Bread Recipe

4 posts in this topic

Hi -

Did a quick search of the site and couldn't find anything. I made the sandwich bread using the Bella mix and it was awesome, but also fairly expensive. I was wondering if I could do this myself. Here are the ingredients: Tapioca flour, brown rice flour, sorghum flour, potato starch, flax seed meal, sesame seeds, sea salt, sunflower seeds, organic evaporated cane juice, xantham gum, and yeast.

Anyone have a similar recipe?

Based on some of the recipes I make, I'd give this a try:

Mix the tapioca, brown rice, sorghum, and potato for a total of 2 cups (I'd use 1 cup of brown rice and split the other cup between the rest). 2 or 3 T of ground flaxseed meal, a T of sesame seeds, 1 t of salt, as many sunflower seeds as you like, 2 t of xanthan gum. Mix all those ingredients. I don't know how evaporated cane juice is used or even if you can get it, but a little sugar (maybe 2 t) will help it brown and feed the yeast. Put 2-1/4 t of dry yeast (or one package) in a cup and add a little sugar (1/2 t). To the yeast add about 1/4 cup of warm water and stir, then let it sit for a few minutes. When it has become bubbly and is obviously growing, then you can add it to the dry ingredients along with enough warm water to get all of the dry ingredients wet (probably about 3/4 of a cup, but this can vary and is the trickiest part of these recipes). Mix on medium - high for 3-4 minutes to make sure it's well mixed. It should become smooth except for the seeds and be thicker than cake batter but thinner than normal bread dough (yeah, I know, that's easy for me to say).

Scrape it into a greased 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 pan, cover it with a clean towel and let rise. Preheat the oven to 350. When it rises to the top of the pan (not higher), put it in the oven for 10 minutes. At that point, cover it loosely with foil and bake another 45-50 minutes. At the end of that time, press a finger gently on the top - if it seems very soft and spongy, give it another 5 minutes, and repeat if necessary. Remove from pan to cool. Don't slice it until it is cool.

Without knowing their recipe, it could come out very different but it should still be edible. And you can always use it for croutons. Many recipes have some fat (oil or melted butter) and some eggs to help moisten them and hold them together. You could try that, but watch the amount of water you add because you will have already added some liquid. If you want a larger loaf increase the flours to a total of 3 cups and use a larger pan and another t of xanthan gum, along with more water but no increase in yeast. I have better luck with 2-cup recipes. Good luck!

Perfect - thanks! I should have added that to the mix you are supposed to add 1 c water, 1/4 c oil, and 2 tbs honey or sugar.

Based on those amounts, I'd guess that it contains 2 c of flour total. Good luck! Don't add all the water until you see how the dough looks - keep back about 1/4 cup. The dough should be thick and sticky, but not runny. If it looks too thick, add more water, about a tablespoon at a time and mix it in.

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
