The Most Delicious Home-made Gluten Free Bread I've Ever Tasted...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay, I can't find garfava or sorghum locally. :( I have rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour/starch, flaxseed meal, and Arrowhead Mills all purpose wheat free baking mix. Any recommendations for some substitutions there? I really want to try this out and I can't get to the HFS or place an order for another week or two.

You can do all rice flour in place of the bean flour and for the gluten-free flour (1 1/2 cups total rice flour). You can do tapioca starch if you don't have corn starch. I like the taste of sorghum added to brown rice but it will definitely work without sorghum or bean flour and you may like it better with all rice but it's fun to try dif. combos of flour til you find the taste you like. As many have said before, including the creator of the recipe, Laurie, it is a very forgiving recipe and can handle substitutions and changes in flour well.

I have this in the oven right now! I made the following substitutions, since I can't tolerate potato starch, cornstarch, bean flours, and of course the eggs:

Gluten Free Flour, 1 1/4 cups:

3/4 c. brown rice flour

2T quinoa flour

2T amaranth flour

2T sweet rice flour

2T millet flour

In place of the 1/4 c. garfava flour: 1/4 c. sorghum flour

In place of the 1/2 c. potato starch and 1/4 c. cornstarch: arrowroot starch

In place of two eggs and two whites: 3T flaxmeal and water to 1/3 cup

Everything else was as originally written.

I don't have a stand mixer, so I mixed it as long as I could with a wooden spoon.

I let it rise for 80 minutes in a warm oven--and no, it did not rise to the top of the pan, it is barely halfway up the sides of the pan. Maybe a 9x5 pan is too big. If it makes it to the top of the pan in the course of baking, I will be overjoyed.

It is now about 20 minutes from being done. It never rose more than about 1/4". I know there is nothing wrong with the yeast--it is fresh.

Where did I go wrong?

(1) Is there something funny about arrowroot starch that I don't know?

(2) Is it essential to own a stand mixer for this recipe to succeed?

(3) Are there other flours that work better when you cannot use eggs or egg replacer?

Thanks for your help.

Well! I think I have already figured out a way to solve my problem: I will use baking soda and grain-free baking powder for the rise, with yeast added for flavor only. I have seen recipes that work this way before. I will also put it in an 8x4 pan and bake it at a lower temperature (325) for longer (about an hour).

Overall, it still made a perfect, wheat-like crumb, and the flour combination I used totally recreated the taste of wheat! I feel like I have really hit on something! :D

I'm going to share this with my friends and see if they think it tastes like wheat!

Hi Everyone! This is my first time posting on this forum. I've been reading threads here since last week when I happened on this site. After reading all the raves on this bread I had to go out and buy myself flours to make this. I made it to go with soup for my dinner tonight and it came out perfect. That was my first time ever making bread with yeast and I must say it wasn't as hard as it had always seemed. My non-celiac parents enjoyed it too. It was so flavorful and so bread like. I have been eating the Food for Life Brown Rice Bread and it is like a brick. My old roommate said I never had to worry about being robbed on the way home from the store as I could just use the bread to knock out my attacker. I recently bought the a bread from ener-g and although it was soft and bread like, it did not taste too great.

Thank you to everyone who commented and convinced me to try my hand at baking bread.

:D You all absolutely have to try this bread. I cannot speak highly enough about its texture, taste, and ease of making it. It has that soft texture that is so familiar. Not crumbly at all!

We served it to our guests over Christmas and we all loved it. It's better fresh than after a couple of days but you don't have to toast it, you don't have to freeze it. It's simply delicious.

So thank you Laurie for this wonderful recipe. I really hope more people will try it and love it as much as we do!

