I am worse at gluten free baking than your average slug. And I don’t know if you know this, but slugs can’t bake. They can’t even hold a spoon. It’s a real problem. My GF baking attempts (INCLUDING pre-prepared mixes) have only ever resulted in another addition to what has been a frankly relentless series of crushing failures. Every attempt followed the same melancholy pattern: foolish optimism, closely followed by utter disappointment. And then I found this…
This gluten free bread mix is idiot proof. I did it. ME! Imagine that. It’s easy as pie too. All you do is whack the powdered packet into a bowl, add the yeast (also supplied in the box) mix it up with 450ml of warm water and leave it in a warm spot for 30 minutes to prove. I chose the balcony, because it was a sunny day and I didn’t expect this to work. It gives me great delight to tell you that I was wrong, and also bread can prove on a balcony. Who knew?
Once it has done its growing in the sun you put the goopy un-dough like mixture into a bread tin and bake for around 30 minutes. And guess what… out comes bread! I know, I’m still in shock.
I made a mini loaf and four rolls. They were all brilliant. They looked and tasted like real bread. Alright so the crusts were so crusty I nearly chipped a tooth, but otherwise it was bloody brilliant.
