In preparation for summer, I decided to start working on a gluten free bread machine recipe, and I’m so glad that I did! I have on old version of the Breadman Ultimate, Model No. TR2200WWC, similar to the TR2200C. If I recall correctly, I purchased it around 2004, well before they made bread machines with a gluten free cycle. One thing great about the Breadman Ultimate series is that they are programmable so that you can skip steps or set the length of time, i.e., the first and second kneads, shape (punch), bake and rise, even add ins. If you have a newer model, perhaps it will turn out well using the gluten free cycle.
UPDATE: One of my recipe testers made this bread in her Hitachi bread machine without a gluten free bread setting. She used the Bread button and “Dark” setting. She stopped the baking cycle when it still had 40 minutes left. She loved it!
This was my second attempt. The day before I had a huge failure, but I was trying to make a bread without tapioca or potato starch. Though this one turned out a bit starchy, the flavor is absolutely incredible, and there was absolutely no shrinkage once it cooled. It can definitely be used for a sandwich bread. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Meanwhile, I’ll be working on improving the starchiness. I’ll probably skip one of the kneading steps to begin with, as this may have made the dough too starchy; and because I could still smell yeast after it was baked, that tells me it rose too long. I will also be working on other gluten free bread recipes for machines soon. I especially want to try substituting the tapioca starch for more cornstarch since I’m allergic to tapioca. Meanwhile, this bread is so much better than any other bread I’ve made thus far in a bread machine. I hope you enjoy it for now.