I've been looking at this recipe for a while now, planned on trying it but never got around to it. Since my dh went gluten-free, he's been on me to come up with a "normal" bread. Now, I like the Pamela's wheat free bread mix, but i made this last night and I LOVE this!!! I had to make a few substitutions with the flour, but it tastes like "normal" bread--better, if you ask me. My dh really likes it and it will now be a staple in our house. I'm going to make up baggies of the dry ingredients and keep in the fridge to expedite the process. I did the rise in a turned off oven, it rose over the edge of the pan in 60 minutes, so I went ahead and turned the oven on from there. It shrunk only a little, and really is flawless. I know you've heard it before, but THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!! :D

This really is my favorite bread recipe! I made a batch of it on Wed night, half made into stuffing, and the other half into rolls. Both turned out fantastic! Best part of my thanksgiving feast! I just threw a double batch into the oven to have sandwiches and french toast for this week. I love it!

I subbed in soy milk and agave nectar :) So good!

has anybody made this in a bread maker? I have a zojirushi x20 and was wondering if I could use the regular white bread setting for this or should I customize it? also does anybody substitute other flours for garfava flour? thats the only one I cant find.

I can't wait to try this bread...I really, really miss bread. My favorite snack in the whole world was a loaf of sourdough or French bread and some butter...I've been making bread since I was 10 years old - that's 41 years. Now, no bread. My sister recommended some Glutino Flax seed bread, and it was so foul. I spit it into the trash and dumped my plate. It was like chewing on a spoonful of seeds (and I love whole grain bread!). That is not bread. I had tried Udi's whole grain bread (pretty yummy), but now my health food store says it's out of stock and they can't get it in. I need bread. I need toast. I need breakfast. I need a PB&J sandwich. I need to make some bread.

I am so excited to read about this!!!

No matter what recipe I use, I usually let the yeast hang out in the warm liquid for 10 min. to get a good start. The liquid should be no more than 110 degrees. Usually just lightly warm to the touch is good.

I've made this bread twice now, the 1st time I messed up and forgot to add the vinegar and didn't notice I subbed tapioca for the corn starch. The 2nd time I got it right and started baking it before it reached the edge of the pan. Both times it rose ridiculously high and spectacularly collapsed when I pulled it out of the oven:( I've read the whole thread and for the life of me I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong:( The only thing I didn't do was add the flax since I didn't have any, does it make that much of a difference?

It might make that much of a difference. Flax is often used as a "binding" agent in recipes.

Do I need to heat the water/milk?

No. If I use water, I just run it tepid. If I use milk, I just take it straight out of the fridge!

I've never forgot the vinegar, but once I read it wrong and added the vinegar in TBS instead of tsp! Thought it would ruin, but turned out fine. I actually sub the flax with another gluten-free flour bc my kids don't care for the taste of it. I've never had it fail. I can tell you I get varying heights off the bread each time I make it, but the flavor is consistant. This is what I do:

Boil water in a shallow oven-safe skillet (not cast iron!!)

Preheat oven to the lowest temp-mine is 170

Stick pan of water on the lowest rack of the oven (will steam bread)

Follow directions for ingredients

Once in mixer, mix on highest speed for 5 min

Turn off oven

Fill bread pan(s) as directed

Put pans into middle rack of oven for 80 minutes.

--if bread has started to slide a bit over the sides of the pan, I just scoop all that dough back onto the middle of the loaf

Turn oven to temp suggested

I bake mine for 45 minutes

I test mine by giving the top of the loaf a thump, if it sounds hollow and the top is nice and crusty, I call it done!

Cool on a rack for ~10 minutes

Remove from pans (so bottoms don't get soggy)

Cool on racks completely--unless you can't stand it and you MUST have a slice with some homemade jam, but that's just me :D

I have kind of a dumb question...do you take the pan of hot water out of the oven when you bake the bread or just leave it in?

I have a very hard time trying to cool bread completely before I cut off a slice. tongue.gif

Hello everyone! Glad to see this thread is still kicking. This is my bread recipe, and to answer the question about the flax, it's a must for this specific recipe.

If anyone ever has troubleshooting, feel free to shoot me an email (send me a PM first). I don't come to the boards too often as I'm pretty busy but will help anyone via email no problem! My all bread book will be out in 2011; we're just going through the editing process right now.

Speaking of which... If you have requests, let me know. I can still add a few in there! :)

I'm assuming the vinegar is white vinegar.

