Gluten Free Bread Making

Postby spudie » Sun Mar 22, 2020 1:58 am

Hi All.
Hoping where ever you are in the world at this most tragic time that you are safe and well.
Reason for this question is driven from the crisis we are facing.
I have three family that are gluten free and are finding it extremely hard to buy gluten free bread.
They have no cooking skills as well - :(
I have spend a few hours on the net looking for the "best proven recipes" - found these report to have the "best GF ever" but are usually hooked back to a sponsor somehow..

I have looked here and haven't as yet seen anything that the experts are recommending for us home bakers.
Is there such a thing, believe this would be the place to find out. On this forum there are members like me that are triers and there are the experts that have skills, knowledge and proven recipes that "work" .

I do have a bread maker that hasn't seen light of day for a few years.
Have made normal bread from scratch before but never GF (scary stuff).

I found a recipe from our famous Oddley - Is it as simple as replacing gluten flours with a mixture of GF flours. What are these, what else has to be added or removed and what Technics are involved.

Hoping for some assistance from bread experts that have a recipe for GF Bread, rolls, cakes or anything please help.

Happy to try anything as long as its recommended and proven.

Thanks in advance

I would start with either a bought gf flour or a mix based on the ingredients list of a bought one. Look up using xanthan gum in gf bread. I believe it's added in lieu of gluten...
...and there ends my knowledge of the subject.

Hi Phil
Thanks for the reply.
Since posting I have stumbled on what seems to be a pretty decent site.
They recommend replacement gram for gram with white & brown rice flours, tapioca flour / starch, sweet rice flour - (can be replaced with potato flour) and Xanthan Gum as you mentioned.
I will try recipe replacement and see where we end up :D

As before - hoping all those on this fantastic forum are safe and well no matter where you are in the world.

Hi Folks
Here is the Gentleman that has put a huge amount of effort into assisting anyone that wants to make stuff at home. Lives over He is so good at what he does that I think its near impossible to stuff his recipes up.
Great tutorials and like most of us - he does everything the right way (so I've found anyway).
I have attached the you tube video where I found out about him.
He hails from over your ways, some may already know of him.
For me & my family the " GF Bread " is better than shop bought - the best ever.
All the other bread recipes I have tried so far have turned out fantastic and taste so great.
We are now making bread for the tribe..... well until we hit forced isolation.

Johns recipe for GF Flour is simple,,, if you have trouble getting GF go to your Chinese Grocery and look there, cheaper as well.
