Buttermilk Hamburger Buns

We used to buy our beloved Gluten Free Potato Hamburger Buns  and Bison Burgers from the Healthy Monkey Cafe when we lived on the Coast.  Now the new menu indicates that there are traces of FLOUR in addition to Potato Flour…soooo disappointing, what betrayal.  When my Hubby said a clerk informed him of this…I was in utter disbelief, now it’s in Black and White on their menu.

Wilton spring form pans, tuna and salmon tins

Well, here’s the Bridesmaid’s choice, Buttermilk HB Buns, that I found in a Gluten Free & More Magazine.  Ginger, Baking Powder on top of lots of Yeast caught my eye.   You need to make Rebecca Reilly’s GF Flour Blend first.  Its a pain pulling out my mix master, so I just activate the yeast and mix by hand instead.

I divide the batter into 6 Wilton mini springform pans and sometimes Tuna or Salmon tins.   They rise well using my oven’s Bread Proofing setting.  Hubby likes to split and toast the buns for his Eggwiches and Hamburgers.

GF Pumpernickel Bread

My husband loves Caraway Seeds and Molasses so he gave a Thumbs Up for this GF Pumpernickel Bread.  Crusty on the outside, soft on the inside and not crumbly like most gluten-free breads.  I don’t have to use a knife or turn my toaster upside down to remove my slice intact.

Note:  The original Nature’s Fairy Recipe uses 3 Tsp of Yeast.  But if you live in higher altitudes, try 2 Tsp and don’t  “Set It and Forget It!”. Definitely don’t leave the house until you’ve safely made it past the proofing cycle, especially if you’re using a Bread Machine.  This picture shows bread made in a 9×5″ loaf pan minus a bit of batter that I lost on the bottom of the oven during proofing !

GF DF Whole Grain Bread from Kim’s Kitchen

Upon surfing YouTube, I stumbled across this “Gluten Free Bread Recipe – The BEST you’ll ever taste”.  No matter how many new recipes I try or how many store-bought loaves I buy, this is still my favourite ! Watch the video or just click on “About” to see the original recipe. If you agree you can subscribe to her channel, “Einekleinewitch“.

I don’t fuss over it as much as Kim does. Just Set It & Forget It ! Fresh, tasty bread in 2 hours on the Rapid Bake – Light Crust cycle ! You’re supposed to let it cool on a rack for an hour but FAT CHANCE that’s gonna happen ! It’s great toasted with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil spread on top and excellent for sandwiches as it slices so well.

I discovered 2 other versions that Kim’s Kitchen published on her GF Real Food Blog. One is the ‘simplified’ version with fewer ingredients. The other offers up various substitution ideas. Note: I use the original recipe but omit the Quinoa Flour. I love Quinoa in Tabbouleh Salads but Quinoa Flour is bitter, even in small quantities. I substitute Quinoa Flour with Teff Flour or one of 3 flour blends.

Print my PDF to see all 3 versions of GF DF Whole Grain Bread from Kim’s Kitchen. It tastes so good, slices well and the Millet, Sorghum, Teff flours,  Coconut Milk & Oil offers high protein and fibre. Try it out and let me know what you think. If your FAVE is better than mine, you have to share !
