Rustic Peach Bread

This delicious bread is mostly savory with just a touch of sweetness from the peaches. It’s a little dense, but man, does it ever hit the spot for anyone with a hankerin’ for a good (and not obviously Gluten Free, like the crappy ones in the freezer section of the grocery store [blech!]) piece of bread.

It’s really crusty too…

…in a good way!

Rustic Peach Bread – Vegan and Gluten Free


  • 1 cup HOT water
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 4 tbsp dry active yeast
  • 5 tbsp granulated vegan sugar
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 1 1/2 cups tapioca flour
  • 3 tsp xanthan gum
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup fresh peaches, peeled and chopped


Combine hot water, non-dairy milk, yeast and sugar into large mixing bowl and proof yeast until foamy. Once foamy, add vinegar and olive oil. Stir well.

In separate bowl, mix together white rice flour, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum and sea salt. Combine with other ingredients just until well blended.  Fold in peaches and spoon into 8″ x 4″ loaf pan. Let rise about 1 1/2 hours in a warm place.

Preheat oven to 350 °F  and bake bread for about 45-50 minutes, or until top of loaf is golden brown.

Store in airtight container, but it’s best fresh from the oven drizzled with a little olive oil and cinnamon. :) Also amazing with jam…

    is it possible to use an all purpose gluten free flor for this recipe? if so, how mch should I use?

      Hi Debbie,

      While I’ve never tried it with an all purpose gluten-free mix, I can’t tell you for sure whether it will work or not. Worth a shot, though, I would think. You would just need to replace all the gluten-free flours with the equivalent amount of apgf flour.

    Looks amazing. Everything you do looks amazing. How do you do it? BTW have you seen this new website that Jenn from the CinnamonQuill put up?


    Another brilliant idea from another brilliant GF baker.

    This looks amazing! I never would have thought to put peaches in bread. Genius. I still haven’t made gluten-free bread but this recipe makes me want to try.

    Thank you for your lovely comment! Can’t believe your husband glutened you- he must have felt so guilty afterwards. Mine’s still going on and it’s day 3 post glutening. What meals do you usually have if you’ve been glutened? xxx

    • allyson says:

      Yeah, he did feel pretty terrible about it! Ya know, I have had good luck with not getting glutened in restaurants (although it happened once while eating Mexican ;\ )… I usually do it to myself: preparing a sandwich or oats for the kiddies, or accidentally taking a swig of my hub’s beer rather than my own flavorless GF beer… that will put my tummy in knots for days! I’m sorry your jaunt to the Indian restaurant left such a bad outcome on you. :( <3 Hope your doing better by now. xxx

    I’ve never put peaches in bread before, but it sure sounds like a good idea! Fresh peaches are one of my favorite things about summer.

    I’ve never thought of putting peaches in bread – but why not? It sounds like a great idea … and a satisfying loaf.

  10. Oh. My. Goodness. That looks soooooo good!

    Oh my, that looks amazing! Maybe with a little Earth Balance on top and something curried to go alongside it?
