I can't tell you how amazing this bread is. While I was in NYC, we made this mix at my friend's house, and it was better than any eating out we'd done.
What I mean to say, is that my friend made it. I provided some moral support, of course. And an appetite. At first, it seemed like a bother to me that the directions require you to beat 2 egg whites. I mean, who beats egg whites in recipes anymore?
I'll tell you who. The people who work hard because they want to eat some super-awesome gluten free bread, that's who!

Actually, I think the beaten egg whites make all the difference. The ingredients do not contain any dairy, nor do the directions advise adding any. Therefore, I have decided to take the leap of also going dairy-free. (I have been holding out on this because my previous favorite, the Gluten Free Pantry Bread Mix, contains dry milk).
So I ordered a whole case of the stuff (that's 6). It's not on Amazon, but my friend Jen found it on buy the case: http://www.buythecase.net/products/index.php?page_function=search&keyword=duinkerken&x=0&y=0
So yesterday I tried it in the bread machine. I put the warm water in the machine with the yeast, then beat the egg whites, then added all the ingredients and mixed. It went pretty well. I also put the 2nd (not used in the recipe) egg yolk on top for a crusty top.
So here's what it looked like out of the bread machine:
