*Product Review* Bob’s Wonderful Homemade GF Bread Mix

My friend Patricia was over here the other day, helping me get through all the notes on supplement dosages for Zander.  She heard a sound in the kitchen. 

“Is that a bread-maker or something?”

“I wish it was, but no, we don’t have one.  That was the dishwasher.” 

“Oh.  Do you want one? I have one in my trunk you can have.”

And with the planets aligned, we got a bread machine.  Amazing, no?  I just so happened to have a package of bread mix I’d been meaning to make, but the thought of adding more processes to the super computer assembly line that is my every day was too much.  And so, it sat.  Until now!  Huurah!

Product Name: Bob’s Gluten Free Homemade Wonderful Bread Mix (Best Product Name EVER)

Bought from: Donated from someone giving up GFCF diet (Woo!)

Price: Retails for $4.49 per one pound package OR $16.16 for a 4-pc case on Bob’s website

 

I followed the recipe on the back of the package for a bread machine loaf.  I used melted coconut oil (has yeast-fighting properties) for the fat, and Hemp milk for the liquid.  I went ahead and used the egg called for, as we haven’t seen a problem with them as of yet. I added the liquids (beaten well) to the machine’s reservoir, then the mix on top, topped with the yeast from the included packet.  Snapping the lid closed with a satisfying “klunk”, I chose the options for our loaf (size, cycle, crust color), and sat back to wait for the loaf to be finished.  Meaning, I went to the sink to get the afternoon’s 2 hours of dishes washed just in time to dirty them all for dinner.  Wheee! 

3 hours later, the loaf was finished.  I was in awe.  I spoke softly to the bread machine, whispering sweet nothings about its fantastical abilities to provide nourishing sustenance for my family.  This would be a good place to mention Orlando Bloom, given the whispering of sweet nothings, but I’ve promised that I won’t beat the dead horse that is my enduring love for he who is more beautiful than any living creature should be, for fear that the others will attack him in an attempt to extract the elixir of his supremacy.  So I won’t mention it.   

We’ve been eating cinnamon toast at breakfast for a week- it has been blisssssss.  This bread is so good!  It has a perfect crumb, a lovely clean yeast-y taste, and a great crust.  My only complaint is that you don’t get that ‘I am so cool that I bake my own bread’ smell filling up your home with the bread machine.  So, I just tell everyone that I am, indeed, that cool. 

Here’s some (bad, sorry) images of our lunch today, peanut butter and sour cherry jam.

But, you don’t have to take our word for it- Rachel tried some as she was sitting on my babies last night, and she proclaimed it as good as gluten filled bread.  And so it shall be known.  Buy it!  Make it!  Let the crumbs fall where they may!
