This gluten-free bread is one of the best bread recipes I’ve tried so far! I also added some tips and tricks on how to make the perfect gluten-free, fluffy toast loaf.
As you probably know, I recently eliminated gluten from my diet. I discovered that my mom was gluten intolerant and I also had some symptoms, so I decided to completely give up gluten products. It wasn’t as hard as you may think. I wasn’t a huge fan of bread anyway. I’ll just have to be more careful with processed foods (like store-bought veg spreads and stuff like that) as they usually contain gluten.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a wide range of gluten-free products here. It’s pretty hard to even find gluten-free flour mixes! So, it’s going to be a little bit of a challenge until we get used to this lifestyle.
To make it easier, the whole family went gluten-free! We eliminated all gluten products from our pantry and decided to try some gluten-free bread recipes. I don’t like baking, so my dad is in charge of making gluten-free bread. This is his gluten-free bread recipe and it’s actually the third gluten-free bread he made. I was amazed by how delicious gluten-free bread recipes are!! You can barely tell the difference between a normal bread and a gluten-free one.
We used a gluten-free flour mix. Until we discover the best flour combination, we’ll be using this mix. We’re in the testing process. Also, you have to try the turmeric + olive oil coating and the gluten-free breadcrumbs crust. These are the details that matter! It will turn a regular gluten-free bread in a delicious treat!
Also, I made a Gluten-Free Baking board on Pinterest. Check it out!
