Maddy and my daughter from another mother, Charly, gave me this new food processor for Christmas. My old one worked, but you had to literally stick a fork in it to make it go, (because I dropped it once.) This new Hamilton Beach processor is amazing! It has 2 bowls, so you can use it for more than one thing in a recipe without having to clean it in between. I haven't done that yet, but I am definitely on the lookout for a recipe where I can use that function, just because I can!
One thing that I had been wanting to try is mixing yeast bread in my food processor! I had seen it done on an old cooking show years ago, but I hadn't tried it. Since I wasn't going to have to stand there holding a fork in the machine while it mixed up the dough, I now had the perfect opportunity to try it!
We were going to have some of our family over for a meal shortly after the New Year and I was putting out sandwich fixings for everyone to make their own sandwiches. My SIL has to eat gluten free, so I wanted to give him some options. In my experience, store bought gluten free bread is usually dry, weirdly textured and expensive. I decided to try the food processor bread for him first. I looked through a ton of recipes and then I put together what I thought would work. I have to tell you that I have become a fan of xanthun gum. Even though the gluten free flour mix says it has it in it, use more! It really will help your bread!
The wonderful thing about this bread is that it mixes up so quickly and then it only has to rise for 25 minutes, once! It is amazing! When the first loaf that I made came out of the oven, I was so happy with the soft texture and the great taste. My SIL liked it so much that he asked for another loaf, which I baked for him, and he asked Lindsey to be sure to get the recipe from me. As a matter of fact, it came out so well that I decided to try the recipe again with regular flour and the results were equally amazing. I will tell you about that after I finish with the gluten recipe for you.
When I decided to try this recipe to make a regular wheat flour loaf of bread, all I did was substitute all purpose white flour for the gluten free flour mixture. I still added the xanthun gum just to see what it would do. The batter was slightly thinner than the gluten free batter, so I had to bake it a little longer. The results were amazing, just look:
This recipe is becoming my go to bread recipe for when I need a gluten free loaf or just a quick loaf of bread for dinner. Let me know if you give it a try!
