Gluten Free Almost Danish Rye Bread

"When my sister recently was put on a gluten and lactose free diet, I went all over the Internet looking for a rye bread for her. This is what I found at hindbæ It is so good, that my DB asked if I would make it for him, too. The dough will be thick and sticky like cold oatmeal, don't worry about that it will bake up fine. So I do, using regular flour though. The taste is fantastic, a little hard to slice. Freezes well."

My beloved sister Lise passed away on December 3 2008, so this year I didn't do all my usual Christmas cooking and baking. Frank and I moved to a bigger apartment on January 1, and once I can see the floor for boxes, I will get back to cooking. I look forward to re-visit with my wonderful Zaar friends again. I have not been much on Zaar last summer and Fall, due to my sister, and father's illness. We have now come to the hard part, they have stopped all treatment on Lise, and we can only try to be there for her, her family and each other. Then England seems such a long way away from Denmark. Grown and multicultural woman with a passion for cooking and especially learning about others holidays, traditions and recipes. I have lived 18 years in the USA and have grown children there so I do go there regular. Am an accomplished mural painter and collector of Japanese art and furniture. My DBF say I am addicted to Zaar, he is probably right, apart from having to look of idears for dinner, or lunch or snacks or chocolade dressed up as something else, I also have to check out my wonderful cooking partners in crime, and very very funny friends at Zaar. I have learned so much from you all. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
