Bulk Bread Mix That Works Well In A Zojirushi

3 posts in this topic

So Udi's bread in my new area costs almost $7 a loaf (compared to $3.50 before) and I'm thinking about pulling out my Zojirushi because we eat 3-4 loafs a week and it is really adding up. Does anyone have suggestions for bulk mixes (or economical recipes) that work well in a Zojirushi bread machine? I've notice my Zojirushi behaves differently than my old Breadman - my Breadman did a great job with Bette Hagman's recipes but not so much with the Zojirushi.

I don't care for Pamela's and all of the single serve box mixes around here cost as much as a loaf of Udi's...I'd like to a bulk mix or recipe for sliced bread that is easy and tasty for $3-4 per loaf that is mostly rice or potato based. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Annalise Roberts has a cookbook of recipes specifically for the Zojirushi bread machine:

Gluten-Free Baking Classics For The Bread Machine.

You can probably find a used one on-line.

Many of her recipes also appear on

You can also try, which has a ton of very good recipes, and they sell a very nice gluten-free flour mix that is less expensive than most, especially if you buy it in bulk (they will ship it to you in 5-pound boxes, which is very manageable, and they're easy to store).

I go back and forth between the betterbatter recipes and Annalise Roberts' recipes (sometimes I just use the betterbatter flour in the Annalise Roberts recipe!).

Really, the only thing the bread mixes add is salt,sugar and a yeast packet. That's very few ingredients, and not a lot of extra convenience for the high price of a specialty mix.

You can also save a lot of $ if you buy yeast in bulk, from Costco or Sam's Club, and just measure it out with a teaspoon. Those little packets literally triple or quadruple the price.

I didn't realize she had a cookbook for the Zojirushi - I'll check it out. I am rather busy these days and don't have access to a lot of gluten-free flours (I'm pretty remote and it's a trip to get them) so I am looking for something quasi pre-made - I didn't think about something with betterbatter. I have used it for several years and really like it.

    • I have not taken him to a dermatologist. I have dapsone, which I put on the rash, it always clears up. I have it for another family member. But then I started reading about celiac and all these dots are out there but not connected.  The next time he has the bumps, I am going to take him in. In the mean time, I am trying to find a dermatologist who understands the condition. I don't want my kid to have celiac. And I kinda feel crazy for thinking he may have a gluten issue but with it in my family and him having these other things, I want to be dilligent.   i will read up on the test you suggested. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond everyone.   
    • I tested positive to deamidated gliadin in August at a hospital. My old GI tested me using gliadin (the test listed on your result) in September and it was negative. Literally the next day, my new GI tested for deamidated gliadin again and it was positive (I was unaware the hospital scheduled an appointment with the new GI for follow up).  If you still suspect it, Google deamidated gliadin, print out the Mayo clinic lab info and circle the part where it says they have discontinued the use of gliadin in favor of the deamidated gliadin.  Has he seen a dermatologist?
    • He has a rash on his fingers from time to time. Angular Chetelis. Mouth sores. So skinny. Anxious. 
    • The blood test results are negative (and he had the complete panel).  No GI issues (per your posting).  What makes you suspect celiac disease?  
    • Hi WS, So sorry to hear your not feeling quite right just yet. I can relate! I believe in doing whatever is needed for you to be able to come to terms with the diagnosis, which it sounds like was given to you already but if you still need further evidence then do whatever is needed!  In regards to food, I am a pescatarian so I also don't eat meat but I get my protein from some seafood, eggs, beans, natural protein replacements, exct...I was vegetarian and found it extremely difficult on the gluten-free diet for my lifestyle. I found probiotics have really helped me but even now I still feel off days with my digestion and I think that just comes with having a digestive disease. I know what foods trigger it (Yes gluten-free foods!) and try to stay away. I remember the first month or so I was very sick from removing gluten, almost like withdrawal symptoms. Probably because I ate a lot of it prior so it was a shock. 3 1/2 years later, I still feel weak and light headed if I don't eat enough carbs/protein. Celiacs are known to have deficiencies already so your nutrition intake/supplements are super important! I hope your able to find peace with your health and get the answers your looking for!
