How fun it was to read this thread! I looked at each post like a new chapter and I could actually smell the bread baking as you all described it!

This is the first wonderful gluten free bread saga I have read. It was delightful fun to see how they all turned out!

I am going to make this soon...I loved how she said she was waiting as a small baby waits for a piece of cake...that is how I feel too! Waiting for a piece of real bread.

Thanks for the recipe and the bread-baking saga! So fun!

It's the next morning and my kitchen still smells like the wonderful smell from this bread baking! I had a slice for breakfast and it tastes sweeter to me this morning. The crumb is somewhat like a cake texture and it is still soft with a nice crust. This crust is the best crust I have made on a gluten-free bread. Now that it is fall I will have to make some pumpkin butter to put on this bread. :)

Yesterday I sort of felt like we were in our own little world, going back and forth, but am glad that you enjoyed baking along with us! This bread really is worth trying. :)

OK - Day 2 of THE BREAD.

Texture fine like cake as GlutenFreeManna said. Still soft, still smells like a bakery. My husband enjoyed it as well, having more than just one piece and leaving the rest for me. I am a professional recipe tester and so he is used to trying test recipes often and giving his opinion. Won't do an evaluation here but this bread is still one of the best gluten-free breads I have tried to date. I was so excited about the prospect of B R E A D yesterday that I was practically peeing my pants, waiting for the dough to rise then bake.

Thoughts - am going to form these into rolls next week. Did you hear that? FORM them into rolls. Not spread or drop but FORM. That was half the fun for me as I really miss kneading dough. This would make very good bread sticks (add some Parmesan and fresh herbs) and brush with garlic oil as soon as they are pulled out of the oven. I am also going to do a touch of tweaking to transform this recipe into pizza crust.

So, if you have are wavering whether you should consider trying this recipe, just DO IT. Sure, it is not like gluten bread but you cannot expect that.

Great job, Simona! :D Are you baking this bread again today?

O, yeeeah.

Mine bread is ready to go into oven in 10 minutes. In meantime I was baking doughs for other pastry cakes.

Today I'm making it more sweet. I added 2 more Tbsp. of sugar.

And one more trick: I made it higher and in two braids I mixed 1 Tbsp. of cocoa for color. I braided bread with them. In one row, one cocoa braid. After the Challah bread would be done, just picture one slice. It will be like a mozaic. Nice, right?

This kind of Challah bread we have been baking in my country for ages on special holidays, or for weddings, child's babtism, etc.

I used unsalted margarine in my recipe. If you don't have it, then use salty, but cut salt out from ingredients.

And if you will use coconut milk, cut on margarine little. There is more fat inside than in rice milk.

OMG!!!!

I just realized something. I made mistake when copying my recipe.

YOU NEED TO USE 1 Tbsp. of BAKING SODA.

Plus: use unsalted margarine. If you don't have, then use salty, but cut salt out from ingredience.

And if you will use coconut milk, cut on margarine little. There is more fat inside than in rice milk.

Should I post this recipe one more time, or write another reply with correct recipe?

Actually, I could tell that this was a big batch of dough so I adjusted the baking soda accordingly. But I think it would help to add that to the recipe in case people do not read each of these posts.

I do not use margarine but clarified butter in all my recipes and this worked very well, too. :)

As I tested my Challah and I can taste the baking soda. I checked one more time mine recipe and the first- original recipe is right.

There is only 1 TEASPOON of baking soda in it.

I made mistake with 1 Tbsp. of sugar. Sorry for the confusion.

I edited my post and there isn't any mentioning of it.

Interesting. I used 1.5 tsp and thankfully did not taste the soda. :)

I'm confused now which part was wrong but I will be sure to pay attention to the original post when I make it again. The texture and taste of this bread today was a little like biscotti. I think that if I were to put the slices in the oven and dry them like you do for croutons it would make an excellent biscotti. Sorry to say my bread did not stay soft but it still has a good flavor to it. I dipped pieces from my second small loaf into soup today. Tommorrow I will make either french toast or biscotti with the rest of it.

