Happy hump day! Hope your week is going well.
I love this bread. Really. It's amazing. You wouldn't think it was gluten free, as it's not the least bit dry, and it doesn't crumble apart when slicing it. Super easy to make too. Promise.
Brown Rice Bread with Pumpkin Seeds - makes one 3"x8" loaf.
1 cup very warm water
1 8g packet of instant yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup sorghum* flour (I used Bob's Red Mill brand)
3/4 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup potato starch
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1/4 cup skim milk powder
2 teaspoons guar gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 egg whites
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Spray a 3"x8" loaf pan with oil, then line with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together water, sugar and yeast. Let stand for about 5 minutes until mixture starts to foam. In a large bowl, stir together all dry ingredients until well combined. Set aside.
In another bowl, beat together egg, egg whites, vinegar and oil until well blended. Add yeast mixture and beat to combine. With mixer on low speed, slowly add the dry mixture. On medium speed, beat dough for 5 minutes. Scrape dough into prepared pan and allow to sit in a warm spot, for about 60 minutes, or until dough has risen to top of pan.
Preheat oven to 350f/180c. Bake for about 35 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when lightly tapped on bottom. Allow to cool, in pan, on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
Have a great day! Back soon.
