Bulk Bread Mix That Works Well In A Zojirushi
0

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 www.foodphilosopher.com.

You can also try www.betterbatter.org, 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.

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
