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

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I brought a freshly-baked loaf to a couple I met recently and they were just so excited. The (Celiac) woman said it had been years since she'd had a slice of bread that wasn't previously toasted.

She was diagnosed after years and years and years of illness and after literally being sent home to die. Very sad story. She was just so happy to be diagnosed as a Celiac. Can you imagine? I guess sadly many of you can indeed imagine.

Anyway, it made me feel really good to be able to share this bread with this couple.

Did you mean you used brown rice for the gluten-free flour and sorghum for the garfava? Would you please let us know exactly what you used for all the flours listed in the original recipe?

Thanks. lm

I didn't use garfava flour. I used brown rice (superfine) and sorghum and it was wonderful. I did use the flax seed .....

See my post #13 under this thread for what I used. The short answer is yes.

I haven't seen this sorghum flour anywhere. Have been to Whole Foods, Central Market (a larger, even nicer Whole Foods), and two large Asian Supermarkets here in Dallas.

I'm wondering if this is a real Flour, or a starch flour. A real flour will have fiber & protein listed on the nutrition label. A starch flour will have neither, only calories.

If someone that has some sorghum flour would be so kind as to look at the label and let me know, then I could figure out what to sustitute it with.

Thanks, lm

I'm looking at my bag of Authentic Foods Sorghum FLour Superfine -- for a 3 TBSP serving size, there are 2 g of Dietary fiber, 6g of Sugar, and 2.6 g of protein.

I bought mine at the local health food store in Needham Massachusetts -- places that stock Authentic Foods brand flours should be able to order it as well. I think you can also order it from Twin Valley Mills.

Okay, I was taking a break from the great gluten-free bread baking project this week as I've been getting a little frustrated with all the flops...but you've inspired me to try again. I even found garfava flour while doing my regular grocery shopping at Kroger, so maybe that's a good sign :P Of course it's just dawned on me that I'm missing cornstarch, so it might have to wait until tomorrow.

Anyway, I have one very critical question as this seems to be my biggest challenge. What's the best way to replace the eggs? If I use Ener-G, exactly how much do I use to replace 2 eggs and 2 egg whites?? And should I actually "mix" the egg replacer and water, then add to other ingredients, or should I add egg replacer powder to the dry ingredients and increase the water??? It seems everywhere I look for advice, there's a different suggestion, though so far none of them had resulted in success.

Either way, I'm actually looking forward to trying this, so at the very least you've given me renewed hope. :D

I've made this a couple times vegan.

I think I need to bake it a little more as it is a little gummy but my children love it and so do I. I've been using Annalise Roberts bread mix (1 cup) and her muffin mix (1/2 cup). I think next time I'll stick totally with the bread mix and see if that makes a difference.

I also used 3 egg equivalent for ener-g egg replacer.

It doesn't turn out with a rounded top but none of my homemade breads have. They still taste good though.

for what it's worth, my actual original recipe did call for the egg-replacer instead of the eggs.

does the bread taste "beany"? i bought some chocolate chip cookie mix once, and when i made the cookies, all i could taste was that bitter chickpea flavor. i've been very hesitant have anything to do w/ bean flour since.

i am excited though to try this bread, as i just got a full time job, and was looking for something to take w/ me for lunches!

Can someone tell me if there is a difference between "Flax Seed Meal" and "Milled Flax Seed"? If so, where can I find Flax Seed Meal at? Thanks so much. I can't wait to make this bread.

I haven't used the garfava flour. You can use any combo of gluten free flours.

Check out my new avatar! :D It's a picture of Lorka's bread, but I baked it!

I made it exactly like the recipezaar recipe (I used eggs and milk) except the baking pan had about the same volume, but rather than 9x5 it was 11x4.

I think it tastes good, but the test will be whether Ty eats it and the real test will be whether Ty's dad, a self-proclaimed bread addict, likes it.

Oh my, this is sooooo.... GOOD!

I thought I was eating wheat bread!!!

My darling husband has voluntered to quit having bread in the house, bless him. I offered to bake him some gluten-free bread and since so many were raving about this bread recipe, I gave it a try. Unfortunately, I let it rise too much and it fell after I took it out of the oven, but we sliced it anyway and then toasted it.

