I'm so excited I'm almost holding my breath! Mine has about 28 minutes to bake. Is yours in the oven yet?

How long are you planning to keep it in? If the Challah doesn't look like on my pictures, keep it little longer. Even 5 minutes makes different.

Don't forget to brush it with sugary water.

I'm waiting with you guys. I still have from mine, other wise I would bake it with you. Ach... The warm, freshly baked Challah is best.

I JUST put it in the oven! So mine won't be ready for about an hour. I made two small loafs instead of one. I can't even think of what to make for dinner, I'm so excited about this bread. I think I'm going to make my husband eat leftovers and I'm going to eat this bread for dinner. :lol: Seriously, I keep trying to come up with meals that go well with good bread and I can't think of any! I've gotten in the mode of making food that doesn't require bread with it. Maybe tommorrow I will have to make a good thick soup or something else that is good with bread to sop it up. :D

Likely 50 minutes but I always set the timer for about ten minutes less then work my way up. I cook/bake to temperature so I am looking for an internal temp of 190. Only about 12 minutes left!

We're having vichyssoise soup with it tonight (but I will most certainly be having my share before dinner).

This is fun that we both ended up making it at the same time. We should have bake off days where everyone bakes something on the same day and shares what they are baking.

Yum! I just bought some butternut squash for the same reason - roasted butternut squash and carrot soup with ginger and spices and maybe some pepitas. In my dairy days I would have added some peppered creme fraiche!

Man, this bread thing is so exciting! As soon as it is out of the oven I am tearing off a big old chunk.

Isn't it funny? Great minds think alike! ;) I would love to have bake-off days - I was thinking the same thing. Ooooooh...my buzzer just went!

I'm just starting to see winter squashes in the market here. I love this time of year! Coconut milk (in the can) is a great addition to soup to make it creamy.

Is it ever. I love coconut milk - always have and even more so now.

Bread is only at 170 - must wait a few minutes longer, darn it. :angry:

I just took a look in my oven and it is looking beautiful! The loaves are lightly golden right now like a piece of crusty French bread.

OK - FINALLY out of the oven. Only half is with sugar water because I wanted some savoury bread, too. It still looks beautiful, it rose nicely and is golden brown. I ripped a chunk off (couldn't stand it) and am just now devouring it with ghee (the non-sugary side). I really like the texture and flavour. Will be able to tell more after it cools a bit...

I'm happy that you like it so far. I have my laptop in kitchen and what I managed to do from my dinner was just to peel potatoes. Husband isn't going to be happy :lol: :lol:

Thanks! I cannot think of the last time I bought hot dogs. It is hard to find ones that are soy free and pork free too. Sounds like a good hardy soup though. I will keep it in mind.

It is good soup. As I sad, you can use bacon- turkey for meat in it. I'm making it only in winter and only about twice, but when I do, everybody enjoy it.

You can eat this bread with stuffed cabbage, or some pasta dish, or just with butter.

Oh, you are genius! I am too lazy to cook tonight so pasta it is! I can have that ready in 15 minutes and have bread on the side.

It is very good! My husband's words were: "If that is not a recipe you found online you should share it on celiac.com". Then I told him I found it here! :lol:

I am wishing that it were either a little sweeter or less sweet and more savory. Next time I will try it with vanilla flavored almond milk since your recipe called for vanilla flavored rice milk. Or I will make it with plain homemade rice milk and use fresh herbs to make it savory. Also I have noticed that when I make baked goods with coconut milk they are very moist but don't rise as much. This a great soft bread but I wish it were a little more fluffy. It may be because of the milk or because I mixed by hand. It is the best I have made since being gluten free however. I love the crust that it has from the egg wash. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Simona, my husband is not home from work yet but I know he will like it, too. He was so happy when I showed him your photos! I agree with GFM - I would probably like it either more sweeet or more savoury (but I lean towards savoury as opposed to sweet, anyway, and that is such an easy thing to change!). That is not your fault - you did specify adding more sugar if you prefer sweeter. But as is it would make a great AP bread. I think I will also add in fresh herbs and roasted garlic next time (and I do that with many recipes anyway) but that is purely personal taste. It is very, very good. It is more dense than I thought it would be (but that could be because I used some sorghum in place of the white rice flour). Will try it without sorghum next time. Because there WILL be a next time! :D

It is definitely one of the very best gluten-free breads I have made. It is so worth doing! And it is not difficult at all so anyone could do it. I am so curious to see what the texture will be like tomorrow, too. This is truly very good bread and I would recommend it to anyone. I also love that it seems as though it could be very versatile (making rolls, pretzels as GFM suggested). And the aroma is yeasty and lovely.

Simona, thank you so much for this exciting adventure! Perhaps we'll have to bake together sometime! :P I think this will be my go-to homemade bread from now on. Congratulations on such a great job!

Thank you for compliments. I'm very happy that it came out prety good.

The second time around I substituted potato flour for tapioca. It was good, but it wasn't like the first time I baked. I made an apple cake from the same dough the third time around and it was perfect, soft. I still have two slices for today from it.

I like it also more sweet. In this tread I mentioned that you can use more sugar.

The dough would be good with any differtent spices or seeds. For the savory version add more salt and use only 2 Tbsp. of sugar.

I ended up making The potato beans soup for dinner. Here is the picture:

Simona, it is more than "pretty good" - it is VERY good! You should be very, very proud of your major accomplishment. Really and truly.

That soup looks delicious. Is it a Slovenian recipe? I am really enjoying our Croatian meals! We leave for Istria in two weeks and cannot wait.

