How To Make Gluten Free Bread For One In Under 5 Minutes!

Homemade gluten free bread any time I want? Yes please!

On Thanksgiving Day a few years ago, I was a desperate mom in a desperate situation. I hadn’t planned a gluten-free bread option for my son Kell ahead of time, and I was scrambling to come up with something in time for dinner. There was no time to make a full loaf using my homemade gluten-free bread recipe (it’s the best!)…I needed something quick! That’s when I discovered “Gluten Free Bread In A Cup,” which ended up saving the day, AND becoming one of our go-to bread options. Not only is it fast, but it’s good too!

The only problem with the bread-in-a-cup was that it wasn’t really a traditional sliced bread shape, which was somewhat limiting. But shortly after that, a good friend shared an idea with me that turned out to be a brilliant solution to this problem!

Instead of baking the bread in a cup, my friend Sharon decided to try cooking it in one of those sandwich-shaped storage containers that you can find at the grocery store (or online, of course.) These containers are the perfect shape to cook up enough gluten-free bread for one sandwich! Genius, right?? Here’s how you can make delicious gluten-free bread for one right in your microwave. 🙂

Gluten Free Bread For One

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp water
  • 3 Tbsp buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup GF flour blend
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine the egg, water, and buttermilk and mix well.

Then add the flour blend, baking powder, and sugar to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.

Pour the mixture into an uncovered sandwich container.

Put the container in your microwave and cook for 85 seconds. (Could take slightly more or less time, depending on your microwave, so keep an eye on it.)

When the timer goes off, prepared to be amazed by warm, spongy, gluten-free bread!

Transfer the bread onto a rack to cool completely, then cut into two slices.

Use your bread slices to make any sort of sandwich your heart desires! I love using it for grilled cheese sandwiches, but I’ve also used it for peanut butter and jelly with equally delicious results!