Did I say this was really good!!!??? I could sit down and eat half a loaf all by myself. I think he'll be happy with this substitute. He especially likes whole wheat and this tastes so much like it, and it has the fiber he wants.

I used only water (no milk), used arrowroot instead of cornstarch, and used flax meal I had ground myself (flax seed in a blender - works like a charm). It really has too many eggs for me, so I'm going to try it without and see what happens. I can't use Enger-g egg replacer because of the corn it. Any suggestions from you eggless bakers?? It already has flax, so probably can't use that.

Hi,

We are eggless as well. One good eggless option is to use some applesauce as a binder, but you still need another rising agent. Here is an egg replacer recipe. It calls for baking powder, so here is a recipe for corn free baking powder. Hope this is helpful.

Well I thought I would add my two cents in about this bread recipe!!!! In one word it was wonderful.I had so many flours that wouldn't by themselves make a recipe of anything so I just used all these different flours . I wasn't sure what I would end up with plus I'm not a wonderful bread maker.... I don't know what got into me but I experimented & it was soooo good. My husband ate half the loaf !!!! By the way he is not celiac. So I made a hit with the bread. The real test was with the kids ..... when they got to eat a slice they raved about how soft it was....there went the other half loaf....

The best thing about it for me was it is so easy....

hope you all try it.

Yep, it's good. You can use any flour combo. I use Annalise Roberts flour combo since I have some mixed already. I just added some amaranth but haven't tried that loaf yet.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    • Fmbm, Most fortified foods contain the Alpha form of Vitamin E. It (E) and Vitamin A used to be recommended for Lung Cancers but when the Alpha form of E showed no benefit upon a follow up study Vitamin E has fallen out of favor. Try a whole food source when possible.  Sunflower and Sesame seeds and raw Almonds are all good sources of Vitamin E. Here is a good article on the benefits of Sesame seeds for Vitamin E. http://inhumanexperiment.blogspot.com/2009/01/sesame-seeds-increase-absorption-of.html If you take Vitamin E as mixed (all the tocohpherols) or a Gamma form you are more likely to benefit from taking Vitamin E. Here is the National Institute of Health page on Vitamin E. https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminE-HealthProfessional/ Fbmb (be careful) Life extension magazine are trying to sell you their vitamins but they usually have good research. If you want to read about why mixed (gamma and alpha) forms are better together then read this article. http://www.lifeextension.com/Magazine/2011/1/Critical-Importance-of-Gamma-E-Tocopherol-Continues-to-Be-Overlooked/Page-01 luckily most food forms are naturally balanced .. . while fortified foods typically only has the alpha (synthetic forms) and that is because it is the form measured easiest in the blood though as I understand it gamma is the more potent form in the body. I had a friend who swore by it (Vitamin E) in megadoses for his cholesterol but Vitamin E in the Alpha form at least didn't seem to help mine. But I did find raw almonds (or just Almonds) and Sesame seeds helped. Walnuts are also a source of Vitamin E and they are heart healthy too if you can  afford them. ****this is not medical advice but I hope this is helpful. Posterboy,  
    • My understanding is that some wheat has lower amounts of gluten.  If you have Celiac, that doesn’t matter.  But if you don’t have Celiac but have another issue - like a FODMAP problem- that might be OK.  
    • Thank you so much. This has been very helpful. I will pursue with PC. Appreciate your insights.  
    • What is the difference between American flour and wheat flour from Finland? When we lived in Scandinavia my wife could eat bread with wheat flour. We moved to Texas six years ago and my wife became severely intolerant to wheat. She can't have the smallest crumb without a reaction. She gets bumps and severe abdominal pain. Anyway, we decided to have some wheat flour shipped from Finland. My wife has baked bread and cakes with the flour from Finland now, and has not had a reaction as yet! Yes, she is still careful. She is afraid to overdo it and suffer, but so far she has been doing OK.  She has also met others that have been able to tolerate European flour, but not American. My wife has also tried other European flour, but still experienced problems, so there seems to be something different about the Finnish flour. It contains gluten, but I believe that the gluten content may be slightly lower, while the flour is top quality and makes awesome bread and cakes.  Also food grown in Finland are some of the most wholesome you can find anywhere.  I am interested in finding out if anyone else have a similar experience. My wife is continuing to bake with Finnish wheat flour and seem to be able tolerate it.
