How Do You Successfully Make Gluten Free Bread?
After being on the gluten-free diet for nearly 8 months, I have not yet given up on making gluten-free bread. Bread, that is, that couldn’t possibly be mistaken for hockey pucks. Thanks to Elise Harris for the recipe! Here’s her link that I started with: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1G94nh9gio Her recipe came out pretty good, but the consistency of the bread is still a bit dense, as gluten free breads tend to come out that way. I just purchased a variety of gluten-free flours and I finally splurged for xantham gum, which is said to be a good substitute for gluten. But it’s expensive! I admit this recipe requires more ingredients, more steps and more preparation time…but I think it’s worth it! …And it makes for *excellent* french toast! At any rate, here’s Elise’s recipe, modified… Mix these ingredients first: 2 large eggs 3 T sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup ground flax seed or ground nuts (optional) 3/4 cup dried cranberries or other dried fruit (optional) Start to heat water
