Perfect Gluten-Free White/sandwich Bread

96 posts in this topic

I just went on A... and the King's Arthur multi purpose flour is there for $9.99 per box.

keep watching A... If that is your only option as they have sales every month or so on gluten-free foods for about 25% off.

When my husband and I went shopping for the KA flour he picked out an artisan bread(gluten one) from the bakery.

I was going to make a pot of vegetable soup and we could both have bread and butter with it.

When my bread came out of the oven it looked beautiful and I was hopeful. I waited for it to cool for a while and placed it in a plastic bag while slightly warm to keep the moisture in.

Once the soup was ready I cut a couple of slices and buttered it. One taste had me hooked! I told my hubby "here..taste this". He said it was better than the artisan bread he had chosen.

To be honest with you..I didn't even want to eat soup with it. I just wanted the bread! :D

I'm thinking I'll slice up the rest of it and keep some out for eating now and freeze a couple of slices?

I purchased the King Arthur Gluten free multigrain bread mix directly from the company,and hope to try it within the next few weeks. It's still too hot where I live to bake (yes, I could turn the A/C on) but the main reason is I have little room left in the freezer. All my KA food items have turned out fantastic.

I have a quick question for anyone who might be on here right now... would it be bad if I left and let this rise for a couple of hours? I'm not a big bread maker, so I don't really know, but do know I have to leave and won't be back for that long. Thanks

I don't know how the results would be, but you can put it into the fridge. It will slows down the process.

I think someone who accidentally let it rise too long had it spill over the sides of the pan....because gluten-free bread dough is more like a "batter" than a "dough" it can't hold itself up while it's still raw. So, yes, I think there is an upper limit on how long you can let it rise....and it's probably not more than a hour/hour and a half? But it probably also depends on whether you are using regular or quick rise yeast....that would affect the timing, too.

You probably already did this but just in case, I wanted to respond. I was the one that let my bread rise for an hour. gluten-free breads are not the same as gluten breads where you can just let them rise a little longer and no harm done. gluten-free breads often will collapse once you pull them out of the oven if they rose too high during the rise time. I had this happen to my loaf and I was just using plain yeast not rapid rise or anything. It would be better ot make this bread when you are going to be home to keep an eye on it. My bread was still really good but the loaf was shorter and more compact than a "normal" loaf due to the over-rise and collapsing.

Thank you for posting this!!! I can't wait to try it!! I'm SO EXCITED!! To actually be able to have a SANDWICH?! I'm beside myself at the mere thought. And, I have a coupon for Whole Foods. Looks like I'll be buying some King Arthur!

As I'm writing this, I'm eating the last slice of this sandwich bread with earth balance margarine and 3 slices of Hormel hard salami from the second loaf that I have baked this week. Yummmmmmmy!

It's really good.

I wondered how others store this bread. I ate some while it was still warm, but saved the rest until the next day. Then I sliced it up and put it in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. Once I thawed a couple of slices it wasn't as yummy. Will still be good for grilled cheese or french toast though. I just wondered if there's a better way of keeping it?

I have really enjoyed reading this thread as well as the one about Challah by Simona. Out of respect for all those who have gone before in the bread baking saga of gluten free baking I wanted to post this link.

I think your recipe must belong at the end of this thread in light of the reviews it is getting. The Challah by Simona rates up there too from the reviews I've read.

I've never baked a loaf of gluten free bread. It wasn't worth it to me after reading the reverse engineering thread when I first got on here a year ago. I was exhausted and frustrated by the prospect of bread. :blink: But the pictures of your loaf and Simona's are very enticing. I think there might be some bread baking in this house this winter! :o;)

Thank you both.

I put it in a plastic bag and left it out overnight the first night and made sandwiches with it the next day. Then put it in the fridge. It is still good right now on day 2 in fridge. Better than most things.

Has anyone adapted this recipe to a bread machine? I'm new to gluten free and to bread machines, and can use all the advice you have.

Mine didn't last for more than two days (we ate it all the second day, lol) but I put it in a ziploc bag and just left in on the counter.

Hi Cougie! King Arthur gluten-free flour is sold in the US. They also will ship to Canada on their website. I find it in Kroger in my stores in Virginia. If you read through the entire thread I think some others gave the names of their stores where they find it. My Kroger stores stock it in the middle of the gluten flours in the baking section (it's a little box) which is really strange because my Kroger actually has a gluten-free section but they don't put the KA gluten-free flour there. :huh: I hope you can fidn it to try to make this bread. :)

I tried to make this bread with KA flour twice- delicious!! But I don't want to pay $10,69 per 1 little box of flour mix. Anyway I bought the last box in stores around me.

Yesterday I made this. I copy the recipe little and mixed some flours and the result is wow. Almost perfect, or maybe the same.

I do apologize to MerrillC1977.

She is the one who made the first good sandwich bread. Sorry.

*Make your own blend

Many of our gluten-free recipes use our King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour, which includes ingredients that reduce the grittiness sometimes found in gluten-free baked goods. Our flour also increases the shelf life of your treats, keeping them fresh longer.

The following make-at-home blend, featuring stabilized brown rice flour, works pretty well when substituted; and it tastes better than a blend using regular brown rice flour. (Ed. - you can still use regular brown rice flour)

Whisk together 6 cups (32 ounces) King Arthur stabilized brown rice flour; 2 cups (10 3/4 ounces) potato starch; and 1 cup (4 ounces) tapioca flour or tapioca starch. Store airtight at room temperature. Note: You can substitute white rice flour for the brown rice flour if you like; it'll make your baked goods grittier (unless you manage to find a finely ground version)."

Going to try this today after I go next door to get some potato starch :P

I'm in Norfolk, VA. I have found it at more than one Kroger store in this area as well as in Virginia Beach. If your Kroger carries other gluten-free products you may be able to get them to start carrying this flour too. Also you can order fromt he KA website (although that's more expensive with shipping costs)--they do ship to anywhere in the US and Canada.

I'll be looking forward to your update when you try it Mushroom! I think it would be cheaper for me to buy all the individual flours than to buy KA gluten-free flour.

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms.
