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.

I'm waiting for your reports. Is the Challah good, or not?

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....

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
