Hahaha

Ummm...I don't think so, Lisa! Posted Image



:lol: :lol:

I think it's a great idea--it will keep you off the streets.

If Lisa only knew exactly what you had to do to tweak that thing so it came out like that...

um, you did write it down, right?? :unsure:

Oh...I can imagine...we've had our fair share of tweaking bread recipes over here...many fresh baked victories...just never got a loaf that tasted great a day or two after baking.

Couldn't help myself - it's been over six months since I've had Udi's or any other decent gluten-free bread. Just recently I made a breadlike substance out of coconut flour and pureed apples - it tasted wonderful to me, but certainly nothing close to fresh baked bread.

For now I'll just keep dreaming of the smell and taste of bread coming out of the oven ~ Sylvia's photo let me have a nice little daydream :)

Well, that's true...it does keep me off the streets! Posted Image And gives me something to do, too, instead of cleaning my house!!!

I have copious notes on many breads I've baked...but am still searching for that *perfect* elusive loaf.

I've actually seen this recipe and a few other similar ones -- patiently waiting until I get almonds back. It is quite funny - I was not a picky eater growing up but the one thing that I could not stand in baked goods was any form of coconut - for now it is the only flour I can use. I can eat banana but they kinda stop things up ;) so I tweaked a similar recipe by replacing mushed banana with pureed green apples - pretty good result and best part is a few batches later I still haven't had a reaction so I'm content for now with my apple bread-like substance, but will keep looking forward to adding things back.

oh sorry, hon....I read your sig line very carefully (or so I thought) and failed to see NUTS at the very end. Thought it would help. My bad. There are many coconut flour recipes out there. I know it's hard when you have to eliminate so many foods. I had a run like that (no eggs, dairy, soy, citrus, coffee, etc. etc. for a while) and it was a total PITA. <_<
Best wishes.

So, IH....how many loaves have I made in the past 2-1/2 years? Way too many to count but I have not bought a loaf since before Christmas when I had too much to do to even think of baking. Some successes, some failures and more bricks than I care to admit. But I will not give up.

So I'll post a pic of my latest success. This is Bette Hagman's Four-Flour Bread. Well, not exactly Four-Flour as I've diddled with the recipe and dumped two batches of her flour mix together, the latest of which included six flours. And I'm still not through with this recipe yet. BTW, this was baked in a 9x4x4" USA pan that I bought from King Arthur Flour. The bread was 5" tall when baked.

Posted Image

My first ever loaf of gluten-free bread was also Ener-G...and after tasting it (blech!), it went into the garbage. Udi's wasn't yet available where I live. And I've tried Rudi's. Sadly I haven't found Canyon Bakehouse, which my daughter in Denver raves about and is able to buy fresh from Whole Foods (it's made in Loveland, CO, which is just north of Denver). So in the meantime, I'm challenged to keep on baking and searching for the holy grail of gluten-free bread. Posted Image



I bought the same pan to make bread in, Sylvia, and I love it! Mile high bread!

Gemini and IH...who ever thought we could get such a thrill from owning that loaf pan!!! Posted Image I think I need to add some more USA pans to my wish list. I also have the 8-1/2" x 4-1/2" for smaller loaves.

Thanks IrishHeart! :) I work for a school system and went back to work after my summer break at the same time my grandson was born! They live with me, so life is often very busy here! I'm trying to get back here more often now!

When Udi's first came out with their hotdog and hamburger buns, I was excited to get some for my daughter who had gone without for so long. What happens when you do without for years? Your taste buds change . . . you develop a new norm. She hates buns on her hot dogs and hamburgers. "It's too dry. It soaks up all my ketchup" :P

What do you do with a package of hotdog buns? I make little garlic breads out of them for spaghetti night . . . she loves them. She loves the buns, just not on her hotdogs. :lol:

Udi's and Rudi's are interchangeable here. All depends on which one is on sale. I love that I can get them both at my local Kroger and it's cheaper than Whole Foods.

I've used the Ener-G bread for bread crumbs. It was fine in the finished product but even the smell is bad . . . way too yeasty or somethin'.


I sometimes use the hotdog rolls for sub sandwiches. I agree,sometimes I'd rather have a hotdog without the bun.
