Another gluten free bread experiment
This time, I used a recipe from the King Arthur flour company website: gluten free bread recipe and used their mixed all purpose flour in the recipe. Like the KA bread mix, this batch didn't rise like a traditional loaf would, and this batch was a bit flatter than my previous efforts, in part, I suspect, to some aging yeast I am using up. DD sampled the bread heal, deamed it very good.
So, I trudge on. I used approx 1/2 of a box of the GF flour (on SALE @ $5.49/box) so call it $2.75 plus the cost of additional ingredients already on hand (Xantham gum is an expensive ingredient but was one of the freebies I got at Whole Foods ). In total, I am guestimating that this particular loaf cost me $3 to make vs using the aforementioned bread mix (another WF freebie)@ $6.99. The bread is also significantly larger than the mini loaves sold at stores for $3.99 and up.
