The Most Delicious Home-made Gluten Free Bread I've Ever Tasted...
0

341 posts in this topic

I brought a freshly-baked loaf to a couple I met recently and they were just so excited. The (Celiac) woman said it had been years since she'd had a slice of bread that wasn't previously toasted.

She was diagnosed after years and years and years of illness and after literally being sent home to die. Very sad story. She was just so happy to be diagnosed as a Celiac. Can you imagine? I guess sadly many of you can indeed imagine.

Anyway, it made me feel really good to be able to share this bread with this couple.

Did you mean you used brown rice for the gluten-free flour and sorghum for the garfava? Would you please let us know exactly what you used for all the flours listed in the original recipe?

Thanks. lm

I didn't use garfava flour. I used brown rice (superfine) and sorghum and it was wonderful. I did use the flax seed .....

See my post #13 under this thread for what I used. The short answer is yes.

I haven't seen this sorghum flour anywhere. Have been to Whole Foods, Central Market (a larger, even nicer Whole Foods), and two large Asian Supermarkets here in Dallas.

I'm wondering if this is a real Flour, or a starch flour. A real flour will have fiber & protein listed on the nutrition label. A starch flour will have neither, only calories.

If someone that has some sorghum flour would be so kind as to look at the label and let me know, then I could figure out what to sustitute it with.

Thanks, lm

I'm looking at my bag of Authentic Foods Sorghum FLour Superfine -- for a 3 TBSP serving size, there are 2 g of Dietary fiber, 6g of Sugar, and 2.6 g of protein.

I bought mine at the local health food store in Needham Massachusetts -- places that stock Authentic Foods brand flours should be able to order it as well. I think you can also order it from Twin Valley Mills.

I buy my sorghum flour from the gluten-free bulk section of my HFS.

for those questioning that flour, i don't even use it in the original mix. it's a flour, not a starch, though.

Okay, I was taking a break from the great gluten-free bread baking project this week as I've been getting a little frustrated with all the flops...but you've inspired me to try again. I even found garfava flour while doing my regular grocery shopping at Kroger, so maybe that's a good sign :P Of course it's just dawned on me that I'm missing cornstarch, so it might have to wait until tomorrow.

Anyway, I have one very critical question as this seems to be my biggest challenge. What's the best way to replace the eggs? If I use Ener-G, exactly how much do I use to replace 2 eggs and 2 egg whites?? And should I actually "mix" the egg replacer and water, then add to other ingredients, or should I add egg replacer powder to the dry ingredients and increase the water??? It seems everywhere I look for advice, there's a different suggestion, though so far none of them had resulted in success.

Either way, I'm actually looking forward to trying this, so at the very least you've given me renewed hope. :D

I've made this a couple times vegan.

I think I need to bake it a little more as it is a little gummy but my children love it and so do I. I've been using Annalise Roberts bread mix (1 cup) and her muffin mix (1/2 cup). I think next time I'll stick totally with the bread mix and see if that makes a difference.

I also used 3 egg equivalent for ener-g egg replacer.

It doesn't turn out with a rounded top but none of my homemade breads have. They still taste good though.

for what it's worth, my actual original recipe did call for the egg-replacer instead of the eggs.

does the bread taste "beany"? i bought some chocolate chip cookie mix once, and when i made the cookies, all i could taste was that bitter chickpea flavor. i've been very hesitant have anything to do w/ bean flour since.

i am excited though to try this bread, as i just got a full time job, and was looking for something to take w/ me for lunches!

Can someone tell me if there is a difference between "Flax Seed Meal" and "Milled Flax Seed"? If so, where can I find Flax Seed Meal at? Thanks so much. I can't wait to make this bread.

I haven't used the garfava flour. You can use any combo of gluten free flours.

Check out my new avatar! :D It's a picture of Lorka's bread, but I baked it!

I made it exactly like the recipezaar recipe (I used eggs and milk) except the baking pan had about the same volume, but rather than 9x5 it was 11x4.

I think it tastes good, but the test will be whether Ty eats it and the real test will be whether Ty's dad, a self-proclaimed bread addict, likes it.

Oh my, this is sooooo.... GOOD!

I thought I was eating wheat bread!!!

My darling husband has voluntered to quit having bread in the house, bless him. I offered to bake him some gluten-free bread and since so many were raving about this bread recipe, I gave it a try. Unfortunately, I let it rise too much and it fell after I took it out of the oven, but we sliced it anyway and then toasted it.

Did I say this was really good!!!??? I could sit down and eat half a loaf all by myself. I think he'll be happy with this substitute. He especially likes whole wheat and this tastes so much like it, and it has the fiber he wants.

I used only water (no milk), used arrowroot instead of cornstarch, and used flax meal I had ground myself (flax seed in a blender - works like a charm). It really has too many eggs for me, so I'm going to try it without and see what happens. I can't use Enger-g egg replacer because of the corn it. Any suggestions from you eggless bakers?? It already has flax, so probably can't use that.

Hi,

We are eggless as well. One good eggless option is to use some applesauce as a binder, but you still need another rising agent. Here is an egg replacer recipe. It calls for baking powder, so here is a recipe for corn free baking powder. Hope this is helpful.

Well I thought I would add my two cents in about this bread recipe!!!! In one word it was wonderful.I had so many flours that wouldn't by themselves make a recipe of anything so I just used all these different flours . I wasn't sure what I would end up with plus I'm not a wonderful bread maker.... I don't know what got into me but I experimented & it was soooo good. My husband ate half the loaf !!!! By the way he is not celiac. So I made a hit with the bread. The real test was with the kids ..... when they got to eat a slice they raved about how soft it was....there went the other half loaf....

The best thing about it for me was it is so easy....

hope you all try it.

Yep, it's good. You can use any flour combo. I use Annalise Roberts flour combo since I have some mixed already. I just added some amaranth but haven't tried that loaf yet.

    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
    • Thank you so much for responding, it's so hard to go on this journey of questions and Drs. I really appreciate the time you took to respond. God bless you 💖
    • Do you have copies of your blood test results? Can you post them? Don't forget to list the reference ranges. Is the TTG the only celiac test they did?  Do you have a copy of your pathology report? Get it if you don't. How many biopsies did they take & from what areas? Were you eating gluten right up until the biopsy?
    • I got them on the back side of my knees too. All the literature points out knees & elbows but doesn't mention the "behind the knee" portion of your leg. I eventually got them ON the knees itself but that was one of the last places to present. I also got them on the inside bend of my arm instead of the elbow and just like the knees, it eventually presented on my elbows. Not to be forgotten; the literature also states it can present anywhere on the body. If you found those links I've posted about how a dh biopsy is done correctly then print them out & take them with you to SHOW them. Any derm should be able to follow the directions or they should turn in their license.  As to them saying herpes, well duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, dh does have a herpes like presentation. That's why they call it dermatitis herpetiformis! Remember, they work for YOU, not the other way around. Insist. Make sure you're still eating gluten. Let us know how it goes. The best of luck to you!
