Gluten-Free Beer Bread

I’ve made this several times, and it hasn’t failed me yet. I have a problem keeping it in the kitchen to make sandwiches with!

Original recipe makes 1 9-inch loaf.


2 3/4 cups gluten-free flour blend
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs at room temperature
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle gluten-free beer at room temperature
2 1/4 teaspoons rapid-rise yeast
2 tablespoons milk, or to taste
1 tablespoon poppy seeds, or to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Mix flour blend, buckwheat flour, xanthan gum, sugar, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Beat eggs, vegetable oil, agave nectar, and apple cider vinegar together in a separate large bowl; add flour mixture and beat with an electric mixer until you get a smooth batter. Stir beer and yeast into the batter, increase mixer speed to High, and beat batter for 4 minutes; pour into prepared loaf pan. Brush the top of the loaf with milk and sprinkle poppy seeds evenly over the surface. Cover the loaf with oiled wax paper and let rise until doubled in volume, 30 to 60 minutes.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until set in the middle and the internal temperature of the loaf reaches 210 degrees F (99 degrees C), 35 to 45 minutes.
