Amazing Bread (made with Bread Mix)

Amazing Bread (made with Bread Mix)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 bag (3-1/2 cups) Pamela's Gluten-Free Bread Mix
  • 2-1/4 tsp active dry yeast or 1 yeast packet 7g (packet enclosed in 19oz mix bag)
  • 1 egg large + 3 egg whites OR 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • warm water (per directions)

DIRECTIONS:

In a Bread Machine

Setting suggestion - Basic White Bread, 2 lb loaf, Medium Crust. Do not use Gluten-Free setting.

In a 2 cup liquid measuring cup, measure 1/3 cup oil, add eggs, then fill with warm water up to 2 cups liquid, plus 2 TBSP additional water. Pour all liquids into bread maker, add bread mix and yeast. Start machine and scrape down sides and corners of pan while dough is mixing. After

baking, remove from pan and let cool before removing paddle and slicing. High Altitude: Use 2 cups total liquid.

Oven Baking

Use a HEAVY DUTY STAND MIXER with whisk attachment. Do not use bread hooks. In a 2 cup liquid measuring cup, measure 1/3 cup oil, add eggs, then fill with warm water for a total of 2 cups, plus 2 TBSP additional water. Add to dry mix and yeast, then beat for 3 minutes on med/high.

Pour into lightly greased 8”x 4” bread pan, and smooth the top of the dough with a spatula. Let dough rest for 60 to 90 minutes in a warm, draft-free spot. If your kitchen is cold, you can turn on your oven for a minute or two at a low temperature and then turn it off and place the loaf pan in the oven (then be sure to take it out when you preheat the oven for baking).

After 60-90 minutes, the dough should rise but if not, it will rise when baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes then carefully remove from pan and cool on a rack. Though tempting to eat the bread hot out of the oven, we recommend letting it cool before slicing.

ROLLS: Fill lightly greased muffin tins 1/2 full of dough. Let rest for one hour and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.

Variations:

Add the following to the Pamela’s Amazing Bread Recipe above.

WHOLE WHEAT: 2 TBSP Molasses.

THREE SEED BREAD: 2 TBSP sesame seeds, 2 TBSP sunflower seeds, and 1 TBSP

poppy seeds.

CHEESE BREAD: 2 cups fine-shredded cheese and 2 TBSP melted butter (optional: 1/4 cup chopped green onions or jalapeno peppers).

HERB BREAD: 2 tsp Italian herbs, and 1/2 tsp onion powder.

CINNAMON BREAD: Use OVEN BAKING recipe only. In a separate bowl, combine 2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar. Fold cinnamon mixture into dough approximately three times to create cinnamon swirls. Let rest in pan for one hour and bake.

CROUTONS: Cut slices of bread into small squares and bake on a cookie sheet for two hours in 200° oven. Cut larger, thinner pieces to make toasts for appetizers.

ROLLS: Fill lightly greased muffin tins 1/2 full of dough. Let rise for 1 hour and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.

    This bread is great, simple, reliable, and with a lovely texture. I do wish the weight of the correct amount of flour were also listed, as I prefer measuring that way.

    Laura… appreciate your review.

    – Have you attempted to determine the weight for the flour and water based on your using this flour recipe? Like you I prefer to weigh the flour and water for accuracy. Flours all pack down – even the same sack of flour yields over time… different weights per cup, as you know.

    – Have you used Pamela’s Artisian flour.. if yes, how does it compare to the Bread Mix?
    I have only used the Artisian flour and my brother (who I make bread for) thought it was a 6 on a scale of 1 to 5.

    Thanks, sandy

      Hi Sandy –
      The weight of mix for the 2lb loaf recipe should weigh 539g. The water will vary based on how large your eggs are as you add the oil in your 2 cup measuring cup, crack the eggs on top of your oil and then fill to the 2C line with water.
      I hope this helps!

      Nope! Salt is already included in the bread mix. 🙂

    How does the baked bread have to be stored? If not in the freezer, how long will it stay fresh?

    • sandy troy pennington January 5, 2015 at 11:20 am #

      re storage… I make GF bread for my brother.. he slices the bread and freezes individual slices (air tight zip lock). He tells me… there is really no difference after freezing… he only keeps in the freezer for a week or so. He uses one slice for breakfast.. so he wants it in individual slices.

    • Pamelas Customer Service January 5, 2015 at 3:02 pm #

      Hi Nick –
      You will want to wrap the loaf air tight, and store it on the counter for 3-5 days depending on temperature and humidity level in your house.
      For longer storage, wrap air tight and store in the fridge or freezer. While it will keep longer, we do not have a timeline for that.
      Denise, Customer Service

    • sandy troy pennington January 5, 2015 at 5:42 pm #

      Hi Nick…. I make the bread for my brother and he tells me he freezes individual slices (air tight). He like to use one slice at a time. He leaves fresh bread in zip lock bag on the counter for 2 to 3 days.

