High Altitude Keep It Simple Stupid Bread Recipe
0

6 posts in this topic

I'd like to share a recipe I developed through trial and error. I didn't want to mix several types of flour to make bread, and I wanted to keep the number of ingredients to a minimum so I would be happy to make several loaves a week (and I do make at least three loaves a week for my growing family and myself!). I call it K.I.S.S. bread.

It works great at 6,500 ft where I live, the bread is delicious, and makes fabulous toast and french toast, pizza dough, rolls, etc...

Put into bread maker, in this order:

2 eggs

2 3/4 cups warm milk

start the paddle going to mix this up. While the paddle is going add the remaining ingredients, in the order listed:

2 cups non-fat dry milk

1 whole bag Bob's Red Mill Brown Rice flour (it has to be Bob's, the others are gritty)

2 tsp salt

2 1/2 tsp xanthan gum

2 tsp dry yeast

It takes about 7 minutes for me to add these ingredients to the bread machine. Sometimes I stop the machine and scoop out some dough to make pizza or rolls. The dough is the consistency of cake batter, it pours, it doesn't kneed.

Good luck! :)

I'm at altitude but don't have a bread maker. Do you think I can do it with the same ingredients or would I need to change it up? I'm in need of an edible gluten-free bread in a bad, bad way!

I see someone else asked the same question, but got no reply. I also am interested in this high-altitude version, but do not have a bread machine.

Does anyone have experience with a good sandwich-type bread (preferable a brown bread) at high altitude?

Thanks!

Though I'm not at a high elevation, I've never needed a bread machine to make what IMO is a decent brown bread. I also mix the dough by hand, not a mixer. From what I've read, some simple adjustments should yield good results when taking a recipe to a high altitude. This page has some good tips: http://www.ochef.com/327.htm

My latest bread recipe can be found here. There I give a method to experiment with a small amount of dough, so you won't have to worry about having a full loaf turn out unsatisfactorily. Feel free to ask questions there, as I am very interested in making sure it works for you (I'm writing a gluten-free baking book).

RiceGuy,

Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

I saw your post and the detail of your recipe, but you could be more specific for the psyllium husk--do you use the psyllium seed husks as is, or do you grind them into a powder/flour?

And I assume you are using one package of yeast dissolved in warm water? I didn't see any mention of yeast added to your recipe.

I see the flour mixture, the psyllium husk and the guar gum, just wondering if there is anything else.

How long do you let it rise and then bake on what temp?

Thanks!

I do answer all these questions and more in that thread. I think it should be well-worth your time to read.

I specify ground psyllium husk, which is how it comes when I purchase it. I do not use an entire packet of yeast for one loaf. Rather, approximately 1/2 rounded teaspoon per cup of flour.

The temps for rising and baking are also given in that thread, as is the volume and temp of the warm water. It is important to understand that the length of time to let it rise should never be by the clock, but according to how much the dough rises. The ratio of flour to water is also very important, and may need to be adjusted for your altitude. But based on experience, and what I've read about high altitude baking, I wonder if the rise time may be the more significant factor.

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
