Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

This is my first attempt at creating a gluten free pumpkin bread. I used my gluten-free flour blend that I have used successfully on 3 other cakes now, however, the top center never would cook thoroughly, but was just as yummy. I was really afraid the rest would dry out if I cooked it much longer, but you’re welcome to give it a try. I couldn’t wait until it cooled completely before I cut into it, which is no-no, but well worth it. This gluten free pumpkin bread is just as moist as my gluten free banana bread, and the best pumpkin bread recipe I’ve ever had gluten free, or not! Enjoy and let me know how yours turns out. I bet these would make perfect muffins. Continue reading “Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread”

Udi’s Style Gluten Free White Bread Recipe

Image: Copycat Udi's Gluten Free White Breadd

A couple of days ago I made my first attempt at making a copycat recipe for an Udi’s-style gluten free white bread recipe. It was a flop. Today I took another stab at it and created a decent gluten free white bread recipe! Yeah! It’s not perfected yet but still tasted wonderful, even after it cooled. I used many of the ingredients which Udi’s white bread contains, however, the rice flour is just a little grainy. You can’t notice it in a sandwich, but you can notice it a little when eating it plain. I’d really rather use sorghum flour instead of rice flours, but just had to give this a go. Meanwhile, the texture of this bread is wonderful! -similar to sourdough sliced bread. It has that Udi’s chew, yet soft. And this recipe makes a much larger loaf than Udi’s white sandwich bread. I also added some substitutes for corn-free dieters. Enjoy my gluten free white bread recipe! Continue reading “Udi’s Style Gluten Free White Bread Recipe”

Mock Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread Recipe

If you haven’t heard of Udi’s gluten free bread, you’re missing out on a great textured gluten free bread that is also dairy-free. However, if you’re into gluten free baking or avoiding processed food, this recipe may help you. It is the softest gluten free bread I have made thus far, and works wonderful for sandwich bread, as well as kid-friendly. It turns out a decent sized slice, and when the crust cools it softens like gluten sliced sandwich bread. Continue reading “Mock Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread Recipe”

Whole Grain Gluten Free Bagels

This is my second attempt at gluten free bagels. My first attempt was a huge flop. This one has the perfect texture! I used Pamela’s products bread mix ingredient list as a base, and just judged the amounts. I began with a 3 cup flour mixture, but ended up needing a little more starch, so added a bit of potato starch. My husband loved them, and he’s not gluten-free. Next time I make this I’ll work on adding more a shine to them, as they are a bit flat in that area. In addition, I will change the flours a bit, as they are just a little grainy, not much after they cool, though. I’ll give the superfine rice flours a try. If you try it before I do, please update us all by leaving a comment below. Meanwhile, if you haven’t had bagels in awhile, you’ll definitely appreciate these gluten free bagels.

Gluten Free Zucchini Bread Recipe

Gluten Free Zucchini Bread

Quite a bit of research went into creating this gluten-free zucchini bread recipe to get this recipe just right. Most gluten free quick bread recipes (breads using leavening agents to enable immediate baking, rather than allowing to rise), allow you to interchange the fruit vegetable or puree you use, except for zucchini bread recipes. Zucchini contains quite a bit of liquid. Therefore, you either need to lessen the other liquids in the recipe or squeeze out much of the liquid in the zucchini. Instead, I began with my banana bread recipe, and opted to add additional flour. This gluten free zucchini bread recipe was made with my own blend of gluten free cake flour. I link to it below. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Zucchini Bread Recipe”

Gluten Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe

I have been meaning to develop a gluten free banana bread recipe for some time now, but just could not decide whether I wanted to go for a heavier, super moist banana bread or closer to a cake-like texture. I opted for the heavy, moist one. The experimenter in me wanted to see what would happen if I added a 1/2 cup of milk (I used homemade almond milk) to what I was positive would make the perfect gluten free banana bread recipe. And boy, I am so glad that I did. It came out perfect! It tastes like real banana bread! Adding milk usually helps gluten-free baked goods, as it contains protein, but when I saw such a runny batter I became worried. No problems though. So happy, fulfilled and full! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Bread Recipe: Quinoa and Flaxseed

Both quinoa and flax seed are very healthy, making this gluten free bread recipe a win-win because it is also delicious. This bread’s texture is pliable which is often hard to find in gluten free bread. Besides being one of the highest protein foods, quinoa contains twice the fiber as most grains. Flax seed not only contains fiber, but omega-3 fatty acids and the same ingredient as aloe vera. Quinoa is sometimes an acquired taste, but you can always substitute some of the quinoa flour for oat, sorghum or millet flour. Then you can increase the amount of quinoa flour once your taste buds become accustomed to it. As stated above, this bread has a great texture and is a wonderful choice to improve your health.

Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread

My husband requested that I make him a gluten free cinnamon raisin bread. Having already created a cranberry cinnamon raisin oat bread, I thought I would use a different flour this time. In an attempt to make a more economical bread, I used the typical starches and white and brown rice flours. I really like this bread knowing it is sweetened only with molasses, and includes a little flax seed meal, as well. This bread is soft, much like a gluten-free sandwich bread, however, if you wish a lighter gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread, I would suggest using more tapioca flour than potato flour. This is what I am going to experiement with next. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread”

Gluten Free White Sandwich Bread Recipe – an experiment w/superfine rice flour

Having had a few requests for a gluten free white sandwich bread recipe, I thought I’d create one, seeing that I had to bake bread anyway. My birthday’s coming up and why shouldn’t I give myself a little treat, right? It turned out incredibly well, if I don’t say so myself. I can’t describe the soft texture well enough when it first came out of the oven. Just incredible! That’s the only word I can think of for this bread. Unfortunately, it becomes much too heavy and starchy as it cools. This is an article more on what not to do.
