Gluten-free Pantry Mixes

Recommended Posts

Hi. A store nearby was going out of business so I picked up 4 of these for half price. i was really excited.

I got the french bread/pizza crust one and I'm wondering. Can I make on the dough cycle in the bread machine and then shape into small loaves and rise again and bake?

I want to make chicken cheese steaks for dinner tomorrow night, but I need buns for that. Will it work if I do that? I don't want to waste an expensive mix if I don't have to!

THANKS!

OH...also, I have the brownie mix. I have a girlfriend who's daughter is allergic to dairy, AND soy so I can't use oil either (maybe canola would be okay?) Can I use apple sauce for the oil and like egg beaters? or are egg beaters eggs?

THANKS!

Sorry I didn't see this before....

Good luck with your rolls. I use the GFP French Bread mix and love it--but I don't use a breadmaker. I just mix it in my KitchenAid and bake it in a loaf pan in the oven. Comes out great--and smells good, too :)

I have made dinner roll-sized rolls with it--I shaped the dough, and baked the rolls on a cookie sheet. I know some people do rolls in a muffin pan. (Of course, that wouldn't work for cheesesteaks!)

Enjoy your sandwiches--that sounds so good.

Edit: I just remembered you also asked about the brownie mix--it's fantastic! I always use oil with mine (I'm dairy free, too). I've used canola in the past, and now use expeller pressed sunflower. Both ways turn out fine.

Egg beaters do contain real eggs.

I love the brownie mix, I even have fooled non-celiacs at work with them. They honestly taste like the real thing. Too bad I dont have a bag on hand....I am not craving them. :)

Thanks. I didn't get to make them yet. I got too wrapped up with other stuff. I tried to use the bread from the bakery I had gotten. YUCK. It's REALLY bad.

i will try it tomorrow. I more think I'll make them into rolls anyway b/c if it doesn't taste right, I don't want to force myself to eat it too fast. Does that make sense?

Will I EVER like gluten free bread? I mean I LOVED bread. I ate it almost every day. And I just don't like the gluten free breads I've had. :( I miss bread. WAAAAA WAAAAA!!!!

I have not yet used this particular brownie mix, but I have substituted applesauce for oil in many other recipes. It works pretty well for baking mixes. My DD is also soy free so I just bought canola oil for use in bread mixes.
