Mixing it Up With Gluten-Free Bread Mixes

Gluten free bread

The warm wafting aroma of fresh bread baking is one of the most comforting scents in the world. Breadmaking can be an exacting and time-consuming process and gluten-free breadmaking is especially so because of the lack of the gluten protein to give the bread bind and elasticity. I have several times experienced opening my bread machine in anticipation, only to find a lump of dense undercooked gluten-free bread. While a bread machine with a gluten-free specific cycle makes the work of gluten-free breadmaking much easier, pre-bought gluten-free bread mixes make the task even less daunting. There is a huge selection of gluten-free bread mixes out there, so we’ve collected a few of the major brands for your benefit.

  1. We love the Pamela’s as it is all in there and all you have to do is add the moist items (water, eggs, oil) and the yeast. I dump in the Bread Man breadmaker and voila! It is one of my son’s favorite moist breads that would surprise you knowing that it is GF. Tastes a little like a sweet bread, but is perfect for sandwiches.

  2. We love the Bob’s Red Mill GF Hearty Whole Grain Bread Mix. It is easy to make and an excellent dark bread. It reminds me of the wonderful bread you can buy in Germany. Even those who don’t need to eat gluten free love this bread, it is exceptional

  3. My favorite bread mix is Grandpa’s Kitchen Bread Mix. It is so light and fluffy and tastes like homemade bread without the after taste other bread mixes have. However, it is a new company which is only located in Utah stores. You can buy their mixes on Amazon.com but I have never done that since I live by a store which carries their yummy products.

  4. Namaste bread mix (made in bread machine) is my regular GF bread for taking to potluck. People gobble it up with nary a “what is this?” comment, and the nut-allergic folks love that it has a nutty taste, but is safe for them.

    For hand-made bread, I prefer Manini’s, a newish GF company out of Seattle. Manini’s has no rice in it’s mix; they try very hard to keep the nutrition high. For me, these mixes (including the pasta mix) taste most like good quality wheat bread. (http://maninisglutenfree.wordpress.com/)
