How to Make Perfect Gluten Free Bread July 25, 2010

Posted by Melonie Gallegos in Dishing It.

I’ve tried them all. Gluten free bread from the frozen section, blah! tastes like packaging peanuts. The unfrozen “fresh” store variety, blah! it feels and tasted like a brick. The closest thing I’ve tasted to real bread in the gluten free variety is made at home. Here’s my toolbox and how easy it is to do.

1. You will need a bread maker. I picked up a Cuisinart bread maker at Overstock.com for under $90 bucks (model CBK-200). It has a gluten free feature built in but I do believe you must have this feature to accomplish the task. If you have a bread maker sitting in your closet or find one second hand go for it!

2. A box of gluten free bread mix. I’ve tried just a couple different brands and have not had one that isn’t good. The brand featured here, The GlutenFree Pantry Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix (22oz Box) turned out perfect. I even got the rest of the wheat consuming family to eat it. You can purchase it in bulk at a discount on Amazon.com (pack of 6 was about $28). Bob’s Red Mill is another good brand. You can also pick these up at specialty markets and in the baking or specialty aisles of some mainstream grocery stores.

3. Follow the instructions on your bread maker, typically the key is to put your wet ingredients in first, then your dry, and then the yeast. Set your maker to gluten free if available and go. You have to do nothing else. Seriously, in a few hours you will have a beautiful loaf of bread like the one shown below.

My favorite way to eat it, besides curing my sandwich craving, is toasted spread with butter and a drizzle of honey.
