There are some points needed to know before making gluten free bread. Gluten free dough is different from regular dough in many ways. Gluten is the protein which helps dough rise and hold its shape. The dough does not rise, and rips easily without gluten so additional ingredients are needed in gluten free recipes to ensure rising and structure. Gluten free dough does not need a lot of kneading. It is moist and more like a cake batter so you can make it using an electric mixer if you are not making it in a bread maker. Gluten free dough also needs less time to rise but longer time to cook than regular dough.
Because of all these differences, the best option to easily make gluten free bread is to make it in a bread maker, especially in the one with a separate gluten free setting. The texture of gluten free dough may easily yield a heavy and rubbery loaf so it is very important to follow the amount of ingredients strictly in the recipe below even if the consistency of the dough seems different to you than regular bread dough.
