Bread and Buns

Bread in a Bag (Gluten Free)

One of the times when I miss the convenience of gluten food most as a coeliac is when we travel away from home. I have yet to try a supermarket gluten free loaf of bread that I really think hits the sweet spot of tasting ok (or even good) and not being too expensive, and…

Cheese and Garlic Not-Naans

These little pockets of yumminess were the result of an experiment to try to create an alternative to gluteny cheese and garlic naans, for friends who were coming over for curry and particularly enjoyed cheese and garlic naans with their curries. It was only partway through the meal, after a slightly too long pause, that…

Coconut and Nigella Seed Flatbreads

These flatbreads are based on the common flour and yogurt flatbread combination, which I have seen in both gluten free and glutenous versions and have no idea where it originates. I was after a flatbread with a coconutty flavour to complement the tamarind and turmeric lentils that I posted last week. This is what I…

Garlic Butter Dough Balls (Gluten Free)

These are great alongside a meal or on their own as a snack and are very easy to make. This makes enough to fill a 23 cm round cake pan and should make enough dough balls for 4 to 6 people, depending on what else you serve with them! The cup measurements below are based…

Gluten Free Bread

I remember one of the first gluten free breads I bought from the supermarket after my coeliac diagnosis. It was expensive – about 3 times the price of normal glutenous bread – but it looked very promising and delicious. I hoped this lunchtime would be the moment that my children realised life was not going…

Gluten Free Bread Rolls

EDIT: I updated this recipe with revised ingredients on 5th May 2022. There wasn’t anything wrong with the previous versions – I just ferl the updated version is better! I had been trying and trying to make a reasonable gluten free white bread with no success. And then, this came together as as a completely…

Light Wholemeal Gluten Free Bread

Lately I have been experimenting with different wholegrain flours in my bread-making. I really like the taste and texture that flours such as sorghum, buckwheat, millet and brown rice flour give to gluten free bread. I am finding it interesting getting the right balance between different wholegrain flours, starches and psyllium husk, and sometimes it…

Mediterranean Bread Plait (Gluten Free)

I have been trying to perfect my basic gluten free ‘white bread’. In the process, I have come up with many iterations of the white bread recipe, to keep things interesting. In this version, I combined some of my favourite foods into one delicious loaf, which we thoroughly enjoyed for lunch alongside a salad! Unfortunately,…

Pesto Scrolls (Gluten Free)

Bread. I miss it. Soft, fluffy, white bread that rises beautifully and tastes delicious as only bread with gluten in it really can. I feel like I am on a hamster-wheel quest for tasty gluten-free bread that never-ends. But then that is partly my own fault as, when I come up with something delicious, my…

Roasted Garlic Bread Sticks (Gluten Free)

I recently decided to sort out the recipe indexes on this blog properly. As I did so, I saw an old post for roasted garlic bread sticks and it made me want some! Sadly that recipe was from my pre-coeliac diagnosis days and so is for glutenus bread sticks and no longer do-able for me.…

Seedy Bread (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Gum Free)

According to the date beside the scribbles of this recipe in the notebook I use for recipe development, I finalised this recipe last year. And I have made it numerous times since then as it is a great bread to make and take away with us. I have been planning to post it on here…

Soda Bread (Gluten Free)

I was inspired by the results of just using white rice flour and cornflour in my gluten free playdough recipe (here) to try some breadmaking with just those two flours as they are relatively cheap and readily available compared to many other gluten free flours and starches (just check that the one you are buying…

Stuffed Buns (Gluten Free)

If you’re looking for gluten free lunchbox inspiration, hopefully I have something for you in this recipe! These airy buns can be stuffed with whatever you like, although I highly recommend lots of cheese is included with any other ingredients! Although these taste best served warm from the oven, they can be wrapped once cool…

Wholegrain Pancake Bread (Gluten Free)

My family loves pancakes! But, as many people know, frying breakfast pancakes in sufficient quantities to satisfy hungry tummies can take a very looooong time. One great solution (way better than getting up at the crack of dawn so a steaming pile of warm pancakes is waiting when the everyone else gets up!) is to…

“Wholemeal” Bagels (Gluten Free)

We are currently in isolation and half the family have covid and the other half are expecting to test positive any day now. Unfortunately, this has also coincided with me having baked my way through most of the bulk bags of gluten free flours and starches that I bought a few months ago, and it…
