“I have way too many delicious gluten free breads… I’m not sure which one to make next” — said no person ever! Too many delicious gluten free breads?! Tell me where to go!
While I am still working my way through hundreds of gluten free bread recipes (not to mention the several hundred I’ve published here on the website), I still have so many more to prep, bake and test [eat] 😊. But for all the ones that I share here, there are an equal number that are complete flops.
What I can promise you about this recipe though, is that it is not a flop. It is a win. It’s actually a double win because it’s the kind of bread that you can serve to dinner guests and they will compliment you on it.
This gluten free cheddar cheese bread for the bread machine will have your guests asking you for the recipe.
Just look at these slices. Oh. my.
Chock full of high quality cheddar cheese and perfectly seasoned with herbs and spices, this large loaf gets a solid two thumbs up.
The recipe does take a good while from start to finish. A very long tease if you will. But the good thing is that it’s a set it and forget type bread recipe, which, let’s face it, there’s not that many of those types of recipes out there – especially with gluten free baking – so when I find one that I can do the prep work beforehand, start it, then come back and have a freshly baked loaf, I don’t mind the wait. Or least I don’t mind it as much. And I don’t think you’ll mind it as much either.
Gluten Free Cheddar Cheese Bead (Bread Machine Recipe)
Yield: 1 2-pound loaf
All ingredients should be at room temperature
1 ½ cups water
2 Tbls. Vegetable oil
2 ¼ tsp, Active dry yeast
2 cups white rice flour
1 cup brown rice flour
¼ cup dry milk powder (for a dairy free option, try DariFree)
2 Tbls. white sugar
1 Tbls. poppy seeds
1 ½ dried dill weed
3 ½ tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. salt
1 ½ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (try Daiya for a dairy free option)
1. In a medium bowl, combine the room temperature wet ingredients and mix well.
2. In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Use a wire whisk to make sure it’s all thoroughly mixed.
3. In the pan of your bread machine, add the wet ingredients first, then add the dry ingredients on top.
4. Select setting 3 – whole wheat setting – and press start.
5. For the first 5 minutes or so, keep a spatula handy to push the mixture down and make sure it’s mixing well.
6. This setting should be about 4 hours – after it’s done, remove the beautiful, long awaited loaf from the pan and let it cool on a wire rack.
Slice and enjoy.
