Here are all the ingredients you'll need to make a beautiful loaf of bread, without any gluten! 

1 c warm water
2 T maple syrup or sugar
1 T active dry yeast

1/2 c brown rice flour
1/2 c sweet white rice flour
2 c tapioca flour
1 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
3/4 t xanthan gum
2 T caraway seeds

2 egg whites
1 T apple cider vinegar

I buy my gluten free flours from Bob's Red Mill. They are certified gluten free, and there will be no chance for cross-contamination like you might find in flours from bulk bins. 

Step 1: Proofing Your Yeast

1 c warm water
2 T maple syrup or sugar
1 T active dry yeast

Like any normal bread, gluten-free bread required activated yeast.

To check that your yeast is good and to activate it, add 2 T of your sweetener to 1 cup of warm (not hot) water. When the sugar dissolves, add 1 T yeast and stir. Leave the bowl to rest in a warm place (like the top of your stove) for 10-15 minutes, or until foamy.

If your yeast mixture does foam, the yeast is ready to go! If it does not, try another batch of yeast. I recommend storing your yeast in the refrigerator until ready to use. If you plan on baking lots of bread, buy your yeast in bulk! The individual packages of yeast are much more expensive per unit.
