Thanks to Go Dairy Free viewer Pat for sharing her favorite dairy-free, gluten-free rice bread recipe with us! She sent an email with this simple bread that’s reportedly great for toast and sandwiches.
Pat’s measurements are more relaxed than our typical bread recipes, but as long as you get a fairly loose batter, you should be on the right track. Gluten-free bread is made with a batter, rather than dough, to keep the bread from being too dry.
This recipe does require quite a few eggs, so I do not recommend trying to substitute them.
If you can’t find gluten-free self raising flour, then you can make your own. Bob’s Red Mill has a good recipe.
Arrowroot starch / flour can be a little expensive. In a pinch, you can substitute non-GMO cornstarch or tapioca starch.

I tried this bread tonight and it was a disaster. It was heavy and it did not look anything like the picture at all. I will not be using this website again.
