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

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
