It is hard to believe that something as ordinary as a loaf of bread could nearly bring tears to my eyes - But that is what happened the other night when I sliced into the loaf of fresh-baked bread I had just pulled from the oven. I can't take full credit - It's based on a recipe by a woman named Laurie on the Celiac.com forums. But this is really some stellar bread - Hands down the best gluten-free bread I've had. It stays pliable and delicious without freezing or toasting. Don't skip out on the flaxseeds, they add nutrition and texture without too much "flaxy" taste.
This french bread is amazing!! It tastes so similar to the wheat containing french bread. Plus it freezes wonderfully!!! It's crusty on the outside, and soft and tender within. It is fabulous alone, or made as little brushetta', using 'Joanne's Creamy Brushetta' recipe(#108383).You can make it from start to finish in about one hour!!
This is one of my kids real favourites. I'll often throw in more apricots and almonds than the recipe calls for.
This is a large loaf and can be reduced in size by multiplying all ingredients by 2/3 and reducing the cooking time by 10 minutes.
This recipe was posted for a request for gluten&lactose free bread. Quoting the website that this recipe was taken from, "This recipe comes from Glenna Vance at Red Star who was looking for a moist and tasty gluten-free bread that reduces the cholesterol (no egg yolks) and is also lactose-free. This is a real gift for gluten-free bread bakers!" I'm not really sure of the prep time
