When I mix all the liquids I use a hand blender to give them a good mix, pour that into the breadmakers pan then make the flour mix with 400gm of GF flour, the sugar and salt. Pour over the top of the liquid then add 265gm of GF flour and finally sprinkle the yeast on top.
This stops the yeast from coming into contact with the salt. I let the machine then do all the mixing. You get a more consistent texture this way.
I also make a focaccia type bread by adding 1 1/2 tsps. of mixed herbs and 1 tsp of garlic salt to the flour mix and using olive oil instead of sunflower oil.
If you want a denser structure add a tsp of Xanthan gum
I made bread and followed the recipe and the top was soggy and the sides was hard and crispy and didn't taste as good as I hoped.
I have to use the yeast fast acting or the normal one?
My husband has decided he may be gluten-intolerant and we are trying to cut it out. I don't like shop-bought gluten-free bread so I bought a bread machine (Morphy Richards)and some flour and tried this recipe. To my surprise the first loaf was actually like "real" bread, so I made another bigger one which looks even better.
I agree entirely with Mrs Lynn Hounsome, On the net I can see recipes for SOFT gluten free bread using other brands GF flours. Dove Farm please find a recipe for us.
Sorry you're struggling. All bread machines are slightly different. We do have a range of them to develop recipes with at Doves Farm but by no means have one of each available on the market. Try contacting your machine manufacturer and checking which setting they suggest when using our flour. They will often have their own recipe to suggest too.
I have made this white load twice, one large one medium, both have turned out lovely. In the medium one I did add a couple of pinches of zantham gum and it perhaps was slightly better but both nice especially warm. Don't forget to use bread flour :)
I have a Panasonic bread machine with gluten free programme, yet this bread is very heavy and dense. I have tried several times, making various adjustments - such as mixing it all together in a food mixer before placing the dough in the bread machine, which was marginally more acceptable in that the bread rose a little, but it is still very heavy and dense. I had hoped to be able to make gluten free bread as good as the bread available at any supermarket - its soft and can be eaten as a sandwich whereas this is really only edible as toast! I am very disappointed and wondered if anyone in the Doves Farm Research and Development team has any ideas? Its costing me a lot of money to fail to produce soft, edible bread for sandwiches!
All bread machines are slightly different from one another. Even those with gluten free settings may work better with our flour on an alternative one. Try contacting your machine manufacturer and asking which they suggest when using Doves Farm gluten free flour. They may even have their own recipe to suggest.
Ive not yet made bread, and am trying to find a suitable recipe for my breadmaker, it only makes a 1lb loaf, what size does the medium recipe turn out? Will I need to half the amounts? Please help!
The medium recipe will produce a loaf of around 1kg/2lb, so you may need to halve this recipe for your machine. All bread makers are slightly different, so we advise you contact the manufacturer of your machine to ask which setting they suggest is most suitable.
I have a Russell Hobbs breadmaker. Tried the recipe exactly to instruction (except soya milk for regular milk) on the gluten free setting on the machine. It was a disaster! The bread didnt rise at all. Any advice? I could try sweetened soya milk or rice milk, or perhaps the regular fast setting whihc takes an hour. Any thoughts greatly appreciated!
Altering the milk will make a small difference. We suggest you contact the manufacturer of your machine to check which setting is best when using our flour. They should be able to assist. Alternatively, it is very easy to make gluten free bread in the oven (see recipe to right of page).
I tried this recipe as my daughter as we did an intolerance test for my daughter who has severe eczema. Turns out she cant have gluten, milk, eggs or soya amongst other things. I am not the best when it comes to baking, even with a bread machine. I used hemp milk and orgran egg replacer. This did not turn out well, it was really heavy and stodgy. Please could I have some advice.
Adapting this recipe will be difficult as it needs the eggs to rise, however you could try using a dairy free milk alternative in our gluten free soda bread recipe: www.dovesfarm.co.uk/recipes/brown-soda-bread/ Hope this helps! ~ Doves Farm
