Doubling Bread Recipes - Double The Yeast?
0

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I was making the Submarine Sandwich bread which I said was excellent - has good " bread " taste and texture, but when I'm making 2 loaves at once, am I supposed to double the yeast? I have the Fenster Gluten Free 101 book and when you double the bread recipe in that one you don't double the yeast (and some other ingredients are increased but not doubled).

Can someone tell me how to double Annalise Roberts' Submarine bread recipe?

PS yesterday I doubled everything (the yeast included) and not sure if it's just because I left it rising too long but it overflowed the pan and went everywhere. The bread still baked ok but it was like a half-loaf probably because so much of the batter had overflowed.

Thanks in advance,

mamatide

I always double the yeast for a double recipe, but since I always double bread recipes, it's hard to compare rising times for me (in fact I frequently quadrupled recipes in my wheaty days... we eat a lot of bread in this house).

In any case I NEVER just go by the time in a yeast recipe, because the timing changes so much depending on how warm or humid the room is, how warm the liquid in the recipe is, how "lively" the yeast is...

oh, by the way, make sure you haven't used Rapid Rise yeast in a recipe that calls for the regular kind... that will definitely cause an overflow!

I always go by how high the dough has risen. (Yes, that means you have to check more often.) And on the advice of a gluten-free book (I forget which) I put the loaves in the oven just a little sooner than I would for a wheat bread, because it is all too easy to break down the structure of a gluten-free bread if it over-rises (as you discovered!)-- then the whole thing collapses & you have a dense, low bread with irregular grain. Gluten is what holds traditional doughs together; that's why gluten-free is especially hard for bread, which has to support much more height, hence weight than a cake layer or muffin.

Hope that helps! By the way, I've only been gluten free for about 2 weeks, but I've been baking bread for over 35 years, & I've been experimenting in the kitchen like mad since my doctor told me I might have Celiac-- I simply couldn't survive without baking!

Happy baking,

Leah

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
