Thanks Jillian for letting us know about the gluten-free bread basket. I was wondering if it was any good. You don't have to toast it even? That is too awesome!


No I swear you don't have to toast it; I couldn't believe it!!!! I had been wanting to try it for awhile. They are located about 10 minutes from Woodbury Commons which is an awesome outlet center in NY so I figured I would go there the next time I went up there. But luckily they were at the Suffolk County Celiac Vendor Fair in West Babylon, NY last month. I tried it and nearly dropped to the floor. I couldn't believe that I was eating untoasted bread and it tasted great. I bought a loaf of the sandwich bread and got cold cuts as soon as I got home and brought sandwiches to work everyday that week.

:D

I have finally reached near perfection with Carol Fenster's basic bread. Leah - you'd love it. She offers several flour blends to choose from - I used the sorghum with the almond option instead of bean flour (I can give more details on that if you need but it's all in the book Gluten Free 101).

I had posted a while back about gluten-free bread falling after taking it out of the oven. Well, this time I left it in 10 minutes longer and it's fabulous. I mean we-all-had-untoasted-sandwiches-for-lunch fabulous!

I also tried the fennel option (mix in 1Tbsp fennel and 1Tbsp molasses before baking) and it's truly amazing. A hint of licorice scent and graininess especially toasted with butter.

So I'm quite satisfied with my bread options at the moment. It's got a springy texture, it's not crumbly and it even tastes good raw.

I can't encourage you strongly enough to give it a try.

I have one for breadsticks :D

Soft and Chewy Breadsticks

1/4 cup shorting
3 tablespoons honey
2 eggs
1 tablespoon yeast
1 cup unflavored yogurt (So Nice makes a dairy free, gluten free yogurt)
1/2 cup potato starch
1 1/2 cups cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon vinegar
Topping: Kosher salt and/or other herbs, sesame seeds, ect.

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients. Mix well to remove lumps. The dough will be quite wet. Place dough in a pastry bag with a large round tip (or use a plastic lunch bag with a bit of a corner cut off). Pipe dough into long strips (5-6 inches is nice) on greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with toppings. Bake 10-12 minties, until golden brown.

Try one Manna from Anna bread mix. You won't believe it and will agree it's the best bread out there!!

This recipe sounds great.

Do you use traditional or fast-acting yeast? I note no rising time nor warm liquids so was wondering.

Thanks in advance...

I ditto about Breads from Anna being wonderful. It is a light, fluffy whole wheat type bread. I'm making the Pamela's bread mix today for the first time today so I'll post how it turns out. I've heard it's great as well and since her other items are so great I'm guessing the bread will be pretty good as everyone who's had it stated (on another thread somewhere on ohere).

I have tried about 5 kinds of gluten free bread including several store bought kinds and several home baked kinds from scratch as well as mixes and I have not found any that were that great. Does anyone know of any bread recipes that taste anywhere close to regular wheat bread? I'm really craving sandwiches and would LOVE to be able to eat a good tomato sandwich.


Hi
I love the Sunflower Flax Rice Bread from Kinnikinnick. It is wholegrain and dairy free. I also have an a egg allergy and it contain no eggs which is very hard to find a bread without eggs. It is frozen but can be thawed and used as fresh bread. Also good toasted and spread with gluten-free peanut butter.
Another egg free bakery item is ElPeto Brown Rice Hamburger buns. Can be toasted or thawed in microwave and used as fresh. Both much tastier than the ungluten free baked bread I use to eat before being diagnosed.

Okay - for me Breads from Anna is much better than Pamela's amazing gluten free bread. It is the consistency and taste that I like better about the Anna's bread. With Pamela's you still get that spongy texture (or I did) that Anna's doesn't have.

Wow, thanks for all the help! I just bought a bread mix from Kinnikinnik(sp?) that I will try. I will also look at Anna's bread mix, it sounds like it might be worth a try.
Today I found hope!!! My wife and I went to Wild Oats and I tried thier gluten free scone, and it was sooo good. It tasted just like regular...I was very happy.
Thanks again for all the help!

Wholefoods now makes some sun dried tomato bread which is quite yummy. It may have been out for a while but I just found out about it. It tastes almost as good as it smells but of course is not really sandwich bread - just great with dinner!


I really like Whole Foods' bread too! I love the sandwich bread (better than any of the other already made ones I have tried, and I don't have a bread maker, and don't want to get another one, cause I already broke one of them). I like the regular sandwich bread and the sun dried tomato bread too!!! YUMMY!

I agree about that sun dried tomato bread - just had it last weekend at a support group meeting for the first time. Is their gluten-free Bakeshoue sandwich bread the same consistency as the sdt bread? I could not get over how great the texture was, in addition to the great taste!

I tried the gluten free basket bread and did not like it but that might be just me. I thought it had a horrible after taste. No matter what bread I try I always come back to good ole faithful "Kinnikinicks White Sandwich bread" It is the closest I have found in a supermarket.

You should try to find a copy of the Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread" We have it here and have tried a few of the breads. The Quinoa bread is the best so far, but there is another one using yogurt (not so good if you are also dairy free.) I find that all the home made ones are the best for sandwiches.

I LOVE tomato sandwiches, and my dw had to find a recipe for good bread ASAP so I could at least have some comforty food while I was healing post-dx.

Hope that helped a little. I have not had much luck with the store bought breads. I find they all taste like cardboard! ;)



Aloha,
Can you please post this recipe for the Quinoa bread? Thanks!

Is this it? (scroll down to the quinoa option)??? I'd give it a try myself if this were the one.