I would assume it's cider vinegar :)

That tends to be what is used as a leavener in gluten-free bread recipes :)

So I discovered! After adding flax it came out much better but I think I need to reduce the yeast by 1/2tsp since I'm still getting the uneven funky rising thing going on but its like 3-4 inches instead of the 6-8 it was doing without the flax.

For the book you have right now, have you considered selling digital copies? The price of shipping makes the book pretty expensive and is a major drawback, at least for me. I'm spoiled by Amazons free shipping:)

    Celiac.com 04/25/2018 - A team of Yale University researchers discovered that bacteria in the small intestine can travel to other organs and trigger an autoimmune response. In this case, they looked at Enterococcus gallinarum, which can travel beyond the gut to the spleen, lymph nodes, and liver. The research could be helpful for treating type 1 diabetes, lupus, and celiac disease.
    In autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, lupus, and celiac disease, the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells and tissues. Autoimmune disease affects nearly 24 million people in the United States. 
    In their study, a team of Yale University researchers discovered that bacteria in the small intestine can travel to other organs and trigger an autoimmune response. In this case, they looked at Enterococcus gallinarum, which can travel beyond the gut to the spleen, lymph nodes, and liver. They found that E. gallinarum triggered an autoimmune response in the mice when it traveled beyond the gut.
    They also found that the response can be countered by using antibiotics or vaccines to suppress the autoimmune reaction and prevent the bacterium from growing. The researchers were able to duplicate this mechanism using cultured human liver cells, and they also found the bacteria E. gallinarum in the livers of people with autoimmune disease.
    The team found that administering an antibiotic or vaccine to target E. gallinarum suppressed the autoimmune reaction in the mice and prevented the bacterium from growing. "When we blocked the pathway leading to inflammation," says senior study author Martin Kriegel, "we could reverse the effect of this bug on autoimmunity."
    Team research team plans to further investigate the biological mechanisms that are associated with E. gallinarum, along with the potential implications for systemic lupus and autoimmune liver disease.
    This study indicates that gut bacteria may be the key to treating chronic autoimmune conditions such as systemic lupus and autoimmune liver disease. Numerous autoimmune conditions have been linked to gut bacteria.

