0

5 posts in this topic

please bakers i need your help,

 

does anyone have any really easy recipes for flatbread, tortilla, or pittas- im not really bothered about baking a proper loaf. just need something dead quick and easy.

im rubbish at baking and just bought some different flours, got rice,brown rice, maize, chickpea and the baking powder and stuff. the only thing is -no eggs, ive read that you can use apple sauce as a replacement.

any ideas welcome lol- i just need something that remotely resembles bread!!!

Wraps:

 

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup water or milk

2 Tbsp flax moistened (I haven't tried it without eggs)

dash salt

 

warm fry pan.

Add butter or oil

Add some batter and tip if you want it spread thin.

Toast lightly on each side.

Eat.

 

It takes about 5 minutes.

 

Other idea look for grainless muffins on the internet.  I make mine with nut flour I make in a food processor.  It satisfies my bread craving.

She can't do eggs.   :unsure:

 

Okay, do you have available, as an egg substitute, some flaxseed ground up, or some chia seed that you can soak in water, or some plain, gluten free unsweetened psyllium ?   Otherwise can you find gluten free buckwheat (you can grind buckwheat seeds in a coffee grinder to make flour) or gluten free tapioca or gluten free amaranth or quinoa ?  All of these "sticky" type flour ingredients can be used as part of egg substitutes in gluten free baking. 

 

Gluten free flatbread pancake

 

3 heaping tablespoons gluten free flours (preferably straight buckwheat, or  1/2 buckwheat 1/2 other "sticky" type of gluten freee flour, or 1/3 each buckwheat, chickpea, potato starch)

pinch salt

pinch baking soda

some chia seed soaked in a little cold water is better for this, about a teaspoon of chia to a tablespoon of water, to make a "gel" 

1/2 teaspoon vinegar

enough water to make a pancake type batter of the above

optional spices (a pinch of cumin is nice) 

tablespoon oil, preferably olive oil

 

 

mix the above ingredients, adding enough water to make a thick batter,  then cook in oil in a hot pan, makes 2 small or one big flatbread

The best skillet for breads is usually a well-seasoned cast iron that you can use stove top or in the oven at high temps.  I use mine for everything from roasting chicken to biscuits to cornbread to buns to cinnamon rolls to scallion pancakes to tortillas...

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
