Great Egg Bread Recipe
0

10 posts in this topic

I am pretty new to the gluten free diet, since being diag. in Sept. 2004.

Since being diagnosed I have been on the mission of searching for that bread alternative that would satisfy my need. I have tried several of the brands available and much to my dislike have began trying to bake my own. I have several (reg.) cookbooks that I have been experimenting with trying to alter them into gluten-free breads and work pretty good when I use cornstarch and potato starch in place of reg. self rising wheat flour. I find that Red Star Yeast works best and it is gluten-free. The corn & potato starch work wonders for flavor as well as giving a good texture.

Xanthan gum helps too, it is a bit expensive at certain places, yet, cheaper when ordered online. For those of you who suffer from the constipation problems Guar gum would be good (of course for those of you who can tolerate this) due to it's mild laxative effect.

I also just got a good cookbook from my mom for Christmas, it's "The Gluten Free Kitchen" by Roben Ryberg. For those of you who do not already have this one, I reccomend it highly. She has plenty of great recipes for all kinds of baked goods as well as dinners/appetizers etc..

For those of you who enjoy english muffins and have not already found a good alternative, I recently just ordered "Sterks" brand bagels, and they were so yummy, however, they were just like an english muffin in taste and texture...WONDERFUL!!!!!

Happy Baking to you all and good luck!!! :D

Baking breads has been a long process of adjustment for me as well. The bean flours provide the best texture but are so strong that I cannot stand the smell. I used a recipe from this site last week and have had great success. I even sent a loaf to another celiac in my church this morning. It was based on a rice flour, potato starch, and tapioca combination. I added a little of the bean flours for the texture but not so much that I could taste it and it worked quite well.

I do admit that I miss those loaves of bread made from freshly milled wheat!

Hi Donna,

I would love to try your recipe! I am going crazy trying to to get the bread thind down. I know that gluten-free bread will never truly be like the original as we all know, however, if you have any you could share, I would me most grateful to you. :D

My favorite bread was potato bread and at this point I am just not able to get anything even close. Does anyone have any ideas for this type of bread.

Thank you,

Sarah

Here is that recipe...

I found the copy I had made of the recipe I was raving about. I have experimented a little and found that a table spoon or two of bean flour adds to the texture without giving it a strong taste. Also, adding just a little extra buttermilk on top of the dough after it is finished kneading in the machine gives the top a smooth look that just made me grin with delight. If you have one of those machines with a horizontal loaf pan that is a little larger, make half again as much. Be sure to have some cream cheese or strawberry jam to use when you toast a slice.

I mixed up a lot of the basic dry ingredients and placed them in a plasticware so that I could pull it out whenever I wanted and just add the wet ingredients and yeast. Be sure your ingredients are at room temperature.

I took this basic recipe and used it to make some pancakes that were so good my whole family raved. I just doubled the sugar and exchanged the yeast for some baking soda and baking powder. MMMM!

I included the signature of the person who had originally posted the recipe. Far be it from me to plagairize!

gluten-free Bread note from Laurie:

I have a Welbilt too; it works great every time. Even though it makes a 1.5 lb loaf, when I make gluten-free bread, I only make a 1 lb loaf. I think the smaller loaf works better because gluten-free breads do not rise like conventional breads. Here is the recipe I use (adapted from another recipe I found on a different website):

2 cups gluten-free flour (I use B. Hagman's - 2 parts brown rice flour, 2/3 part potato starch, 1/3 part tapioca flour)

1/3 cup ground flax seed

3 Tbs Sugar

2 tsp Xanthan gum

1 tsp salt

1.5 tsp yeast

2 Tbs Oil

2 Eggs

1 cup gluten-free buttermilk

This bread turns out great every time. It is great for grilled cheese sandwiches. My daughter loves it.