Same here! Not soft any longer (quite dry) BUT will make good French toast tomorrow! Next time I will make two loaves and freeze one. Or make some buns.

Mine is dry this time too- more baking soda could be the reason. It isn't tasty like before. :angry:

The recipe should be like this:

This dough would be good for a chocolate babka, cinnamon rolls, buns, or bread sticks like others sad.

Sorry for dry bread.

I found out myself that you need to use everything like I wrote, otherwise the result can be slightly different and not always good.

I kept my bread covered with plastic foil and in a plastic bag from store. It was soft for 3 days. On forth day I made French toast and it was soft, and good. I still have half from mine. I think I will make toasts tommorow to.

If somebody makes cinnamon rolls out of this...please write about it. I love reading about this bread!

I'm going to have to try...hey GlutenFreeManna? Did you make yours without using a mixer???

Did all of you make braids with your bread dough???

Did anyone make regular loaves?

Is this important or not? :unsure:

Yes I made mine by mixing by hand as suggested by Simona. It was hard work but I managed to get it mixed up well. I made two small braided loaves with only three threads in each bread. I had never made challah bread before so I didn't want to get to complicated with four or six threaded braids. The dough was not hard to work with as long as you had lots of oil on your hands. I had to re-oil my hands about 3 times while forming the loaves.

I made the smaller Challah bread myself with the half of dough. With the other half I made an apple

cake. I also made buns.

This Challah was soft for 3 days.

Apple cake

dough ( I covered the bottom of the pan by spreading the dough by hands), shredded apples, sugar, cinnamon and dough on top (you must devide dough on 4-6 slices, spread it in your hands and cover the top of cake one part at time - the dough is delicate and you wouldn't be able to cover all area at ones)

I compared your first recipe to this. They are the same ingredients except this new one doesn't list the salt.

I thought maybe we could fix the first one but it looks OK.

Cook on!

Sorry, sorry, sorry. I fixed the second recipe again. I used copy and paste from my file, where I originaly forgot to add salt. And I already fixed the first time. Hm...

:blink: :blink: :o :o :o

I did the same mistake twice. I fixed the recipe. If you use unsalted butter, margarine, then you need salt, but if you use salted margarine, then you don't need to use salt!!!

Finally I sad it right. :rolleyes:

I think so. Try it and you will see, if you need to adjust something later. I wish that I could use milk and butter in my recipes. The life would be easier, but I can't and I came out with this recipe instead.

A Chocolate babka is this:

But we should try to make it with my dough and put chocolate in middle

I'm also wondering, if my dough would be good for this. This is WOW!

Chocolate babka sounds wonderful! Sorry to report that this bread completely crumbled on me today when I tried to slice it. So it was impossible to use for french toast or anything else except croutons or bread crumbs. I made croutons out of the remaining half of a loaf. I sprayed with olive oil, sprinkled with kosher salt, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Made the best croutons I have made in a long time however!

I will try the bread again sometime with a different milk sub and all the right ingredients. Thank you again for all your work and sharing the ideas for what else to make from this dough.

    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      Hello,  I am currently 20 months, 1 day gluten-free. I stopped consuming dairy a few weeks after going gluten-free when I realized I was having lingering symptoms. Since going gluten-free dairy-free each day has been a day closer to feeling like my old self. As a child never had any issues with gluten or dairy. It wasn't until a year before my blood test/endoscopy that I began getting sick or noticing any issues. Diaherria, nausea, abdominal pain like I ate a sparkler, shaking and trembling. My whole experience before going gluten free was a nightmare. That year I lived in fear of leaving my home because I would be so sick and restroom hopping and uncomfortable at work. As of now, I m doing much better. I can tolerate things I couldn't following my diagnosis... Orange juice, coffee, salsa... And have gained 10 pounds back. I do miss cheese dearly but am afraid to try and see if I can tolerate dairy again. Is there anyone who can give any advice about reintroducing dairy? When is the best time to try? Should I wait I until I hit my 2 year mark? Any advice, successful or unsuccessful stories would be much appreciated so I can decide what the next step is for me... Or if I will even make a step. That ks in advance. ~Nora.
