Hawaiian Bread from the Breadmaker–Yum!

You know I try everything once I get a recipe that works.  So the last recipe was for handmade Hawaiian bread.  Good but could it be easier?  Could I make it in the bread machine?  Why, yes.  I can and so can you. I use a Cuisinart Automatic Breadmaker because it has a gluten-free function.  This function only allows the dough to rise once–just as you should for gluten-free breads.  The structure in the bread–not having gluten–just isn’t strong enough to get a good second rise.

This recipe makes a two pound loaf that is golden and beautiful.  Give it a try!

    Dense and small bread leads me to think you have too much flour in the loaf. Are you weighing the gluten-free flour. This is an important step in gluten-free baking. One cup should weigh 124 g. I would also check that the yeast is fresh. Too much flour makes bread dense; old yeast makes bread small. Again, too much flour can make bread crumble, so I recommend that you weigh the flour for all recipes. A food scale can cost under $25 and is a very important part of a gluten-free baking kitchen. Be sure to use the gluten-free program on your bread machine. Note that the Hawaiian bread in this recipe is very tasty because of the pineapple juice, but is is not as light and fluffy as gluten Hawaiian bread. I hope this information helps you in your baking efforts. Please let me know how it turns out next time.
