Making Gluten Free Bread

Published April 5, 2015 by lynn k scott

In our church, someone volunteers for the year to bring the communion bread.  I volunteered for 2015.  Now, I am one of two gluten-free people who attend this church.  They actually changed the communion bread to gluten free, so we don’t have to skip this part of the service.

I volunteered to make the bread, as buying it is really expensive and quite bland.  Granted, some of my attempts have not been up to my usual baking standards.  However, I think I have finally found the winning recipe and the right flour mixture.

I have switched to a new gluten-free flour mixture.  I have attempted, and had some success, making my own mixtures, I have tried several premade flour mixtures and I think I have found the one that works for me:  Pamela’s Artisan Flour Blend.

I have a really hard time buying mixes, even if it’s gluten-free.  I like one flour mixture that I can use for multiple recipes.  I made two loaves of white bread yesterday.  One for me to sample before taking to church and another to take to church. I was so impressed by the results.  The bread recipe I followed was spot on. The bread is moist, delicious and actually looks like a loaf of homemade bread.  Follow the tip on a parchment collar.  I had never used one before, but it helps immensely.

I have also used this flour blend to make gluten-free pancakes.  They are so good, you’d never tell they weren’t made with regular flour.  The nice thing with Pamela’s flour is I can Google almost anything and add “using Pamela’s Artisan Flour” and I get a lot of recipes to choose from.

UPDATE (4/6/15): The bread was a success! Over a dozen people came up to me telling me how great it was.

    • They make gluten-free flour blends in addition to having various flours available for you to combine on your own. You can choose from almond flour, rice flour, coconut flour, etc. Each have their own properties, so sometimes, just finding a blend that works for you and your needs is the biggest hurdle.
