  1. Foccacia IS rather flat and doughier than regular bread - when sliced and toasted in the oven with toppings it is superb. If you want more colour on the top, use a whole egg wash on top. Wonderful recipe and I will be passing it on to my coeliac daughter and son - both good cooks.
  2. I can give this five stars because it is a fantastic recipe IF you have a suitable gluten free flour blend and like Italian seasoning. So before you attempt to make this, please consider whether you like the seasoning and your flour qualifies as suitable. Which means that the flour blend must have thickeners like xanthan in it. I used Schaer Brot Mix B which contains xanthan, psyllium husks and methyl cellulose so the flour is nearly as sticky as normal wheat flour. This will not work if you just use a plain mix of rice flour and cornstarch!! If you make your own flour blend, please add xanthan or guar gum and ground chia seeds or psyllium husks to it, otherwise it will not work without egg.<br/>I had no roll pans so just used muffin tins which worked great. The amounts of flour and water worked perfectly with my flour blend, only I had to remove the rolls from the tins after 15 minutes and bake them for another 10 minutes without tins.<br/>Taste and texture are fantastic. Soft and very flavourful, I barely could stop eating them. This will be a keeper! Thanks for posting!<br/>Made for Spring into Spring with Garlic and Soy of the Diabetic Forum.
  3. These did not turn out for me. The rolls were very doughy and I did not like the taste of the Italian seasoning. Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.
  4. made this bread it is moist and has good flavor. I was worried at first because the dough is very runny, but it cooked well. I will make this again.
  5. These turned out just like a wheat containing focaccia! Lovely texture and flavor, though I will personally leave out the Italian seasoning next time, since I'm not a huge fan of rosemary. Thanks for sharing katti! Made for PAC Spring 2009


I'm an enthusiastic young chef who loves to experiment!! I love cooking because i have a multitude of food allergies including all nuts and some legumes, as well as celiac disease. Cooking allows me to enjoy the foods i love without worry! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> How I rate recipes: 5 star - WOW! This recipe was really good and exceeded my expectations. I made no or little changes to the recipe and will definitely make it again. 4 star - A very good recipe. I quite enjoyed it, but had to make a few changes here and there. All in all, it met my expectations. I will probably make it again. 3 star - An ok recipe. I liked it a bit, but had to make major changes. It may have a good flavour, but the texture was off or something. Usually I don't make three star recipes again. 2 star - I didn't enjoy this recipe. The flavour and texture was WAY off and so were the directions. I will not make this recipe again. 1 star - I don't give one stars! I think they are too mean!
