Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread

This easy no-knead bread has great texture and a simple, pleasing flavour. Enjoy slices warm with butter or transform them into a grilled cheese, a hearty sandwich or French toast. The best part: The loaves freeze beautifully, so make extra to enjoy later.

In large bowl, whisk together tapioca starch, brown rice flour, potato starch, flaxseeds, yeast, xanthan gum and salt.

Whisk together milk, eggs, honey, oil and vinegar. Pour over tapioca starch mixture; stir until well combined. Scrape into parchment paper–lined 8- x 4-inch (1.5 L) loaf pan; smooth top. Cover loosely with plastic wrap; let stand in warm draft-free place until loaf rises just above rim of pan, about 20 minutes.

Bake in 350ºF (180ºC) oven until light golden and cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 1 hour. Transfer to rack; serve warm or let cool. (Make-ahead: Slice loaf; wrap in plastic wrap and freeze in resealable freezer bag for up to 1 month.)
