Help Needed In Baking Breads
0

22 posts in this topic

I've only been gluten-free for a few months and I just cannot bring myself to spend $5 or more for hamburger and hot dog buns especially when they come in a pack of four. My family used to eat Italian bread with dinner on a regular basis. Now that I am gluten-free, we rarely have bread with dinner. The only bread I can make that is edible is a corn bread! So far I have bought the frozen gluten-free bread from the grocery store, but it is not that great and I dread eating it. So I am trying to figure out how to make a good tasting Italian bread, hamburger buns, and hot dog buns. Summer is coming and it will be time for hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill very soon :rolleyes:

1. Does anyone know where you buy the baking pans for Italian style bread, Hamburger buns, & Hot dog buns?

2. Does anyone have any tried and true recipes for baking these breads? I do not have a bread machine. I have tried a few recipes, but they have not come out that well.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

for my sons hamburger buns I use muffin rings (purchased at a kitchen shop), they work great. To make the buns I usually use the Tapioca rice bread mix from Kinnickinick.com our Save on Foods carrys it in the store. They taste great and are soft and freeze well.

The Bette Hagman, Featherlight mix also seams to be the best I have found for a scratch mix, but keep in mind I am new to all of this as well.

Also, Bette hagmans book, gluten free gourmet bakes bread has alot of recipies for wonderful breads like french bread. I borrowed one from the library. You can probably find the recipie for the featherlight mix here or on the old web page, if not ler me know and I will dig around for it and post it.

Jacque,

Would you care to share your cornbread recipe? I'm still searching for good recipes of nearly any sort.

I'd love it if you'd be willing to share.

The original recipe can be found on the Arrow Head Mills Yellow Corn Meal bag. I modified the recipe to fit my tastes and desire for a fast simple bread. My family likes it hot out of the oven or toasted with butter.

Mexican Corn Bread

Ingredients

1 c onion finely chopped

1 c mexican corn (from the can)

1 c white flour (I use rice flour)

1 c Yellow Corn Meal

1 T baking Powder

I just bought Lyn Rae Ries's new book Delicious Breads. I have been trying to bake a decent loaf of bread for two years and they all end up in the trash. Even Bette Hagmans. I made two loaves of bread so far from this new book and I loved them both. I made the basic sandwich bread and the Onion Cheese Loaf. They were soooo good!! They do take a lot of different ingredients such as quinoa flour, yogurt..etc, but it is worth the trip to the store with a long list. My Mom tried a bite of the onion cheese bread and she said it tasted like an expensive specialty bread from New York. I highly recommend the book. (for the quinoa flour I just ground quinoa flakes in my coffee grinder. I do a box at a time and store it in the freezer along with all my other flours) The sandwich bread didn't fall apart or have a nasty aftertaste and it wasn't gritty! I'm a happy bread eater once more :)

I have found a bread mix from the Gluten-Free Pantry called "Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix" that makes a very good bread in my breadmaker. I've been using it for the past 5 yrs and have had great results. I have found that heating the slices of bread up before using, in a toaster or skillet, helps with the dry texture some gluten free breads have when they're cold. Makes great grilled ham and cheese sandwiches or use as a substitute for hamburger buns sliced a little thicker.

Baking Gluten free breads requires patience, experimentation, and perseverance.

I use many of Bette Hagman's recipes; I modify some, I derived my own biscuit recipe.

I found adding baked sweet potatoes to the mix improved texture and taste for some breads.

Don't give up. I have been doing this for a couple of years now and people who eat regular breads find my gluten free breads to be delicious.

I will share my biscuit recipe if asked. I bake two batches at a time. We freeze them as soon as they are cool; pop 'em in the microwave for 30 or 40 seconds anytime we want one.

My wife has Celiac Sprue, I do not; I try to share her meals as often as possible.

You can learn to bake excellent breads if you stick with it...

Can anyone help with my bread problem. When I uses the Featherlight mix, the bread is great. I slice it and freeze it, but by the next day it is already drying and starting to crumble. Any ideas?

HS Wade,

Could you please share your biscuit recipe? I have not had biscuits in a long time!

I am trying to make breads and some are edible and some become bread crumbs. I'll keep trying.

