The BEST gluten free toast!

So in trying to find an amazing sandwich bread I came up with a recipe that turns out an AWESOME loaf of bread for toast! I play around with this recipe almost every time I make it and it always comes out yummy so don't be afraid to experiment! Sometimes I use applesauce and hot water instead of beer, just depends on what is in my fridge/pantry!

Honey White Toast

3 ¼ cups of Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp Flax seed Meal
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 packet (7g) of bread machine yeast
¼ cup Honey (about 76g)
2 eggs
½ cup of gluten free beer or club soda (the beer keeps the bread moist for longer)
Hot but not Boiling Water

Sift together the dry ingredients. Using a mixer on a slow speed add honey and eggs. Stream in the beer and beat on high speed for 3-5 minutes. The dough should be like thick cake batter (very similar to quick breads). If the dough/batter is dry add some of the hot water. Pour into a bread pan and let rise for 90-120 minutes. Do not let the bread rise longer than 2 hours!! The bread should rise just over the top of the pan. Bake for 45 min or until golden brown on top at 350 degrees F. Transfer bread onto a baking sheet or pizza stone and bake for additional 15mins. Bread should sound hollow when thumped on the bottom.

Next time I'll have to post my great-grandmothers banana bread recipe. It is the BEST banana bread you will ever taste, and guess what?? It tastes even better gluten and dairy free!
