Gluten Free Farmhouse Buttermilk Bread

This delicious bread has been brought to you by Red Star Yeast, and I am happy to give you my honest opinions about it.

This tender, hearty, homemade buttermilk yeast bread is a gluten-free dream come true. The delicious taste and true bread texture is spot on for sandwiches, toast, whatever your little bread-loving heart desires. This is another GF recipe that I have served to gluten free and non gluten free guests that everyone loved.

Best of all, it's one of the easiest breads I've made. Your mixer does all the work (even a hand mixer will do!), and there's no complicated shaping. You pour the mixture into a loaf pan, let it rise for an hour, and bake. 

Gluten Free Farmhouse Buttermilk Bread

Print recipe

Wet Ingredients
  • ¼ cup, plus 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup canola oil 

Dry Ingredients
  • 2 cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup potato starch
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 3+1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1+1/2 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dry egg replacer, optional
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast (not Quick Rise)

    1. Spray one 9X5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

  • 2. In a large mixing bowl or your stand mixer bowl, combine the wet, room temperature ingredients and mix well.

    3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, including the yeast. Be careful to mix these very well with a whisk (or even shake together in a gallon size zip lock bag). GF flours are very fine and must be blended thoroughly.

  • 4. With your mixer (or hand mixer) on low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until well blended. Beat on low for 10 minutes.

  • 5. Pour batter into loaf pan. Place in a warm, draft-free place and allow to rise for 1 hour. Do not allow to over-rise. A few minutes before the hour is up, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • 6. Bake for about an hour. You can use a toothpick to test for doneness. My bread was done at about 55 minutes, and a toothpick came out with a few moist crumbs attached. 

  • 7. Set pan on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan and allow it to continue to cool on the rack. Let cool completely before slicing. Store leftovers in an airtight container or ziplock bag.

    Cook's Notes: I used a Pyrex (glass) loaf pan and baked at 350 degrees.

Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes (GF)

I have a new favorite pumpkin treat, and it's one that my gluten-free friends and family can enjoy, too. Served at a recent gathering, everyone who tried one of these cupcakes loved them, whether they were eating gluten free or not.

Streusel Apple Pie with Yeast Pie Crust

This special Yeast Pie Crust is brought to you by Red Star Yeast, and I am happy to give you my honest opinions about it.

One of my favorite things about fall is that it is prime pie-making season. I make pies year-round, but fall is the best pie time of all.

When I saw this recipe for Yeast Pie Crust over at Red Star Yeast, I knew I had to try it. Yeast in a pie crust? How would it taste? What would it be like to make something like that? I love a chance to make more pie, so it went right to the top of my to-do list.