Yes, it is. The original recipe calls for dry beans instead of canned which means that you need to cook it for long time until soft. I didn't have time for that- I never have time for that and I came up with this easy option. Everything is good where is garlic.

As for the meat in this soup the original recipe calls for smoked ham, kolbasy, bacon, hot-dogs, or mix of them. Some people will cook a smoked pork sholder and later they will chop meat into soup.

I'm trying to make my life easy and my recipes are always simple - Most of them. :lol:

I can say that we finaly finished the Challah that I made on Sunday. It wasn't without fight. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tomorrow I will bake another one. I will also make special cakes for my husband's party on Saturday.

I will post recipe from at least one cake later.

I'm happy....

    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight? 
    • Hello Everyone, This is my first post here and I am writing to seek help from experienced people here. I have been suffering for over 4 years now and still no where close to having a solution/ satisfactory diagnosis of my problem. My problems started in Mar 2012 with sudden diarrhea which would not go away for days. At first, I was given general antibiotics medication which would help bring down the frequency for some days and then it would come back. Since then it has been going on. I am giving a time line and the series of tests and procedures I have gone through. Would like opinion from experienced and experts here. I can send the scans and reports if required. Would really appreciate the help. Male, Indian origin Mar 2012 - onset of symptoms - multiple bouts diarrhea - spaced 3-4 weeks, bloating, weight loss (to start with I was 74 Kgs), GP managed with antibitocs and loperamide for months Dec 2012 - consulted a GI doc towards end of 2012, Colonoscopy done - conclusion was "IBS" - was advised to manage stress. use Rifaximin and immodium Jan 2013 - Aug 2013 kept moderately fine for 3-4 months ..again started getting frequent diarrhea + weight loss (was around 70 Kgs) Oct 2013 - Consulted another doc, MD - stool and blood test - Ecoli and high Eosinophil Count, medication done for 5-6 months, montinored eosinophil from nov - Mar: always kept high.. came down but then again shot up in a month Mar 2014 - Consulted another GI expert - Endoscopy and duodenal biopsy done - H Pylori and Unremarkable Villious pattern, (weight 68 Kgs) - On and Off diarrhea continued. Given: Ivermectin July 2014 - again same doc - Blood test done: High Eosinophil count,  Colonoscopy and Ileum biopsy - preserved villous architecture, features of eosinophilic enteritis; Endoscopy  + duodenal biospy again - numerous H pylori bacteria, Preserved villous crypt ratio, features of eosinophilic enteritis > conclusion: I have eosinophilic enteritis. Started on Prednisolone (steroids) Aug 2014 - 3-4 days of severe diarrhea> weight came down to 65 Kgs. Hospitalised for 3 days - continued on Prednisolonerios Sep 2014 - After 10 days only again a serious bout of diarrhea - hospitalized again - put on IV fluid for 8 days - weight 59 Kgs. Colonoscopy + biopsy done: features of superimposed c. difficile colitis, non-specific mild colitis > c. difficle test came out negative. CT Enterolysis +Scan done: mesenteric lymphadenopathy > nothing wrong acc to docs. IgA deficiency found - diagnosed Celiac - advised for Gluten free diet.   Sep 14 - May 16: continued gluten-free diet, gained weight upto 63 Kg in Jan 16, but then started losing again and came to 59 Kgs in May. No signficant diarrhea. Minor issues. June 16 onwards: Again diarrhea started, still on gluten-free diet, weight lost - 54 Kgs now. hospitalised again under same GI doc - blood test - eosinophil high, CT Enterolysis done: Showing mucosal thickening in Jejunum and Ileum; Enteroscopy (going in jejunum) + jejunal biopsy - jejunal erosions + villous blunting, marked atrophic with V:C ratio of 0.5: 1 to 0:1. HttG blood test done - Came out negative> Conclusion : No gluten exposure (how?) + Refractory Celiac disease. June - July - have been suffering from continuous diarrhea (goes off for 5-6 days and comes back, bloating, trappings in abdomen - waiting for I don't know what. On Rifaximin + Ivermectin + Codeine Sulphate (for diarrhea) I am very depressed and have no clarity on what's going on. If it is celiac, why am I not doing better on gluten-free diet. If the villous damage is still there in small intestine, then why did I kept fine for Sep - May period? HTTG - negative now but was NOT taken in Sep when I was first diagnosed with celiac. Can we trust negative HTTG now and conclude that it has come down? I am 20 kgs down from my ideal weight and still going down. Have no clue what NOT to eat to stop this. Why is eosinophil always high. Can any of you expert help me to put my case to docs in other countries? With lots of hope, Alok          
    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
    • Hi.  I have been reading your post and thinking about how my pain was around diagnosis.  It was above the belly button, I think where you are describing.  At the time I assumed I had a stomach ulcer.   I had been taking Neurofen for an ear problem and assumed it was the NSAID that had caused my stomach ulcer (which I actually didn't have, when I had an endoscopy a few weeks later my stomach was looking great! My small intestine was not!).   Going back to the pain, it was a burning feeling.   My doctor prescribed Omeprazole but it didn't touch it.   In fact I ended up with bad D. which eventually lead to me having all the tests for Celiac Disease.   I still get that pain if I eat oats (pure oats) that are supposed to be OK for most Celiacs.     I get various pains in different places in my digestive tract from time to time, but that burning pain is something I won't forget. The other thing I had that you mention was that pain between the shoulder blades.  I had that - I felt almost like someone was pushing my shoulders down.  So odd. I get palpitations when I am anemic.    I hope you get some answers soon.  It is pretty tough having to keep going from one doctor to another, but sometimes it is the only way.
