2 c white rice flour
1 c tapioca flour
3 t xantham gum
1 1/2 t salt
Squeeze of honey
1 1/2 c lukewarm water
2 T rapid-rise yeast
2 T butter, melted
3 egg whites, beaten slightly
1 t vinegar

In mixer, place flours through salt and blend on low.
Dissolve honey in water and add yeast, waiting until it foams a bit, then blend into dry ingredients.
Add butter, egg whites and vinegar into dry ingredients and beat on high for 3 minutes.

To form loaves, spoon dough onto greased and cornmeal-dusted cookie sheets in 2 long French-loaf shapes. Slash diagonally a few times.

Cover loaves and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 25 minutes.
