Gluten-Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine

By Annalise Roberts

Gluten-Free Baking Classics for the Bread MachineGluten-Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine contains a well-tested collection of delicious recipes that were developed for and tested on a 2-pound Zojirushi bread machine. The book showcases forty tempting, traditional breads that individuals with gluten-sensitivities will be able to easily integrate into their baking repertoire. There are twenty recipes containing dairy and egg, and twenty that are dairy- and egg-free.

Classics for the Bread Machine was written with the same attention to detail for which Roberts has become known. She discusses gluten-free bread baking basics, provides critical insight into how the Zojirushi bread machine works, and much needed guidance into how to troubleshoot problems. Roberts also explains why bread recipes developed for traditional ovens often fail to produce good results when used in a bread machine and discusses the nuances of how to adapt wheat-based recipes. In her own indisputable way, she confirms, through testing, the often-ignored contention of bread machine producers and experienced bakers that recipes are machine specific.

Most importantly, Classics for the Bread Machine provides readers with dependable recipes for high quality breads that come as close to wheat in terms of taste, texture and appearance than any recipe you are likely to find. The recipes make tender loaves with the consistency of a homemade white bread and the rich taste of millet and sorghum, two ancient grains that will more than make up for the lack of wheat flavor. Roberts includes classic Basic Sandwich and Oatmeal Sandwich Breads and even an egg enriched Challah. She also offers a few special favorites from her own house: a Multi-Grain Pecan Sandwich bread that makes delicious sandwiches with slices of cold roast chicken and fresh tomatoes; and, a Black Forest Onion "Rye" Bread which she says makes the best patty melts you've ever eaten.
