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
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!
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
I would say this was more like 4 and a half stars but not quite 5. I was given an old SD206 Panasonic machine and have just made my first loaf. Decided to make half of the large size recipe as that tied in better with the quanties in the manual. Overall I am very happy with it. It is possibly slightly too moist and may have benefited from cooking a few extra minutes. It also may also dry out a bit as the day goes on. I will tinker slightly with the ingredients and post again if I find a better mix.

Got the Panasonic 2502 today and tried this recipe - it was fantastic! My partner comes from a bakers family so not being able to have fresh, nice bread has been a nightmare. This provided a loaf so delicious and with a brilliant crumb that his family are considering converting to Gluten Free bread!
I have made this bread several times for my coeliac mother in law, successfully. I now have a friend staying who can't eat egg either. What can I add to replace the egg?
Egg can be replaced by several mixtures, including the following (which are all suggested to replace 1 medium egg): 1 tbsp gram flour mixed with 1tbsp water OR 80g plain yoghurt mixed with 1/2 tsp oil OR 2.5tbsp ground flaxseed with 3tbsp water OR 1tbsp white/cider vinegar mixed with 1tsp bicarbonate of soda. Remember that they will have a small effect on the texture of the finished bake.
I've now tried this recipe twice, once with brown and no yeast and in turned our like sweet bread. Second time with white and yeast and the bottom of the loaf didn't cook and the top didn't and the top of the bread breaks. I don't know what i'm doing wrong? I've just bought my machine and am getting a bit frustrated.
This recipe may not be suitable in a bread machine without yeast. Contact the manufacturer of your bread machine; they will be able to advise you on the best setting to use for gluten free bread recipes.
