GF Basic Bread Recipe (revisited)

 I took another look at my basic GF "White Flour" style bread, I have been working on this for a while and I think I have made it much better than it was.

 Right now I only have the recipe in U.S. measurements as I have been testing it and it is easier when you grow up with those measurement methods to stick with it but as the flours absorb moisture they can react different so measuring by weight is the only way to get the same loaf of bread every time.
 I will be converting it to weight shortly (would do it now but ran out of rice flour. ;-) )

4 cups GF flour *
1 pkg Yeast *** 1 1/3 C water **
2 eggs
1 tbsp honey (2 if you like)
 2 tbsp butter or oil (I like the flavor of butter)
1/4 - 1/2 tsp Salt (to taste)
4 tsp Psyllium Husk powder used instead of Xantham and Guar gums, IMHO it works better has more health benefits and does not give me a stomach ache.

* New version coming that is so much better than the old one.
** May need more, may need less.
*** Bulk Yeast package says 2 1/4 tsp = 1 pkg.

A note about my flours I use.

  1. If you use quick rise yeast let it bloom in the water for a few hours (may need to add a touch more when you make the bread) to get the yeasty bread flavor.
    I recommend just using normal yeast.
    the quick rise will rise quick, then fall if left and it does not impart the nice yeast flavor you are looking for.
