We don’t eat a lot of bread. It’s not that I don’t love it, it’s just a pain to heat up the house with the oven. My air conditioner runs 360 days a year as it is. And I really don’t need another gadget, i.e. bread machine, taking up room on my counter.
But we have discovered a few good gluten-free breads, even with all of my food limitations. Here’s a quick and dirty round-up:
Pamela’s Products. Haven’t personally tried them, because they contain potato starch. But I’ve heard many gluten intolerants swear by her products.
Breads from Anna. Also haven’t tried these, because they use bean flour. But again, I’ve heard many people say they are wonderful. I’ve personally met Anna, and she’s a doll! And her mixes are formulated to have a low glycemic index.
Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse. I’ve had the cinnamon raisin bread, before I realized I was intolerant to some of the ingredients. I thought it was fabulous.
Fast & Fresh Minute Hamburger Bun Mix. Hamburger buns, in two minutes, from the microwave. What’s not to like?
Assorted quick breads. Try the soda bread. And the corn bread. Really.
Last but not least: Any bread recipe from Gluten-Free Baking Classics by Annalise G. Roberts. They are all great, and are adaptable to my unique requirements. I highly recommend this book.
