  • Bread machine recipes?

    Does anyone have any PB-friendly bread machine recipes? During the cooler months, I baked bread every other day. Teh Hubby's going to be sad if the bread machine turns into a doorstop.

    Bread is not part of the PB because all bread, with the exception of some coconut flour based quick-breads, are made from grain flour. Instead of the bread machine, fire up the grill and see if he complains about a lack of bread when there is steak on the table. ;-)

    I would also recommend you check out the PB 101 section for more information about why PBers don't eat grains.

    Good luck!

          People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

              @ AliceH:
              I had my hubby ask the same question for me, before I joined the forums. I got the same answers (although I missed the "bacon and sex diet" - I like that one!). My hubby had gifted me with a bread machine for Christmas a few years after we got married - an item I had wanted since before we were married. It absolutely made my Christmas and now, the thought of giving it up is so sad to me. However, I have to admit that after only a couple months of being Primal - I do not miss the bloating and pain that came with eating all those grains. I guess I might have to join you on posting on Craig's List . : )

                The point is not to make a traditional gluten bread, the point is to find something to do with the bread machine. I see "bread" recipes here all the time, but they all seemed to be geared toward firing up the oven, which is impractical until probably October. Turning the oven on long enough to bake, for instance, this recipe would require running the air conditioner for probably two hours after the bread is done, which is neither financially or environmentally desirable. Unfortunately, I don't have experience with converting traditional recipes to work in a bread machine, and I don't have any experience trying to use, say, almond or coconut flour for baking, so I was hoping someone who did have some experience could offer some insight.

                  Ahhh...that makes sense. I didn't even think of trying to experiment using the bread machine to create primal treats. Perhaps you need to be the trailblazer here!

                    The recipes I have seen for breads with coconut or almond flour do not include yeast or a starter or kneading -- and are essentially quick-breads. I'm not all that familiar with bread machines as I make bread (probably should be past tense there) either by hand or in my KitchenAid mixer - if a bread machine can work with a quick-bread and no rising time then I think you could convert a recipe to your machine. See this page for a discussion on how to convert a standard recipe - the biggest factor to consider is controlling the volume of the dough due to space limitations.

                      Most bread machines (including mine) have a quick bread setting, so yeah, that's probably the direction I'm going to end up going. I think I'm also going to try a frittata in it at some point, I can't think of a reason it wouldn't work as long as I can figure out the correct depth to match the cooking time.

                        I was searching through this site looking for an answer to the same question as the OP but haven't found a definative one yet.

                        I did find a reference to this recipe but I have a few questions about it that maybe some people who are more knowlegable about baking could answer.

                        To start with I'd prefer to use coconut flour rather than soy flour but I'm not sure how that would change things. That recipe uses Splenda instead of sugar. This confuses me because I always thought that the reason for putting sugar into bread dough is so that the yeast have something to eat and that's how they are able to make the carbon dioxide bubbles that give bread its texture.

                        If that's the case does a substantial amount of sugar remain in the bread after it is baked or does it all get consumed by the yeast? If it does all get consumed then there shouldn't be any problem putting sugar into low-carb bread dough because there won't be any left when it's time to eat it. From what I gathered on another thread the essential wheat gluten in that recipe is added so the yeast have something to eat but if sugar will do the job I'd rather use that.

                        If anyone has some insights on these questions I would highly appreciate some help. I'm sure that I could figure it out entirely by experimentation but if there's a way to leverage outside experience so that I don't waste ingredients that would be my first choice.

                          I've been using my bread machine for quite a bit using a combination of sorghum flour, white rice flour, and tapioca starch.

                          This has been my standard Go-To

                          1 1/2 cups sorghum flour
                          1 cup tapioca starch
                          1/2 cup white rice flour
                          2 teaspoons xanthan gum
                          1/ 1/4 teaspoons salt
                          1 packet rapid dry yeast

                          edit: It's delicious

                            Then you just set this to the standard time and temp of your bread machine?

                              I make a 1.5lb loaf with medium crust. All I do is add 2 eggs, 1 1/4cup water, like a tablespoon of honey, and that's pretty much it.

                              I have a gluten free cycle on my breadmaker, but if you don't you can use the rapid rise cycle.
