Need bread machine recipe--wheat/gluten free

Taryn 6-S. OntarioNovember 24, 2000


I recently went on the "Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type" diet, & can't have wheat or gluten. So I bought an automatic bread machine & have searched the net endlessly for recipes that will end up like bread, not bricks. So far, no luck. I've found them, but they don't rise properly. The flours I can have are oat, rice, graham, spelt, & white. Yeast is fine too. Any suggestions for a tried & true 1 1/2 lb bread machine recipe would be much appreciated. Taryn :)

Have you searched for celiac + "bread machine". A number of newsgroups are discussing the same problem.

Some excerpts:

. Instead of three eggs, try using one egg plus two egg whites;
. for more leavening, add 1 to 3 teaspoons Egg Replacer;
. for a rounded loaf, a springy texture and success every time, add 1
teaspoon unflavored gelatin to the dry ingredients before dumping
them into your mixer or bread machine.

From: Larson Sharon (zzlarson@ACC.WUACC.EDU)
Makes 1 medium loaf
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil (or canola)
1 1/2 cups water
2 cups white rice flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 Tablespoon xanthan gum
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon egg replacer (optional--I didn't)
2/3 cup dry milk
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
Combine eggs, vinegar, oil and water; pour carefully into baking pan of
electric breadmaker. In mixing bowl, combine rice flour, potato starch,
tapioca flour, cornstarch, xanthan gum, sugar, salt, optional egg
replacer, dry milk and yeast; mix well. Add dry ingredients to baking
pan. Carefully seat pan in breadmaker. Select normal/white cycle; start
machine. (For machines with "bake only" cycle--such as Red Star which is
what I use--select "dough" cycle for mixing, then stop, then "bake only"
to finish bread.) After mixing begins, help scrape any unmixed
ingredients into the dough with a rubber spatula. Stay at edges and top
of batter so as not to interfere with the paddle. When bake cycle is
complete, remove pan from machine. Invert pan and shake gently to remove
bread. Cool upright on rack before slicing. *Note: Use potato
starch--not potato flour. All ingredients except yeast, which may be
cold, should be at room temperature. Humidity and other factors can
affect dough consistency, which should be stiffer than cake batter but
not as stiff as cookie dough. If dough appears too dry, add liquid,
one tablespoon at a time, to achieve consistency that allows machine to
mix by itself. I personally have not had to adjust the recipe--midwest,
Kansas/Missouri area. (This recipe was adapted from a recipe of Red Star
Yeast & Products.)

Thanks for the recipe. I've checked out many sites, including Angelfire's excellent site. Am going to try their Miracle White Bread, but it's not a bread machine recipe. I also am supposed to avoid gelatin & cornstarch, so this particular recipe won't work for me. Marie, I guess it's only wheat gluten that I can't have, because both oat flour & rice flour are supposed to be very beneficial, the others neutral. Thanks to both for your input. Taryn

A Gluten-free flour producer ( TRUFREE ) give a free automatic breadmaker recipe if you use there flour and write to them. The recipe does make very nice bread that rises and tasts nice. The bread is also nice slighty toasted.

They say that because gluten free flour is more delicate you should use the fastest machine setting possible.

The recipe is as follows :-

10 fluid oz (300ml) cold water
10.5 oz (300g) Trufree No4 or 5 flour
2 x 5ml teaspoon sunflower oil
.5 x 5ml teaspoon instant yeast (comes with the flower)
.5 x 5ml teaspoon salt.


set on rapid mode. Put the water in first then the remaining ingredients.

I hope this helps.

If you can't find it in a local grocery store (Sainsburys, etc.) try Harrods. They have some amazing things in their Food Court. And it used to be their motto that you could buy anything in the world there.

You can use any yeast/wheat free recipe in a bread maker as long as the cooking time is under 2 1/2 hours .
