The Eighth Wonder of the World – Miss Roben’s Soft Bread Mix

With allergies to wheat, soy, milk and eggs, breads are one of the most difficult food issues for my family. There are lots of gluten-free choices out there, but most prepared breads contain eggs, and many have soy and milk ingredients.

When it comes to breads that can be used for sandwiches, the truly allergen-free bread choices that I have found so far have been things that need to be kept in the freezer, and work best when toasted. More on those allergen-free breads that work at a later date.

Right now I am in heaven, because Miss Roben’s has just delivered what I think might be the eighth wonder of the world – a soft bread mix that really truly looks, tastes, and behaves like traditional bread.

I took advantage of their introductory offer, and made my first loaf yesterday. The mix (which is primarily brown rice flour-based) includes a quick yeast packet. Even though this is a fluffy bread, no rise time is needed.

The recipe I used was:

1 package Miss Roben’s Soft Bread Mix Finally (with the yeast)
1 cup Living Harvest unsweetened original hemp milk
1/3 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp Ener-G egg replacer mixed with 4 Tbsp water

Forty minutes later I had a perfect loaf. This particular recipe combination resulted in Italian-like bread, and could easily be sliced for sandwiches. I thought this loaf would last a few days, but everyone liked it so much it disappeared very quickly!

I can’t wait to play with this mix and try different combinations.

For a limited time Allergy Grocer is offering the new mix at an introductory price, and they are running a contest to find the perfect name for this great product.
