My Bread Machine
0

13 posts in this topic

I got a bread machine for Christmas and now I'm wondering if I should return it cause I can't for the life of me get a descent loaf of bread out of it.

The recipe I'm using is in the 125 best gluten free book by Donna Washburn and Heather Butt. They say to put it at 2 hour basic rapid cycle. Well my bread machine has like 3 settings, 70 min rapid cycle which it says that only thier recipe works with it and two other ones, 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 hours or something.

The bread machine is a black and decker all-in-one and from what I'm reading I might as well boot it down the road. I bought it to avoid mixing and rising and it makes absolutely no sense to have one if you have to mix it and rise it outside of the machine. Is there an easy bread recipe? When I try to make it in the machine it turns out much like a bowling ball. As well, its expensive blowing recipes like this.

Honestly, if I can't make it in a bread machine then I'll probably go without bread period as my life of preparing food is a full time job being celiac as it is.

Nathan,

Well, I'll be honest and say that I have never had better luck than when I make my bread by hand. For me it seems to take less time as well, I can mix, rise and bake of a loaf in 2 hours and some of the machines take more than a few hours to get the job done.

But, don't take my honesty as a "give it up" on the contrary, there are lots and lots of folks on this board who swear by their machines and I am sure that they can either give you some advice, or give you a recipe to try.

If you just got the machine for Christmas, give it another try after you get some tips from the people here, it would be a shame to have to give up bread and a great gift.

Take Care!

Thanks for the reply,

Does anyone have a recipe or a way that I can use my bread machine?

Check your grocery store for "Bob's Red Mill" gluten-free bread Mix, it should be in the health food section with the gluten-free flours. Here it runs over $5 a bag.

I hope you are able to enjoy some bread soon! :)

We purchased a Zojirushi BBCC-X20 bread machine recently, and it turns out a good loaf of bread. It makes it in a rectangle - just like the store! (Gluten Free Pantry Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix is our favorite so far). I got the recommendation on machine from this web site. Hope this helps you. Good luck.

I make two loaves of bread in my bread machine every week. It works fine but please note "DO NOT FOLLOW MANUFACTURERS DIRECTIONS ON BREAD MACHINE". Any of Bette Hagman's recipies work well, however, use your bread machine a little differently. Gluten free bread rises the first time great, gets punched down and never rises to the same extent again. It also is a little heavier for the poor machine to mix. Try the following: (a) remove bread pan from machine (B) start bread machine empty on basic cycle. ©premix wets of recipe put in bottom of pan you removed from bread machine.(d) premix drys, put on top of wets in same pan.(e)insert pan into bread machine when it stops for the first rest cycle.(this will not hurt bread machine - I spoke to manufacturer).

This way the bread gets one 20 minute mix, one hour rise, one hour bake. Works great. If your loaves are flat and not nice and roundy on top like wheat bread try decreasing water by one tablespoon and increasing oil by one tablespoon. I also find for a two pound loaf, I am using 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, 2 1/2 teaspoons of xanthum. These ratios are important for the proper chemistry like reaction. The total weight of my liquids (including eggs and sugar) equals 85% of the weight of my flour mixture. This is also important. Good Luck!

The Zojirushi is the best for gluten-free bread that I have found. For gluten-free bread, you really need 2 paddles -- most bread machines just have one.

I use gluten-free Pantry Favorite sandwich bread.

If you don't feel like baking your own, Kinnikinnick (www.kinnikinnick.com) has some very good ready made bread. They'll ship to you from Canada. (It is the only ready made gluten-free bread that I will eat). They have several flavors and all are good.

Good luck.

Donna, what type of bread machine do you have? Am thinking about getting one and thought your method sounded good. So far, I haven't had much luck in making a good loaf of bread in the oven. Has anyone tried the Amranth Bread recipe suggested by Karen Robertson in her bread class? Jo Ann

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
