– Be sure to use 1:1 gluten-free flour, or your bread will not turn out properly. If you don’t have 1:1 gluten-free flour, you can make your own by combining equal parts gluten-free all-purpose flour and starch (I like to use arrowroot or tapioca starch).

– You can use any type of milk for this recipe, although I find that whole milk gives the best results.

– If you want to make a dairy-free version of this bread, you can substitute the butter for coconut oil and the milk for almond milk.

– This bread will keep well at room temperature, in an airtight container, for up to 5 days.
