I checked my breadmaker's manual and it said to bake gluten-free bread on the whole wheat setting. Works for me! It rises twice.

I have a breadmaker. I cannot find it right now though. Hmmmm. It is a Cuisinart Bread Machine purchased from Williams Sonoma. It has a Gluten Free Bread setting that I've used before.

According the the recipe booklet that came with it, I was to throw all the GF flours and wet ingredients into the bread pan and let it mix together in there (with a teeny-tiny blunted mixing blade at the bottom!) Well, it never worked if I followed the machine instructions.

So I started to mix all the ingredients in my counter top mixer and then I would place the batter/dough in the baking pan and turn it on. It would then bake normally and I got good results.

Also, this breadmaker has a crust setting for a lighter or darker crust. For the GF bread I always set it to the darkest setting and it came out very good. It takes a few minutes to throw it all together but the results do taste much better than any GF bread that I buy frozen from Whole Foods.

But, the bread has no preservatives in it, so if you know that you cannot finish the (small) loaf in about 3-4 days (kept in refrigerator), slice the loaf once it is done baking. Wrap it up tight in plastic wrap and freeze. Then you can pull out the slices one-at-a-time. It saves the whole loaf going bad so quickly. Freezing should keep it for about 2-3 weeks.

Hope you decide to get one! They do work, with a little help from the cook!

All the best,

I don't have a bread maker but from what I understand you can still mix the dough from scratch without using a packaged mix. I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about the 'instant' packages. Also, I've heard that gluten free 'doughs' are generally more of a batter texture, so I guess you'd need an actual loaf pan then... I make mine from scratch by hand but then I'm not trying to be gluten free so my bread has wheat and therefore is more doughy.

Does anyone have the new bread maker that has the gluten free settings?

Do you have to use Gluten Free mixes only or can I make bread from scratch?

What are the good brands to buy (of bread makers)?

What's everyone's advice?
