It's A Gluten Free Ham Sandwich Bread Baking Day

So, you are Gluten Intolerant!
You think that means NO MORE Ham and Cheese Sandwiches!
You think that means NO MORE Toast with Plum Jelly with your NO MORE Oatmeal for breakfast!
WRONG!  WRONG! WRONG!

That's right...I'm here to tell you and show you that YOU can MakeIt, BakeIt and EatIt!

That'd be Gluten Free Homemade Bread!  Yep, today I slapped together a Ham Sandwich for lunch with a fresh out of the Bread Maker Loaf of Gluten Free Bread.  I promise you it is better than storebought wheat bread and way better than storebought gluten free cardboard bread.  Have you tried that stuff out of pure hunger for a sandwich or a piece of toast?  I did....and I decided right then and there I could bake better tasting bread in a coffe can over a firepit!

  I bake bread once a week and today was baking day.  Here's my freshly baked loaf of gluten free bread sliced for a ham sandwich.  I always use a sharp serrated bread knife.  The FIRST cut is a thin slice of the end or heel, and as with any loaf of bread the heel stays with the loaf until the end...the other end! 

Just look at that Ham Sandwich! 
Can you believe the breads texture and crust?
The Secret to holey texture and a firm crust is in the last 10 minutes of baking!
I'll tell you about that and give you my Bread Recipe at the end of this post!
But first, I need to tell you about
How To Store and Save a Loaf of Gluten Free Bread!

After the Baking is done, cool the loaf on a cooling rack until it is kitchen temperature before slicing!
Unless of course you want a warm piece sprinkled with sugar....like my Grandmother Minnie did.
All of us kids lined up for a warm piece of her sugar coated homemade bread.
A wonderful treat and a special memory of my Grandmother.

Your homemade loaf will stay fresh and soft stored in a plastic bread bag for several days.  After that it should go in the fridge.  The refriged loaf will return to it's fresh softness after slicing and popping in the microwave for about 20 seconds per slice.  I slice it as I use it and always cover the open end with the heel before restoring it in it's bag.  It makes great toast, but requires a higher setting on the toaster than regular wheat bread.  I love it smeared with my favorite Plum Jelly and Gluten Free Oatmeal....yum!! 
I bet you can hardly wait to bake your first loaf of Gluten Free Bread!

Oh! The Last Ten Minutes Tip!
At the end of your Bread Machine's Express Baking time...set your kitchen stove timer for 10 minutes and move your Bread Machine's Bake Options from Express to Bake and Re-Start. 
Be sure and unplug your Bread Machine when your Stove Timer goes off.
Remove loaf pan from Bread Machine immediately and remove loaf from pan!
Take out the Bread Machine Paddle and cool loaf on a rack.!
That's All Folks!
Happy Gluten Free Bread Making and Eating!!!!

  1. I am a bread lover. So, with that said, I just don't have a clue about Gluten free foods. My doctor said I should try to eat Gluten free but honestly I already spend hours (no exaggeration)reading labels for sugar content (Diabetes Type 2) and I just can't bring myself to buy foods from foreign place like: Mexico , Guatemala, Brazil, Chile, and China. Maybe you could explain it to me by email some time. I also don't have a bread machine. Everytime I try to make bread my husband says it's flat and hard and I should give it to the kids who play street hockey so they can use it for a puck. :( ~Ames

  3. Thank you for following my blog. I am doubly thankful because my daughter and her family are on a totally gluten free diet. They use the Udi bread so I know she will be glad to have this information.

  4. Great post! My granddaughter has Celiac Disease and eats gluten-free... and understands what she can and cannot eat at the ripe old age of 8-in-2-weeks! AND my son and his family live and work in Mexico. (We grow Royal Star Papaya!) The availability of gluten-free foods in very limited, but down there they eat very little that is processed foods... no mixes, no fast-food... it's mostly fresh made and seldom canned or frozen. It's a very healthy lifestyle. Thanks for posting!

  5. Wow, I am impressed, a GF bread that actually looks like bread. Some of the stuff we have been getting is pretty bad, and yes it does taste like cardboard.

    Thanks for sharing.
