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

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
