Adapting Recipes For Breadmaker?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi

I am new to the boards. I do not have Celiac Disease but am following a gluten-free diet due to GI issues and to help with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. It has made a huge difference to my well being over the last seven months. Wow! Seven months already!

I was given a breadmaker and would like to try to use it to make gluten-free breads. However, I don't want to get into buying a lot of flours. I am willing to do so if I can make my own mixes ([url=http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/homemadeconveniencefoods.htm]a l

Does it have a gluten-free setting?

Use the google in the upper right corner to search for " bread machine" or " bread maker". I know we have and lots of posts with recipes and suggestions. If you find a helpful one, you might put the link to it for others who are following along

The main thing is it needs to be a cycle with only one rise. You don't punch down gluten-free dough for a second rise. On my older machine, the "rapid rise" setting is a single rise.

I like the Bob's Red Mill Hearty Whole Grain bread mix. Homemade Wonderful Bread works well too, but I taste the bean flour more strongly in that one. Measuring fluid carefully is VERY important for good results. I have to proof the yeast and mix the wet and dry ingreds by hand until all the flour is moistened. Then I dump the sticky batter/dough into the machine. Gluten-free doughs are too sticky for my machine's paddle to manage to mix in all the flour without a little help.

I've always found the trick with bread machines is the moisture. A dough that's too wet will over-rise, collapse, and underbake. Too dry and it doesn't rise well enough and tends to overbake. It's mostly experimentation and getting a feel for how your favorite recipe works in the machine.

I use a mix called Favorite Sandwich Bread, so good. I use my bread machine on the dough setting. It runs the cycle and then I put it in a pan and cook the old fashioned way. It's my favorite, I don't make it very often but when I do I fall in love with it all over again!

Hornet - it does not have a gluten-free bread setting.

I also wonder if it won't work because every cycle has two rises.

I did the Google before I posted this, but none of the thread titles seemed to be what I needed.

Thanks for tips on mixes - anyone ever adapt a from-scratch recipe?

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
