Hello everyone, I am looking for yummy gluten free bread, cake and cookie recipies, I have been thru about 10 of the 375 pages and well thats just too much.

If anyone feels like sharing their recipies it would be greatly appreciated. I am currently using the Jules gluten free flour blend which is working well but all of my bread is falling in the middle. Pretty much all of my bread falls in the middle whether I use the blend from the store or mix my own.

Recipies and tips are greatly welcome.

Thank you.

We love this recipe for banana bread. All the folks at church today were raving about it and very suprized when I told them it was gluten-free. http://glutenfreemommy.com/banana-bread/ My kiddo can't have nuts so I just subbed extra oat(certified gluten-free) flour for the almond meal.

Your breads may need extra baking time. I find that most gluten-free baked goods need to be baked past the point at which I feel that they are done. If they start to brown too much, you can cover parts(top) with aluminum foil to protect it.

I've found that a simple flat bread works the best. I make this almost every day and we use it for sandwiches, hamburgers, hotdogs and even pizza crust. (Not my favorite pizza crust, but passable if you add Romano cheese to the batter.) It's soft and flexible and has a good taste. My son and I are on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), so we use almond or coconut flour, but I'm sure it would work fine with a gluten free flour. I would guess that you wouldn't even need xanthan gum.

Soft Flat Bread

4 Egg Whites

2 Egg Yolks

1/2 C Almond Flour (or 2 Tbs Coconut Flour)

1 tsp. honey

1 tsp. butter

dash of salt

Beat egg whites until almost forming stiff peaks. Beat egg yolks with honey, butter and salt. Add yolk mixture to egg whites, sprinkle on flour. Stir gently until well-blended. Spread on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper to make a 12" x 12" square (or 14" square if using extra large eggs). It will be half an inch thick or less. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Slide bread, parchment paper and all, off cookie sheet and onto cooling rack immediately after getting out of the oven. Gently peel paper off as soon as it is cool enough to handle.

You can also make individual "buns" by making little 4" circles with the batter and baking as above. It's nice to have something that looks more like a hamburger bun, but they do flatten out a little. All my kids, even the 2 that aren't gluten free like these.

Good luck!

I cannot wait to try this recipe. I bake with both almond and coconut flour. Why is it a 1/2 c. of almond flour but, only 2T or coconut flour?

Thanks-

I am to lazy to try doing breads my self. I either buy ready loafs online from Katz Gluten Free.

recently,though we were given a demo at our Support Group meeting of Bready company. They will sell bread makers along with ready bread mixes. We tried it than and there. The bread tasted yummy and it sounded E-Z as pie to bake!

take a look at their demo online at my bready demo!

Coconut flour "sucks" up moisture like crazy because it's so high in fiber. You always use less of it in a recipe.

The Bready Machine: While I think this is a nifty gadget, one thing I don't care for is you will be held hostage to buying only their mixes. You can not use this with other mixes or make your own bread.Also the cost of the mixes could go sky high in price, no one knows. I'm a gadget person but for that much money I would think twice. I suggest a good bread machine like the zoirushi that one could make many things ......

Just my opinion but I hear the bread in the bready is very tasty...tempting but a no for me. Maybe the price will come down in the near future.

Have you tried Chex cereals? Rice, Corn, Honey Nut and Cinnamon are all gluten-free and kid friendly. The flatbread recipe above is the best bread for sandwiches that I've hdd since being gluten-free, but it's not great just plain. The Ener-G breads are yucky, but the Lite Tapioca is pretty good for things like french toast and grilled sandwiches. Do you know about the super easy peanut butter cookie recipe? (1 C peanut butter, 1 C sugar, 1 egg, mix together, drop onto cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10 minutes.) Good luck! It takes a while to get used to, but you'll get the hang of it soon.

I'm going to try this tomorrow...but can you use rice flour? And if so, how much?

I haven't made it with rice flour, but I think it would work fine. I'd use the same amount as almond flour. Let us know if it works!

I just posted a new thread about a bread I made last night. It's Gluten Free Pantry French Bread and Pizza crust mix. It really works like a nice white bread. I had a sandwich today and it didn't fall apart. I love it!!!
