...and subbed a 1/4 cup coconut flour for 1/2 c KA flour (coconut flour swells to almost dbl it's size...

Ooh, I am excited to try it with some coconut flour now. :) Thanks for the tip!!!

The Bob's Red Mill page re: coconut flour says: "You can replace up to 20% of the flour called for in a recipe with Coconut Flour, adding an equivalent amount of additional liquid to the recipe."

Did you add any extra liquid to the recipe?

I'm making this right now! It's rising in my warm oven. :D

Just some notes for those that asked about not having a stand mixer: I started out mixing it by hand and then when I realized it was not a very hard dough but more of a thick batter I used my little hand mixer (a cheapy one bought on a black friday deal, LOL) to mix it up more thouroughly. This dough/battr is almost identical in thickness/texture to the King Arthur's gluten-free pizza recipe on their blog. So if you have made that pizza crust with your hand mixer (I have) you can do the same with this bread dough and not worry about it burning up the mixer. It really needs a mixer however to get it smooth. Mixing by hand for several minutes I still had lumps of flour in the batter. The KA blog for the pizza crust recipe says that you need a mixer and it won't work by hand mixing. I tend to think this would be the same for this bread recipe. So if you don't have a mixer you may want to at least get a cheap one for this recipe.

OP you did not say how long to let it rise but I'm assuming about an hour? I set a time for a hour for the rise. I'll get back to y'all after I bake it :)

Just checked on my bread and in only 40 minutes it rose OVER the edge of the pan and was oozing onto my oven floor. Fortunately I caught it before there was too big of a mess. I transfered the loaf pan toa cookie sheet and moved my oven racks around so it won't hit the upper racks or the top of the oven if it rises too high during baking. I have high hopes for this loaf now. :lol:

I'm just waiting for my oven to preheat and then into the fun begins! :)

Well it's in the oven! I should note that I used a 2.5 by 8.5 inch glass pyrex loaf pan. I had greased th epan with palm shortening. The batter was about an inch below the lip when I poured it into the pan so I thought it was big enough but next time I will either make two shorter loaves or use a bigger pan.

I didn't add extra liquid only because it was 1/4 cup , actually it was a little less than that because I addded a tbs of flax meal to make it 1/4 c. It seemed fine without more liquid.

I let it rise until it was an inch or two shorter than I wanted the finished loaf to turn out (it rises another inch or two while actually baking). I didn't watch the clock, but it was maybe 30 minutes? I like to let mine rise until it's above the top of the pan at least.

I let mine rise way too long then! It ended up spilling over the sides more while int eh oven. I just took it out of the oven and it sank in the middle a little. It smells wonderful however! I had to cut the top spilled part off to get it out of the pan. So I cut into it while still warm and put some Earth Balance on it. I probably should have waited longer for it to cool. It sank a little more when I cut into it.

Mines not a pretty loaf like the one in the picture but I have to report this is the BEST gluten-free white bread I have made. If you loved soft, wonderbread type white bread this is the bread for you. It's very soft, at least right out of the oven. It's been almost 2 year since I've had regualr bread but this tastes very similar to what I remember. I'll be makign this again for sure. I just need to buy a bigger loaf pan and not let it rise so much.

Thank you for sharing Merrill!

All this week I have been sick. I have upper respiratory infection. My asthma is bad too. In the morning I didnt felt good, but I checked all replies as they were arriving in my mail-box.

From 5 PM I was running all over my town because I decided that I want to make this bread too. Finally I found it in Kings. I paid for it $10.69. I was staring on it for wail. I didnt want to get it, but I sad it to myself- What the hell, I will try it.

Its 6:30 PM. Finally Im home.

Question: What type of attachment did you use for this bread?

Simona, I hope you feel better soon. We are fighting colds here in our house too. It was nice to have this bread to eat and not have to worry about cooking. I made a sandwich for my husband last night and he said to me, "Are you sure this is gluten-free bread?" Today there is only a couple pieces left, but it is still soft just like Merrill said it would be. This a very easy recipe and whatever attachment you use will probably be fine. I just would not use a whisk attachment. I used plain beaters on my hand mixer. It will be like a thick batter, not a formable dough like your challah recipe.

