Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Bread Mix

Posted on | February 26, 2007 | 1 Comment


I was unsure at how this mix would turn out. It  mostly bean flours instead of the traditional rice flours. But hey, I am willing to experiment and try something new.

The mix was easy to use with my automatic mixer-3 minutes on medium high and it was ready for the pan. The dough was thick and sticky, and was a bit difficult to spread into all four corners of the pan. An oiled spatula was very helpful in completing this step.

The mix rises nicely and bakes to a pretty brown color. When sliced, I found it was full of small holes and crevices, not a smooth texture. It consistency bordered on spongy, but sliced well with minimal crumbling. The taste was quite bland and definitely nothing special. I chose to store the sliced bread in my fridge wrapped in plastic. However, this did not prevent the bread from quickly drying out and becoming more bland- if that’s even possible.

 This bread is good for high flavor sandwiches that need a neutral balance, but don’t expect to much from this mix, it’s nothing to brag about. I paid $5.19 for the mix from a natural foods store, and even though it was “OK”, I’m not sure if I’ll buy it again.

    I agree with everything stated in the above review, except I wouldn’t even give it 1 star. I couldn’t eat this bread, not toasted or covered with peanut butter. It was bland, but kept “coming back to haunt me”. Even covered in peanut butter or honey, or toasted, it was a disappointment. I through out 3/4 of the loaf, and I will not be buying it again.
