1Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
1Tbsp Sugar (I have not tried honey or rice syrup so I don't know if this will work as a sub.)
1 1/2c Water (105 degrees)
2 1/2c GF All Purpose Flour Mix (below)
2tsp Xanthan Gum
1tsp Salt
2 Eggs
1 1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Cider Vinegar
Preheat Oven to 200 degrees.  Once preheated cut oven off.
Grease 9x5 bread pan with olive oil & rice flour.
I Use Nesting Bowls for this recipe.
Combine Dry Yeast & Sugar in Small Bowl, add water & slowly stir till mixed. Set aside while mixing other ingredients (this step is called proofing the yeast).  Yeast should become foamy if it's still active.
Combine Flour Mix, Xanthan Gum & Salt in Large Bowl.
Combine Eggs, Oil & Vinegar in Medium Bowl and beat with mixer till eggs are froathy.
Combine Liquid ingredients & Dry ingredients and stir.  Batter will be like a thick cake batter.
Beat with Mixer for about 3 minutes to develop the xanthan gum.  It is not necessary to have a pastry blade for this step.
Put Pastry mix into the bread pan, cover with a dish towel and place in oven for 60 minutes until dough rises.
Remove towel and set oven for 375 degrees and bake for 40 minutes.
Bread will brown and seperate slightly from pan when done.
Let cool in pan for about ten minutes.  Remove from pan & continue cooling on wire rack.
I like to let my loaves cool completely before slicing.  I also use an electric knife to cut mine, however, I'm sure any seragated knife would work.
(Gluten Free Flour Mix)
3 cups of Brown or White Rice Flour (whichever you prefer)
3 cups of Tapioca Flour
2 cups of Almond Flour (pricey but very nutritious)
1 cup of Sorghum Flour (not very nutritional, however, it can be used instead of corn flour and  it is naturally sweet)
Note: Xanthan Gum is pricey but you will only use a tsp per loaf so it will go a lonnnnggg way.
I bought 1 pound of each of these flours and I was able to make 3 loafs.  You can order these flours from Bob's Red Mill by the case of 4 which is cheaper than the grocery store.  Some Walmart stores carrry "some" of these flours too.

 Crohn's DG 2003 , symptoms included terrible joint and soft tissue pain, just met first cousin who suffers from Reactive Arthritis-explains sooo much. Followed SCD Strictly 2003-06, then modified by adding new things 10-12 days apart to avoid delayed reactions in the form of arthritis symptoms. Scope on 2-5-09 was great! Doc says no symptoms,No scope for 10 years!!!

Thanks for asking Margie.  My dental surgery is scheduled for the 27th of this month.  Meanwhile, my bloodwork after not being on the Humira/Imuran since early Jan. is still holding it's own.  B12 was a little low this month, however, my bloodwork was drawn 8 days prior to my monthly injection.  Sed Rate was 20...hurray! WBC was normal too!  Hopefully I can hang in there for 6 weeks after surgery with no flares.  The general anethesia has me a little freaked this time cause I haven't had any since my resection and I don't know if my response to it will change because of the CD.  So many freaky things happen to me that I never experienced before the diagnosis.  Psoriasis is back on my upper torso and joints are killing me without the Humira.  Sure made me realize just how much the Humira has helped. Sorry to all of you that I've haven't been around much lately.  I'm trying to get the yard ready for spring prior to the surgery cause I know I won't feel like it for awhile afterwards.  Everybody keep praying the jaw necrosis doesn't sneak in on me too.  I can't imagine what I'd be like without my jaw flappin' constantly....the silence would be spooky!  Sniper...hang in there dude...doesn't sound like you've had a good month.
