Bette Hagman Recipe

8 posts in this topic

Hello, I searched the board and can't find anything but Bette Hagman's flour mix of tapioca,rice, and potato flour. I have read that many people enjoy her bread, and I don't have the money to go buy her book, so I was wondering if anyone could post her bread recipe for sandwiches? Or PM me it if thats better...I'd really appreciate it!

Her mix is 2 parts rice flour, 2/3 part potato flour and 1/3 part tapioca flour.

Ex.

2 cups rice flour

2/3 cup potato flour

1/3 cup tapioca flour

Sift together several times to combine well.

I use this for many things, but I'm pretty happy with quinoa flour lately and am going to try alternate mixtures with that. It just seems finer than the rice (and has a great deal more nutrients!) Anyone else use quinoa flour?

which bread recipe were you looking for?? i have her book, and there are tons of bread recipes in it. are you using a breadmaker or doing it by hand?

here is one that sounds good ( i havnt tried it yet)

fat-free french bread

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour mix

2 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons quick rising yeast

1 teaspoon vineager or dough enhancer

2 egg whites ( room temp)

1 1/2 cups warm water

prepare french bread pan by spraying with vegtable oil, or curve a doubled peice of heavy foil about the length of your cookie sheet to form a mold and spray this.

In the bowl of your mixer, combine the flour mix, xanthan gum, sugar, salt and yeast. Whisk together to blend well. add the vineager, egg whites and water. beat at med. speed for 3 minutes. spoon the dough in the mold to almost full length. smooth the top. cover and let rise for 15 minutes. preheat oven to 400.

bake 1 hour. turn oven to 350 and bake 15 minutes longer. to eat it hot and crusty, tear it apart. it won't cut until it's cooled.the bread keeps for several days, but the crust gets more tender with time.

i hope that helps. let me know if you had a certian kind of bread in mind...and i'll give you that recipe if i have it!

Thanks Lillie for the recipe! I'll have to try that one too. I got a recipe from somebody that is Bette's and its called featherlight bread. I noticed it calls for both egg replacer and eggs, anyone know why this would be? I don't want to have to spend more money on egg replacer. And it calls for unflavored gelatin which I haven't seen in any other recipes...anyone know if eliminating this will significantly change the recipe? Thanks

Hi! We have a couple Bette Hagman cookbooks, and the first (and only) bread my boys like so far is the Featherlight bread. In her books, it says that she uses the Egg Replacer as an extra leavening ingredient, and it is "always optional unless this is the only leavening used in a recipe." From the Egg Replacer box from Ener-G Foods, it says, "...[it] mimics what eggs do in a baking recipe." I found ours at a local health food store for about $6, which is cheaper than buying online once you factor in shipping. The 16 oz box has lasted me for at least 2 months, and I'm not through it yet! And I do a good deal of baking.

Also, about the gelatin--here's what it says in Ms. Hagman's cookbook. "Gelatin is not necessary and can be eliminated if you have a religious or dietary restriction against it. I suggest it because it adds protein, and yeast combines with it to give elasticity to the bread."

Hope this helps a little. And by the way, my boys do like several of the items in The Gluten-free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy...especially the quick mixes for gluten-free "bisquik"; gluten-free cream of mushroom, etc. soup; the cake mixes; and the pizza crusts.

Blessings,

Tori

Thanks Tori! That really does help, it sounds like they are not totally necessary. I may opt not to use them for money's sake. When you made the featherlight bread, did its taste and texture stay the same for more than one day? The only gluten free bread I made was banana bread a few weeks ago, it tasted great fresh out of the oven, but terrible the next day...thanks again

Glad to be of assistance! Honestly, I get so much info and support off this board, it's nice to be a help to somebody else. LOL Anyway...when I make the featherlight bread, it keeps its texture and flavor for probably three days. After that it starts to get a little stiff, and I usually end up trying to freeze some, or use it for garlic toast or toasted cheese (the cheese helps cement it together). It does have a tendency to crumble a bit, (at least when I make it, and I'm new at bread-baking! lol ) but when it does, we try to make the best of it. My boys are young--7, 3, and 2--so when I say "let's make inside out sandwiches!" (by wrapping the cheese and meat around the bread chunks that are left) they think it's a cool new concoction. Thank God for the adaptability of kids!

