2 tbsp dried rubbed sage 25 mL  
2 tbsp dried savory 25 mL  
11⁄2 tsp celery seeds 7 mL  
2 eggs 2  
11⁄4 cups water 300 mL  
1⁄4 cup vegetable oil 50 mL  
1 tsp cider vinegar 5 mL  



  • 9- by 5-inch (2 L) loaf pan, lightly greased
  1. In a large bowl or plastic bag, combine sorghum flour, brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, sugar, xanthan gum, yeast, salt, parsley, dried onion, sage, savory and celery seeds. Mix well and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, using a heavy-duty electric mixer with paddle attachment, combine eggs, water, oil and vinegar until well blended.
  3. With the mixer on its lowest speed, slowly add the dry ingredients until combined. With a rubber spatula, scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl. With the mixer on medium speed, beat for 4 minutes.
  4. Spoon into prepared pan, smoothing top. Let rise, uncovered, in a warm, draft-free place for 60 to 75 minutes, or until dough has risen to the top of the pan. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  5. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove from the pan immediately and let cool completely on a rack.
