Bread Machine Gluten Free Country Two-Step Bread

bread image
This bread uses an interesting variation in putting the dough together. Most of the dry ingredients are combined with the liquid, heated to 150°F. This allows the flour to absorb more moisture and results in a softer loaf.
Yield 1 loaf



  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
  • 2 cups water (150°F)
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons xanthan gum
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons non-dairy creamer
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 3 large eggs


  • In a medium bowl, add rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, chickpea flour, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour hot water, cider vinegar and oil into bread machine baking pan.
  • Add flour mixture. Start machine on dough cycle.
  • When kneading is finished, remove pan from machine until cooled to room temperature, a minimum of 2 hours to overnight.
  • When ready to continue, combine xanthan gum, sugar, non-dairy creamer, and yeast in a small bowl; set aside.
  • When mixture is cooled sufficiently, beat 3 large eggs lightly and add to baking pan mixture.
  • Place pan in bread machine, seating carefully. Set bread machine on Gluten Free Setting and press start.
  • When eggs are beaten in (about 1 minute), slowly add yeast mixture while machine continues mixing. Close lid and let cycle continue.
  • When baking cycle finishes, test for doneness with a toothpick. If not quite done, leave in machine for an extra 10 minutes.
  • Remove from bread machine when bake cycle is complete. Invert pan and gently shake to remove bread. Cool upright on a rack before slicing.

In the two step gluten free recipe, is the non dairy creamer a powder or liquid

Hi June,

It is a powder used to add flavor. Feel free to use whatever one you would like!

My bread machine diesn’t have a gluten-free setting. What setting can i use instead? Or can i use my oven to bake it instead? I’d really like to try this recipe.

Hi Megan – If your bread machine does not have a gluten-free setting, you could use the setting that only has one mixing cycle (it’s often the quick, rapid, rapid rise, one rise or basic feature). Or you can mix it by hand and bake the loaf in the oven. You can find gluten-free baking tips here:

I was wondering if you can use the instant sourdough yeast in this Gluten free bread recipe.

Hi Mia – The Platinum Instant Sourdough is not gluten-free. You can use Red Star Active Dry Yeast (1 packet or 2 1/4 teaspoons) or Red Star Quick Rise Yeast (1 3/4 teaspoons).
Happy baking!

Hello Red Star Yeast: could you please tell me what kind of non-dairy creamer you used in the GF Country two step bread recipe? Is there a specific brand or is it more the ingredients that matter? Is it for flavor or dough enhancement? Thank you. Gina

Hi Gina,
The powdered non-dairy creamer is added for flavor. No specific ingredients – use any brand you prefer.

Happy baking!

Is there a substitute that may be used for the non-dairy creamer?

Hi Judi – You can use milk or a milk substitute (almond, soy, etc) or simply use water.
Happy baking!