    • Get the full celiac blood test.. It includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA It's just a blood test, no reason not to do it. You have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks for the test to not show a false negative. One slice of bread per day is enough. A positive on any one test is supposed to lead to an endoscopy to confirm celiac. Since you're already getting an endoscopy you're good to go there. There are several things you could have, digestion-wise, so I'd do the tests. Celiac requires 100% compliance to the diet, no cheating, so it's good to test for it.
    • Where are you? Nuts are gluten free by nature, some companies might use contaminated seasonings, or make them in a facility that processes trail mix or something with gluten in it. This is where your concern lies, A nut only company should be safe, unseasoned nuts are your best bet, and yest if you can get them in the shell then wash them off really well before shelling and eating them your pretty darn safe with them. Raw walnuts in shell are safe, they normally do not add anything them to them, in case they might have gotten dusted with something just rinse them off before shelling them, I really love taking the walnuts afterward and putting them in a pan on low heat til they start to brown and lightly roast, they are great this way. I also used to take raw walnuts and candy them. Might post that recipe since I can no longer eat them and do not sell them anymore. I have a bit of a issue getting nuts myself by I am allergic to peanuts (not really a nut but a legume). SO for me it is really tricky finding peanut and gluten free nuts lol. I found 3 companies I order from, 1 for organic almonds, 1 for my own almonds, and one that sales walnuts and pistachios only. Most people here just order from Nuts.com but they might not ship to you at a good price. Tried amazon?
    • There aren't any gluten free nut brand in my country. Are nuts with shells like peanuts,walnuts sold in stores without package gluten free? Do they add anything else to them? 
    • Supplementation with Natural Vitality Stress & Energy, will help a lot it is a sublingual B-vitamin pretty much. I use it with the Neurological support from the same company and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. These along with a diet in foods that help with mood like snacking on cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, etc. Takes the edge off of everything and I do not worry but just roll with life. Here are some helpful links https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ A set of microwave cookware from nordicware will make the transition and cooking some foods super simple and cheap, steam trays, rice cooker, grill plates, omelette makes etc, also great for trips. Butcher paper/Freezer paper can make a nice safe cook and eating surface and makes clean up a breeze. Crockpot meals with a crockpot liner makes really easy soups, risotto, stews, pot roast, etc and the liner can make cleanup super simple just pull it out and toss it.    Eggs dishes like omelettes using the microwave cooker, scrambled egg dishes, are super simple and one of my go to meals I also so simple stir fry meals a lot. Saute in order of harder and seasoning veggies and meats first and finish off with a sauce/deglazing mix 10-20min meal. I have posted recipes for meals in the recipes sections. MY flat bread recipe seems to bit hit recently being cheap easy and very versatile in how you can make it.
    • Hey everyone... newbie here. I have a few questions but first my history: Dx with Hashimoto's in 2003. Had SEVERE adverse reaction to T4 no idea why but then switched to T3. But T4 opened a can of worms. Immediately after starting T4 had digestive issues. Aften a few years tried gluten free. No help but stayed on gluten-free diet. 2013 gave in to blt cravings and had wheat sandwiches everyday for a week. Woke up one morning with muscles so swollen or inflammed couldn't  get out of bed. No more gluten. Also had blood in stool. 2014 finally dx with pancreas insuffiency. Digestion improved and blood stopped but at same time also dx with colitis (i strongly doubt this dx and don't  take colitis drugs). A year later added cheese back into my diet. Bleeding came back. No more dairy now, blood gone. Now i might have gastritis and sibo. Endoscopy planned for October. 23andMe testing also shows a single mutation for celiac. If i just stay Gluten-free Casein-free does it really matter is i get a dx for celiac? Celiac disease and gluten intolerance... same thing? Is blood in stool common with celiac disease? Is colitis often a wrong dx for celiac disease. Can a biopsy dx celiac when already Gluten-free Casein-free?  Which end of the small intestines used for biopsy? Meaning, when doc looks at my stomach can he do small intestine biopsy or do i need a colonoscopy instead?
