I buy my Gluten free products from Gluten Free Palace and I remember coming across a recipe for gluten free bread on their website. They have other recipes as well, some of which I've tried out and liked a lot, so I think you should take a look at it. Browse through their products as well. You can order online, so need to worry about traveling.
I made my bread yesterday from the Gluten Free Bread Mix I told you about. The recipe makes 24 muffins. I bake them for 12 minutes at the temperature in the package instructions.
I have made this bread so many times, I don't read the instructions anymore and twice, including yesterday, I mixed it up and put it in the muffin tins to rise and then realized that I didn't get the yeast out of the box. Each time, I just dumped it all back in the mixing bowl and stirred in the yeast. Came out good both times. I don't think you can mess up making this bread.
LOL, thanks for the chuckles, that's one for the books for sure, Catastrofy.
Also thank you Litter Gitter for the site for gluten free sandwich bread mix.
I don't have a recipe, but I have a story! My father-in-law developed a condition for which he was told to avoid gluten. They were a farm family and my mother-in-law (the sweetest person I have ever known), always made her own bread, buns, etc., so she set out to make gluten free bread. She read all the labels and came up with her own recipe. It seems no-one told her that bread requires gluten to rise, so if you don't use it, you have to use more of the leavening agent.
Well! The test loaf of bread came out of the oven the same height it went in...about 3 inches high...and solid and heavy and looked like a hot rock! The funny part was that she decided to hide it because she was too embarrassed to show any one but me! She tossed it outside to the dog, who would eat anything! The dog sniffed it, picked it up and carried it down into the field and buried it! We had a good laugh and forgot about it...until a few weeks later, when one of the farmhands drove back to the house with a plow with a broken blade...carrying the funniest looking "rock" he had ever seen!
Annie, the web site for Gluten Free Pantry products is www.glutino.com
I found the favorite sandwich bread mix on the web site and the price is $3.99. The phone number is 1-800-291-8386. That's about what I pay for it at Wal-mart.
Thank each of you for your replies and help. I am in Canada, but will check Walmart's Store next time I am near one (over an hour away!). I did find some bread at a local health food store for just over $8.00 a loaf, so definitely will be trying to bake my own.
Thanks for the sight food.com. I'm off now to check it out.
For my bread, I use Gluten Free Pantry favorite sandwich bread mix. I get it from Wal-mart in the gluten free section. I prepare it and put it in muffin tins to rise. After cooking it, I freeze the muffins for later. When I want some bread, I take out a muffin and put it in the microwave for 20 seconds and it tastes just like fresh baked. Delicious!
I do miss hamburgers in the buns, however when we have hamburgers, I just have everything but the bun and eat my bread on the side. It's still good.
Udi's now has a gluten-free bun on the market in various areas of the U.S. Red Robin has started using them & hear tell they're listed now on their gluten-free menu in many locations.
Udi's or Rudi's breads are pretty good. Look in the frozen food section where the Gluten-free & other food allergen foods are in your grocery store. Might suggest you check out the forums celiac.com as they have recipes, tips on coping with celiac & many other forums that might interest you. Great group of folks who have a lot of experience, recipes & ideas.
Quite often folks with celiac or even gluten-intolerance develop issues with other foods (dairy, soy, etc.) & those forums have helped me so much over the past 2-3 years heal successfully, eat right & feel so kuch better. Good luck to you all & remember life is great even without gluten! :)
The other day I went to food.com and was looking for some new bread recipes. Go to the same website and click on the Recipes link and you'll find a separate category for gluten free recipes. There are a lot of different recipes for gluten free bread.
