Finally! A Gluten-Free Bread Recipe for the Bread Machine (that you want to eat)!

I’ve tried a few times to make gluten free baked goods. Let’s just say most of them elicit a polite “Good try.” from my family as they discreetly place the offensive food in the trash…or give it to the dogs.¬† It makes me sad because I’m actually a great bread maker.. well, a great baker in general, minus fancy cakes. Plus, my husband has to be missing bread by now — he has been seriously committed to being gluten free for over a month.

So, I am very grateful to have found this recipe:

I have a hard time following recipes exactly. I’m a substituter. Yes, I know that’s not really a word, but it describes me. Therefore, for this recipe, I didn’t use potato starch or powdered milk. I used a bit more water and a bit of garbanzo bean flour and olive oil instead of canola. The rest was followed exactly… and I used about 2 tbsp of yeast. I don’t have a GF setting on my bread machine, so I did the standard whole grain loaf for 4 hours.

It smelled delicious baking. I was almost afraid to open¬† the machine and see what I normally see from my GF attempts- some sad, soggy, rubbery piece of yuck. Here’s what it looks like!

Let’s hope my husband thinks it’s tasty! It’ll be served tonight along side a slow cooker of potato soup and a fresh salad.

Fall and Yarn (and food)

It’s so beautiful out in East TN!

Today I sat on my patio and crocheted a scarf and hat

I don’t use patterns for the scarves and hats I make.. I just pick some yarn and let inspiration take over.

While I crocheted these items, I made a ground beef and vegetable soup:

Brown 1/2 lb ground beef, add chopped onions until cooked. 3-4 small potatoes sliced, 1 and 1/2 cups of spinach, and a maybe 1/2 C of lentils, add water, cook until all items are cooked. I added salt, pepper, and garlic for spices — YUM!

I also used my bread machine to make Raisin/Cherry bread and mixed up some vanilla almond milk and confectioner’s sugar for icing. Wouldn’t it be great if bread machines could make more than one loaf at a time?
