...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.

    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
    • Hey guys, the last year and a month of transitioning to totally gluten free was hard, but I now seem to be healthy. The first six months I got horrible cramps that would suddenly come and hit hard, but I really havent seen any of those since about February-March. One thing that I wouldnt say has gotten better is my psyche. I was always sort of an anxious person (hard not to be when you dont feel well yet you have "IBS" and you're just "nervous", which all of you probably know), but I am borderline hermit now. I finally went to the doctor today and was prescribed prozac, so hopefully that helps, but I was just wondering about you guys? Thanks
