If you haven’t tried this brand of gluten free baking kits, you really need to get yourself to Sainsbury’s and buy one! The bread is the most ‘bread-like’ density and texture that I have tried yet from a gluten free kit! That’s not to say that I don’t like the other ones I’ve tried (I do, I love them all very much… anything that can make being gluten free tasty, easy and fills me up is a complete win!) but these kits just had that extra wow-factor!
So how do I make the bread? Easy – put the ingredients into a bowl, mix them up with whatever additions are needed (one kit needed an egg or egg substitute, the other didn’t), mix up really well, leave to rise if the recipe calls for it (again, one did, one didn’t!) and then bake in a lightly greased regular or silicone loaf tin.
Once removed from the oven, allow to cool before you cut the bread. I know it’s tempting to cut into the freshly baked bread, but believe me, this bread isn’t going to lose it’s delicious ‘home made’ taste once it’s cooled (my main problem with home made gluten free bread!) And, once cooled, it stays springy and fresh and doesn’t actually need warming up to serve (something I find I have to do with gluten free bread as it can be quite dense once it cools – not this one!!)
This bread makes great toast, delicious sandwiches and my ultimate test – it works for both sweet AND savoury toppings! I am one very happy gluten free girl! It’s so lovely to find a kit that makes life a bit easier, for those moments when you don’t have enough time to be making bread from scratch.
Overall, a fab loaf in both white AND brown. I’d definitely recommend going out to buy a packet and have one in the store cupboard too! I’m heading off to find some more very soon…
