2 teaspoons Xanthan Gum
(found at Health Food Store ~ kind of expensive at $12.99 this size bag...also found at Walmart in the Gluten Free Isle for about 11.00...it lasts a long time and is critical to GF recipes)
Measure all ingredients into the Flour Sifter placed in a Medium size bowl....sift and set aside!
