Awesome Bread Machine!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just made my 1st loaf of gluten-free bread this weekend & it was FABULOUS!! :D I found out that my bread machine even has gluten-free recipes in it (added bonus) and it made a nice, large loaf of bread. I love Udi's but it's the smallest bread I've ever seen. I used Bob's Red Mill Homemade Wonderful bread mix & I love the way it turned out. Some of the slices of bread (and the ends) weren't all that pretty so I made bread crumbs out of those to use later. The bread machine I have is West Bend 41300 Hi-Rise model that I got from Bed, Bath & Beyond but there's a pretty good price on Amazon for it HERE. I will be making all my own bread from now on!! Yum yum yum!

i was just about to start a topic asking what a good bread maker is to invest in? I will check this one out for sure as I will be making my own from now on. Bread is way to small at a way to big of a price tag to not make my own!

Gluten-free bread has always been a challenge for a lot of us. I'm still experimenting to make a *perfect* loaf.

There have been some recent threads regarding bread machines. Near the upper right corner there is a google button...type in bread machines and I'll bet several will come up.

Bob's is the only bread mix I've tried so far. Anyone tried any other ones? I'm trying to decide which I like best so I can buy in bulk online & get a discount.

I've only tried Bob's (the not-so-wonderful homemade bread mix as well as the raisin bread). I've heard good things about Gluten Free Pantry and also the King Arthur Bread Mix. I bought a pkg. of King Arthur but haven't tried it yet. Thus far I prefer to playing around with my own flours/starches and experimenting with making my own bread from scratch.

Sylvia- sorry if you've posted this elsewhere, but have you come up with your own flour blend? Will you share, if so?

Lilu, there are as many flour blends as there are cookbook authors. Recently I've been using Jules Shepard's Free For All Cooking book and her all-purpose flour, which is already mixed. It's the first time I bought an already mixed flour. I think her flour is probably the same as her Nearly Normal Flour from her earlier cookbook. You can pull up her blog and she shares a lot of recipes. She's also active on Facebook

Another cookbook I like is Gluten-Free Baking Classics by Annalise Roberts. She also has a similarly titled book for bread machine recipes if you have one. From what I've tried so far, her recipes usually turn out well for me. I am hung up on bread so that's what I'm usually looking for in a cookbook.

Right now those are my go-to cookbooks and the ones I use the most.

King Arthur Flour also has an already mixed flour. I bought it but haven't used it yet nor have I tried their bread mix but have a package of it in my pantry. I'm not usually into bread mixes.

Hope this helps a bit. I know others have their own preferred flour mixes they make themselves and/or already mixed flours they buy.

Sylvia,

Thanks for the information. I signed up for Jules's News letter, and asked some questions on her blog. If she can help cut a recipe down to 4 rolls instead of large amount, I'm sold!

I don

Sylvia,

I don't need 16 Hamburger rolls at a time!

Did she send you a special introductory offer to try her flour with a couple of free e-books? If not, I'm sure you'll get one.

For the hamburger buns, I simply cut the recipe in half the first time I tried it and got 6 buns from it. I actually used a regular size spring-loaded ice cream scoop and a muffin top pan although I'm sure you could use a baking sheet. I put an ice cream scoop of dough in the muffin top pan, flattened and shaped it a bit. Made a bun the size I like it (not humongous). I found the recipe to be a bit wet so have been fiddling around with the ingredients.

Her pizza crust recipe is really good, too, and has been my go-to recipe lately. Since I prefer a slightly thinner crust, I use a 14" pizza pan instead of 12". Cute video on her blog about making it.
