Making Bread

Recommended Posts

My mom bought me The Gluten Free Kitchen by Roben Ryberg. I have made the Applesauce Quick Bread. The first batch was very gummy and very weird tasting. The second bacth was still weird tasting but was not as gummy I have not bought a new toaster yet so I grilled it with butter and it was ok I put some jam on it and it was kinda like french toast. Today I tried the All Purpose Loaf. It was described as comparable to a heavier white bread plain but pleasant. It was discusting and gummy. I threw it in the trash after one taste. I need to use receipies that don't have rice in them so was thinking the potato starch and cornstarch would work for me. Anybody got an idea what I did wrong. I followed the directions to the letter and did the toothpick test. It came out clean. When I did the first batch of Applesauce bread the same thing happened on the second one I cooked it for 10 extra minutes. It calls for milk, yeast, potato starch , cornstarch, salt, baking powder, xanthan gum, honey, oil.

27 years of misdiognoses

seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet

rheumatoid arthritis May 1980

wrist joint replacement Jan 1984

fibromyalgia May 1980

insomnia since the 80's

diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds

Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea

Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:

depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.

Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

In answer to my prayer, "Lord Please Heal My Broken Body". May 2007 Celiac antibody test positive

Mixing well enough but this stuff doesn't rise according to the directions. You make it and pop it in the oven. It didn't get any bigger I did notice that. The crust was done but the inside was gummy.

It does have yeast in it right? I would think letting it rise in a warm place would help the gummy middle!

Yes it had both yeast and baking powder. I will give letting it rise a try. I considered myself a pretty good cook and an excellent baker until I started working with this stuff.

Thanks,

Yellow Rose,

Boyyyyyyyyyy u sound just like me :lol:

I have wasted so much time and money this week trying everyones bread recp's but so far the only thing that I made that turned out was Irsih Daves pizza crust and it was alot better then the cardboard ones I made before lol

If u go to this web sight it shows u wht it should look like in the steps :http://www.savorypalate.com/default.aspx

it has bread 101 lol

I have tried only one recp. so far and it flopped but I"m going to try her potato bread looks yummy and I have to buy more flours .

None of the breads r looking like real bread so don't give up hope and they don't even come close to the taste, but if I find one that does I will sure pass it along to ya :)

And yes this is a very hard disease to eat for but just think of not being sick any more :)

Well good luck !

I never tried the GFP bread mixes, but try the Anna's bread mixes. They are really great. You can find them at Wild Oats or on her site, which is Gluten Evolution. You don't need the bread machine for her specialty mixes like the banana or pumpkin breads. Only the "regular" bread, like you would use for a sandwich.

I make the regular GFP Favorite Sandwich Bread mix in my oven in a loaf pan and it turns out so consistently great that I got bored and went on to other mixes. I have nothing but admiration for you guys that can do the bread from scratch. I'm working up to it. :-)