    Celiac.com 04/24/2018 - Did you know in 2017 alone, the United States had OVER TENS OF THOUSANDS of people evacuate their homes due to natural disasters such as fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and tsunamis? Most evacuation sites are not equipped to feed your family the safe gluten free foods that are required to stay healthy.  Are you prepared in case of an emergency? Do you have your Gluten Free Emergency Food Bag ready to grab and go?  
    I have already lived through two natural disasters. Neither of which I ever want to experience again, but they taught me a very valuable lesson, which is why I created a Gluten Free Emergency Food Bag (see link below). Here’s my story. If you’ve ever lived in or visited the Los Angeles area, you’re probably familiar with the Santa Ana winds and how bitter sweet they are. Sweet for cleaning the air and leaving the skies a brilliant crystal blue, and bitter for the power outages and potential brush fires that might ensue.  It was one of those bitter nights where the Santa Ana winds were howling, and we had subsequently lost our power. We had to drive over an hour just to find a restaurant so we could eat dinner. I remember vividly seeing the glow of a brush fire on the upper hillside of the San Gabriel Mountains, a good distance from our neighborhood. I really didn’t think much of it, given that it seemed so far from where we lived, and I was hungry! After we ate, we headed back home to a very dark house and called it a night. 
    That’s where the story takes a dangerous turn….about 3:15am. I awoke to the TV blaring loudly, along with the lights shining brightly. Our power was back on! I proceeded to walk throughout the house turning everything off at exactly the same time our neighbor, who was told to evacuate our street, saw me through our window, assuming I knew that our hillside was ablaze with flames. Flames that were shooting 50 feet into the air. I went back to bed and fell fast asleep. The fire department was assured we had left because our house was dark and quiet again. Two hours had passed.  I suddenly awoke to screams coming from a family member yelling, “fire, fire, fire”! Flames were shooting straight up into the sky, just blocks from our house. We lived on a private drive with only one way in and one way out.  The entrance to our street was full of smoke and the fire fighters were doing their best to save our neighbors homes. We literally had enough time to grab our dogs, pile into the car, and speed to safety. As we were coming down our street, fire trucks passed us with sirens blaring, and I wondered if I would ever see my house and our possessions ever again. Where do we go? Who do we turn to? Are shelters a safe option? 
    When our daughter was almost three years old, we left the West Coast and relocated to Northern Illinois. A place where severe weather is a common occurrence. Since the age of two, I noticed that my daughter appeared gaunt, had an incredibly distended belly, along with gas, stomach pain, low weight, slow growth, unusual looking stool, and a dislike for pizza, hotdog buns, crackers, Toast, etc. The phone call from our doctor overwhelmed me.  She was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I broke down into tears sobbing. What am I going to feed my child? Gluten is everywhere.
    After being scoped at Children's Hospital of Chicago, and my daughters Celiac Disease officially confirmed, I worried about her getting all the nutrients her under nourished body so desperately needed. I already knew she had a peanut allergy from blood tests, but just assumed she would be safe with other nuts. I was so horribly wrong. After feeding her a small bite of a pistachio, which she immediately spit out, nuts would become her enemy. Her anaphylactic reaction came within minutes of taking a bite of that pistachio. She was complaining of horrible stomach cramps when the vomiting set in. She then went limp and starting welting. We called 911.
    Now we never leave home without our Epipens and our gluten free food supplies. We analyze every food label. We are hyper vigilant about cross contamination. We are constantly looking for welts and praying for no stomach pain. We are always prepared and on guard. It's just what we do now. Anything to protect our child, our love...like so many other parents out there have to do every moment of ever day!  
    Then, my second brush with a natural disaster happened, without any notice, leaving us once again scrambling to find a safe place to shelter. It was a warm and muggy summer morning, and my husband was away on a business trip leaving my young daughter and me to enjoy our summer day. Our Severe Weather Alert Radio was going off, again, as I continued getting our daughter ready for gymnastics.  Having gotten used to the (what seemed to be daily) “Severe Thunderstorm warning,” I didn’t pay much attention to it. I continued downstairs with my daughter and our dog, when I caught a glimpse out the window of an incredibly black looking cloud. By the time I got downstairs, I saw the cover to our grill literally shoot straight up into the air. Because we didn’t have a fenced in yard, I quickly ran outside and chased the cover, when subsequently, I saw my neighbor’s lawn furniture blow pass me. I quickly realized I made a big mistake going outside. As I ran back inside, I heard debris hitting the front of our home.  Our dog was the first one to the basement door! As we sat huddled in the dark corner of our basement, I was once again thinking where are we going to go if our house is destroyed. I was not prepared, and I should have been. I should have learned my lesson the first time. Once the storm passed, we quickly realized we were without power and most of our trees were destroyed. We were lucky that our house had minimal damage, but that wasn’t true for most of the area surrounding us.  We were without power for five days. We lost most of our food - our gluten free food.
    That is when I knew we had to be prepared. No more winging it. We couldn’t take a chance like that ever again. We were “lucky” one too many times. We were very fortunate that we did not lose our home to the Los Angeles wildfire, and only had minimal damage from the severe storm which hit our home in Illinois.
      
    In 2017 alone, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) had 137 natural disasters declared within the United States. According to FEMA, around 50% of the United States population isn’t prepared for a natural disaster. These disasters can happen anywhere, anytime and some without notice. It’s hard enough being a parent, let alone being a parent of a gluten free family member. Now, add a natural disaster on top of that. Are you prepared?

