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.
Â 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.
