New Gluten-Free Bread Method

| 3/20/2019 2:30:00 PM

If you prefer gluten free breads, you can make home-made tasty loaves that are healthy and cost less than what you find in stores.

I rarely make gluten-free bread. However, my experience has been that using gluten-free boxed bread mix or purchasing gluten-free flour mix is an economic and easy way to produce a quality gluten-free loaf.


The advantages of using a commercial mix to make gluten-free bread include:

  1. You don’t have to purchase multiple types of flour typically used in gluten-free loaves.
  2. There’s no worry about using the proper ratio of flours in your recipe.
  3. No need to search for a recipe you can count on. Your box mix or gluten-free flour mix should produce a satisfactory loaf (check out my recommended baking method here).
  4. There are multiple brand-name gluten-free mixes that are wonderful quality and readily available.

If you’ve had an unsuccessful experience baking gluten-free bread – either with a mix or from scratch – no need to give up. Gluten-free recipes are far different from wheat and other whole grain bread recipes. Learning how to manage them may take a bit.

One thing that both traditional bread and gluten-free bread have in common is yeast. The same method you can use to ensure you produce a high-rising, light traditional loaf of bread works equally well with the gluten-free: activate your yeast in recipe liquid that’s warmed to a specific temperature range and keep the dough warm throughout the mix/rising process.
