I've always love love loved Eleanor's Bake Shop and can't get enough cupcakes. Their bread though is absolutely amazing, but I am not going to drive 30 minutes for a loaf of bread no matter how good it is. So, bored and on facebook far past when I should be in bed and to my surprise I notice that they have posted a nice tutorial because they have begun selling their flour blend in their shop. I'm definitely going to head up soon for some flour, but thought that this might be a nice video for anyone having issues with bread. It's idiot proof enough even for me! Maybe I'll finally bake a bread product that turns out as something other than bricks I wouldn't dare use to poison my worst enemy or feed to the obnoxious dog next door that won't stop barking.

Hi Adalaide, do you know if a hand mixer would work to make this and do you know if she ships her flour? I have not attempted to make bread yet and think I might actually be able to make this. Maybe I will ask Santana for a stand mixer for Christmas.

Thanks for putting up the tutorial. It's what I need to bake things cuz I don't have the experience to tweak.

To the best of my knowledge, she just uses a flour blend like everyone else. I highly doubt they do any shipping, but I can ask when I stop in. It will probably be sometime next week.

I do have experience. I grew up baking bread literally every Saturday of my life until I was 9 and every other after that until I was 16. Still, gluten free bread just doesn't act like BREAD. I have a KitchenAid, I wouldn't live without it. I shared because I felt like the first time that bread is within my capabilities. Maybe, just maybe, I will be able to make something mildly edible.

Thank you, Adalaide and Karen. I will email her with my ?'s.

The video is interesting! I have never seen any baker just dip into the flour bag for gluten-free, usually the ingredients are weighed on a scale..the bread turned out nice..

For the true test I would have liked to have seen her slice the bread. I'd love to see the texture and how it holds together. When I make breads I like to slice a line all across the top slightly on the side so it rises better and looks so gorgeous and rustic. And European. :P

So, Adelaide, how DOES it taste? What is the texture like? Is it great toasted?

Surprised she does not weigh - weighing is far more accurate.

I've never had it toasted. The last time I had it was before I had a toaster and my toaster recently met a glorious demise. (My MIL moved it from my gluten-free counter to her gluten counter and while I'm quite sure it wasn't used she is obsessed with wiping things with her nasty sponge that sits on the back of the sink for 2-3 months at a time. The toaster met the concrete wall in the back yard, I am still nursing a hand injury. Who knew I could throw that far!) Anywho... It finds that perfect balance between soft and firm. I grew up making bread every week so I am used to a good, dense loaf and love it that way. I like bread with substance. It holds together as well as can be expected for sandwiches... so not at all. Although I'm sure it would do so toasted like all other bread does. It isn't far from an Udi's or Rudi's in texture to be perfectly honest but the taste is really great. I'll need her recipe for the honey oat bread.

As always, I enjoy your wit. ;)

I know what you mean about bread with substance - that is how I like mine, too, except for baguettes. Sounds like a winner considering it tastes so good. Hmmmm...I bet I would enjoy it, too. The honey oat sounds great. I've been doing a schwack of experimenting again and have a good honey oat bread recipe, though I'm sure hers will be just as good.

The most recent bread I made actually held together. Well. It didn't rip and tear and do the funky chicken when I spread thick gooey stuff on it. It tasted yeasty and had that oomph I've been searching for.

I'm wondering if toaster tossing could be an official celiac sport? Just thinking about it hitting the concrete feels good. I'd quite like to do that to DHs toaster. Not a fan of being in a mixed house :(

    • Celiac disease can be dormant for years til a strain/stress to the immune system makes it come out. Many of us have had this issues, your infection run in might have triggered the dormant genes for the disease if you had them. I would follow up with the testing, see about getting a full celiac blood panel if you can, you have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks daily prior to testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

        If not celiac it could be another food intolerance/sensitivity I suggest keeping a food diary and tracking what you eat, seasonings, how it is cooked etc. And how you feel later. Change up our diet more and look for patterns.  Here is stuff to read up on. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
    • Karen's point about parasites etc is a good one. They can cause a lot of symptoms similar to celiac /ncgs as you probably know.  At 11 I had my appendix removed following pain in the lower right side of my torso. On waking up the surgeon told me that it was actually ok, when I asked what caused the pain I think they said it was probably glandular - they didn't know. Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflammed tissues pressing on nerves. I would ask the Bolivian doctors if they can get any celiac blood testing done. The standard ttg may not be beyond their labs. can't hurt to ask? Give your diet my guess is you've had a lot of gluten for a long time. If its an issue for you expect a bumpy ride when removing it.  Best of luck!  
    • You can supplement if you want to.  IF you are low on iron or vitamin D - then some vitamins might be helpful.   The treatment for Celiac disease is a strict gluten free diet.  Some people need to cut out lactose for a few months, too.  The villi that are damaged in Celiac are the part that helps you digest lactose.  So, until they are healed, it might help to skip milk , cream, etc.     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-there-vitamins-created-specifically-for-nutrient-deficiencies-in-celiac-patients-2/
