Gluten-Free Breads: Yeast or Baking Powder?

My problem is that I haven't quite convinced myself of that. It's what I need to do.

Yes, pizza and focaccia works better than most breads. I should make focaccia more but it would be nice to have bread for sandwiches. In my case, it's karma. I always secretly sneered at people who went around complaining about allergies, so I get celiac disease. LOL

Believe me, I know exactly what you mean! Edible is an improvement over many GF products. I've had a good GF day when I don't spit the bread out. LOL

No, but I just checked and Whole Foods here carries them so I'll definitely give them a try. I have tried dozens of recipes and combinations of flours and some are almost passable but that's about the best I can say.

Thanks for the suggestions!

One comment. I use a lot of Bob's Red Mill products; many of them are excellent. BUT Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour and many of their mixes contain bean flour which, in the opinion of some people including myself, tastes just plain nasty. UDI Bread isn't bad but like most gluten-free bread is very expensive. Truthfully, I have yet to find many really satisfactory recipes for gluten free baking. I'm still trying. It is darn hard to find real replacements for wheat flour.
