Great Flat Bread - gluten-free Foccacia From Recipezaar - No Egg Or Milk

12 posts in this topic

I cannot have cornstarch, potato starch or tapioca which is in so many gluten-free flour mixes. I also cannot have egg or dairy, which makes it difficult to make good bread.

However, someone on this forum mentioned this recipe (I've searched but cannot now find the original thread).

The recipe is on recipezaar http://www.recipezaar.com/312482

The recipezaar recipe does not have egg or milk, so I only had to alter the flour mix.

for the millet flour, I used superfine white flour (I could have used millet but didn't have any)

for the potato starch I used sweet rice flour

for the 1/2 cup cornstarch and 1/4 cup tapioca starch, I used 1/2 cup arrowroot

I also added about a tsp. of Italian seasoning to the dough, rather than sprinkly rosemary on top.

This was SOOO GOOD!

It was a little too moist - I'll adjust the water next time.

I sliced it up and toasted the slices to help dry the inside out. The texture is great and toasted it was heavenly.

I used an 8" round cake pan rather than a square one. My slices were thin wedges and looked really special.

Thanks to whoever you are who first linked to this recipe.

You are welcome! I am so happy that you can have a bread that tastes good :) Thanks to the person that posted it on recipezaar!!!!

I put ground flax in it now. And sometimes garlic salt instead of plain. And you can just cut it into strips for breadsticks.

Here is the thread in case anyone wants to read it. I posted my next baking experience there. I like to read what others did, it helps alot.

Foccacia is a very versatile bread and everybody seems to like the gluten-free kind. I used to use it as a base for pizza, but now use the Eneger-G crusts. I used to make a dessert pizza by omitting the savory seasonings, adding sugar and cinnamon to the top and then drizzling with icing.

Thanks, Purple. I should have known it was you. I searched for "focacia" which didn't bring up the thread as you hadn't used that word.

notice you've been experimenting with baked goods without egg. This has been quite helpful for me.

Tonight I thought a little olive oil and garlic powder would be very good on my Italian herb version. Didn't though, 'cause I was teaching an art class later and didn't want to blow them over with garlic breath :o

:lol::P:lol:

My dd that is not diagnosed allergic to anything is trying to be gluten-free and vegan...Its so hard to find something she can eat. She is losing weight and getting healthier. She knows she is affected by gluten some but has no tummy issues at all. Her sister is gluten-free. So, yes I am looking for vegan (eggless) recipes that are gluten-free. I was so happy to find this bread!

Plz let me know how your pancakes turn out. I found a fantstic waffle recipe but it takes Bob's gluten-free Flour. I wish you could have it or adjust the recipe. I make them all the time. No eggs and sub the milk.

Could you post all your allergies on here if you have more than what you already posted so I can keep my eye out while looking for recipes?

I was wondering how it would be for pizza crust. I want to try the recipe on gfmommy first.

A good web site to check out if you haven't already is:

http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com

I think you could make the breakfast brownies (not the choc. kind) really easy if you can sub the 1/2 cup starch. I made them with choc chips once but didn't really like them that way. Chopped dates were great in them. Cut, wrap and freeze and they make great granola bars.

Karina's lists lots of subs for her recipes. You might be able to make the Irish Soda Bread, I haven't tried it yet.

My first gluten-free, df, egg free recipe was banana muffins with this recipe:

http://recipezaar.com/301233

No starch in it either. I put batter in muffin tins and stir in chips, nuts or berries to make them different. Or put jam in the middle before filling the cup up. Reduce the cinnamon a bit the first time. I bet you could get really creative with it. Once I only used 2 bananas and used 1/2 cup pb and 3 T. applesauce, 1/4 nuts and no cinnamon.

Does this foccacia bread need to be toasted to taste right? I need to make my dd a treat for tommorrow, and I was thinking of trying the cinnamon sugar route. But, it won't work at school if it needs to be toasted.

I haven't tried bad gluten-free bread yet...nothing store bought.

I have made 4 different recipes and they all were good so far.

I like this recipe the best. B/C of the taste, the easyness to make it, and it doesn't have rice flour.

With that being said, I thought it was great the next day. The 3rd day it was getting a little crumbly. I had pb &j on it the 2nd day and it was fine. My dd took it to school several times the day after I made it and said it was fine. She wanted gluten-free bread w/o eggs or milk in it.

I am not a big bread eater so I haven't yet tried it with a meat/mayo sandwich.

I haven't toasted any gluten-free bread either. I could eat this bread plain which I never do with any bread gluten-free or not.

I did like it better with the top oiled though.

I want to try it for pizza crust one of these days or a meatball sandwich.

Thanks. I make ranger bars for her instead. I will try this, though. She will not eat the bread unless it's toasted, and I make her bread every 3-4 days.

    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Now if everyone out there who probably has a gluten problem adopted your attitude, they would be having a much better life.  After over 10 years gluten-free myself, who really cares about gluten pizza? I go months without gluten free pizza, which is very good by the way, and I am not an emotional wreck.  Imagine!  Glad you feel better and yes, it was the wheat!

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
