Bread Tutorial Video

10 posts in this topic

I've always love love loved Eleanor's Bake Shop and can't get enough cupcakes. Their bread though is absolutely amazing, but I am not going to drive 30 minutes for a loaf of bread no matter how good it is. So, bored and on facebook far past when I should be in bed and to my surprise I notice that they have posted a nice tutorial because they have begun selling their flour blend in their shop. I'm definitely going to head up soon for some flour, but thought that this might be a nice video for anyone having issues with bread. It's idiot proof enough even for me! Maybe I'll finally bake a bread product that turns out as something other than bricks I wouldn't dare use to poison my worst enemy or feed to the obnoxious dog next door that won't stop barking.

Hi Adalaide, do you know if a hand mixer would work to make this and do you know if she ships her flour? I have not attempted to make bread yet and think I might actually be able to make this. Maybe I will ask Santana for a stand mixer for Christmas.

Thanks for putting up the tutorial. It's what I need to bake things cuz I don't have the experience to tweak.

To the best of my knowledge, she just uses a flour blend like everyone else. I highly doubt they do any shipping, but I can ask when I stop in. It will probably be sometime next week.

I do have experience. I grew up baking bread literally every Saturday of my life until I was 9 and every other after that until I was 16. Still, gluten free bread just doesn't act like BREAD. I have a KitchenAid, I wouldn't live without it. I shared because I felt like the first time that bread is within my capabilities. Maybe, just maybe, I will be able to make something mildly edible.

The video is interesting! I have never seen any baker just dip into the flour bag for gluten-free, usually the ingredients are weighed on a scale..the bread turned out nice..

For the true test I would have liked to have seen her slice the bread. I'd love to see the texture and how it holds together. When I make breads I like to slice a line all across the top slightly on the side so it rises better and looks so gorgeous and rustic. And European. :P

So, Adelaide, how DOES it taste? What is the texture like? Is it great toasted?

Surprised she does not weigh - weighing is far more accurate.

I've never had it toasted. The last time I had it was before I had a toaster and my toaster recently met a glorious demise. (My MIL moved it from my gluten-free counter to her gluten counter and while I'm quite sure it wasn't used she is obsessed with wiping things with her nasty sponge that sits on the back of the sink for 2-3 months at a time. The toaster met the concrete wall in the back yard, I am still nursing a hand injury. Who knew I could throw that far!) Anywho... It finds that perfect balance between soft and firm. I grew up making bread every week so I am used to a good, dense loaf and love it that way. I like bread with substance. It holds together as well as can be expected for sandwiches... so not at all. Although I'm sure it would do so toasted like all other bread does. It isn't far from an Udi's or Rudi's in texture to be perfectly honest but the taste is really great. I'll need her recipe for the honey oat bread.

As always, I enjoy your wit. ;)

I know what you mean about bread with substance - that is how I like mine, too, except for baguettes. Sounds like a winner considering it tastes so good. Hmmmm...I bet I would enjoy it, too. The honey oat sounds great. I've been doing a schwack of experimenting again and have a good honey oat bread recipe, though I'm sure hers will be just as good.

The most recent bread I made actually held together. Well. It didn't rip and tear and do the funky chicken when I spread thick gooey stuff on it. It tasted yeasty and had that oomph I've been searching for.

I'm wondering if toaster tossing could be an official celiac sport? Just thinking about it hitting the concrete feels good. I'd quite like to do that to DHs toaster. Not a fan of being in a mixed house :(
