Gluten Free Pantry French Bread Mix

Recommended Posts

Hello,

So, I'm getting ready for my first gluten-free Thanksgiving. Bought GFP French Bread Mix. Thought I would bake it up today, eat some with dinner and freeze half for stuffing for Thanksgiving. Looked at the directions :huh:I need a bread machine! I don't know what I was thinking but I don't have a bread machine! The closest thing I have is an old food processor that does have dough type hooks.

Can I use that? I'm sure I won't be kneading dough by hand - that is just way too much! What should I do?

Thanks!

I have a box of that mix. I haven't made it yet, but on my box it has directions on how to use a heavy duty mixer and the oven. They are located just below the directions for the bread machine. If you need them, let me know. I can type them up for you.

Your the best ptkds!

I make this bread about every two weeks or so--I always use my Kitchen Aid mixer and bake it in the oven. It comes out fine :)

PS--I use water in place of any milk and light olive oil as the oil/butter. Delicious!

Also, it makes a bit too much dough for my Pyrex loaf pan, so I use the rest of the dough for hamburger rolls.

Well, it's in the oven now. My regular mixer had dough hooks I forgot about because I've never used them. I was surprised that the dough was smooth and easy to work with. Guess I expected a heavy thick dough. I used water and corn oil - wasn't sure if my olive oil would be too heavy(it's not lite).

Great idea making the extra into hamburger rolls. :)

I'll let you know how my first bread experience turns out! :unsure:

Well, it's done. I'm not overly impressed, but it's not too bad either. White bread/french bread isn't something I'm real fond of non gluten free so I'm not surprised. Seems like the texture will work as stuffing. If not, I think I'll try a corn bread stuffing next time.

Yes--like I said above, I bake a loaf but my bread pan is a bit small, so I use the leftover dough to make into rolls.

I usually make them hamburger bun size, but I've also made them smaller. Just drop the dough on a cookie sheet and shape with plastic wrap between your hands and the dough(easier that way ;) ). Let it rise for the 40 minutes and then bake until golden brown.

I just bought that mix myself and I do have a bread machine, but I mixed it by hand, covered it with plastic wrap in the pan to rise and then baked it, it was good! I loved freshly baked homemade bread, you just can't beat it with store bought types, especially when it's gluten-free. gluten-free pantry also makes a yankee cornbread mix that I plan to use for my cornbread dressing. Good luck and have a happy thanksgiving!
