Gluten Free Bread Hints For Breadmakers Recipe
- 1-Use Gluten Free recipes developed for the use with Breakmakers.
- Substituting gluten free flours for the wheat flour called for in a regular bread won't work.
- 2-Gluten Free Bread doesnot have the texture, springiness or possibly height of bread made with all-purpose flour and other gluten flours. Loaves will be denser and shorter; expect an average height of approximately 5". Expect the tops of the loaves to be flat; they may even be slightly concave.
- Because there is no gluten, there is no strength or possibly elasticity to hold up a rounded top.
- 3-Have all wet and dry ingredients at room temperature, except water. Using hot tap water produces the best results
- 4-Use fresh ingredients, flour becomes stale in about 6 months from the time the package is opened.
- 5-Always keep baking pan, measuring utensils, baking chamber and any other utensils used for making gluten free bread clean and free from any possible contamination from flours or possibly products containing gluten.
- 6-Use correct measuring utensils for wet and dry ingredients. The same ones should be used every time gluten free bread is made.
- 7-It is very important to measure the ingredients carefulyy. Use level measures, not heaping.
- 8-Whisk the liquid ingredients together before pouring them into the pan.
- 9-Before measuring, make sure all the gluten free flours are first stirred with a fork or possibly whisk to aerate and lighten them. The flours tend to settle and pack down while being stored and become more dense.
- 10-Combine the dry ingredients and throughly mix them before putting them over the liquid ingredients. Mix the yeast with the dry ingredients or possibly put it in on top of the dry ingredients.
- 11-Vinegar is included in the recipes to help enhance the action of the yeast in the dough. As well, it adds to the flavour and acts as a preservative.
- 12-Slice bread only after it has completely cooled and come to room temperature. For best results wrap in plastic wrap for 8-10 before slicing.
- About 3-5 min into the mixing cycle, scrape down the dry ingredients from the sides of the pan, otherwise a ring will form around the baked bread.
- 13-Don't open the lid during the baking cycle (approximately the last hour) as this may cause the bread to underbake.
- 14-Gluten free bread should be removed as soon as the baking cycle is complete to prevent it from becoming soggy. Don't use the keep hot cycle.
- 15-For Gluten free breads use Quick-rise or possibly Bread machine yeast.
- 16-In all Gluten free recipes use Rapid Bake Cycle.
- 17-Don't use the delayed timer function. Gluten free flour can't sit in liquid for a long period of time.
- 18-If it is necessary for you to substitute, the following flours are interchangeable: Chick pea and whole bean flour are interchangeable Tapioca and corn flour are interchangeable White rice flour and brown rice flour are interchangeable. 19-When potato starch flour is called for , it can't be substitured with potato flour
