Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread
1 1/4 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil, or 4 Tbsp butter

3 1/4 cup Bob's Redmill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour

If you have a bread machine.
Step 1: Add all ingredients, in the order listed, into a bread machine loaf pan.
Step 2: Place pan in the bread machine and select "gluten-free" mode, then start. If you don't have this setting, override the program and allow it to knead for 16-20 mins. After 3-5 minutes of kneading, gently scrape down the ingredients stuck on the sides of the pan with a spatula.
Step 3: Using GF setting - The bread machine will take care of the rest including the rise and baking, It will beep when done, about 2 hrs and 15 minutes from the start. No GF setting - allow to rise for 1 cycle (GF bread only needs 1 rise, and no punch down), then 1 hour for bake.
If you don't have a bread machine.
Step 1: Add all ingredients, in the order listed, into a mixing bowl.
Step 2: Use a stand-up mixer with the kneading attachment, or simply use those muscles to knead the dough until homogenous. This will get sticky, my friends.
Step 3: Gently transfer dough to a greased baking pan. Cover with a kitchen towel, leave in a warm place and allow to rise for 1 hour. Once it has about doubled in size, it's time to bake.
Step 4: Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake bread for 25-30 minutes, or until cooked all the way through. If it's browning on the top too quick, cover with foil, and return to continue baking until cooked through.
When I was in Girl Scouts, I can remember we had planned this "Spa Day" with the girls so we could earn some sort of a Self Care badge. The mums came together and helped us set up different stations where each of us could be pampered. For example we did nail painting, hand massages, foot baths, etc. And then we also included a potluck-style luncheon that featured healthy foods and treats. One of the mums made these "tea sandwiches" which consisted of: bread, butter, cucumber, and sea salt. At first, I was like. . .um, what? But once I gave them a taste, they were sooo refreshing! The combo of cooled cucumbers + sea salt + creamy butter. OMG.
My point of sharing that story - because this bread is SO delicious for Cucumber + Butter Sammies. I'll share the easy recipe below, and you let me know if you give them a try & what you think!
