Hi everyone,

I make my own gluten free bread and have been experimenting with buckwheat flour and this is made with 1/2 buckwheat flour and 1/2 gf brown bread flour. I always add seeds to my bread both inside and to top them, I made a honey glaze by adding some hot water to a tea spoon of honey and brushed the top with it, a glaze enhances the taste of the crust helps the seeds to stick and gives a lovely colour.

This is 1/2 a large bap that I made with a large loaf and I stuffed it with mixed salad strong cheddar cheese and gf yeast extract and it hit the mark.

For any budding bread bakers out there please posts photo's of your home made bread. πŸ₯–

Thank you Zest, I would buy good quality wholemeal bread if I could eat gluten, so its been pushed on me but I do like baking bread the most.

Thanks as well for posting a link with the others wonderful home baked bread. 😊

Great thanks for the love your Pet's Day. He is going to be remembered as all our dear one's. He held a true spot so faithful and loving. Something for you to laugh he was on a Keto diet, helped his MRSA he had before cancer and through treatment he was grain free and I made all his meat grass fed mixed with veggie's and frozen in daily containers. I'll try and get on a loaf for you my husband has been begging will have time now that I'm not making dog food.

Looks delicious Jerry; mouth watering and the bread looks like bread.

I've been missing bread so much since I went glutenfree a year ago. I'm the crazy person that stares at people as they take each bite. I've tried so many store GF breads and they are horrendous! I'd love to try and make my own; do you have a ingredients list and recipe you could DM me. If successfully made all credit to you but if a disaster happens it's all on me πŸ˜†.

Hey you're not crazy, a couple of months after being diagnosed with coeliac I had a dream there was a giant loaf dangling in front of me and I woke up sitting upright trying to grab thats how crazy missing bread drives us.

I use the same basic recipe and just tweak it, I've been making buckwheat bread with 1/2 GF brown bread mix and 1/2 buckwheat and thats really nice and I just use the same amount of flour dried ingredients.

I buy Doves farm GF flour from my local whole food shop and the plain is fantastic for biscuits.

I also let the yeast wake up and don't use the fast yeast which usually contains gluten.

There are quite a few gluten free recipes in the GF Topic section too.

So good luck and I'll be interested in how you get on. 😊

Thank you so much and sorry for the late response, I didn’t know I had a reply.

I’m glad to know I’m not the only crazy bread person haha, it’s amazing what bread can do to you.

Some cruel family member brought in bag with half a French stick on Monday. I had no idea what was inside but as soon as I opened it the waft of fresh bread filled my nostrils and visions of a family trip to France, eating a ham and coleslaw baguette by the sea came flooding back. I could feel and taste every bite it was torturous.

I’ll give the recipe a try next week and post the results even if it looks dodgy lol

I have non-coeliac gluten intolerance - and I am more allergic to supermarket "gluten-free" bread than I am to "proper" bread... but I eat Buckwheat muesli for breakfast.

The first time I had a gluten allergy attack, the doctor thought I had had a heart attack!
