I’ve been using this mix for years, it’s so simple to use, I make a fresh loaf weekly. This bread is my go to for toast and sandwiches. I let mine rise till it’s doubled in size to allow air to build and a lighter dough to bake, rather than the denser bread that is usually found in gluten free bread. I also bake mine a bit longer, covering it with aluminum foil, so that the moisture bakes out.
I first used Pamela’s bread mix when trying to make a GF king cake. What an amazing result! Just add 1Tbsp honey, 1Tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon & 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and top with purple, gold & green frosting. Baby optional. What a hit!! Now Pamela’s is my favorite bread.
I have a hard time with gluten free breads being dry and falling apart. The only way I've been able to eat most of them is toasted with jam on it and even then sometimes it's still not good. I ran across Pamela's when doing a search for gluten free formulas that don't have dairy or soy in the mix. Decided to give it a try. Plus it has the bread machine recipe right on the bag. Bonus! Everything you need is in the bag except for the eggs. I used 2 full eggs in mine. Technically I'm supposed to be allergic to egg whites so next time I think I'll try just the yolks plus a little "egg replacer" by Bob's Red Mill. Works great in cakes and brownies so should be fine in this bread. It rose up in the bread machine like regular bread. Smelled so good my husband was asking what it was. He won't touch gluten free anything. When done, I cut me a slice and it sliced even better than regular bread that I cook for my boys. The texture is moist-ish but very very soft and chewy. I'm in love with this bread. My husband grabbed a piece of mine and took a bite. He loves this bread too. He is surprised it's gluten free. Slightly sweet which makes for a great bread that you can just smear Miyoko's dairy free butter on and that's it. But it doesn't even need the butter to taste good. I liked it both ways. It slices so nice with a bread knife that you don't see many crumbs falling during the slice. Still soft on day 3 if it even lasts that long in the future. I do wrap in paper towels to prevent it from "sweating" and creating mold. Will work great in a toaster as well. Holds its form like regular bread. I won't buy any other gluten free bread from now on. Thanks, Pamela! You are a genius.
I have tried several brands of Gluten Free Bread. Pamela’s Bread Mix takes them all by leaps and bounds. I love the taste, the texture, no bitter aftertastes and the price. Yes, Pamela’s bread is the best out there!!
My husband got me a bread maker and a box of these mixes for my birthday last year. Let me tell you how happy I was. I kept telling him how much I wanted to make gf bread at home but with a machine so when he surprised me with it, we just had to make a loaf that same day. My husband and I looked like kids looking through the window of a candy shop. Every time the machine did something new to the bread, I would announce it and my husband would run through the house to come take a look. The aroma was amazing. When it was time to pull out the bread, we sliced it and put on butter that melted on its own due to the heat. I haven't had homemade bread from a bread machine in over 13 years since going gluten free. I grew up with my mom making bread every week and it was always amazing. This bread mix along with the bread maker took me back to my childhood. It is sooooooo good!
