Need Good Bread Mix

8 posts in this topic

Since I sub for a single class at a local college I don't work often, but today is one of my lucky days I get to spend sharing my wealth of knowledge. Okay, it isn't that illustrious, I actually just sit at a desk reading my ebooks and waiting for people to have questions. Anyway, in the past I've always brought a sandwich for lunch with some fruit or something. It's always just the right thing to get me through my day and to dinner without feeling like I may gnaw off my arm before I go home.

Today, instead of a sandwich I am enjoying a salad and chocolate tapioca pudding. (which is divine by the way) Why? Because yesterday I wanted a sandwich for lunch and didn't consider the fact that I was using my last two slices of bread. All of the local stores that carry Udi's close at midnight or earlier and I didn't realize until about 15 minutes past midnight that I have no bread in the house. When I got to the closest 24 hour store the only bread they had was $7 and I almost died right there in the aisle. Instead I picked up a mix which turned out to be awful. (Okay, not totally inedible but certainly not anything I can make a sandwich with.)

The bread I got and liked was Udi's whole grain and I am wondering what mixes anyone could recommend that would be similar in texture and taste. I do intend to learn to make bread without a mix but for now I want to see what sorts of things I like before I start experimenting. Any suggestions for what to try would be greatly appreciated.

I tried a bunch of gluten-free bread mixes. My favorites were Bob's Red Mill Wonderful Bread and Hearty Whole Grain mixes. The Hearty Whole Grain is good enough that "glutenoids" will eat it. Unfortunately, while I really like the flavor I think the texture is kind of crumbly for sandwiches. I would usually bring a slice of bread and a hunk of cheese packed separately. I haven't found a mix that makes bread that holds together for sandwiches the way Udi's does.

My family really likes Pamela's bread mix. It is wonderful and just right for sandwiches, imo. I have a pan in the oven as we speak.

Croissants!?! I never imagined I'd have one again, breakfast sandwiches were the farthest thing from my mind until 10 seconds ago.

Thanks for the tips on what everyone likes. It's all well and good to read what I can find on the manufacturer websites but they're only gonna say what they need to say to sell me bread mix. I much prefer to trust the opinions of people who aren't after my money.

For a quick, fresh, homemade gluten free bun, nothing beats a customized, "bun-'n-a-cup" baked in the microwave in a small bowl, ramekin, or soup cup, made out of ingredients you chose yourself.

I have been meaning to try this with the Pamela's mix, and just made one that worked beautifully.

Pamela Bun- in-a- Cup

use a scant 1/2 cup of Pamela's gluten-free Pancake Mix

dry:

a pinch of baking soda

a wee pinch of cream of tartar

a scant sprinkle of salt

any spices or flavorings you would like, such as cumin, cinnamon, Chinese 5 spice, anise, sesame, or poppyseed, cocoa powder or grated citrus peel, optional.

__

wet:

in a bowl put:

about a teaspoon of olive oil to a tablespoon, depending on taste and how moist/dry you prefer

1/2 teaspoon of pure apple cider vinegar

a tiny glop of molasses, optional

honey to taste, or any other sweetener, about a half teaspoon, optional

1 egg

beat the wet ingredients together

Add the dry Pamela's mixture to it, then add more water and mix as needed to get a wet dough, this will depend on the size of the egg, about 1 to 2 tablespoons water.

place the dough in a small, lightly oiled ramekin, miniature single serving casserole dish, large flat soup mug or cereal bowl.

microwave for 1 minute on high. Test for doneness by pressing with finger, should be springy, then take a table knife and stick it in, seeing that when the knife is still dry. Some deep round bowls take longer. Keep microwaving in 15 second increments until done.

Makes 1 bun

_____

note: altho the Pamela's mixes already do have leavening, adding a tiny bit more helps this recipe as it cooks so quickly.

