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. :)

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