      • Nick January 6, 2015 at 10:12 am #

        Thanks Sandy. My daughter doesn’t like toast for sandwiches so I wanted to see how long I can reasonably keep the bread on the counter. Thanks for the feedback.

        • sandy troy pennington January 6, 2015 at 1:46 pm #

          Nick…. after freezing… my brother says… he does not ‘need’ to toast the bread… when thawed it is almost indistinguishable from original fresh bread ready for sandwiches. ….. all the best.

  7. Theresa Rocque January 9, 2015 at 1:30 pm #

    How do I scale this recipe down for a 1 1/2 pound loaf? My bread machine only does 1 and 1 1/2 lb loaves. Thanks for your help!

    • Pamelas Customer Service January 12, 2015 at 11:36 am #

      The size of the loaf refers to actual weight versus overall volume of the finished loaf. Since gluten free items are naturally more dense, chances are the 2lb recipe will fit in a 1.5lb machine.
      If you try it, be sure to keep an eye on it to ensure it won’t overflow and scrape down the sides during mixing. If it looks like it will be too much, remove the mixed dough and bake in an 8×4 bread pan in the oven as directed on the package.

  9. Carrie February 2, 2015 at 7:04 pm #

    Is there a way to make this bread with only an oven and a handheld electric mixer?

    • Pamelas Customer Service February 4, 2015 at 3:17 pm #

      Hi Carrie –
      The Bread dough is like a thick quick bread batter and a hand held mixer may not be strong enough to properly mix it. You can mix by hand, just know it is a little more labor intensive.
      If you have not already done so, you may want to check out Pamela’s short “How-To” video, it may offer some helpful insights. You can locate this video in our Videos tab above.
      I hope this helps.

    hi. my husband made this with our bread maker and it came out soggy and very heavy….is that th eggs? is there a way to make this without the eggs? thanks 🙂

    • Pamelas Customer Service February 4, 2015 at 3:25 pm #

      Hi Stephanie –
      The Bread should come out similar to the photo above, with eggs in the recipe. Sometimes measuring the eggs/liquid can be confusing at first – are you sure you only added 2 total cups of water/oil/eggs?
      You can try eliminating 2T of the liquid to see how that helps. You can do this until the bread is your desired consistency.
      Please feel to email info@pamelasproducts.com or call 707/462-6605 for further questions.
      I hope this helps.

    Please tell me how much should 1 cup of Pamela’s Bread Mix weigh? (5.0 oz – 5. 8 oz) I used the dip and shake method and weighed 4 cups of flour and got a different weight each time.
    (I normally weigh flour for regular bread.) thankyou

    I just used my bread machine to make the dough for these and then baked them as rolls as noted in the variations section…sweet baby jesus, these are so good! I ran the bread machine on the dough setting and instead of letting the dough sit in the bread machine for the last hour to rise, I spooned the dough/batter into greased muffin tins and let it rise for an hour before baking. Delish!!!

        Hi,

        Most of my family eats gluten free and my sister is also egg white free. We don’t have a heavy duty mixer but still need/want to make the egg free recipe with “Neat Egg” substitute.

        Why does it say not to use the bread machine when making the egg free recipe? What do you suggest besides spending $500 on a heavy duty mixer?

        Thank you,

        Damien

        • Pamelas Customer Service March 28, 2016 at 10:34 am #

          Hi Damien,
          Some bread makers will not allow you to bake the loaf long enough (needs to bake longer with egg replacer). You can certainly try it – we have not tested every bread maker. You can also mix by hand, but the dough is very thick, which is why we recommend a mixer to make it easier. A basic KitchenAid mixer is under $300 if you ever decide to splurge for one!

    • Bread Lover February 12, 2017 at 10:20 am #

      I have only made this mix without eggs and it is my family’s favorite of all GF/egg free bread mixes I have tried. I have only made it by using Egg Replacer (equivalent to 2 eggs). I just saw the Pamela’s link below that recommends using 3 Egg Replacer ‘eggs.’ I will definitely try that next time but have been very happy with the results of 2.
      I have even toasted the slices, cut them into cubes, and then used them for Thanksgiving stuffing. Big holiday hit with my gluten free & my vegan family members!!! Thanks, Pamela’s!!!

      • Bread Lover February 12, 2017 at 10:26 am #

        I forgot to mention, I have never made the egg-free version in the oven. Always in my Zojirushi bread machine on regular bread cycle–NOT gluten free cycle. I think dark crust setting is a little better than medium setting. I scrape down the sides when the ‘add’ beep happens–about 45 minutes into the cycle. Good luck.

