Bette Hagman Recipe
0

8 posts in this topic

Hello, I searched the board and can't find anything but Bette Hagman's flour mix of tapioca,rice, and potato flour. I have read that many people enjoy her bread, and I don't have the money to go buy her book, so I was wondering if anyone could post her bread recipe for sandwiches? Or PM me it if thats better...I'd really appreciate it!

Her mix is 2 parts rice flour, 2/3 part potato flour and 1/3 part tapioca flour.

Ex.

2 cups rice flour

2/3 cup potato flour

1/3 cup tapioca flour

Sift together several times to combine well.

I use this for many things, but I'm pretty happy with quinoa flour lately and am going to try alternate mixtures with that. It just seems finer than the rice (and has a great deal more nutrients!) Anyone else use quinoa flour?

which bread recipe were you looking for?? i have her book, and there are tons of bread recipes in it. are you using a breadmaker or doing it by hand?

here is one that sounds good ( i havnt tried it yet)

fat-free french bread

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour mix

2 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons quick rising yeast

1 teaspoon vineager or dough enhancer

2 egg whites ( room temp)

1 1/2 cups warm water

prepare french bread pan by spraying with vegtable oil, or curve a doubled peice of heavy foil about the length of your cookie sheet to form a mold and spray this.

In the bowl of your mixer, combine the flour mix, xanthan gum, sugar, salt and yeast. Whisk together to blend well. add the vineager, egg whites and water. beat at med. speed for 3 minutes. spoon the dough in the mold to almost full length. smooth the top. cover and let rise for 15 minutes. preheat oven to 400.

bake 1 hour. turn oven to 350 and bake 15 minutes longer. to eat it hot and crusty, tear it apart. it won't cut until it's cooled.the bread keeps for several days, but the crust gets more tender with time.

i hope that helps. let me know if you had a certian kind of bread in mind...and i'll give you that recipe if i have it!

Thanks Lillie for the recipe! I'll have to try that one too. I got a recipe from somebody that is Bette's and its called featherlight bread. I noticed it calls for both egg replacer and eggs, anyone know why this would be? I don't want to have to spend more money on egg replacer. And it calls for unflavored gelatin which I haven't seen in any other recipes...anyone know if eliminating this will significantly change the recipe? Thanks

Hi! We have a couple Bette Hagman cookbooks, and the first (and only) bread my boys like so far is the Featherlight bread. In her books, it says that she uses the Egg Replacer as an extra leavening ingredient, and it is "always optional unless this is the only leavening used in a recipe." From the Egg Replacer box from Ener-G Foods, it says, "...[it] mimics what eggs do in a baking recipe." I found ours at a local health food store for about $6, which is cheaper than buying online once you factor in shipping. The 16 oz box has lasted me for at least 2 months, and I'm not through it yet! And I do a good deal of baking.

Also, about the gelatin--here's what it says in Ms. Hagman's cookbook. "Gelatin is not necessary and can be eliminated if you have a religious or dietary restriction against it. I suggest it because it adds protein, and yeast combines with it to give elasticity to the bread."

Hope this helps a little. And by the way, my boys do like several of the items in The Gluten-free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy...especially the quick mixes for gluten-free "bisquik"; gluten-free cream of mushroom, etc. soup; the cake mixes; and the pizza crusts.

Blessings,

Tori

Thanks Tori! That really does help, it sounds like they are not totally necessary. I may opt not to use them for money's sake. When you made the featherlight bread, did its taste and texture stay the same for more than one day? The only gluten free bread I made was banana bread a few weeks ago, it tasted great fresh out of the oven, but terrible the next day...thanks again

Glad to be of assistance! Honestly, I get so much info and support off this board, it's nice to be a help to somebody else. LOL Anyway...when I make the featherlight bread, it keeps its texture and flavor for probably three days. After that it starts to get a little stiff, and I usually end up trying to freeze some, or use it for garlic toast or toasted cheese (the cheese helps cement it together). It does have a tendency to crumble a bit, (at least when I make it, and I'm new at bread-baking! lol ) but when it does, we try to make the best of it. My boys are young--7, 3, and 2--so when I say "let's make inside out sandwiches!" (by wrapping the cheese and meat around the bread chunks that are left) they think it's a cool new concoction. Thank God for the adaptability of kids!

    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Thank you! My PA said that she still thinks it's celiac....but I don't feel like she's fully explained why. Some people are hard to get a solid answer out of! I think I'm gonna get a second opinion somewhere else.....appreciate the feedback. Makes me feel a little less crazy

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hello Elle Among this online community you are not alone in either your symptoms or how you feel about visiting the doctor.  I for one understand the anxiety that you are going through, my own weird nerve stuff and other puzzling symptoms have had me really scared at times.   So much you are going through could very well be gluten related, it really could.   But if it isn't, in the end it is worth trying to find out what it is going on so you can get the treatment you deserve. After all, it could have a really simple, treatable explanation, once the doctors know what it is. I remember reading on another website something that has helped me with my own health anxiety - if one can summon up the courage to go and see the doctor, one should pat oneself on the back and be proud of oneself for doing the right thing.  I'm not terribly keen on the idea of being a proud person - but I think it was meant in the best sense, and it is always good to do the right thing, even if one does it afraid!  It always makes me feel that bit stronger when I'm in the waiting room at the doctors! There is lots of great advice above.  Do take it and make sure you come back if you need further support. There are some fantastic people here to help.

      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
