Recipe For Gluten Free Country Style Bread

I have a few family members who are on a gluten free diet. My dad has followed a wheat free regime for many years and so when they came to spend their annual holiday in the Western Cape I decided to make him a loaf of Gluten Free Country Style Bread so that he could enjoy his breakfasts at the hotel. No-one raised an eyebrow when he bought his own bread to the table, and a lady sitting next to them even commented on it. This was made in my bread oven and it was quite a mission as there are ‘strict’ rules to adhere to – but looking at the loaf, and the look of joy on my dad’s face, made it all worth while.

  7. I don´t have to deal with the gluten free issue for anyone, but I understand it´s a real problem trying to find a good recipe that gives the right texture. I bet it tasted good, even if it was a little “cakey” (rather like soda bread maybe?)

  8. What a good-looking GF bread! They usually look a little…hmm, flat and unappealing, but this looks delish! I’m not gluten free, but I like trying gluten free recipes from time to time.

    1. I have discovered that gluten free and sugar free don’t work together very well, so I seldom make gluten free stuff 🙂

  9. This was so thoughtful of you to bake for your dad while he traveled! I’m not allergic to wheat but to try to limit my intake. I’m always looking for good gf recipes. They seem a bit complex with all the flours though and like your comment above, hard to get a real bread texture, more cakey. But for anyone unable to eat wheat this is like heaven sent!!

  11. Hello Tandy! (I’m so behind on my blog reading, I thought I’d better start with your most recent!). I have been looking for a gluten free bread recipe which actually works, and is like bread – please ask your dad how this recipe compared to normal bread for me? thanks 🙂

  13. Tandy, the quest for gluten-free bread is an ongoing one. How bread-like was this loaf? It certainly looks the part, but so often gf loaves are quite cakey…
