I realized that I forgot to right salt in the ingredients. I fixed the recipe.

I hope that people would make this recipe the right way.

Any gluten-free recipe you can form with your hands rather than spread wins my vote! I am making this tomorrow.

I just baked this. I divided dough in half. From one part I made a small Challah in bread pan with only three braids and from another I made an apple cake.

Thank you for the compliments. I understand the pain that we feel when we see something in store, or bakery that we were able to eat, and now we can just watch. If I make something that is good, really good I will share it right away with you guys.

P.S.: If you like to have sweeter Challah, add 2 more Tbsp. of sugar.

That looks wonderful! Question, do you think I can make this if I don't have a stand mixer? I only have a little hand mixer. Is the dough very hard to mix? Would it burn up my motor on my little hand mixer? I am very tempted to try. You are making some amazing things!

I think that you would burn the motor. The dough isn't very hard, but the hand mixer wouldn't survive.

I didn't have stand mixer before neither, and I tried to find the ways how can I make things without the expensive stand mixer.

My suggestion is:

Proof the yeast. Put all dry ingredients in bowl and strain them few times through strainer for pasta. Mix Eggs and margarine with hand mixer for 1-2 minutes.

Mix all ingredients together with hands for about 5-7 minutes and continue with the recipe.

Enjoy!

Thanks! Perhaps I will try that method to make this bread. I am hoping to get a stand mixer for Christmas this year so if I have to I can wait to do it right. :)

You will find that a stand mixer makes ALL the difference in gluten-free bread making. If you like making pasta I highly recommend the pasta attachment (if the mixer is a KitchenAid).

Hi! Did you made the Challah? If yes, how was it? Today is Tuesday and mine still soft. If you didn't like it, what do I need to change to have a better recipe?

Simona, I intended to make it yesterday but I had a lot of pain (chronic back pain). However, I see my chiropractor and have a nice long massage scheduled for this afternoon. So, I am definitely going to make it tomorrow. I also plan to do a lot of canning and making jams, etc. because we had to pick all our veg and herbs because of frost. Can't wait!

I'm glad your challah is still so soft. I am very excited about this recipe and will be sure to post my experience with it. :)

I also did not get a chance to make it. I don't have enough brown rice flour. My gluten-free store that I was getting it from went out of business and I have only been able to find Bob's Red Mill flours. So I had to order some online. I have everything else (except the stand mixer). As soon as I can I am going to try to make it. Will be watching this thread for Love2travel's experience. :)

Simona, my Simona Challah Bread is now rising! I did not have a chance to make it yesterday, either, but today was the day. I cannot tell you how wonderful it felt to form the bread rather than spread it out into a pan. It wasn't sticky at all. I subbed some sorghum flour for some of the white rice flour - will see how that works. I also love using bacon fat (for rubbing the dough). It looks so lovely. Cannot wait to try it - will post results very soon. :) It was such a pleasure to make and I bet it will be even more of a pleasure to eat! :P I've busily been making lots of preserves and am itching to try them with the bread.

Just a quick note - the recipe calls for a stick of margarine but does not mention when to add it in. As I am a baker I knew but for those new to baking it would be helpful to mention that in the original directions. :)

I hope your Challah would come out perfect. Today is Thursday and mine still soft. I made French toast from it for lunch today. I had finally tasted real French toast with maple sirup. :) :)

Ooo, I mixed margarine (unsalted) together with everything at once. I wanted to make a very simple recipe. Mix everything and bake. :D :D When I baked from regular flour before, the last thing that I added into dough was butter. Now... I did it this way.

French toast - awesome idea! I was thinking of making a butterscotch French toast and this bread looks like it would be perfect. It looks so good rising. I will cry tears of happiness if it tastes as good as it looks - I see other possibilities for this dough such as cinnamon rolls. A savoury version would be awesome, too, for things such as bruschetta. Simona, I think you have a hit on your hands. I really do.

I just came to post that mine is rising as well! I had to make a few changes. I used corn starch in place of the arrow root and coconut milk in place of the rice milk. For margerine I used Earth Balance dairy free and soy free spread. I mixed it all up by hand and then formed it. This dough smells like a soft pretzel dough to me. I think I might use this same recipe to try to make soft pretzels next. It smells heavenly and I have not even baked it yet! :)

I'm waiting by the computer for any reply about your baking like a small baby for a piece of cake after dinner.

I was struck by the smell myself. OMG!!!! It's our "miracle bread'???? I hope... B) B)

I'm practically pacing waiting for it! Thirty minutes to go before I tear into it.

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

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
