    After trying two recipes I am frustrated with this book! I’ve made the basic white bread, then the loaf with a banana. Both were flops. I noticed that the amount of flour seemed to be way off in the bread with banana. It was a sloppy mess without the addition of a lot of flour. Or could it be the addition of gluten?? Maybe I’ll try one more, but that will be it.

    I was reading through this book and noted recipes for Gluten free bread. One of the recipes listed “White Spelt Flour Bread” This recipe also included oat bran. Further reading found that the author suggested Kamut as well.

    The simple truth is that both Spelt and Kamut are in fact wheats. It is a violation of FDA regulations to claim such products are wheat free. Recently, January 06, a popular bakery was raided for doing just that.

    This book simply perpetuates fallacy and risks the health of the reader.

    The jury is still out on this item. I have not tried enough recipes to make a determination.

    …but almost all the recipes in this book require gluten. There are books available that include recipes with bread flour, but no gluten. It seems that the gluten in bread flour is enough for those recipes. Why would I go to all that trouble to get gluten which is not a naturally found ingredient in ordinary kitchens. And by the way, not everybody who uses Amazon lives in US. Gluten is NOT a convenient ingredient and makes a simple white bread unnecessarily expensive and inconvenient to make. There are very good alternatives.

    After looking carefully at specific aspects of this book, I’m not only able to agree with the other reviewers about the problems they found but also can identify two very fundamental flaws: 1) Hensperger gets the “order of adding ingredients” backwards for the Zojirushi. Did she get the others right? 2) In many recipes she says “unplug the machine” at one point or other in the process, making it very clear that she’s not familiar with how machines work….or the simple expedient of pressing the reset/cancel button to achieve the desired effect. When an author is so far off on basics like this, there’s no point in wasting time finding out about the other mistakes, or in wasting money on the book. There are number of bread machine books out there that give the diversity of recipes Hensperger attempts, and do a far better job.