Oh yes, the potato bread question. My experience baking before going gluten-free was that the mashed potatoes in potato bread were used for consistency purposes more than anything else. I use to make some mean potato bread dinner rolls. I have not tried it with gluten-free flours, but I suspicion that you could take the recipe I shared and use some mashed potatoes to accomplish a similar purpose as the bean flours. Take a chance and experiment a little. What else is life for if not for learning and growing. It might also make an interesting foray into the world of applied physics and chemistry with your kids if you can get them involved.

Thank you so much!

I am planning a trip into town this evening to stock up on my gluten-free supplies and this weekend is booked for baking. I am exited to try your recipe since I have had all flops with my own except for the egg bread recipe.

I just realized I am such a dinger, I never posted the recipe.

If any of you would liek this recipe, please let me know. I found this in a cookbook by Betty Ryberg. This lady is amazing!

I think I stated earlier that she herself has Celiacs and I need to correct myself, she has a close friend who has celiac disease and she began baking and experimenting for this person.

p.s. I will try the potatoes, thank you. I'm Norwegian, can you tell? LOL!

Thank you again,

Sarah :rolleyes:

I'd like the egg recipe! I'm also a mission to find a tasty bread. I've experimented some, but we've only been gluten-free for a month, so I haven't gotten too far. ;)

Hello and forgive me for taking so long to respond :huh:

Once again I should say this is a recipe from the The Gluten Free Kitchen Recipe Book by Roben Ryberg, I'm telling you, that this book really helped especially when I was first diagnosed and lost!! :)

Ok, here it is...

1/4 c. shortening

3 Tbl. honey

2 eggs

1 packet of yeast (1 Tbl.)

1 c. unflavored yogurt

1/2 c. potato starch

1 1/2 c. cornstarch

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tbl. baking powder

2 tsp. xanthan gum

3/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vinegar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, combine all ingredients and mix well to remove all lumps. (The dough looks pretty wet, but it's ok) place dough in greased loaf pan and smooth the top with wet hands. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until it has browned lightly and check with a toothpick to test the doneness.

I have found that when you use a heavy duty bread loaf pan instead of a glass or disp. aluminum pan the results are much better.

Good Luck and let me know what you think. :D

Thanks! We're getting ready to head out of town, but I'll be sure to try this one out when we get home and let you know how it tasted.

Just to clarify...the potato starch is NOT potato starch flour, right? It's the one that I would find in the Kosher section of the grocery store.....right?

You are very welcome ;)

Just use plain potato starch. Most of these recipes in this book call for just cornstarch and potato starch. That is why I felt so at ease with her book. I can find these at my local grocery store and it just made it so convenient.

Take care,

Sarah :D

    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!  
    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? Did my bit of sport last night which was a great relief to be free of any illness-related thoughts for an hour or two; didn't think I'd have the energy at the start but soon got going and was OK so that's a plus I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning...
      http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/50920-sores-on-scalp/ one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
    • First of all, welcome to the forum! it's good to have you here. Secondly, I can really relate to the fatigue portion.  it really hadn't affected me until everything hit the ceiling medically for me.  I was constantly tired all the time, and waking feeling rested in the morning. Prone to depression and anxiety, definitely.  It drove me nuts for those first few weeks.  That's when I decided to try going off the gluten to see what happened.  I still dealt with the depression, anxiety at crazy levels, and inability to focus/concentrate, but it had gotten progressively better.  The anxiety got so bad I would have panic attacks in public areas which only ramped up the anxiety because people saw what was happening.  I would encourage you and your doctor to do a full Celiac panel before you decide to try the gluten free diet.  I had my blood work done after I was off gluten for about two months or so.  Thankfully, my levels were still high to register at least a gluten sensitivity.  Since going off gluten for almost a year now, things have started to finally appear "normal".  Whatever normal means for me now.  As I am healing from the 30 years of glutenizing, I combined both natural methods with the medical methods.  If you are interested in the different avenues of natural methods, I would be willing to share with you.  I will be praying for you as you go through this journey. Let me assure you, you are not alone in this journey.  Depending on family dynamics, they can be a great source of support.  This forum is also a great place to bounce thoughts or concerns off of.  Good luck.
