The Most Delicious Home-made Gluten Free Bread I've Ever Tasted...

:D You all absolutely have to try this bread. I cannot speak highly enough about its texture, taste, and ease of making it. It has that soft texture that is so familiar. Not crumbly at all!

We served it to our guests over Christmas and we all loved it. It's better fresh than after a couple of days but you don't have to toast it, you don't have to freeze it. It's simply delicious.

So thank you Laurie for this wonderful recipe. I really hope more people will try it and love it as much as we do!

Oh my gosh, this sounds easy enough for even ME. :)

Two questions.....what is garfava flour - - I assume I can get it at my health store? and also, what type of vinegar did you use?

I can't wait to try this!

Garfava is a combo of garbanzo and fava beans. I just have garbanzo so will be trying it with that. On second though maybe I'd better mix it with something so it won't be too beany. I'll have to think on that.

I'm assuming the vinegar is white vinegar.

I didn't use garfava flour. I used brown rice (superfine) and sorghum and it was wonderful. I did use the flax seed (DH is trying to lower his cholesterol and it was recommended as a supplement so this was a happy coincidence).

I usually use cider vinegar so I probably used it this time. I'm sure white is fine too.

Also, the milk can be somewhat warm - I asked Laurie before I made it the first time - but room temp is fine. If it's too warm it cooks the eggs!

Good luck. I hope it turns out as well for you as it did for us.

I was inspired to try this bread tonight after reading the posts. It is wonderful! I used 1 cup superfine brown flour, and 1/2 cup sourgum (no garafava). I don't know what it will be like tomorrow, but the taste and texture still slightly warm from the oven is fabulous. My teenage son, who does not have celiac and eats gluten outside the home, said it was better than regular bread, which I take as a true compliment. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Thanks! Now I can use that Garfava flour that I bought and didn't know what to do with. I just hope it comes out well without the eggs and milk. I usually sub in flax meal for eggs but since it already contains flax that might be overkill. Will try it with the Ener-G egg replacer.

Thank YOU! You really deserve the recognition!!!

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

ps - for anyone who might make the same mistake I did, the first ingredient "gluten free flour" should not include any xantham gum (if you use some prefab gluten-free flour like I did)- the batter gets really thick and the bread is dense! Just stick to your favourite flour blend!

Y'all have inspired me to try this bread. I am not a "baker" and have always relied on Pamela's Amazing Wheat Free bread mix.

1 1/4 cups gluten-free flour

1/4 cup garfava flour

1/2 cup potato starch

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/4 cup flax seed meal

Of the above flours/starches, how was the 1 c rice flour and 1/2 c sorghum flour substituted? Please post exactly what you used. Thank you!

For the 1 1/4 c gluten free flour I used:

1/2 cup superfine brown rice flour

1/4 cup tapioca flour

1/2 cup sorghum flour

For the 1/4 cup garfava flour I used:

-----------------------------------------

1/4 cup sorghum flour

(I have never used garfava flour before so had none but have a LOT of sorghum!)

(for cornstarch, potato starch and flax seed I did not substitute)

Instead of 1 1/4 bups gluten-free flour and 1/4 garfava flour, I used 1 cup super fine brown flour (Authentic Foods) and 1/2 cup sorghum. Potato starch, cornstarch and flax seed meal was unchanged. I also had the eggs at room temperarture, and used milk heated for 30 seconds in the microwave.

I've made it in the machine, too. Just use your machine however you normally do the gluten-free breads. I know they're all different, and I always yank out the kneader for the second time around. Good luck!

:rolleyes: OK all you bread makers out there- I made this bread last night and it turned out really great. I've been cooking gluten free for my husbnd for 18 years and still have my share of flops when it comes to bread; mostly because I still insist on trying to improve it. But after last night, I'm ready to quit experimenting because this is about as good as it gets.

I used warm milk for the liquid; and like one of the other members, I didn't have garfava (or at least I couldn't find it) so I also substituted it with 1/4 c sorghum flour. For the gluten-free flour blend I used the gluten-free gourmet blend of rice, tapioca, potato starch.

