The great bread experiment

Last week I picked up a few things to try out some gluten free recipes. We've been trying (some harder than others) to go gluten free for the past couple months. My husband has a wheat sensitivity, so we've been mostly wheat-free for a year or so, but finally decided to make the leap and try gluten free. I sort of gave up on baking for a little while, but have decided I'd like to take another crack at it. When we first cut out wheat I did a little baking with rice flour and wasn't very happy with it. Rice flour has a sort of sandy texture, so it really needs to mixed with some other things to have a pleasant texture. This is last week's bread. It's all gone now. I'll post a recipe soon, but I want to give it another go before I put anything up.


  1. Have you discovered Raw Brownies? 1C dates, 1 C pecans, 1/4 cocoa powder, and 1 t vanilla. Blend in the food processor, press into a dish, cut, and enjoy. They're a hit with my GF husband and everyone else who has tried them.

    I'll be watching for your bread recipe. :)

  2. Oh, that sounds so yummy! I'll have to add those to my list for today.

  3. Hey Sylvia! I survived the winter and am getting back to visiting friends blogs. Your quilt is looking great and Eliza is getting so big!
    Tackling bread is on my to-do list this year. Haven't gotten the nerve up quite yet or found the time.
    I started a new blog and would love it if you came to visit! Have a blessed day!


  4. I'm impressed with your gluten free baking!
    When we went wheat free for a while, well, gluten too, I pretty much just stuck to meat and potatoes, fresh fruit and veggies... it seemed so much easier to just cut out all grain goods...

  5. It is easier to go without, but my husband was missing bread and cookies and all sorts of wonderful things, so I decided to give it another go.
