“Delicious recipe! I’ve been looking for a good, inexpensive, healthy rice bread ever since I was diagnosed with celiac disease almost 2 years ago…this is exactly what I was looking for!! It’s so moist and has great texture when cooked according to recipe instructions (yea, I could’ve failed to do that at the first time and learned that the bread indeed is no good when you don’t stick to them:D).”
