The perfect bread for gluten-sensitive folks, the Rice Flour Bread is a satiating loaf that is sure to please you with its rustic texture and hearty taste.

This vegan and gluten-free bread is crusty outside and soft inside, just right to slice up and spread your favourite jam on!

This bread is dense and not airy like wheat loaves, but it definitely has an interesting taste and texture that everyone will enjoy, especially when relished fresh on the day it is made.

It can be enjoyed plain, toasted or even grilled.Make sure you cool the loaf completely and then slice it to avoid crumbling.

   Hi Anuja, Try baking it at a lower temperature (about 180C). Results may vary in different ovens.

I have tried about 20 plus different GF bread recipes and this is the only one that works. Looks like white bread, smells like white bread, tastes like white bread. Fabulous. Thank you!
