2 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 c. dry milk powder or non dairy substitute
1 1/2 tsp. egg replacer

Combine all dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Use a flat beater, not dough hook. Dissolve sugar in lukewarm water and mix in yeast. Set aside. Combine shortening and water in saucepan and heat until shortening melts. With mixer on low, blend dry ingredients and slowly add shortening mixture and vinegar. Then add egg and whites. Pour in yeast water and beat at highest speed for 3 1/2 minutes. Texture of dough will be like cake batter. Spoon dough into prepared pans (makes 1 loaf pan and 6 dinner rolls).
