Omg... I Just Created Real French Bread Rolls!
0

12 posts in this topic

Ok guys, bear with me because this is a recipe in progress... I just made the most delicious french bread mini-rolls. They actually taste and feel like REAL french bread!!! The outside is crispy, but not hard and the inside is soft but not too dense. They are amazing! I didn't measure the milk, but everything else is right...

1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

1 pkt active dry rapid rise yeast

1 or 2 tablespoons white sugar (depending on your tastes)

2 tablespoons canola oil

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups white rice flour

1 cup potato starch

1 cup tapioca starch

4 tsp xantham gum

1 pkt Knox unflavored gelatin

milk (?) (or milk alternative)

1. Mix water, yeast, and sugar and let sit for approx 8 minutes

2. While waiting mix gelatin, flours, and xantham gum in stand mixer

3. Add oil and salt to yeast mixture

4. Combine all ingredients

5. Add milk until mixture gets sticky (maybe 1/4 cup-ish???) and let it sit for 10 mins.

6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

7. Scoop dough into a greased mini-muffin pan

8. optional: brush tops with egg for color

9. Cook until tops and bottoms are golden brown (approximately 10 minutes???)

The dough should be thicker than pancake batter, but thinner than traditional gluten french bread dough. I also added 2 Tbsp minced garlic, 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, and 1 Tbsp mined onion, but I tend to add garlic and onion to everything I make. I tried it without and it was still really, really, really good. This recipe would probably be good with less milk made like soft pretzels. Mmmmm....

Hi Angie

it sounds like you have a winner of a recipe for your family! Can you give an estimate on the milk for the newbies on here? I'm sure many will not know how much to dump into the mix!

thanks

I believe it was approx. 1/4 cup, certainly no more than that. It may have been closer to an 1/8 cup. I really just started dumping slowly until the texture looked right.

I have a feeling you could leave out the gelatin without adversely affecting results. You could halve the recipe and try it with pectin to see what happens.

I have to do dairy free, what would you suggest. I don't really like the after taste of rice milk but I don't know if that would make a difference in the milk. I use mostly soy and almond for cooking and baking.

I believe agar agar would be a better substitute for gelatin than pectin, especially most types of pectin, as they don't gel without a lot of sugar.

I'd think almond milk should work fine. Cow's milk is essentially an emulsion of fat, protein and water, so anything like that may have some potential. Coconut milk might work too.

I made some for my daughter with soy milk and they turned out well, just slightly sweeter because the soy milk is sweetened. I imagine almond milk would probably be better though.

It is the white chocolate mousse cake that my husband got for me for Valentine's day at a semi-local gluten-free bakery. It was amazing!

These were absolutely delicious! I have been trying recipe after recipe to try to find something close to the crispy bread that I miss. These were fantastic. Thanks for the recipe! Do you think they would also work with brown rice flour?

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
