Does anyone have a good sandwich type bread recipe (not a sweet bread like banana or pumpkin) that doesn't use yeast? I'm a little intimidated by the whole yeast thing!

How about starting with a gluten-free bread mix to get a feel for it? It might be easier for you. Gluten Free Pantry has a sandwich bread that's not bad and King Arthur Flour has a bread mix, too.

Edit: I know there are others, too, like Bob's Red Mill but some people don't care for the bean flour in it.

Here's one I just found, it's for a flat bread. I was actually looking for one that's very similar on the same website that I'd found a little while back, but this one has similar proportions. The other one I found used 1 cup of rice flour (I use a combo of brown and white rice flour), and 1/2 cup corn (or other) starch. In place of baking powder, I used 1/2 t baking soda and 2 t rice vinegar as I'm avoiding baking powder. It worked fine!

As for a loaf pan bread without yeast, I haven't gotten there yet, but this flat bread is pretty good!

I just thought of another recipe for Yeast-Free Sandwich Bread by Jules Shepard. I've never tried it but it sounds good although it does contain several ingredients you may or may not have. Is this what you might have had in mind?

It is - I'm thinking something that relies on baking soda or powder for the "lift" rather than yeast. I don't know why I'm so chicken about the whole yeast thing ... I think part of it is b/c gluten free ingredients are so expensive I worry more about cooking disasters.

That particular recipe contains both baking powder and baking soda...along with a bunch of ingredients you may or may not want to buy especially not knowing if you'll really like the bread.

Do you have a stand mixer? I don't think I could bake gluten-free yeast bread without mine. Really, yeast is nothing to be feared (spoken by someone who's baked a few bricks) laugh.gif I still think your best bet is to buy a mix as it includes all the flours/starches and packet of yeast). The Gluten-Free Pantry sandwich bread mix, for example, isn't expensive compared to buying a bunch of flours and starches.

Lisa Lundy has roll recipes in her book that call for baking powder instead of yeast. There is one that we really like. I just looked and I didn't see any loaf recipes however. The book has a really long title -- The Super Allergy Girl Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Nut-Free Allergy & Celiac Cookbook From a Mother Who Knows. She has some different recipes because of all the restrictions she cooks with, but the ones I have tried work and taste good.

Does anyone have a good sandwich type bread recipe (not a sweet bread like banana or pumpkin) that doesn't use yeast? I'm a little intimidated by the whole yeast thing!

The only baking powder I know of which can provide enough rise in gluten-free bread is one based on Sodium Acid pyrophosphate. One such baking powder is the one from Bob's Red Mill. This type waits for the dough to get hot in the oven, so it won't fizzle out on you like the typical kind. Rumford's will essentially use up all it's fizz in the mixing bowl, so you won't get a full rise in the oven.

However, as was stated in an earlier post, there's no need to feel intimidated by yeast. And all the regular brands of baking yeast I've seen are gluten-free anyway, so you do not need to buy something special or expensive. Truly, this would yield a bread more like the sandwich type you're looking for, than any bread leavened with baking powder I know of. Both in flavor and texture.

Incidentally, if you're uneasy about baking bread altogether, I suppose you could try pancakes as a sandwich bread. Just don't make them sweet, or cinnamon flavored, etc. You won't need to add any milk, fat or oil either. No xanthan required, although a tiny bit may work. The amount of xanthan called for in most breads would get you a very gooey mess! Essentially just flour, baking powder, and water is all you'd need (ok, probably some salt too). I suppose you could even add some yeast to make the flavor more like sandwich bread too. Also, some flours which wouldn't ordinarily make a good pancake because it'd turn out to tough, would actually make a good "sandwich pancake", as it would hold together better. Not sure if egg would help, but since I don't use egg in pancakes (or anything else), I know it'd work without that too. If the shape is important to you, perhaps a rectangular (or other) "egg ring" would constrain the batter to the shape you desire. This certainly wouldn't have the structure of a yeast-risen bread, but it would be relatively quick and easy.

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
