Does anyone have a good sandwich type bread recipe (not a sweet bread like banana or pumpkin) that doesn't use yeast? I'm a little intimidated by the whole yeast thing!

How about starting with a gluten-free bread mix to get a feel for it? It might be easier for you. Gluten Free Pantry has a sandwich bread that's not bad and King Arthur Flour has a bread mix, too.

Edit: I know there are others, too, like Bob's Red Mill but some people don't care for the bean flour in it.

Here's one I just found, it's for a flat bread. I was actually looking for one that's very similar on the same website that I'd found a little while back, but this one has similar proportions. The other one I found used 1 cup of rice flour (I use a combo of brown and white rice flour), and 1/2 cup corn (or other) starch. In place of baking powder, I used 1/2 t baking soda and 2 t rice vinegar as I'm avoiding baking powder. It worked fine!

As for a loaf pan bread without yeast, I haven't gotten there yet, but this flat bread is pretty good!

I just thought of another recipe for Yeast-Free Sandwich Bread by Jules Shepard. I've never tried it but it sounds good although it does contain several ingredients you may or may not have. Is this what you might have had in mind?

It is - I'm thinking something that relies on baking soda or powder for the "lift" rather than yeast. I don't know why I'm so chicken about the whole yeast thing ... I think part of it is b/c gluten free ingredients are so expensive I worry more about cooking disasters.

That particular recipe contains both baking powder and baking soda...along with a bunch of ingredients you may or may not want to buy especially not knowing if you'll really like the bread.

Do you have a stand mixer? I don't think I could bake gluten-free yeast bread without mine. Really, yeast is nothing to be feared (spoken by someone who's baked a few bricks) laugh.gif I still think your best bet is to buy a mix as it includes all the flours/starches and packet of yeast). The Gluten-Free Pantry sandwich bread mix, for example, isn't expensive compared to buying a bunch of flours and starches.

Lisa Lundy has roll recipes in her book that call for baking powder instead of yeast. There is one that we really like. I just looked and I didn't see any loaf recipes however. The book has a really long title -- The Super Allergy Girl Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Nut-Free Allergy & Celiac Cookbook From a Mother Who Knows. She has some different recipes because of all the restrictions she cooks with, but the ones I have tried work and taste good.

Does anyone have a good sandwich type bread recipe (not a sweet bread like banana or pumpkin) that doesn't use yeast? I'm a little intimidated by the whole yeast thing!

The only baking powder I know of which can provide enough rise in gluten-free bread is one based on Sodium Acid pyrophosphate. One such baking powder is the one from Bob's Red Mill. This type waits for the dough to get hot in the oven, so it won't fizzle out on you like the typical kind. Rumford's will essentially use up all it's fizz in the mixing bowl, so you won't get a full rise in the oven.

However, as was stated in an earlier post, there's no need to feel intimidated by yeast. And all the regular brands of baking yeast I've seen are gluten-free anyway, so you do not need to buy something special or expensive. Truly, this would yield a bread more like the sandwich type you're looking for, than any bread leavened with baking powder I know of. Both in flavor and texture.

Incidentally, if you're uneasy about baking bread altogether, I suppose you could try pancakes as a sandwich bread. Just don't make them sweet, or cinnamon flavored, etc. You won't need to add any milk, fat or oil either. No xanthan required, although a tiny bit may work. The amount of xanthan called for in most breads would get you a very gooey mess! Essentially just flour, baking powder, and water is all you'd need (ok, probably some salt too). I suppose you could even add some yeast to make the flavor more like sandwich bread too. Also, some flours which wouldn't ordinarily make a good pancake because it'd turn out to tough, would actually make a good "sandwich pancake", as it would hold together better. Not sure if egg would help, but since I don't use egg in pancakes (or anything else), I know it'd work without that too. If the shape is important to you, perhaps a rectangular (or other) "egg ring" would constrain the batter to the shape you desire. This certainly wouldn't have the structure of a yeast-risen bread, but it would be relatively quick and easy.

    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure how much fat I'm having, I will check. That could be contributing. Yup I do know about the link between Type 1 and celiac. But when it was first discovered my blood sugar was high, my insulin was tested and it was high...actually it was double the normal amount. C-peptide was tested too and I don't remember exactly but I think it was slightly high? If I had Type 1 or LADA, wouldn't my insulin be lower? It is strange though how I have none of the risk factors for insulin resistance and/or type 2... And in fact I had been on a super healthy whole food, "anti-candida" diet for several years before my blood sugar suddenly went really wacko!

      I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      Is there anyone else "pre-celiac" and asymptomatic like me who has had long-term success without losing their mind and still enjoying eating out without feeling like you have to stay in a plastic bubble?  This site has been helpful to me these past months.   I don't have it "Yet" and I am scared.  Sorry this is long but I wanted to be thorough: Two years ago I started experiencing GERD (heart burn, pain under my left rib cage, and regurgitation).  After trying probiotics, kambucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar, aloe juice, eliminating chocolate, citrus, tomatoes, spices, cinnamon, mint, alcohol, not eating 3 hours before bed, I was no better. I got an endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The dr found gastritis and esophagitis.  No hernia, infection or ulcer.  He started me on PPI.  I got 99% relief.  After 6 months I decided to go off PPI.  After suffering for 3 months, I went back to dr and back on PPIs for a year.  Because I am young, 39, and the PPIs have side effects, he discussed surgery with me. I went to a specialist. All the tests showed my esophagus was normal but my lower esophageal sphincter was not closing properly.  I was a good candidate and decided on the MUSE, (Endoscopically stapling the esophagus to prevent reflux) When the specialist did his endoscopy (1 year after previous one and before I was on PPIs regularly)  he saw villi damage that looked like textbook Celiac.  HUH?  I don't have ANY symptoms.  No cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gas, discomfort, NOTHING.  He took biopsies and the results were "non-specific" perhaps "clinically latent celiac sprue" or a number of other things. So I took blood tests.  The celiac gene test was "susceptible" and I had "high" antibodies, but not positive.  Dr said go gluten-free to prevent  celiac. Did the PPIs cause the villi damage because I couldn't absorb the wheat properly and triggered celiac in me?  It sounds reasonable.   I wonder if now that I have had the MUSE and may be able to stop PPIs, will I be able to digest gluten better? Very interesting.  I plan to call a celiac specialist where I live to discuss this with him. I have not eaten gluten intentionally for 2.5 months now.  It did not help my GERD before the surgery.  Dr said they were unrelated anyway.  I am concerned about CC, breathing in, and accidental ingestion, but since I have no symptoms, I can never tell.  So I take glutenease when I eat out and glutamine powder to try to repair the damage.  How careful should I be since I don't have it "yet"? Amy's gluten-free frozen foods are great, and I read every label at Trader Joe's, eat off the gluten-free menu, corn tortillas @ Mexican, no soy sauce or imitation crab @ sushi, steamed veggies @ Chinese, & gluten-free pasta @ Italian. Member Lisa wrote, "Even though you eat as gluten free as possible, you probably consume close to that amount of gluten due to cross contamination in processed gluten free food and other exposures. ...Eating 100% gluten free is a total improbability. "
      Most people with Celiac can handle 20ppm.  So is that equivalent to breathing in flour?  Having a half a teaspoon of soy sauce by accident in Asian food?  I can live without bread and cookies, but gluten is IN  so many things. Some on this site with Celiac have separate toasters, don't eat out, and don't walk into bakeries while there are others that eat out and eat fries made in shared oil at BK.  Even I haven't done that.  Isn't it dangerous? Thank you for you help!!
    • Pins And Needles
      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.
