Bread Machine Mixes- What Ones Work (and Taste) Best?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a bread machine that I have used a few times, but have yet to find a bread that I really like.

I'm not a fan of gluten-free Pantry's Sandwich Bread- it comes out too doughy and wet for me and the taste was just ok. I tried making Bob's Red Mill mix and love the texture but don't like the beany taste. Is there something I can add to mask the flavor of the beans? Perhaps sundried tomatoes, parmesan cheese, garlic or feta cheese? If so, would I have to modify the other quantities of wet ingredients to add?

Anyone have good luck with any bread machine mixes where both the texture and taste were right on?

Hi Marcia!

There are numerous brands of gluten-free bread mixes. You may want to try another brand of mix; you are not the only one unimpressed by the taste of the Bob RM mix. I am actually not the best person to advise you on bread machines. I could never get my bread to turn out with the correct consistency or taste good. However, MANY others on here have had success with bread machines. You may want to do a search through past posts.

I have found it just as easy to leave my mixer on the kitchen counter as a bread machine...and with practice, my homemade bread, muffins, and cakes turn out much closer to the wheat version.

When I add a small amount of dry ingredients/spices to my bread, I generally don't add additional water. I usually can tell as I mix it if the consistency is wrong. If it is, I add a small amount of liquid (1 tsp.) at a time until the texture is correct. Now, in a bread machine, I'm not sure..hopefully someone else will respond and help.

Happy gluten free baking! :) -Julie

Hi Marcia,

Tried Pamela's Wheat Free Bread Mix and pretty good. Didn't like the bean taste either on BRM. There is a really good site to go to for gluten-free recipes and bread machine tips. It's www.glutenfreegoddess.com. Her name is Karina and the site is outstanding. I'm going to try her brownies today. Just bought a Breadman Pro and used her tips for my first loaf. I put machine on knead for 20 minutes, let rise 60 minutes and bake 60. The house smelled great (good sign) and we could hardly wait to dig in. Used medium crust setting and had good texture. Second and third day just as good. I think you'll like her site. The pics are beautiful and my daughter and I almost cried when we saw the brownies. We were both just diagnosed and trying hard to stay with diet. Good brownies will help. Good luck with bread.

Welcome to the forum Mamasaidso! (l like your screen name) B)

I thought I would also add that Betty Hagman and Carol Fenster are two excellent cookbook authors.

I love baking cakes, cookies, brownies, muffins, ahhhhh...I'm hungry :D

If you and your daughter are ever craving anything specific, post a topic about it. Usually, plenty of people answer.

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
Water?! That's… unreasonably inconvenient. Did it happen with sweat?