I used a 9 x 5 pan, but mine rose full height in about 45 minutes (vs the 80 minutes mentioned in the recipe) This may have been because I always use the 'quick rise yeast' for all my baking or maybe it was the warm milk. I also use my oven for rising by preheating to 200 and then turning it off.

Baked it 40 minutes at 350, but tented with foil after 10 minutes because I like a lighter, softer crust. By the way, I read somewhere that using milk instead of water when making bread makes for a softer crust -and its true.

The end result was a perfect loaf....no sags, no concaves, cooked consisently completely through, nice tender crust, not too hard or tough. The texture reminded me a lot of the regular whole wheat bread you buy, but with a homemade taste. It was soft and springy. It was the perfect accompanyment to a big kettle of homemade potato soup.

I hope you all have a chance to try this recipe. I'm sold enough that I am going to mix up several individual bags of just the dry ingredients (except yeast) so all I have to do is add the the wet, mix and bake.

Regards,

Kay

Okay, the flavor of the bread is great. But I goofed. The loaf is all mis-shapened on the top *sigh*, which is why I got a bread machine, heh heh.

But tell me.....it seems like whether out of the oven, or in a bread machine, the gluten-free breads I bake are always a little gummy. Am I not

baking it long enough? I go by the recipe, but this seems to happen. Thanks for any suggestions, or is this just a characteristic of gluten-free

bread that we will have to live with?

Was this gummy too? There are two breads I always bake, this being one, and neither are ever gummy... The only time I had a gummy bread was when I made pumpkin bread once because I had a lot of pumpkin left over and I threw it all in.. Haha. But to avoid this, cover the top with foil, and lower the temperature, about 10 minutes before it 'should' be done, then bake it for about 20 more instead.

When I use a bread machine I alway brush down the side of the pan while it is mixing so all the flour gets mixed-in. Then when it is down with the rising process I alway smooth out the top so it bakes evenly. You will get an uneven top if you don't.

hope this helps

I tried this recipe in my Zoj-X20 and it came out wonderful! I also do everything mama does for a smooth look.

I really like the texture to this bread. Here are the settings I use on my machine:

Warm: 10 minutes

Knead: 18 minutes

Rise 1: off

Rise 2: off

Rise 3: 55 minutes

Bake: 55 minutes

The texture was the best I've seen. This will really hold up well to the PBJ treatment. No crumbling! :D

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      ...and CoQ10 deficiencies can occur in those taking statin drugs.  Really important to monitor that if you are on statins.

      I guess you must have to be a member then. I don't know because I am a member. It doesn't cost anything & I've never gotten any junk mail from them or anything unpleasant.  Gee, I didn't even think about that when I posted the link. OOPS! Let me know if you need me to copy & paste it because I will if you want.

      Hey, do you have to be a member of Medscape to see the article?  I could not get in pass the sign-in page.  
    • Starting out
      Ugh!  Run from that doctor.  Are you located on Mars?  Kidding aside, here's the deal.  If you go gluten free just to test it out and you feel good, then you might think you have a gluten issue.   A few months or a year go by and you realize that this is HARD.  REALLY HARD.  So, you start to cheat.  You get sloppy.  You start sharing a toaster.  Your symptoms come back, but you don't worry about it or maybe you start to get violently ill.  Symptoms so different from your old symptoms that you think you must have something else.  (You could be the type of person who makes a decision and sticks with it.  But those are rare folks.)   I could go on with more stories, but type in lymphoma in our forum's search box.  Look at member's who were misdirected by their physicians and who have had celiac disease all along.  Now they are dealing with cancer.   It is not my intent to scare you into thinking you have cancer.  The odds of you having it are slim and none.  I am trying to scare you into finding another doctor who really CARES about you and follows a normal standard level of care (like reading currant medical journals or checking Dr. Google, like my ER neighbor doctor does because he can not know everything!) It's just a simple blood test.  So easy.  If negative, then give the diet a try!
    • "Celiac disease prevents absorption of iron"
      Well, you are no longer anemic, so that's great!  As long as you are healed, you should be able to absorb iron easily.   Of course, there could be other issues that would prevent you from absorbing iron as villi damage can occur from many things other than celiac disease.   Want to know for sure where you stand?  Ask your doctor to check your iron and iron store levels the next time you have a physical.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
