Bread and butter. Toast. Sandwiches. Some of my old favorites just came back to life! I’m now enjoying them once again, only now they’re gluten-free.
King Arthur Flour, one of the ingredients of choice for baking from my pre-celiac days, has now proven their exceptional quality once again. This time they’ve come up with a gluten-free bread mix that actually tastes good.
When I found out that it was available, I was really excited. But, I was afraid I’d be disappointed…I had been disappointed so many times by commercially prepared gluten-free bread mixes before…
…You know how they can be — soggy, mushy, crumbly, falling apart and strangely flavored.
So, when I discovered that King Arthur Flour had developed a gluten-free bread mix, I just had to try it.
Back in my pre-celiac days, I frequently baked large batches of bread, cookies and cakes made with King Arthur Flour for my family and myself.
But, after starting my gluten-free diet, I focused on other providers and lost track of King Arthur and his products until recently when my sister mentioned their new gluten-free line.
It sounded almost too good to be true, but my first trial of their gluten-free bread mix was a definite success.
The most amazing proof was that my husband, Al, who generally hates gluten-free breads, ate a whole piece of it!
Above is a picture of the first bologna sandwich that I made with bread baked using the new King Arthur glutenfree bread mix…it tasted soooo good!
Following are a few pictures I took when I made my first batch of King Arthur’s glutenfree bread. Be sure to read the package for complete instructions.
“King Arthur Flour Gluten-free Bread Mix” Trial
I got out everything I was going to need… the King Arthur Glutenfree Bread Mix, eggs, water and butter.
I put the yeast and dry ingredients in a large bowl.
I beat the “stuffing” out of it and spooned it into the pan.
I let it rise till it was ready, then I baked it. And, here’s what I got:
The King Arthur Flour Glutenfree Bread Mix package says, “Produced in a dedicated gluten-free, allergen-free* manufacturing facility. *free of the 8 most common food allergens.”
Their website adds more about how they do it:
They state that their mixes “are Certified Gluten-Free™ by the non-profit Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), a program of the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG®). GFCO products are tested to be less than 10ppm (parts per million) gluten. This is stricter than even the FDA requirement of less than 20ppm gluten.”
