Gluten-free Crusty Boule

Adapted from Healthy Bread in Five Minutes A Day.

I borrowed this book from the library last fall, after it was recommended to me from someone on an e-mail group I subscribe to. It quickly became our favorite bread, after four years of testing! We also use this recipe for pizza crusts.

Makes enough dough for at least four 1-pound classic boules or two loaf pans.

2 cups brown rice flour
1 1/2 cups sorghum flour
3 cups tapioca starch (tapioca flour)
2 tablespoons yeast
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons xanthan or guar gum
2 2/3 cups lukewarm water
4 large eggs
1/3 neutral-flavored oil
2 tablespoons honey or agave

1. Whisk together the dry ingredients.
2. Combine the wet ingredients and gradually mix them with the dry ingredients. Use a spoon, food processor with dough attachment or stand mixer with paddle.

3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

4. Form dough into boule loaves using wet hands or press into greased loaf pans.

5. Bake for 35 minutes.

6. Enjoy!