    Celiac.com 04/23/2018 - A team of researchers recently set out to learn whether celiac disease patients commonly suffer cognitive impairment at the time they are diagnosed, and to compare their cognitive performance with non-celiac subjects with similar chronic symptoms and to a group of healthy control subjects.
    The research team included G Longarini, P Richly, MP Temprano, AF Costa, H Vázquez, ML Moreno, S Niveloni, P López, E Smecuol, R Mazure, A González, E Mauriño, and JC Bai. They are variously associated with the Small Bowel Section, Department of Medicine, Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterology Hospital; Neurocience Cognitive and Traslational Institute (INECO), Favaloro Fundation, CONICET, Buenos Aires; the Brain Health Center (CESAL), Quilmes, Argentina; the Research Council, MSAL, CABA; and with the Research Institute, School of Medicine, Universidad del Salvador.
    The team enrolled fifty adults with symptoms and indications of celiac disease in a prospective cohort without regard to the final diagnosis.  At baseline, all individuals underwent cognitive functional and psychological evaluation. The team then compared celiac disease patients with subjects without celiac disease, and with healthy controls matched by sex, age, and education.
    Celiac disease patients had similar cognitive performance and anxiety, but no significant differences in depression scores compared with disease controls.
    A total of thirty-three subjects were diagnosed with celiac disease. Compared with the 26 healthy control subjects, the 17 celiac disease subjects, and the 17 disease control subjects, who mostly had irritable bowel syndrome, showed impaired cognitive performance (P=0.02 and P=0.04, respectively), functional impairment (P<0.01), and higher depression (P<0.01). 
    From their data, the team noted that any abnormal cognitive functions they saw in adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease did not seem not to be a result of the disease itself. 
    Their results indicate that cognitive dysfunction in celiac patients could be related to long-term symptoms from chronic disease, in general.

    Celiac.com 04/21/2018 - Dear Friends and Readers,
    I have been writing articles for Scott Adams since the 2002 Summer Issue of the Scott-Free Press. The Scott-Free Press evolved into the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. I felt honored when Scott asked me ten years ago to contribute to his quarterly journal and it's been a privilege to write articles for his publication ever since.
    Due to personal health reasons and restrictions, I find that I need to retire. My husband and I can no longer travel the country speaking at conferences and to support groups (which we dearly loved to do) nor can I commit to writing more books, articles, or menus. Consequently, I will no longer be contributing articles to the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. 
    My following books will still be available at Amazon.com:
    Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for Dummies Wheat-free Gluten-free Dessert Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Reduced Calorie Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults (revised version) My first book was published in 1996. My journey since then has been incredible. I have met so many in the celiac community and I feel blessed to be able to call you friends. Many of you have told me that I helped to change your life – let me assure you that your kind words, your phone calls, your thoughtful notes, and your feedback throughout the years have had a vital impact on my life, too. Thank you for all of your support through these years.

    Celiac.com 04/20/2018 - A digital media company and a label data company are teaming up to help major manufacturers target, reach and convert their desired shoppers based on dietary needs, such as gluten-free diet. The deal could bring synergy in emerging markets such as the gluten-free and allergen-free markets, which represent major growth sectors in the global food industry. 
    Under the deal, personalized digital media company Catalina will be joining forces with Label Insight. Catalina uses consumer purchases data to target shoppers on a personal base, while Label Insight works with major companies like Kellogg, Betty Crocker, and Pepsi to provide insight on food label data to government, retailers, manufacturers and app developers.
    "Brands with very specific product benefits, gluten-free for example, require precise targeting to efficiently reach and convert their desired shoppers,” says Todd Morris, President of Catalina's Go-to-Market organization, adding that “Catalina offers the only purchase-based targeting solution with this capability.” 
    Label Insight’s clients include food and beverage giants such as Unilever, Ben & Jerry's, Lipton and Hellman’s. Label Insight technology has helped the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) build the sector’s very first scientifically accurate database of food ingredients, health attributes and claims.
    Morris says the joint partnership will allow Catalina to “enhance our dataset and further increase our ability to target shoppers who are currently buying - or have shown intent to buy - in these emerging categories,” including gluten-free, allergen-free, and other free-from foods.
    The deal will likely make for easier, more precise targeting of goods to consumers, and thus provide benefits for manufacturers and retailers looking to better serve their retail food customers, especially in specialty areas like gluten-free and allergen-free foods.
