Baking #62: Gluten Free White Bread Loaf

I finally got the gluten free bread flours which Jennifer’s mom promised to give me to try after her unsuccessful attempts with her own bread machine. Much to my surprise, she gave me two bags of the gluten free bread flours – white and brown. With Sister being wheat intolerant, she asked me to give the recipe a try so that she can have some. So, I made her a loaf of this Gluten Free White Bread Loaf with the recipe printed on the packaging.

According to Jennifer’s mom, she followed the recipe exactly as printed on the packaging but her dough did not rise at all even after all cycles had completed. When my ingredients were kneading in the bread machine, I thought I am gonna have a failed dough too as the dough looked different compared to when kneading with normal bread flour. The dough seems to be more like a paste than a dough.

But thankfully, I think I succeeded my Gluten Free White Bread Loaf albeit the crater lookalike top. LOL!

So, this was how my Gluten Free White Bread Loaf looked like when sliced. There were more holes compared to normal bread. I did not try the texture of the bread myself but Sister did. According to her, texture and taste are exactly like how a gluten free bread supposed to be.

She brought at least 3/4 of the bread loaf with her back to Shanghai as no one in the family other than herself eats gluten free products. I am a wheat intolerant person but I still do consume wheat. LOL!

PS: Remember not to use gluten free setting on your bread machine albeit this is a gluten free bread. It may not yield the desired result.
