Product Review: Chebe All-Purpose Bread Mix

Posted on | December 23, 2011 | 4 Comments

This complimentary gluten free  bread mix was provided  by Chebe. This is the same company that made the original cheese bread mix that I like so much. Would this mix turn out as well as the cheese bread?

Preparing this mix was almost identical to the cheese bread mix. I added 2 T oil, 2 eggs, and 1/4c milk. The dough appeared to be very dry, but after kneading it, the dough came together nicely. It was very easy to work with. When mixed,  it became more elastic and stuck together well. This was a nice feature, as gluten free bread dough can be tricky – and messy- to work with.

I separated the gluten free bread dough into four pieces, and shaped each piece into 4 inch diameter patties. Something to keep in mind as you shape each dough patty is that the dough does not rise or expand in the oven. So, make sure it looks like you want it to- what you see is what you get! Whatever shape you put in the oven will remain as such. After baking the bread for 2o minutes in a 375 degree oven and letting it cool, I sliced them in half. This was a little tricky because the bread is fairly thin, only about 1/2 inch thick.

I tried this gluten free bread two ways. First, I ate one half with peanut butter spread on top. The bread complemented the peanut butter well. The flavor of the bread did not overpower it at all. The bread did not break, or crumble while spreading on the peanut butter. Next, I made a BLT. The bread held up well. It did not fall apart from the moisture of the tomato or mayonnaise and remained in one piece. Amazing!  The one negative is that the bread did mask the taste of the BLT a bit. Chebe made the bread dense, which helps it to hold together. However, this also made my sandwich more bready, and not as flavorful.

Even with that being said, this is in my top three for GF sandwich bread. It”s a winner!

    On the Chebe All-Purpose Bread Mix box it says you can use 1/4 cup water or 1/4 cup milk/milk substitute. Have you ever tried it with water? Or if using milk, almond milk? I was just wondering about the consistency or the difference.

    I have not tried with water or almond milk. If you try it, let us know how it turns out.

    I’m allergic to milk….It works extremely well with water or apple juice in place of the milk
