Need Help Making Bread!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I do not know how to cook, but a friend of mine has a bread maker that was only used once and she is giving it to me. What I need to know is a recipe for just plain gluten free wheat free bread. There may be one on the website, but I have not found one. If someone could help me out I would appreciate it. Also I might need more than than just the ingredients. I'm not sure since I don't know how to cook. Thanks for your help.

I tried (my first time) Bob's Red Mill gluten-free bread mix in my bread maker and it turned out really well. It's a little different than regular bread because it requires quite a few eggs but it was pretty easy all in all.

I know this isn't exactly a recipe but you might consider it for a first time thing - those flour mixes that go into a gluten-free bread recipe can be a bit daunting in my opinion. Good luck. :)

Could you tell me where you got the Bob's Red Mill gluten free bread mix? Thanks.

my homemade flax bread on the site below is the one that all my gluten-eating friends and family says tastes the most like the real thing. it's easy, and you don;t have to toast it, it doesn't crumble, and it doesn't need a bread machine.

Can you bake it in a bread maker? Thanks!

I don't think I would use a bread maker that has previously been used for baking regular gluten containing bread. There is a risk of CC. I don't own one, but can you really clean it sufficiently to eliminate the risk of CC. I would be interested to hear others ideas concerning this. I am really a freak about CC. I hate to get glutened without knowing. I would rather do something purposeful if I have to suffer.

my bread machine was used for regular gluten containing bread before... I just cleaned it VERY thoroughly... the pan is completely immersible in water so I soaked it thoroughly and then every surface on the inside and outside of the bread machine I went over it with q-tips and a toothbrush and throroughly scrubbed it. I've been using it for gluten-free breads for 3 1/2 years with no problems and I'm very sensitive.

In fact, I just put a mix in just a few minutes ago. I use the Pamela's wheat free bread mix. It used to say "Amazing" on the bag but for some reason they changed that, it's still amazing. I substitute a 1/2 cup of the water for 1/2 cup milk and it makes it richer and more moist. The Pamela's is really easy in my bread machine, it has a setting for rapid cycle which means it only kneads the bread once which for gluten-free breads you don't need extra kneading... I also make sure to scrape the sides of the pan with a nylon spatula when it's first mixing and if it looks dry I add more water until it's not dry looking...

I got it at Fred Meyer's which is kind of a west coast Kroger's. You can order it from their website, though. I tried their Biscuit mix and made Scones out of it (orange cranberry) and they turned out suprisingly well. It was a bit hard to handle the dough because it was kinda gooey (the xanthan gum, I guess) but I chilled it a bit and that made it much easier to handle.
