This delicious, nutritious multi-grain bread is made in a heavy-duty mixer without gluten, dairy and white sugar. It’s sure to become your favorite white sandwich bread. It won’t crumble in your packed lunch. Living Without’s test kitchen gives this recipe two thumbs up – but it does require eggs. To ensure success, use a heavy-duty mixer, not a bread machine.
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons liquid honey
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
2 ¾ White Bread Flour Mix
1. Lightly grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
2. In a bowl, using a heavy-duty electric mixer with paddle attachment, combine eggs, water, oil, honey and vinegar until well blended. With the mixer on its lowest speed, slowly add bread mix until combined. Stop the machine and scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. With the mixer on medium speed, beat for 4 minutes.
3. Spoon dough into prepared pan. Let dough rise uncovered in a warm, draft-free place for 60 to 75 minutes or until it reaches the top of the pan. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.
4. Bake bread in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until internal temperature of loaf registers 200°F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from the pan immediately and let cool completely on a rack.
