Maggie's Tips

  • Quality of gluten free flours can vary a lot between brands. The liquid ratio for this bread is for whole brown rice flour. Check your labels and use less liquid if using white flour.
  • This bread will stay fresh for a few days and it also freezes really well.
  • Dairy free option use a combination of soya yoghurt and soya milk.
