Re Millet Bread Recipe: from Scott F on 2006-08-05

I keep trying to get anything even close to Sami's bread with the listed ingredients. Not even close.

Any help appreciated. What would you do with these ingredients?

organic millet flour
brown rice flour
aluminum free baking powder
sea salt
organic grounded flax seed

I can also notice flax seeds and millet "peppered' throughout the bread.

Then this...

Processed in a non Gluten free facility. May contain traces of Gluten, Wheat or Yeast.

Must be some pretty big traces or is this possible? Thanks in advance!

I called Sami's bakery and was told the reason they don't advertise "gluten free" is because it is baked in the same pans as other gluten bread. I was eating it for a while and does not seem to bother me, but I am not a big bread eater.

Millet Bread
gluten, dairy and egg free, directions for a programmable bread machine

1-1/8 to 1-3/8 cup water (depending on humidity and how finely ground the flours are)
3 tbs honey
3 tbs oil
2 tsp cider vinegar (might need less if your water is not very basic; mine is)
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 tbs xanthan gum
1 cup millet flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 cup tapioca flour
1 package active yeast (not rapid rise)
Sift flours and xanthan.
Add first 5 ingredients (water through salt) to bread machine; add flour.
Make a well in the middle of the flour and add yeast.
Program machine for following times
20 minutes preheat
20 minutes knead
75 minutes rise
55 minutes bake
Notes Be sure to use only 1 kneading cycle. Check the dough as it begins to knead to see if you need to add more water (or more flour if it's too wet). The dough should look somewhat wet; should be shiny and swirl up above the dough beaters when it's kneading, but not be too thin.

I also lived in Florida and bought DeLand Bread and loved it. I have tried to bake yeast free millet bread with the ingredients listed on their bread but have never even come close. Have any hints? I have used white spelt flour with very good results, but I understand that spelt is not truly gluten free. Thanks

I am also trying to duplicate Sami's Bread recipe. If anyone is successful, please pass it on. I will try the recipes mentioned throughout this posting and report back. Could also try the website livingwithout.com.

I bought a cook book that might help you parents with young kids. It is "The kid-frienly ADHD & Autism Cookbook" The Ultimate guide to the gluten-free, casein-free diet. by Pamela J. Compart, MD and Dana Laake, RH, MS, LDN. I bought it for the recipes, have yet to try any but thought it might help some of you. It also comtains recipes with no glluten, milk, soy, egg, corn and nuts. Hope it helps.

I am so glad I came across this site. I too have a 7 year old who can not tolerate:

eggs, nuts, wheat, milk, soy, as well as a host of other things. I have found the bread "Food for Life" Millet bread (can be found at Whole Foods or ordered online) is an excellent gluten free bread. Also, have found the book, Hidden Food Allergies, to be incredibly helpful as far as supplements my child needs to help her body absorb minerals/vitamins better, etc. I have also taken her to an acupuncturist who specializes in a technique called NAET, Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques. It is a technique that is difficult to understand from a scientific viewpoint but I have seen it work wonders with my daughter. She can now eat a little wheat without problems.

Where can I buy xanthum gum? I am in the Western US.

Re: Millet Bread Recipe: from Alysha on 2007-08-04

Xanthum gum can be found at Whole Foods or other health food store - its a white powder generally found in the baking section. Its made from corn.

I've been playing with millet and came up with this recipe for something like cornbread. I'm on a very restricted diet (Sears elimination) right now so no refined sugar, no eggs, no gluten, no milk.

1 1/2 c. millet flour (sifted)

1/2 c. arrowroot flour

4 heaping tbs pear butter (or can use 1/4 c. sugar or apple sauce)

2 tsp. baking powder (I use a recipe that combines baking soda, cream of tartar, and arrowroot flour)

1/2 tsp salt

1 c. water

1/4 c. vegetable oil (I used sunflower)

1 tbs psyllium husks mixed with 3 tbs water (warning this is also a laxative and so may have some side effects)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 8 or 9 inch sq. pan. Combine dry ingredients. Stir in water, oil, pear butter, and psyllium husks/water mixture until moistened. Pour into pan and bake or 20-25 minutes or until brown (I used a toothpick to test for doneness).
