I Did It!

My dd is having a baking day at her day care, and they are baking Challa bread. Whenever they bake, we are told the day before and my dd bakes with me and we come in with it on baking day. This time, i decided to take a regular recipe for challa, and just use her gluten free flour in it instead - it was a bread mix that is awful, but with this recipe... well... it couldn't be worse!!!

It came out YUMMMMMMMMMMY! Exactly like the regular one, although what it will taste like tomorrow i have no idea ;)

I even managed to role a rope out of it, and then shaped it like a snail, it didn't look braided, but they were good...

I put them in the freezer, i can't toast them on shabbat, should i heat them, or will that make them worse???

Oooohhh, good for you!! Give yourself a pat on the back. We all experiment with our recipes to find something decent. I've had many failures, but getting better and better results.

I've had no problem freezing breads, then thawing and warming later. I don't eat a lot of bread, so it's the only way for me to keep it and not waste most of it.

So glad you made a good one. Don't forget to mark your recipe so you can remember next time. I tend to forget which ones I liked, and which ones sucked when I go to make anything. :rolleyes:

Congrats!! It's been great converting old recipes. Doesn't it give you a feeling of normalcy and control over celiac disease?

the recipe was great when it first came out of the oven, but when she ate it today, it was awful and crumbly. The taste stayed the same, so that was ok, coz she ate it, but i am a allergic to crumbs :D:D:D How can i stop that from happening? is it too much xanthium? Or is it because the bread mix was potato, corn and rice based, as opposed to a mix that had bean flour and more rice? I have just found garbanzo flour, not tried it yet, but would that help? Not her allergy, but mine? ;)

The best recipe for challah that I've found is at www/betterbatter.org. They sell a MARVELOUS flour mix, and that's what they use in the recipe they post. I DON'T use the braidable challah recipe (there are several different challah recipes), but the basic batter recipe. I make it in this pan: http://www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)/Kaiser-Bakeware-Form...f/dp/B00006JSTX, and it looks AND tastes like challah. It keeps for a couple of days, so you don't need to freeze it for Saturday if you make it on Friday. I keep mine in a breadbox made by Tupperware--I don't know if they still sell it or not. It has a little shelf to sit on so there is air circulation around the loaf. You could also use the Debbie Meyer bread bags, they really do work.

I also make it in my bread machine, and it turns out great (though not braided).

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
