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

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
