Delicious Hearty Bread w/ 3 add-in options

One hearty bread, with three wonderfully delicious options.  There's a spicy jalapeno cheddar, a hearty five seed-filled bread, or a cinnamon raisin bread.  It may be a bit tricky to find sweet potato flour, but if you can locate it, it adds a depth to the taste.  I find it's pricey, but can be stored in the freezer and since the flavor is strong, you just want to use small amounts per recipe, so it goes far.  If you don't have sweet potato flour, you can replace it with extra brown rice or sorghum flour.  This has been a hit with everyone who's tried it.  I had to get it typed up quickly for our good friends who requested the recipe after I brought some to dinner.  p.s. It's great with butter. Enjoy!
Hearty Bread w/ Jalapeno, Cheddar & Cilantro

Delicious Hearty Bread w/ 3 add-in options
Makes 3 mini loaves or 1 large loaf

Preheat oven to 350F.  Butter 3 mini loaf pans or 1 large loaf pan.

In a mixer combine:
1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
1/3 cup sorghum flour
1/3 cup sweet potato flour
1/3 cup arrowroot starch/flour
1 Tbsp xanthan gum
1 Tbsp rapid yeast
1 1/4 tsp salt

Add and beat 3-4 minutes:
1 cup warm water
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp oil 
2 Tbsp honey 
2 Tbsp maple syrup
3 eggs

Fold in ONE of the following options:
1. Jalapeno Cheddar Bread
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped & loosely packed
1-2 jalapenos, finely chopped
1/2 - 2/3 cup old cheddar, finely chopped (you can use shredded cheese, but I like the larger pieces)
2. Five Seed Bread
2-3 Tbsp sunflower seeds
1 1/2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1-2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
1/2-1 Tbsp poppy seeds
3. Cinnamon-Raisin Bread
Mix together in a small bowl before folding into bread dough:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2-3 tsp water
1/4 - 1/3 cup raisins 

Spread bread into pans, filling them ~2/3 full.  Let bread rise in a warm location ~30 minutes, until the dough is even with the top of the pan.  Bake at 350F for 25 minutes for mini loaves or 40-45 minutes for the large loaf, until nicely browned.

Remove from pan to cool on wire rack.  Slice thin or thick.  Enjoy!
