Sounds like too much liquid.

So I discovered! After adding flax it came out much better but I think I need to reduce the yeast by 1/2tsp since I'm still getting the uneven funky rising thing going on but its like 3-4 inches instead of the 6-8 it was doing without the flax.

For the book you have right now, have you considered selling digital copies? The price of shipping makes the book pretty expensive and is a major drawback, at least for me. I'm spoiled by Amazons free shipping:)

I haven't considered it but that is a good idea! Let me get my head around it and I will let you know!!!

If anyone wants to do any testing for this new book, please send me a PM asap! (Yeast breads, especially!)

Anyone know how well this doubles? I want to try it in a commercial sized pan which usually requires doubling of the recipe.

Thanks!

Help, please. I made this bread last week and it is delicious. However, it did not raise over the pan (as some have stated) and then shrunk after baking and taking out of the oven. It was probably 2 1/2 in. high. What am I doing wrong? My ingredients are room temp., yeast is new, etc. I beat it with my flat beater on my Kitchen Aid. Should I have used the other beater to incorporate more air into it? I'm making it again today and want it to be like everyone else experiences. Thanks.

I double the recipe with no issues. I make 4 loaves at a time.

I should have been clearer:) Commercial pans are 16" long and you end up with a loaf the size of a loaf like you would buy from a store. Not every recipe works for using these pans, for example banana bread.

Edit cause I'm stupid, it was another awesome bread recipe I did yesterday thats easier but I think this one beats it on the taste and chewiness factor.

I need help with this recipe. The first time I made it turned out great but the next 4 times it hasn't worked at all.. The "problem" it that I don't remember what "gluten-free flour" blend I used the first time. I think I used something with sorghummel but I don't remember..

# 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

# 2 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum

# 2 teaspoons active dry yeast

# 1 teaspoon salt

# 2 eggs

# 2 egg whites

# 1 cup water or 1 cup milk

# 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

# 2 tablespoons honey

# 2 teaspoons vinegar

Does anyone have a good flour blend recipe?

Is the water supposed to be warm or cold?

I used 1 Cup Sorghum, 1/4 cup brown rice flour and 1/4 cup white rice flour for the gluten-free flour and to replace the garfava flour. You want the water to be about 110F to help the yeast rise. Comes out perfect every time!:)

Large eggs are the standard for baking.

How long does this bread stay fresh? Is it good for everyday sandwich making?

You might want to read the whole thread - several recipes are posted.  I do not think Lorka will see your post - she posted in 2007

    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