Laurie anne,

Unfortunately, spelt is NOT gluten-free. It is the "ancient" form of wheat that farmers originally domesticated, so while it does not have as much gluten as its hybridized counterpart today, it definitely does contain gluten and must be avoided. The same is true for kamut, another "ancient" wheat-like grain. :(

Here is my favorite recipe from Lynn Rae's book so far. It has a flavor to it but if you want it plain I'm sure just omitting the onion flakes would be fine.

Cheddar and Onion Bread

3/4 c. eggs ( 4 lg. eggs minus 1 yolk)

1 cup bottled water

1 tsp. cider vinegar

2 T. veg. oil

2 T. honey

Place above ingred. in bread maker.

Add:

1 cup brown rice flour

1/2 c tapioca starch flour

1/2. cornstarch

3/4 cup quinoa flour (the first time I made this bread I couldn't find the flour so I ground up quinoa flakes in my coffee grinder,I have since found the flour.)

1/4 cup sweet rice flour

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup dry milk powder

2 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp instant onion flakes ( it called for two but I like just one)

2 1/2 tsp yeast

Add in 1 cup grated sharp cheese.

Set your machine for 1 1/2 lb loaf.

When finished baking cool on a wire rack until cool. I wait a full hour. Then I slice and eat what I want. The remaining bread I slice and freeze. I put waxed paper between the slices. Then I wrap the pile in a piece of foil and then put in a freezer baggie.

I hope you like it as much as I did!!

Jenni,

Is there a recipe for plain, white bread? Don't think my grandson would enjoy cheese bread. Can leave out the onion flakes, but wonder if the omission of cheese wouldn't affect the bread. Ries' book is not available in our library and don't want to order it unless we can use the recipes. Also, what kind of bread machine to you have? I've been afraid to buy one since so many have said they didn't have good luck with them. Would appreciate your help. Jo Ann (bobjo.3@juno.com)

Joann - try my recipe for challah bread (under Kosher and gluten-free, in this same recipe forum). The bread is very soft and good for sandwiches - it's not too hard to make and very good (if I can brag a little!) Also it is dairy free! by the way - I don't use a bread machine...just the old fashioned way. Sara

Hello, everyone. This is my first time on the site, but for sure I'll be a regular visitor from now on. My husband was diagnosed about a month ago and I have tried a number of breads (home made). The best so far was the sourdough in Bette Hagman's cookbook. My problem is that all the breads I've baked seem to rise okay, but when I take them out of the oven they fall in the middle. When I slice the bread it looks like there is a big "v" in the top of the slice. I figure I'm doing something wrong in the "rising" stage, but don't know what it is. Can anyone help? Oh, and those of you who make rolls........which bread recipes are best, and do you just drop large dollops of batter on a baking sheet? I probably need a recipe specifically for rolls, is that right? Thanks a million. :)

    • Celiac - Not yet diagnosed but feel like I'm dying.
      Hi Dylan I just wanted to join SLLRunner in welcoming you to the forum and yes, do ask to be tested for Celiac and Chrons. My nutritionalist told me that celiac disease is a great mimicker of many illnesses which I think must make a doctor's job all the harder when it comes to diagnosis.  For many of us it took us  a long time to get a diagnosis - for about eight years before my own diagnosis I had ulcers,  odd migraines and hallucinations on waking, anxiety, elevated blood protein but no obvious cause for it, anemia, numb hands and arms in the mornings, and eventually the abdominal pain and severe diarrhea. It was all scary stuff but  it was only when I got the last two symptoms, for six weeks, that I was tested for celiac disease (for the protocol here in the UK is that if you have a new gastric symptom for more than six weeks you should have further investigations).  I still wonder if I hadn't had that gastric pain and diarrhea whether my doctors would have even thought it was celiac related? After all you have been through it is not surprising that you are feeling depressed.  A lot of people feel very depressed and anxious before their diagnosis.  You are doing the right thing seeing a new doctor, and hopefully you are just around the corner from getting some long awaited answers.   Keep us posted.  You will find  some great advice here and support during your journey.  All the very best.

      This forum post came up when I Google searched Kirkland Dish Soap. I called them today and they said there is no gluten in the dish soap. Janis 
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not..

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
