Desperate for Bread

Hi, does anyone out there, found a decent bread to eat either shop brought or does anyone have a receipt for a decent gluten free loaf!

Does eating corn cakes or popcorn cause the runs & stomach ache?

I have found Kelkin Sour Dough GF bread is actually very tasty when toasted. It’s expensive but some times you gotta have something that tastes close to the real thing! You can google it.

Where do you get this from, please?

I buy it in my local supermarket, it’s readily available.

Hi, have known about and loved Dr Myhill's site for some time now and other recipes great etc. but I Cannot get this bread recipe to rise! I have tried literally everything-even bought different loaf tins, oven hotter, cooler, all different temperatures and every single time the bread sinks and goes into a stodgy horrid mess in the middle meaning that only the mere morsels on the outside layer of the bread can be eaten. ANY advice I haven't thought of cos it just doesn't rise?

I can however mix it with a little almond flour and an egg and stick it in the microwave in a tiny amount and it works but doesn't taste the same and isn't as convenient as having a whole loaf? really frustrating as I'd eat it, if I could make it.

Hi, I make it often, it always seems to be hit and miss, best results are preheating the oven for as long as possible. I use it after cooking something else and keeping the oven on at full. If it's stody in the middel I toast it!

Try Waitrose they do alot of Better breads plus you can order on line from places that make it.

Hi I’ve recently bought a bread machine and the bread is lovely. It makes good gluten free bread as well

I did have a bread machine, but that's when I was eating normal bread, saw YouTube recipes for GF bread, it seems a lot of hassle, but thank you for reply

Hi Lovesewing,

I have just started eating bread and as I don’t have any sense of smell or taste at the moment it is difficult to give a true view but I have it toasted and my husband says it smells lovely it is from most supermarkets I think Genius Gluten Free Soft Brown Sliced Bread 535g they also do a seeded one which is also nice.

Thank you will give it a try

This bread was amazing and easy to make, it’s a keto recipe so a lot of eggs needed because it’s coconut flour but texture was nice, not dry at all. Take out the cinnamon if you want it more as a savoury bread.

Also I highly recommend this pizza dough recipe, it was delicious.

Warburtons do a really nice GF white sliced loaf. I get it in Asda or Tesco.

You were asking about corn cakes and pop corn - have you had upset tummies from eating these? Xx

Reply

Will try this bread, thanks, yes tummy very bad after corn cakes & popcorn

Reply

That’s strange about the corn cakes and popcorn. What about rice cakes instead? Xx

Reply

Will give rice cakes a try x

You could make your own faff-free bread by using gluten free flour (Dove's farm) to make Irish soda bread (no mixer, takes about 40 mins MAX, bbc.com/food/recipes/irishs... or even flatbread (https://joskitchenlarder.com/easy-flatbread-no-yeast/). You can make buttermilk by adding 1 tablespoon lemon juice to milk and letting it stand for 10 mins. Also works for almond milk & soya milk. I've not tried these with gluten free flour, by the way, but you might enjoy experimenting! Good luck.

Corn is indigestible, that's why you're having problems. Bread is difficult to digest and damaging to the intestines. Don't eat it for a month, then try it and you should find it's really not as nice as you thought it was. It's a fake food and should be avoided or, if you have to, eaten, at most, once a week.

Agree, bread is not as nice as you think it will be. I very rarely eat bread these days, like I say I buy the odd Schar loaf when I think I want bread - then I freeze it.

I certainly don’t eat it daily - more like monthly for me if that. That’s the one thing I miss most being GF - our town bakery does a magnificent granary loaf, with unsalted butter and a scraping of raspberry conserve - mmmmm - that and big fluffy sultana scones from the local garden centre are the things I do miss.

Thank you for info re corn will mak sure I don't eat it anymore

I like Shar bread. I usually get the ‘grain’ one. It’s expensive though. I tend the make sandwiches the first day then freeze it for toast afterwards. I know a health food shop in Cambridge that sells lovely gluten free loaves - no use if you don’t live around there though. It has ‘weight’ that’s what I miss most about GF bread, and this one isn’t sweet or crumbly like I find a lot of GF bread type products are, again the person who sold it said to slice it and freeze it when I got home.

Have a look at the bread recipe on the Doves Farm site.

I can eat corn / rice cakes without a problem, I’m also ok with oat products but I’ve got a friend who can’t eat oats at all.

Hello, commercial popcorn is bad for trans-fats which cause inflammation. Tesco do a good Gluten free protein wrap, which is about the nicest thing I have found. I haven't found any good breads, so what I do now is eat normal bread with a digestive enzyme tablet.

Reply

Well that's very interesting re popcorn, will give Tesco Gluten Free wraps a try. Where do you get your digestive enzyme tablets from! Do you only take them when you eat normal bread!

Reply

I buy them on Ebay, "Lifeplan Digestive Enzymes" work OK for me, but I am also getting some others to try out. They really work. I am experimenting with them a couple of times a day, lunch and afternoon only. There are others which have cellulase, which help to break up FODMAP vegetables like cabbage and broccoli.

Well that's great, will,look on eBay and see if they help

Thank you very much for all the helpful info you have given me, good luck to you in the future
