How Do I Bake My Bread?

Recommended Posts

My dad bought me a second hand bread making machine by Oster. I'm not sure how to bake the bread for a gluten-free diet. It does not have settings to make gluten-free bread, so I'm not sure what settings to enter. Do i use settings for white bread, wheat, sourdough????? How long do I bake it? Is there a web site that explains all this, with how to bake bread with a bread machine?


I like the way my stomach feels now, too much, to go back to the way and the what I used to eat.

I have no idea on how to bake bread with a bread machine. I just want to say that it may be risky to bake with a used bread machine, since it is most likely that gluten bread was baked in it before.

Others here baked bread with bread machines and will likely have an idea what to do.

"A second hand bread machine" draws a big concern from me. It is very difficult to clean a previously owned bread machine and the chance of you being glutened by cross contamination would be great.

Thoughtful of you dad though.

My dad and I cleaned the machine throughly several times. He even removed screws and and that turny thinga-ma-jig, whatha -you -call-it :P , and other removeable items and cleaned those. The machine looks to have been used once and then gotten rid of. It's probably cleaner now than when it left the warehouse. I would of gotten a new one, but i have no money, unable to work and the parents take care of me and my dad is buying expensive meds for my Fibromyalgia. So I took a chance with the second hand bread machine.

Seeing as how thoroughly you and your dad cleaned the machine, it should be fine I think. As an extra measure of safety, why not bake the first gluten-free loaf and let your parents (and others who can eat gluten) enjoy it before you start baking for yourself. :)

I don't have any machine-baking tips--I bake my bread in the oven.

Good idea Jerseyangel. I would've used the oven except my dad is an oven hogger. He's become the family chef. :rolleyes:

I have not had a lot of luck with my bread machine and the different kinds have different settings and such. Perhaps if you could tell us specifically which one you have, someone with that kind can be of more help to you.

I do know that gluten-free bread can not take a second rise. So use whatever setting you have that doesn't do the second rise. That was my biggest mistake.

:lol: I actually did a message the other day with the type of bread machine I have. No one was replying to it, not til I left this topic and now the other is getting replies. It's an Oster by the way.

You can buy Pamela's bread mix and use the regular white bread setting. Gluten free bread doesn't need all the steps on the bread machine, but it's my understanding that it won't hurt the bread to use that regular white bread setting.

I use the white bread setting on my bread machine, but I turn the machine off after the bread is mixed well, then I let it rise for 1 hour, then turn machine back on and go to a special setting that lets me bake for 350 degrees for about 1 hr and 1o mins.

I checked out a book at my library (can't remember the name of it :P ) that told me how to bake gluten free bread in a bread machine. Very informative.

Happy experimenting--- it's not really that difficult. :)

Actually, I did think of something. I make Gluten Free Pantry French Bread regularly, and on the back of the box there are instructions on how to make it in a bread maker. Judy (judyinphilly) does hers this way.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Hopefully I'll get the bread baking right. I'm terrible at cooking. :(
