If you’ve ever tried to make a homemade gluten free bread using a bread machine, you have probably learned that there can be quite the learning curve. This is especially true for someone who isn’t using a bread machine which was specifically built to handle baking gluten-free breads.
If you’d like to learn more about baking gluten free bread in a bread machine, you’ll want to check out Gluten Free Cooking School. The author recently took the time to write a very informative post which answers some reader questions about baking their own gluten free breads.

2. The bread machine directions says I have to put in the wet ingredients, then the dry, then a small hole for the yeast. That’s not how your gluten free bread recipe goes. Since I’ve never used a bread machine before this one, I’m not sure if I will hurt the machine by not using the paddle and just putting it all in.
Either method should be fine. The reason that I mix the dough in a bowl and then bake the bread without the bread machine paddle, is that I’ve lost the paddle. After years of baking without a paddle, my machine is not showing any ill effects. However, I used to follow the normal bread and you should be able to do that with my recipe without any problems.
