Homemade Gluten Free bread - anyone make this?

Recommended Posts

I have pondered this for years.  I am considering making it homemade to save money.  

 

Does anyone here do this?  I would love your tried and true mix or recipe.  Also, do you use a bread machine or just do it by hand. 

 

Funny, before we were GF I made all of our breads homemade.  I have never attempted this gluten free.

I've made a few kinds of GF bread. It's hardly worth the effort because it tastes so good that the non-GF people in my house eat it all up before a day has passed. :glare: I use the yeast bread recipes that America's Test Kitchen has in their GF cookbooks.

 

ETA: I mix it by hand. Don't own a bread machine.

I do love the ATK book but I don't think I've tried the bread recipe, it seems their baking recipes are a bit of a pain to make! I've always wanted to try the popovers though, they look so cool.

Pamela’s bread mix. Don’t even bother with anything else.

 

 

We love their baking mix and this is what really got me to thinking about making my own bread.  Do you know they have a 25# bag of the bread mix on Amazon S&S and it comes out to less than $2 per pound?

So I was eyeing this....

Is it worth the $$? I am tired of spending so much on GF bread.  For real, ifI can get the Pamela's so cheap on amazon and I use this, it will pay for itself pretty quick.

After reading Sparkly's link (thank you so much for that , SU!), I looked on Craigslist and am picking up a bread maker for $20 tonight. It had good reviews on Amazon. I vote look for something used. Edited by IfIOnly

I will say looking at the ingredient's list, it's no wonder GF bread is so expensive.  You might not find that you can save a whole lot of money doing it yourself.

There are such things!

 

Here for example:

 

http://www.forkandbeans.com/2014/01/01/gluten-free-vegan-bread/

Did you see the nutritional info for this recipe? Calories for the loaf 2168. The recipe says it makes ten slices. That's a lot of calories for one slice of bread (217).

The thing I have found with GF baking is this: many people formulate their own recipes that work only by following the recipe exactly. Some minor changes can be made but temps, measurements, amount of liquid, etc usually must be exact. I'm not trying to be a naysayer nor am I trying to persuade you from making your own GF bread. I've just found it interesting that so many people have individualized recipes and then blog about how they had to make multiple loaves before creating a recipe that worked two times in a row.

I have found a pretty good GF bread at Costco.  I think it's less than $4 a loaf.  Small loaf, but it's pretty decent for GF bread.

There are many good recipes out there but this King Arthur one I've had the best luck in my gluten free bread maker. I love this bread machine! Oster 2 lb. Bread Maker with Gluten-Free Setting https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004DPHKBA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_STQyAbEJWE35E

 

Just be sure to add the extra egg in the recipe if you make it in a bread machine.

Pamela's 100%.  Tried about 6 others, and Pamela's is the best.

 

My GF husband's favorite is the sweet bread (directions on back of bread mix bag).  Its not very sweet, but has  a nice airy texture.

 

We use the bread machine.  White bread setting.
