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).

    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
    • I am sorry that you are sick! i think you need to really adhere to a gluten free diet that consists of ONLY whole foods (no processed gluten-free foods) and do not go out to eat, until you start to see improvement.  Each tiny gluten exposure can set you back.  It sounds like you really became even more ill after the gluten challenge.   I was just anemic when diagnosed.  I waited seven weeks for my endoscopy due to work issues, so i took the time to consume lots of gluten.  Like a loaf of sourdough per day not to mention all the cakes, cookies that I loved.  (Okay, I just ate a few out of each package......)  by the end of seven weeks, I knew I had celiac disease.  I had a bloated stomach visible under my left rib cage, pinching when I bent over, indigestion, etc.  Not to mention some weird Fibro pain my my shoulders, tingly legs, etc.   Most resolved, but it took about two years. If you  ask for thyroid panel, be sure it includes testing for thyroid antibodies.   
    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
