It seems that bread made from rice flour can never be really fluffy and light, like a supermarket loaf. As I have trouble generally with some of the starches they tend to use (maize/corn especially, tapioca maybe), I avoid "gluten free" bread flours.

This recipe worked for me first time. Moist, fairly dense but not too dense.
Fan oven @ 200°C, and having read here that some people had trouble with stickiness in the middle, I baked for the full 60 minutes, then removed the foil and left in the oven for a little longer whilst it cooled down. No stickiness left in the middle.
I also sprinkled some sesame seeds on the top before baking.

Really, really delicious. My partner even said so too so it must be good :)

I make mine without a xanxam gum. I aim for the cake consistency and let it rise for 60 min. Mix it again and let it rise for further 30mins and bake. Perfect bread everytime. No measurements, sorry. I usually just estimate

I've noticed some of the reviews mention the bread not being cooked correctly on the inside even when following recipe... but I see no answers to why this maybe happening? Would like to know before trying recipe please

Pls what can be used to replace the use of xanthan gum?

Many thanks for your review, unfortunately we do not have a direct replacement for Xanthan Gum. This acts as a binding agent for the bread to provide elasticity for the bread. Kind Regards, Doves Farm.

I tried this bread recipe for the first time today. Like Mr Ellis the outside of the loaf was good & crispy but the inside was undercooked, badly. I followed the recipe to the letter, including the cooking time. Can anyone suggest what I did wrong?

Tried this in my Panasonic Breadmaker (SD-255) on the Gluten Free program (Dark Crust). First time I have attempted to make bread with rice flour. Slightly heavier than wheat flour bread. I will probably increase the salt to 1.5 tsp next time. But nevertheless the bread came out perfect.

I made this, followed it to the letter and the crust was superb.

Unfortunately the rest was undercooked. It is doughy, but just about edible.

Is there an experienced baker who can explain where I or the recipe went wrong?