    Hi, as i do not have the oven but only the bread machine, so i would like to make the egg free bread with this bread mix, can you give me some idea how can i deal with it?
    Can i use just oil and water to add up to 2 cups of liquid? Or can i use egg replacer with the bread machine? Thanks!

    • Pamelas Customer Service July 27, 2015 at 4:13 pm #

      Hi Priscilla,
      The problem with making egg-free bread in the bread machine is that most bread machines will not bake long enough. You can try our Egg-Free Bread recipe in a bread machine on a longer bake time (around 70 minutes) if your machine will allow.

  17. Denise Townsend November 23, 2015 at 4:06 am #

    Our stores here carry your baking mix which I always use, however they do not carry your bread mix. How would I make yeast bread using your baking mix?

  21. Angela April 18, 2016 at 6:27 pm #

    Can you freeze the dough for the rolls and bake the rolls as needed? I baked the rolls last night and they were amazing. Not as good the next day though.

    • Pamelas Customer Service April 21, 2016 at 11:07 am #

      Hi Angela,
      Yes, you should be able to freeze the dough — let rise in roll pan for about 15 minutes, then put plastic wrap over entire pan and put it freezer. Once they are frozen, you could take them out of the pan and put in a plastic bag in freezer. When you want to bake them, take them out to thaw while oven is preheating and then bake until done.

  26. Erin November 25, 2016 at 4:20 pm #

    I’m working on my first loaf right now. The recipe says to let the dough rest for 60-90 minutes. Does that mean I can let it rest for any amount of time between 60-90 minutes, or is there a “all done resting!” point I should be watching for?

    • Pamelas Customer Service November 29, 2016 at 9:40 am #

      Hi Erin,
      Yes, you can let rest any amount of time between 60-90 minutes. It may continue rising in that time, which is fine. Also, sometimes it may not rise much while resting, but will rise as it bakes. Hopefully your bread turned out well!

    • Pamelas Customer Service January 16, 2017 at 8:31 am #

      Yes, we recommend smoothing the dough. We will add that step to the directions – thank you for pointing that out.

  28. Cyndee January 16, 2017 at 8:38 am #

    When I first had bread made from this bread mix, it was somewhat fluffy, if I remember right. But my bread comes out very dense. I’ve tried doing it in my bread maker. I’ve also tried doing it with my Kitchenaid & then the oven. Still dense.
    Is my memory failing me? Or is there another way??

    • Pamelas Customer Service January 16, 2017 at 8:54 am #

      Hi Cyndee,
      We have not changed the recipe. Is your yeast fresh? Are you letting the dough rise in a warm spot? This bread isn’t necessarily “fluffy,” but it shouldn’t be too dense either.

    Is there a way to add sourdough starter to this bread mix to create a sourdough bread maker bread?

    • Pamelas Customer Service February 13, 2017 at 2:22 pm #

      Hi Sherry,
      We have not tried adding sourdough starter. Most sourdough starters are not gluten-free (if that is a concern). Maybe we will try this, using a GF starter.

  30. Tracy W May 28, 2017 at 3:42 pm #

    I make this bread at least once a week for my family (and I have picky elementary school kids). Tried SOOO many other gluten free breads. I used to blend all the flours. That was so time consuming! I find that if you whip up the egg whites then incorporate them at the end, you get a beautiful fluffy bread. I also often use coconut oil and sub the water with pineapple juice. Makes an awesome “Hawaiian Bread”.

    I made this bread with my kitchen aide mixer and baked it in the oven. I used a warm 8X4 cast iron bread pan. I let it rise for an hour, even though it did not rise much. I baked it to 210 degree internal temperature. When I brought it out of the oven it was beautiful, it had risen nearly two inches above the pan. Then it promptly fell, to about 2 inchs high. It now resembled a brick with about the same constency. What did I do wrong?

    Anyone substitute other liquids for the water ? Milk or cider is something I have some with some of my bread recipes in the past, but haven’t experimented with switching liquids for GF recipes

    Looking for some fall options …

  36. Jacqie M November 17, 2017 at 6:23 am #

    We are definitely Pamela’s Amazing Bread mix fans. No other GF bread comes close to this bread in our opinion. I found this mix at a local family grocery store in the single loaf package and decided to give it a try. OMG! It was Heavenly but costly so I went to the website and found that the larger bags made it more affordable so I ordered 3 bags which provided more savings. BUT, I can’t seem to get the bread to come out as nice as it did from the single loaf bag w/the yeast packet in it. Yes, it’s still good GF bread but just not quite as good. I can’t figure out why that is. I always use fresh ingredients and the right kind of yeast. I measure properly and follow the instructions to a T but the bread is denser/ wetter and does not rise as much. Even more so if I use my bread machine. Since I know from reading info online that it’s identical from either package, why doesn’t it turn out the same?
