Bulk Bread Mix That Works Well In A Zojirushi

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So Udi's bread in my new area costs almost $7 a loaf (compared to $3.50 before) and I'm thinking about pulling out my Zojirushi because we eat 3-4 loafs a week and it is really adding up. Does anyone have suggestions for bulk mixes (or economical recipes) that work well in a Zojirushi bread machine? I've notice my Zojirushi behaves differently than my old Breadman - my Breadman did a great job with Bette Hagman's recipes but not so much with the Zojirushi.

I don't care for Pamela's and all of the single serve box mixes around here cost as much as a loaf of Udi's...I'd like to a bulk mix or recipe for sliced bread that is easy and tasty for $3-4 per loaf that is mostly rice or potato based. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Annalise Roberts has a cookbook of recipes specifically for the Zojirushi bread machine:

Gluten-Free Baking Classics For The Bread Machine.

You can probably find a used one on-line.

Many of her recipes also appear on www.foodphilosopher.com.

You can also try www.betterbatter.org, which has a ton of very good recipes, and they sell a very nice gluten-free flour mix that is less expensive than most, especially if you buy it in bulk (they will ship it to you in 5-pound boxes, which is very manageable, and they're easy to store).

I go back and forth between the betterbatter recipes and Annalise Roberts' recipes (sometimes I just use the betterbatter flour in the Annalise Roberts recipe!).

Really, the only thing the bread mixes add is salt,sugar and a yeast packet. That's very few ingredients, and not a lot of extra convenience for the high price of a specialty mix.

You can also save a lot of $ if you buy yeast in bulk, from Costco or Sam's Club, and just measure it out with a teaspoon. Those little packets literally triple or quadruple the price.

I didn't realize she had a cookbook for the Zojirushi - I'll check it out. I am rather busy these days and don't have access to a lot of gluten-free flours (I'm pretty remote and it's a trip to get them) so I am looking for something quasi pre-made - I didn't think about something with betterbatter. I have used it for several years and really like it.
