  • 1 1/2 cups warm milk ,dairy-free use cashew, almond or coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter ,dairy-free use Earth Balance or Smart Balance
  • 2 eggs ,beaten
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum ,leave out if your flour already has it in it
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons rapid yeast/instant yeast ,I use Fleischmann's Bread Machine Instant Yeast

  1. The first step in making bread in your bread machine is to add all the wet ingredients first to the bread baking pan.
  2. Warm the milk and melt butter. I combine this step and add the milk and butter to a large glass measuring cup and heat in the microwave. Pour warm milk and melted butter in the bread baking pan.
  3. Pour the honey into the bread baking pan.
  4. Pour the beaten eggs into the bread baking pan.
  5. Add the apple cider vinegar to the bread baking pan.
  6. Now it's time to add your dry ingredients.
  7. Add the flour, salt, and xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it) to the bread baking pan.
  8. The last step is to add your yeast. First, make a little hole with your finger in the flour. Pour the yeast into the hole.
  9. Start the bread machine and set to the gluten-free setting.
  10. As your bread machine is mixing, you will need to go in and scrape the sides down into the batter with a spatula.  Your bread machine may be different and you may not need this step.
  11. Cool before slicing. Enjoy!
