Are there any? I bought some bob's red mill gluten free bread mix and made it today. It was really 'meeh', disapointing, blah? I guess I was half expecting it to taste like home made 'real' bread. But the thought of getting flour all over the kitchen making traditional bread freaked me out because my daughter might get into it. First thing I really noticed was the smell of the dough. I LOVE bread dough smell. This was not it. It smelled great after it was done but had a weird, spongy, firm, memory foam texture. Is that normal or did I do it wrong? I am going to make sandwiches and if that doesn't taste good I am making stuffing out of it.

hi, I would suggest either making your own(lots of work, trial and error), or THE GLUTEN FREE PANTRY(brand) "my favorite sandwich bread" is great!! Easy to make, I mix it up in a kitchen aid blender, put it in a bread tin (I line them with parchment paper), let it rise in fairly warm oven for about 45 min, (It should crest top of bread tin), then bake for 30 min. Can't beat it. Slice it and freeze it unless you eat alot of bread. Otherwise, after 3 to 4 days it will go crumbly
I have been doing this for our teenage son for three years and have tried many many products. This bread is the best. Another good brand is SKAR(spelling?). It is available at walmart. Easy to make, but we didn't like it as well. It looks as white as regular white bread, but doesn't taste as good as GlutenFreePantry brand. walmart also has vacumn packed hamburger buns which are made by that same company skar. Until you open them, they can just sit on your shelf, no refridge necessary. They are wonderful. We've had a hard time with a teenage son and no burger buns. these are wonderful.
Good luck.

I'm a huge fan of Pamela's wheat free bread mix. I buy it in bulk/by the case from that company w/ the name of the long river in So. America (sometimes sites won't let you say the name)and when I combine it w/ my order of Tinyada pasta... shipping is FREE.

It makes delicious bread and I often make rolls rather than a loaf. I've also done the bagel "variation" and that was delicious too.

Before Pam's, I used Manna from Anna bread mix and that was good too, but there were too many ingredients to add to the mix. Pam's only requires oil, eggs, and water.

I love the Gluten Free Pantry bread mixes--French and Sandwich. I don't use a breadmaker--just mix them up in my Kitchenaid and bake in the oven.

Another vote for gluten-free Pantry - definitely the best I have tried.
