Hi Cheryl,
There is an ‘all-purpose’ gluten-free flour now available through a variety of brands. You can experiment using this type of flour to replace the flours listed in our gluten-free recipes. Let us know if you try any of them!
Happy baking!

Can I use Splenda in your bread recipes ? Also I don’t have xanthan gum is that necessary or is there a substitute ? Thanks!

Dear Sharon,
Artificial sweeteners do not provide food for the yeast so they cannot be used in breads to perform the same function as sugar does.

Xanthan gum and guar gum may be interchanged, although some people have a laxative effect from guar gum. Methylcellulose is not a practical substitute. More gluten-free baking tips can be found at this link:

Happy baking!

In the mixer method it never tells you when TO add the yeast. Only when not to.

See the second sentence under Mixer Method: “Heat water to 110º to 115ºF and pour into mixing bowl. Add yeast and allow to hydrate for 5 minutes.”

Happy baking!

This recipe is absolutely wonderful! I have tried many different recipes and this one is by far the best tasting one! It’s like having “real” bread again. And no more tiny slices. This made a good sized loaf of bread. Thank you so much for the “normal” tasting GF sandwich bread.
