Gluten Free Dairy Free Herbed Cheese Bread Recipe

Allergen Friendly Cheese Bread

Gluten Free Dairy Free Herbed Cheese Bread

I don’t know about you, but I love a good loaf of bread.  The smell of it baking is heaven to the senses.  I missed being able to eat a good cheese bread since going gluten and dairy free.  So, of course, I decided to create my own!  I’ve decided to share my newest creation the Gluten Free Dairy Free Herbed Cheese Bread Recipe with you today!

I also want to share a new cookbook coming out called Make Ahead Bread and a FREE offer with you as well.  A fellow Good Cook Blogger has written a cookbook all about breads.  For everyone that preorders her book and fills out this FORM you will be sent a free loaf pan from Good Cook.  An awesome deal to help support an awesome blogger.

The above free loaf pan offer will be good until February 28th.  Good Cook is also offering a 25% off code for any Good Cook purchase using promo code BakeBread.

Now onto my recipe!

Proof your yeast.  I place 1 Tb yeast and 1/4 Tb sugar in 1/4 cup warm water.  Allow this to rise and proof while you prepare the rest.

In your mixer bowl(or large mixing bowl) combine:

1 cup brown rice flour

3/4 cup millet flour

1/2 cup quinoa flour

1/2 cup tapioca starch

1/3 cup sweet rice flour

1/3 cup potato starch

1/4 cup flaxseed meal

1 Tb guar gum

1 tsp salt

1 Tb thyme

1 Tb basil

1 Tb oregano

1 tsp dill

Mix these all together to combine.

In a small mixing bowl combine 3 eggs, 1 Tb molasses, and 1/2 Tb apple cider vinegar.

Prepare 1 cup warm water and 1/4 cup olive oil in a separate measuring cup.

You will also need 1/4 cup chopped onions carmelized and 1 cup of Daiya dairy free mozzarella cheese(you can use any other cheese but this is what I prefer).

Now your yeast should be proofed.

Add the egg mixture to the flours and mix with the mixer.

As the mixer continues to mix add in the yeast mixture.

I normally gear up the mixer a notch here and add in the water and olive oil.

Allow this to knead in the mixer for 15 minutes or knead by hand.

At the end of the 15 minutes add in the onions and cheese and just knead them in.

Now you can place this in a loaf pan to double and rise or you can do my favorite.

I place my loaf in a round loaf on top of my Good Cook pizza stone.  Because we like a crunchy crust I sprinkle brown rice flour on the pizza stone and then dust the top of the loaf with the flour as well.

herbed cheese bread dough

Allow your bread dough to rise until double in size.

This to me makes and excellent loaf of what my kids call “soup bread” as opposed to sandwich bread.

Allow your bread to rise or double in size.  Depending on the heat and humidity of your house, this can vary.

Once the bread has risen bake at 350 degrees F until done.  This normally takes 45 minutes, but again can vary.

Fresh from the oven, ready to eat.

This cheese bread is best eaten warm but can be reheated well.

If you have any leftovers, I recommend refrigerating them due to the cheese.

    I love a great bread recipe. After needing to go gluten free it was horrible to have to toss out all those recipes that I’d come up with through the years. I’ll check that out!


  2. Alanna Rusnak says:

    Wow! A gluten free/lactose free/soy free lifestyle seems daunting to me but you seem to have it under control! And 9 kids??? Double wow! Blessings to you and your family!

  3. Tina says:

    I have to admit that I’ve never made a loaf of bread from scratch. The thought to backing anything with more than about 5 ingredients makes me nervous! But I have a precious friend who bakes and is also gluten free and I’m excited to share this with her!

      I do some Paleo as well but found that it just didn’t work for us in this season of our life with 9 kiddos. We still do some though and often go weeks without adding back any grains.

  4. Beth Hollmann says:

    Wow, thank you for all the gluten-free bread recipes! We are not gluten free yet, but may be headed that direction. My mom needs to avoid gluten, so I know she will appreciate these very much, I and I’m thrilled to have things to make for her when she visits!

    I am going to pass this recipe on to a friend who has a child that needs to eat gluten free. She is always on the lookout for good bread recipes and this one looks delicious!

    This looks yummy! I am adding this to my list of recipes to try.

    My family (me, hubby, and four boys) have been gluten free since 2001. Things are better now than back then in for nothing else than the number of foods available for when we need a quick meal. It also helps when someone else wants to make something for us.

    We also homeschool and it is awesome how you can work reading labels, grocery shopping, food storage, and meal preparation all into a day of “school.”

    Thanks for the recipe to try!
