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

      You are right Dania, you cannot have "mild Coelic" disease and you cannot eat "a bit of gluten here and there" if you've been gluten free for a while. Coelic disease is a lifetime commitment to being gluten free, even if you don't have symptoms, it is still damaging the villi in the gut, which can lead to more serious health problems, (not that Coelic disease is not serious, because it is).  Some people may question whether it is safe to use the same colander as those cooking gluten, but it depends how well it is washed up as it is quite easy to miss bits. Personally, I bought a new one and I would definitely not use the same sieve as the mesh is far too tight not to collect  small amounts of gluten. I'm not too surprised at doctors not knowing all they should know about Coelic disease, it's the same here in the UK where Coelic UK actually advise doctors on the disease.

      Hi Chris, haven't had a chance to read the whole conversation but regarding dairy, if you are suspicious of something, drop it for some time and see. You are still healing so maybe dairy is bothering you now. Also look at the nightshades, corn, dairy, soy, and eggs. I had a horrible time last year. I had muscle twitches, brain fog, pain, was tired,etc. I searched online and decided to drop all of those things I mentioned above. I am not sure what bothered me since I dropped them all at once but i slowly began feeling better. Now, i reintroduced eggs again and sometimes have lactose free milk with my coffee. I recommend eating salmon, tuna, bone broth soups, using olive oil and coconut oil and not eating much or not at all processed food even if it is marked gluten free.

      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