    • My RA blood test was negative and my dsDNA was negative too.  I think that the dsDNA is the lupus test.  I think.  I haven't been referred to a rheumatologist.   
    • Some people will always test negative on the blood test, odd and rare but it happens. You also have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the antibodies to show up for it in the test for at least 12 weeks. You can follow up with a endoscope and biopsy, if your having gut issues this might be a great idea to rule out other issues. I might also suggest a colonoscopy to rule out Ulcerative Colitis or other digestive issues there. Other thoughts you could have SIBO or NCGS. NCGS  can not be diagnosed...heck I was writing up a bit of a summary page for someone else about it might as well make use of the partially filled out notepad here.  Forgive any typos or misinformation still working it out for various sources. " 1. Acne, Flushed Skin, or Rashes
      Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity can manifest itself as a chronic skin condition such as a rash, acne, or red/flushedcheeks, but these conditions could also be hormonal. On the other hand Celiac disease also has Dermatitis herpetiformic or DH, which is characterized by rashes and chronically itchy, elbows, knees, buttons, and back. 2. Distended Stomach or Bloating
      A distended or bloated stomach applies especially after gluten consumption and is a fairly clear sign of gluten sensitivity. A distended stomach is also characteristic of malnutrition as well of celiac disease. 3. Diarrhea, Gas, or Constipation
      These three  symptoms can simultaneously occur after eating gluten and may be a sign of intolerance because,especially the former, is a way for the body to expel harmful allergens or other substances. Often, diarrhea(frequent loose or liquid stools) occurs with gas, resulting in a “feeling of a full or tight abdomen” as put by the NFCA. Constipation, essentially the antithesis of diarrhea, is also a symptom of non-celiac gluten sensitivity and is characterized by infrequent, hard, painful bowel movements from lack of physical activity or poor diet,namely a diet high in refined carbs rich in gluten. This can be made worse if one has a magnesium deficiency, does not get though hard fiber, or drink enough water. All of which can be made worse by the feeling of bloat/gas making one feel too full to need to drink or eat high fiber foods. 4. Brain Fog or Migraines
      Brain fog is a major characteristic of non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Chronic or debilitating migraines goes hand in hand with the idea of brain fog and results in depression or irritability. These again can be made worse by deficiencies, like B-vitamins. 5. Joint Pain or Numbness in Extremities
      Tingling, pain, or numbness in the joints or extremities is abnormal and should be a clear sign of a health problem like gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Colloquially, this tingling is described as “pins and needles” or a limbbeing “asleep.” If this happens frequently for no apparent reason, it could be a sign of gluten intolerance. Again these can help be alleviated and be made worse by deficiencies in Magnesium, B-vitamins
      Total elimination of the gluten protein for an extended period of time, say two weeks or a month, is the only true way to identify if these symptoms are linked to gluten intolerance, and even then, it would not be certain. If the protein is eliminated and any of the above symptoms dissipate, then it should be noted that gluten intolerance may be an issue, but be sure to consult a professional for solid proof."  
    • I have a friend who reacts to raw oranges, apples, and bananas. Funny thing is they are fine with cooked foods using them and pasturized orange juice. Some odd food allergy that gets broken down with heat. SIDE NOTE. I just reintroduced iceberg lettuce, and romaine after not having any in 4 months......I HAVE A NEW INTOLERANCE. even just plain iceberg organic, pieces from the core without chemicals make me horrible sick and vomiting....they used to be fine....WTF?! Oh well spinach is fine and the canned stuff is cheaper and more nutrient dense....but really WTF?! Yeah I tried 2 brands and even the organic one.
    • I had to research today from last night's reaction. Never thought oj would be  a problem. I see from past posts some have had concerns about orange juice . I've joined the club. Myself and DS are reacting to something in pure premium. Just wanted to share info I found in case one day someone else has this experience. While I can't say it is gluten cc we also are corn and milk free, just know we are having a reaction and we just opened a new pure premium that we both drank from. It is possible I'm sensitive to chemicals the flavors / scent added after processing possible culprit. Sad as oj has the vitamin c good for immune system. Which is disheartening if DS is as sensitive as mom didn't appear to be until now. I'm not sure but felt the need to put this out there for those concerned with labeling and who are sensitive. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/29/100-percent-orange-juice-artificial_n_913395.html http://gizmodo.com/5825909/orange-juice-is-artificially-flavored-to-taste-like-oranges     Edit: one more link http://www.foodrenegade.com/secret-ingredient-your-orange-juice/ Maybe today is a coffee day? 
    • Hi all, first time posting here. After years of feeling chronically exhausted, depressed, irritable, bloated (the list goes on and on...) and with a family history of autoimmune disorders, I finally convinced my doctor to test for Celiac and autoimmune disorders. All my results came back negative.  My celiac results were as follows   TTG IgA  <1.2 unit/mL reference range: <4.0 (negative)   Gliadin IgA (Deam) < 10.0 units reference range: < 20.0 units (negative)   Gliadin IgG (Deam) < 10.0 units reference range: < 20.0 units (negative)   Should I have my total IgA checked to rule out a false negative? Or is Celiac ruled out since all three tests came back negative? I don't see my doctor again for another two weeks to go over the results. I was convinced that I would test positive but since I did not, I want to make sure that I know if there is any other tests I should ask my for. Thanks everyone! Tiffany
