How to make gluten-free bread rise

Slide1

Gluten-Free Yeast Bread

This is the best way I have found to make gluten-free bread rise. Here is the PDF of the presentation or see pictures below for more details. Let me know if you can get it to work. Good luck!

20200409_160419

Equipment:

  • Oven preheated to 350 degrees
  • Medium Pot with lid
  • ~1.5-quart bread pan
  • Saran Wrap
  • Stovetop

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Cold Water
  • 1/4 cups Corn Meal
  • 1 ¾ cup + 1 cup Gluten-Free Flour
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum (if not in flour already… doesn’t hurt if you add more)
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbs Yeast

Instructions:

  • Put 2 Cups of Cold Water in a medium pot (it must have a lid!)
  • Add ¼ Cup Corn Meal
  • Add 1 ¾ Cups Gluten-Free Flour
  • Mix well with a whisk
  • The mixture will look like milk
  • Put the pot on the stove on medium heat
  • Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to scrape and mix while heating
  • Heating up the GF flour changes it somehow so that it can rise
  • Keep mixing on the heat until the mixture can stick together like sticky dough (~5 mins)
  • Do not leave on the stove without mixing or else it will burn!
  • Turn off and remove from heat
  • Immediately after removing the pot from heat add these ingredients to the pot
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/3 cup oil
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • ¾ tsp salt
    • 1 tsp xanthan gum (if the flour doesn’t have it)
  • Mix well until pudding texture
  • The dough should be cool enough (~100°) to add 1 Tablespoon of yeast
  • Cover the pot with a lid and let rise (30 mins)
  • Add 1 more cup of gluten-free flour
  • Mix until flour is incorporated into the dough
  • Transfer dough to bread pan (~1.5 quarts) and cover with saran wrap
  • Let rise a second time (30 to 45 mins)
  • Take off saran wrap and bake at 350 degrees for 27 mins

Free Simple Come Follow Me: Book of Mormon 2020 Reading Schedule

Dallin and I were recently called to team-teach Gospel Doctrine Sunday School at our church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is doing the Come Follow Me curriculum. For the year 2020, the entire church is studying The Book of Mormon. I wanted to print out a simple reading schedule and I couldn’t find one anywhere. I spent a long time making this so I thought I could share it online with all of you!

Christmas Card 2019

So instead of sending all you guys this Christmas card in January (like we did last year… haha!) I decided to get it out by Thanksgiving this year!

This year started by finishing Dallin’s interviews for residency training: Albuquerque, Portland, Pheonix, and Tucson! We added on another 4,624 miles to our trip. We were on the road for three months traveling a total of 19,324 miles and completing interviews at twelve Universities. The kids loved it! We took the kids coast to coast to coast to coast! It was a lot of work but we are so glad we did it. We got to spend quality and quantity time with our kids. Both of our older boys were told to write their favorite memory as a school assignment and they both wrote about different aspects of our trip.

In March, we found out that Dallin “matched” at Indiana University-Purdue University for pediatric residency training. We found a house and bought it in April! In June, we packed everything up in a big 26-foot Penske moving truck. Dallin drove that huge truck the final 1,500 miles to our new home. We bought our house as an internet purchase so we didn’t see it in person until we walked in the door. The kids were professional travelers by the time of the move and they were super good on the moving trip. However, driving out of Utah was one of the hardest things I (May Bo) has ever had to do. Even writing about it reminds me of all the emotions I had that day!

When we got to Indiana we were greeted by friendly neighbors. To say that we love it here may be an understatement. We love the house, the neighborhood, the friends, the schools, and our church! Dallin LOVES his residency program. We feel super blessed.

Unfortunately, in March Dallin’s grandma passed away and then in April Dallin’s father passed away.

In October, we welcomed Cumorah to our family. Now we are adjusting to having a newborn around and enjoying all her cuteness.

We decided to ask the kids what they are grateful for and this is what they said:

Micah: My friends, my family, Jesus, Heavenly Father, The Book of Mormons, Veterans, People who died for our country, the computer, technology, the prophets because they teach us what is right

Quentin: Mom, dad, friends, family, our home, Christmas tree, video games, Santa, scripture study because it makes me feel lots of joy, toys, church because it makes feel peaceful

Emily: Jesus Christ died, pink blankey, Jesus is alive, sleeping, eating cereal, pink fan with butterflies, pillows that don’t fight, sharing, computer

Jakey: Toys, cars, trains, mimi, momma, dada, Micah, Quentin, Emily, baby, tree, cereal, chicken, apple, bike, nose, ears, eyes, hair, ice cream, belly button, toes, Jesus

Cumorah: milk, nini, mom, blankeys, being rocked (This is what the other kids thought she was grateful for… haha!)

We miss you guys in Utah. We also miss our friends we met coast-to-coast and overseas. We hope to hear an update from you all soon!

Love, The Hubbards

Baby’s Name

Her name is Cumorah. She is named after the Hill Cumorah in Palmyra, NY. The reason why this hill is significant to the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that it is the place where The Book of Mormon was discovered. The Book of Mormon is a history that tells of a family from Jerusalem who came to the Americas and their struggles. The book tells how this family overcame hard times by following the teachings of Jesus Christ. We read this book to help us get closer to God and to overcome our own struggles.

Back-to-School!

I woke up early to make cinnamon rolls to celebrate the first day of school but they were too excited and didn’t eat much of it. I hope they won’t be starving today but at least they drank their milk! Micah = 3rd Grade. Quentin = 1st Grade. Emily = A wannabee kindergartener but she’s only 3 years old. She spent 10 minutes crying at the bus stop after all the kids got on and left. She got her backpack and insisted I pack her a lunch. Poor girl, she would have snuck on the bus if I let her.

Indianapolis Indiana Temple

This is our new temple! This is the Indianapolis Indiana Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Dallin and I are so blessed to still have a temple close by so we can meet our weekly temple trip. It’s definitely not the same as the 8-minute drive that we use to have but it is close enough. Every time I’ve driven to the temple it reminds me of the song that says “Over the river and through the woods…” because I am very literally driving over the river and through the woods to get to the temple. HAHA! It is a beautiful drive. I wish I can show you all!
