This mix makes the BEST gluten-free bread. It is easy to use (just add yeast, 2 eggs, oil & warm water) and you get the best results by just mixing it in a mixer and baking it in a loaf pan in the oven (rather than using a bread maker). Most pre-made gluten-free breads cost as much as this and are not anywhere near as good. Also try the biscuit mix and the pizza crust mix -- both are WAY better than their pre-made counterparts sold at grocery stores. I have been using these mixes for a couple of years and they are always great. Thank you Walmart for distributing the Duinkerken gluten-free products in the US!
First gluten-free bread I didn't have to toast to enjoy.
Since I became aware of my gluten intolerance, I have tried several different, packaged, "Gluten-Free" Bread mixes in the past several months and so far this one was the best as far as ingredients and results. It is made with Brown rice flour and other more nutritional flours than some of the others that I have tried but an even greater benefit was that it didn't have a very funny taste and it made great sandwiches. I kept it in one of those special bags that keeps food from spoiling too quickly and it worked out fine. With a bread knife, I was able to slice the bread very thin without it breaking or crumbling. The bread has a rich and hardy texture so thin slices were perfect. This also makes the best toast that is crispy outside and moist inside. In fact, I toast my bread for sandwiches because I use tomatoes which tend to make the bread a bit soggy or mushy and that came out even better with this bread. For being "gluten-free" this was a good one. I baked my bread in my bread machine on the "Quick" setting because I do not have a setting for "gluten-free". I read on the internet that this setting is perfect for "gluten-free" breads because it has only one knead and one rise cycle before it bakes. I left the setting on the default setting for browning the crust. For best results, you have to remove the bread as soon as it is done and place on a rack to cool because "gluten-free" bread will start to shrink from the moisture of the steam produced if left in the bread pan.
Not only do i enjoy the gluten free bread but my family does as well!! best product around, thank you duinkerken foods!
I used this mix with a bread machine. Everything went as expected up to the part where I removed the mixing paddle after the last kneading cycle. My machine has a gluten free cycle. The dough fell, as expected, but would not rise again before the bake cycle started. Not sure what I did wrong. The resulting product was dense and heavy but I liked the way it tasted. The texture was more coarse ... similar to corn bread. It was much easier to slice than regular wheat bread. Perhaps if I had more experience with gluten free baking I could give a better review. If you have the time and inclination to experiment, I would not discourage you from trying this product. I decided not to try again because we don't eat a lot of bread and the expense of this product did not make further efforts practical. I decided to use Bisquick gluten free to make a few, large flat bisquits for my bread needs.
