This has the look and texture of the gluten free breads I have tasted, such as Udi's brand. It is just slightly more dense. For being homemade. I guess, I just expected something so much better. A year or so ago I decided to test gluten or wheat free baked goods to see how they would turn out. I found that despite the wheat not being included they still had tons of starch, eggs, butter, and sugar. Sometimes, at rates much higher than regular white or whole grain bread. This bread was no exception. It was super easy to make, as no hand kneading or shaping is needed. Though like most gluten free breads, I find it very rich and almost too sweet tasting. Definitely not like what I know as regular sandwich bread. This one was so sweet it almost reminded me of a mix between bread and a low sugar pound cake or as another reviewer put it closer to a very sweet "beer bread." I thought the amount of sugar seemed excessive. I liked the crunch it had. However, I think that was due to blending rice in my Vitamix grain container to make rice flour. I was just trying to use up sorghum flour, potato starch, and some xanthum gum. I bought these ingredients solely to test gluten free recipes as I only seem to see these ingredients in them and they do have a shelf life. I would definitely not recommend this recipe to someone that eats regular wheat bread, but possibly to someone gluten or wheat intolerant to save some money. Udis & similar brands run about $5.00 a loaf. I got 18 slices total.
