Thank you for those tips! I had checked the Amazon reviews but it mostly is coming down to what I can afford. I was thinking eBay or Craigslist as well - so your comment on cross-contamination was good timing ;-).

I must say I got a little carried away, engrossed in karina's comments to her post. I think I just lost 20 minutes into blog nowhere land!!! Must step away from the computer immediately...

p.s. mmmmmmm --- herb bread. a crusty olive loaf and I will be nearing nirvana.

/first-loaf-in-my-gluten-free-bread.R>html

There are a lot of comments/tips by others with the same machine towards the bottom, including one from me. Re-reading the blog she said it made 10 slices - my last loaf I got 15(gotta use a good bread knife)
I use Bob's Red Mills Homemade Wonderful Bread Mix. I've had a couple of loafs "collapse" but it was on high humidity days. I live in Oregon so when do we not have high humidity - lol
I love my machine, and this is coming from someone that a year ago cooked everything out of boxes. I've been thinking of how to vary the bread lately to mix things up a little - hmmm, herb bread

Check Amazon's reviews on the different machines, I've found people will put honest reviews of their stuff - good/bad/indifference.

And to the person with a used machine - I'd worry about cross-contamination. I know on my machine where the post for the paddle is I can not get everything cleaned out and inside the paddle, dough always gets stuck in there. Maybe get a new pan/paddle...

I crave a breadmaker! It sounds indulgent. For those of you that have one with a GF setting, what model is it? And does it meet your needs?

I found an older model Toastmaster bread maker on ebay for about $30 (made before the days of the gluten free setting) and the bread mix from Pamela's Products comes out perfectly every time! It's especially good with some cinnamon sprinkled in during the mixing stages.

ARTISANAL SORGHUM BREAD

Some recipes are merely a list of ingredients, a guideline for what to try. But I have to say — as is true for most baking — the techniques and the order in which you use these ingredients really matters here.

The Chef told me recently that one of his favorite head chefs, when he was training long ago, said this, “Try a recipe exactly the way it is written, once. That way, when you adapt it for yourself, you will always have a memory of what worked for you.” I recommend the same for this bread. Then, go wild.

2 cups sweet white sorghum flour
½ cup potato starch
½ cup sweet white rice flour
1 ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 packet active dry yeast (.28 ounces or 8 grams)
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 eggs
½ cup warm club soda (or as much as is needed to wet the bread)

Preheat the oven to 200°. Let it come to temperature.

Put all the dry ingredients into the bowl of your stand mixer. Turn on the mixer and combine the flours and other dry ingredients well. Turn it off.

Add the white wine vinegar and keep the machine running. Add the eggs, one at a time, and allow the mixer to beat them into the dry ingredients, on low speed. After you have added all the eggs, pour in the club soda, in a slow drizzle. Pour in only as much as is needed to wet all the ingredients completely and combine this into a dough.

Turn the oven off, immediately.

Attach the dough hook to the mixer and stir the dough on medium speed for three to four minutes. This will give the dough a chance to cohere more evenly. It will also whip air into the dough, which will cut the usual density of gluten-free bread. After those three to four minutes, turn off the mixer and transfer the dough to an oiled bowl.

Put the bowl into the oven, which will be warm, but not actively heating. Allow it to stay in there for forty-five minutes. It will not have risen much, at this point. Just a bit. It’s gluten-free, after all. There is no gluten to push along that rising. Accept that.

Take the bowl out of the oven and put it on the stovetop. Turn the oven up to 500°. Put a cast-iron pot, large enough to hold the bread, into the oven. A cast-iron dutch oven with an enamel surface is probably ideal. But any large pot or pan will do, as long as it has a lid. Leave the dutch oven in the 500° heat for half an hour. Meanwhile, the dough will be doing its small rising on the stove.
After half an hour, take the dutch oven out of the oven, carefully. Without worrying too much about the perfect shape, transfer the wet dough into the hot dutch oven. Put the lid on and push the dutch oven back into the oven, immediately.

Set your timer for thirty minutes. Do not turn down the heat. Allow the bread to cook in there, with the lid on, for the entire thirty minutes. By the end, it will really smell like fresh-baked bread. Take the pot out of the oven, take the lid off the pot, and voilå — a lumpy, wonderfully crusted loaf of gluten-free bread. Allow it to cool for ten minutes, then cut right into it.

(It really doesn’t hold up that well overnight. Eat as much as you want, just after baking. Slice up the rest immediately and put it in the freezer for another day.)

You can also use this dough and technique for any number of variations. For olive bread, put ½ cup chopped kalamata olives into the dough. For rosemary bread, add one tablespoon of chopped fresh rosemary into the dough, the sprinkle thick crystals of sea salt on the top of the bread before baking. Be creative and do what you can.

Serves six.

Try to find a recipe for bread that has Sorghum. It is by far the best flour to add. You can find it in Indian markets under the name of Bajri or Jowar they will say that it is corn flour but corn flour itself is something completely different. I will see if I can find a recipe for you.

I am still working on finding the right recipe for a gf bread. I found one that tastes fantastic the first day. Then it begins to taste like other GF breads after that. Not quite as bad, but you can tell it is not a regular bread. The way I look at it is it is the best I have found so far, but I will keep looking. In the meantime, it will help curb my bread cravings if I am having them. I am finding it hard to justify around 200 calories per slice of bread. So not worth it.

Well the bread is awful.

Made some oat-bread - without yeast - which I suppose wasn't too bad

The cheese & onion bread was ghastly

They are so heavy

My fiance is going to have a go this week whilst I am not there

Going to get some spelt flour to make some of that to see if it is any better.

OK, you still want GF oats because oats are grown in old wheat fields, or next to a wheat field and/or ground in the same mill as wheat so there will be cross contamination with wheat, unless certified gluten free. I'm just trying to save you some suffering.

Make sure the oats for your oat loaf are Certified Gluten Free. Otherwise you're cross contaminating yourself.

My breadmaker manual has a gluten free section too.

Am going to give the oat bread a go tomorrow

Then I want to do cheese & onion bread and raisin & cinnamon bread - both to toast of course!

I agree about the bread. I just haven't eaten it. Trying to save up fror a bread machine. I didn't know some came with a gluten free selection. Any suggestions on which bread maker I should buy all?

p.s. I had trader joe waffle last night and loved it. It is so nice to pop something in the toaster and enjoy it.

I make my bread using Bob's Red Mill Homemade Wonderful Brread mix.
I know others use Pamela's bread mix and swear by it.

I use my breadmaker for the whole thing but mine has a GF setting. If your breadmaker doesn't have a GF setting let it rise once, with 2 risings I've heard is when you get the brick loaf.

No, I have not tried making my own bread yet. I do want to because I do not like the gluten-free bread that I can buy. I do like the gluten-free frozen waffles. I cannot remember the brand names but I have boughted two different brand names and really, really like them. I think Trader Joe's has a bread mix. I want to try it. I like eating a lot of brown
rice instead of bread. Please let us know how your bread turns out.
GOD BLESS!

I am wheat-intolerant

Have just started to try out the shop-bought gluten & wheat-free bread available and it is disgusting.

I really really miss granary bread.

Going to try making my own in my breadmaker

Anyone tried this and got really good results?

I really want to use the breadmaker to mix the dough then will bake the bread in the normal oven
