My Bread Machine

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got a bread machine for Christmas and now I'm wondering if I should return it cause I can't for the life of me get a descent loaf of bread out of it.

The recipe I'm using is in the 125 best gluten free book by Donna Washburn and Heather Butt. They say to put it at 2 hour basic rapid cycle. Well my bread machine has like 3 settings, 70 min rapid cycle which it says that only thier recipe works with it and two other ones, 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 hours or something.

The bread machine is a black and decker all-in-one and from what I'm reading I might as well boot it down the road. I bought it to avoid mixing and rising and it makes absolutely no sense to have one if you have to mix it and rise it outside of the machine. Is there an easy bread recipe? When I try to make it in the machine it turns out much like a bowling ball. As well, its expensive blowing recipes like this.

Honestly, if I can't make it in a bread machine then I'll probably go without bread period as my life of preparing food is a full time job being celiac as it is.

Nathan,

Well, I'll be honest and say that I have never had better luck than when I make my bread by hand. For me it seems to take less time as well, I can mix, rise and bake of a loaf in 2 hours and some of the machines take more than a few hours to get the job done.

But, don't take my honesty as a "give it up" on the contrary, there are lots and lots of folks on this board who swear by their machines and I am sure that they can either give you some advice, or give you a recipe to try.

If you just got the machine for Christmas, give it another try after you get some tips from the people here, it would be a shame to have to give up bread and a great gift.

Take Care!

Does anyone have a recipe or a way that I can use my bread machine?

Nathan:

Check your grocery store for "Bob's Red Mill" gluten-free bread Mix, it should be in the health food section with the gluten-free flours. Here it runs over $5 a bag.

I hope you are able to enjoy some bread soon! :)

We purchased a Zojirushi BBCC-X20 bread machine recently, and it turns out a good loaf of bread. It makes it in a rectangle - just like the store! (Gluten Free Pantry Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix is our favorite so far). I got the recommendation on machine from this web site. Hope this helps you. Good luck.

I make two loaves of bread in my bread machine every week. It works fine but please note "DO NOT FOLLOW MANUFACTURERS DIRECTIONS ON BREAD MACHINE". Any of Bette Hagman's recipies work well, however, use your bread machine a little differently. Gluten free bread rises the first time great, gets punched down and never rises to the same extent again. It also is a little heavier for the poor machine to mix. Try the following: (a) remove bread pan from machine (B) start bread machine empty on basic cycle. ©premix wets of recipe put in bottom of pan you removed from bread machine.(d) premix drys, put on top of wets in same pan.(e)insert pan into bread machine when it stops for the first rest cycle.(this will not hurt bread machine - I spoke to manufacturer).

This way the bread gets one 20 minute mix, one hour rise, one hour bake. Works great. If your loaves are flat and not nice and roundy on top like wheat bread try decreasing water by one tablespoon and increasing oil by one tablespoon. I also find for a two pound loaf, I am using 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, 2 1/2 teaspoons of xanthum. These ratios are important for the proper chemistry like reaction. The total weight of my liquids (including eggs and sugar) equals 85% of the weight of my flour mixture. This is also important. Good Luck!

The Zojirushi is the best for gluten-free bread that I have found. For gluten-free bread, you really need 2 paddles -- most bread machines just have one.

I use gluten-free Pantry Favorite sandwich bread.

If you don't feel like baking your own, Kinnikinnick (www.kinnikinnick.com) has some very good ready made bread. They'll ship to you from Canada. (It is the only ready made gluten-free bread that I will eat). They have several flavors and all are good.

Good luck.

Donna, what type of bread machine do you have? Am thinking about getting one and thought your method sounded good. So far, I haven't had much luck in making a good loaf of bread in the oven. Has anyone tried the Amranth Bread recipe suggested by Karen Robertson in her bread class? Jo Ann

    • I didn't mean my world fell apart because of celiac but because of something else. Finding out about celiac disease actually gave me hope.
    • @PosterboyOne thing is though I never get heartburn. And this only happens when I've consumed something for consecutive days, like I had the bananas and too many nuts. But if PH has something to do with it then maybe when I'm eating more vegetables and broth that's why I usually feel much better, it's more alkaline. On a ph urine test whenever I'm feeling like this I ALWAYS have a reading towards the acidic part. When I feel better it always goes towards the alkaline level and usually in the ideal level. Part of it started when I was under high stress in the first place. A few years ago. I couldn't eat as much/well because I was very worried about things. The realization about celiac came later but basically my world fell apart and I've fought but never felt really okay again. Then at the worst before I knew about celiac disease I was vomitting for days. Now I can eat many more foods but it's still very touchy if I don't strictly eat vegetables, broth, lots of water and small amounts of fats and protein. I'm scared to take anything artificial. I've only recently been able to take very small amounts of probiotics. Is there no way to repair your stomach acid without taking pills? Would going on a strict alkaline diet help?  I read everything you wrote except the link which I don't know if I can concentrate right now. Thank you.
    • I have seen this a few times....run a gluten free bakery....one of my previous customers has the disease, but he gawks at my prices and then goes eats from other stores and consumes gluten products.....I tried offering freebies left over items to get him to switch....been watching him degrade over the past 3 years. He now walks...odd like Frankenstein with locked knees and a wobble and seems be much less active not appearing at this job few days a month now....I do worry about these people. Celiac effects everyone different some violently, others do not see the damage or have grown so use to the issues that they consider them normal. It is a sad thing to see. I have seen improvement in my own body following a strict diet and regime and see major consequences when I trip ......I can not imagine anyone cheating but my reactions are bad with many side effects. Celiac being a AI disease can cause other secondary complications I am all to aware of if  you cheat, mess up.
    • I don't know, it's probably best described as a lot of bile, sometimes yellow, sometimes green (sorry) and a lot of mucus (sorry_) and when I eventually throw it up  (if it gets to that point) it's burning in my throat, so I equate it with acid. Also because of the term "antacid" I think of it as a lot of acid but I guess it's a lot of bile, mucus and I thought the extra stomach acid produced dealing with whatever food I ate. I've done the wrong thing though because now I'm in the pain I was dreading, with swollen eyes and everything and really bad depression now and hopelessness. I keep feeling like it's all futile and too late. That however hard I try I can't figure everything out in time to be well.
