Bread Tutorial Video
0

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 :(

    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
