Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Soy-Free Nut-Free Peanut-Free Corn-Free

Use this wonderful, tasty bread for all of your traditional bread needs!

Ingredients
    • 1 bag (3½ cups) Pamela's Bread Mix
    • 2¼ 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
    • 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.

Are there measurements and directions to make a one and a half pound loaf? I have an older bread machine that I would like to be able to use again. I bought a four pound bag of mix, but I didn't realize that the recipe was only good for two pound bread machines. The mix is expensive enough I'm reluctant to experiment, and I don't want to invest in a new bread machine until I know I'm going to like the bread. Thank you!

Hi Jennifer,
We have tried it, but to convert a 2 lb loaf to a 1.5 lb loaf, try multiplying the ingredient measurements by .75 or 3/4.
So, you would have:
2.62 cups or 2 5/8 cups or 404 grams of Pamela's Bread Mix
1.69 tsp or 5.25 grams active dry yeast
1.5 large eggs
1/4 cup oil
warm water (per directions, but use 1.5 cups instead of 2 cup measuring cup)
We hope that works! Let us know if you try it.

    • Jennifer I know this has been a long while, but I use a Hamilton Beach bread maker and just used the 1.5 lb setting and gluten-free cycle (the bag didn't say any different - just today seeing the notes!) My bread turned out great! SO great I am ordering 3 of mix bags on Amazon (the price is better tht way) I came here to see if instant yeast was ok to use. Hope this helps. I like the Hamilton Beach maker was only $60 on Amazon.Regi

I use a Zojirushi bread machine and am wondering what would cause the following:

1 - As the dough rises, it develops cracks on the top

2 - After the bread has baked and while it's cooling, the bread collapses a little in the center

Thanks!

Hello. Will this recipe fit in a 2lb pullman bread pan as is, or should I double it? I'm getting confused because the 2lb bread pan is 16x4 and this 2lb bread fits in a 8x4 pan. what am I missing? is it the size of the bread only? thanks!

I baked the bread at 350 for 60 mins and the top burned badly but the inside was kind of soggy. I cut the slices when the bread had cooled down and baked it for additional 20 mins at 350. The outside was nice and crunchy but the middle/inside stayed moist. How can I correct that? Thanks!

Can I use fast-acting yeast instead of the active yeast the recipe calls for?

Can I use this bread mix to make pumpkin bread? I see you now have a pumpkin bread mix, but it has way too much sugar. And I like making pumpkin bread from scratch with fresh butternut squash. Could you please help me? Also, can I use this mix to make zucchini bread also? Thank you!

My sister is gluten and dairy free - she just had a baby and I have been making this bread for her every week to have on-hand as a snack. She loves it and says it is helping her milk production. The mix is really soft and delicious, and very easy to make! Excited to try some of the other products!

Can I add sugar for a sweet braided Easter bread? Do I allowed to rise the first time in the bread machine then? Thank you