I just put my bread into a pan and now I'm waiting for it to rise. The dough is sticky.

I used only two cups of King's Arthur flour and another 1/2 cup I made myself - 2 Tbsp. of white rice flour, 2 Tbsp. of brown rice flour, 2 Tbsp. of potato starch and 2 Tbsp. of Tapioca starch. All these ingredients were in King's Arthur flour mix and I added equal parts from all of them.

This bread looks to me like the Udi's bread. It's very expensive -for me. I can buy the Udi's bread fresh for $4.99. It's small, but fresh and pretty cheep. I bought just King's Arthur flour for $10.69 and I can even make two loafs from it. If I will count all additional ingredients, then this bread will cost much more.

I hope that I will make the perfect loaf like you have in your picture. We will see. I need another half hour until it will be ready for an oven.

Depending on where you live, Amazon has this product for 6.74 a box and is eligible for free shipping. I just paid 8.99 and was thinking the same thing about it not being cheaper to make it. That was my original goal, was to make eating gluten free bread cheaper.

$10.69 is ridiculous!!!! That's insane I wouldn't buy it either . I would definitely buy fresh and already made for $4.99 instead.

Maybe you can shop around, I can buy KA fLour at a store 10 miles from me for $4.99 so it's worth it to me but not you.

BTW are you in Colorado, they seem to have all the bakeries with fresh Udi's :)

Here is my bread - how I pulled out from oven.

2i0dvee.jpg

I just slice it and it's very, very soft. It's also very fluffy. Just like you sad looks like the Wonder bread. Nice.

It's a great bread recipe.

I know that on Amazon you can get cheeper things, but I didn't want to wait for it.

I'm in New Jersey close to Westfield where I can get it for $4.99 in Trade's Joe and few miles further I can get all their products fresh in Whole foods for $4.99-$5.66 - cinnamon bagels, bread, white, multi-grain bread, hamburger buns,and rolls. I'm lucky.

I have this bread dough rising right now. It's just even with the sides of the pan, so a bit more to go. This is my first time making bread ever! :D

I got the KA flour (240z) at Meijer's grocery store for $5.99. There was enough flour to make the loaf plus some left over. I didn't measure, but it looks like maybe there's at least 1cup or so left?

I didn't care for Udi's. Maybe it's because I haven't eaten white bread since 2005? We switched to whole wheat, or seven grain, etc. back then.

I'm anxious to put this in the oven.

I made this yesterday and just had a piece of it with dinner.

It's great!

Very similar to the Land O'Lakes bread (minus the butter.)

Mine did also sink some in the middle and the cooking time was about 15 min less than what was listed as the minimum, but overall it turned out well!

I kept mine for 60 minutes on 375F. It sink very little. My husband also liked this bread very much. He told me: "This is the bread that I have been waiting for".

Everybody had 2 slices of bread with salami and cheese for dinner. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I will cook dinner little later because right now nobody is hungry.

Oh my goodness where are you buying your flour??? I get a box at my local supermarket (Market Basket in the New England area) for only $3.99, making this homemade bread WAY cheaper than what I'd pay for that miniscule loaf of Udi's at the same store. :(

Yay - can't wait to make it. I guess I do have a question to the poster of the recipe - have you ever added anything to make it more healthy, such as flax meal or almond meal or anything like that? And if so, how would you sub things in? Sometimes I get so excited when I find a bread that even remotely works, but then I realize there isn't much nutrition and am never sure how to add it without ruining stuff.

I have not yet. Sorry. But I see no reason why nuts, seeds, spices, etc. can't be added.

    • I doubt it. I would think that would be a questions for the company that make them.    But if smoking makes you feel bad....and you are able to quit for several weeks at a time....why go back to it?
    • Hi. I've noticed that after a break of smoking (2-3 weeks) I feel bad, when I begin to smoke again.  Maybe they contain some additives with gluten??
    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer
