I did not use an electric mixer as the box recommends, because I do not own one. But the strength of an arm worked just fine. I also went with the oil option and used veggie oil. The bread was quite good. The crust was a little harder than I care for, but inside was good. The center was nice and moist. Being gluten-free it was different, but still enjoyable.
The downfall with any gluten free bread is they don’t last as long as regular bread. So I think I might split the dough up next time and buy some small bread pans so I can make a more manageable amount. After all, the husband won’t eat most gluten free products.
