    Default Gluten Free Bread

    Wish me luck..

    I'm hopeful I just turned my express bake recipe (bread machine) into a GF recipe for Noah.. lol

    I swapped out regular flour with a GF flour mix, and instead of yeast put GF baking powder in. I also added a little guar gum to help it stick together a bit better.
    The rest of the recipe stayed the same.

    So what do you think? Will it be a flop? Or will it work? Guess we'll find out in an hour or so!

    no one has anything to say about Gluten/Yeast free bread ? lol

    Well, it's cooked. Didn't rise much, so I imagine it will be dense.. taste test hasn't occured yet. Will post when I taste test. lol

    Apparently Angelo's Bakery now offers gluten-free bread. Not sure what the price is though...

    Noah spat it out. So did the dog. Apparently it didn't taste that great

    Back to the drawing board!!

    (Metro has one bread that is gluten/yeast free, but its $9/loaf! and it isn't even fresh! it's frozen!!!- this has been the only bread I've found that Noah can eat so far!)

    Aren't there a few in the recipe book that comes with our breadmaker? Never tried them, don't know if they're any good.

    any recipes either of you can share that are GF/Yeast free would be awesome!

    I really appreciate it. I'm now out of rice flour, so I'll have to head out to Arva Flour mill !!

    Here is my favorite for the breadmaker ... it is most like white bread from 'before' having to go gluten free ... but they all tend to be a little dense compared to normal bread ... if he cannot have yeast they will be even denser for sure but the flavor of the flours is the key ... I have been playing with replacing some of my flours with nut flours and coconut flour ... yum

    But here are a couple I use.

    White Bread
    1 C. rice flour

    3/4 C. tapioca flour

    2 T. plus 1 t. sugar

    1 3/4 t. xanthan gum

    1/3 C. dry milk powder

    3/4 t. salt

    1 1/2 eggs (large) slightly beaten

    3/4 C. plus 2 T. water (120 degrees)

    2 T. butter (melted)

    2 1/4 t. rapid rise yeast

    1/2 t. vinegar

    Mix together all dry ingredients. Mix together all liquids, except melted butter. Put liquids in bread machine, then put dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and add yeast. Put butter in each of four corners. Set machine to rapid rise.
    Here is another I have tried ... it is sweet and great to add cinnamon and raisins too

    Bread maker GF bread

    3 large eggs
    1˝ cups very warm water
    3 tbsp olive oil
    3 tbsp liquid honey
    1˝ teasp salt
    1/2 cup tapioca starch
    1/4 cup soy flour
    1 cups brown rice flour
    1 cup chickpea flour
    3/4 cup potato starch
    1 tbsp xanthum gum
    2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

    Place ingredients in bread machine in order listed.

    Select program 9 (gluten-free), 1.5 lb loaf, medium crust, “Start“.

    Cool on wire rack when baked.

    thanks. I don't think we can try adding nut flours or nuts anything yet into Noah's diet lol

    I'm trying to find something good to use as a replacement for Yeast. Any ideas?

    Was this recent though ... cause while I try to make most of my own foods from scratch 'sandwich' bread is the one thing I can never quite get right so I still buy a loaf for a BLT once in a while and since 2005 I have never found a loaf of GF bread for under $5 .... are you talking about their Ezikiel breads - cause those are NOT gluten free ... spelt contains gluten?

    IME gluten free products have risen EXTREMELY fast this past year some doubling in price ... with the rice shortage in other parts of the world driving up one of the main ingredients in most GF breads manufactuers passed that increase on to consumers.

    Leigh ... my sisters is the Celia baker aka invetor of recipes to try in my family ... her advice for replacing yeast in a recipe is:

    Ingredients:
    •Baking soda
    •Lemon juice
    Preparation:
    1. Add all ingredients according to the recipe.

    2. Then, add in equal parts baking soda and lemon juice to equal the amount of yeast called for in the recipe.

    3. Bake as usual.

    Tips:

    1. Dough does not need rise time when made with yeast substitute.
    2. The baking soda and lemon juice need to be added last for the reaction to work properly.

    3. For best results, use fresh baking soda.

    Also which Gluten Free flour mix are you swapping out with? That might affect the texture and flavor as well?

    Here is some info my sister shared with me when I was starting out:

    Wheat Substitutes

    In baking, the following quantities equal 1 cup of wheat flour:
    • 1 cup yellow or white corn flour
    • 1 cup corn meal: cook it with the recipe's liquid before using
    • 5/8 cup potato flour
    • 3/4 cup potato starch
    • 7/8 cup buckwheat (1 cup minus 2 TBS)
    • 7/8 cup rice flour
    • 1 and 1/3 cups ground rolled oats
    • 1 and 1/8 cups oat flour
    • 3/4 cup soybean flour
    • Use only 20 per cent soy flour in recipe, decrease temperature by 25 degrees.
    • Some soy flours are low fat. If the one you are using is not, cream with the shortening or butter or mix with the liquid.
    • 1 cup millet flour
    • 1 cup tapioca
    • 1/2 cup ground nuts or seeds
    • Other substitutes:
    • amaranth
    • pea flour
    • quinoa
    • sorghum

    Tips for substituting for wheat flour:
    • Lower the temperature a little, lengthen the time a little.
    • Add 1/2 tsp. baking powder per cup of substitute flour.
    • Refrigerating dough 1/2 hour helps improve texture.
    • Don't bake anything thicker than 4 inches! (Try to stick to half that.)

    For thickening, the following quantities equal 1 TBS of wheat flour:
    • 1/2 TBS cornstarch
    • 1/2 TBS potato flour or starch
    • 1 TBS tapioca flour
    • 1 &1/2 TBS arrowroot
