Great Flat Bread - gluten-free Foccacia From Recipezaar - No Egg Or Milk
0

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

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.

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
