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?

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • 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!
