Well.

So.

I wanted to make sour cream by culturing cream with a bit of yogurt. I must have gotten a bad batch of yogurt because I ended up with a pot of warm, slightly sour cream.

I ran a couple runs of it through my food processor to make butter, but the last bit was the most yogurt-like (although still very very thin) and it wouldn't process into butter. I left it on the counter overnight while I thought about it, and decided to bake something with it. It's somewhere between over-whipped cream and butter.

I sort of followed a recipe for Irish soda bread, but left out the oil and just used my ..... goo. It ended up being a very liquid. Now, I've never made soda bread, but all the recipes say 'press into pan', so I'm thinking this isn't going to come out even remotely bread-like.

Any guesses about what I've made?

More of a cake batter? Chicken food? Did you bake it? How did it turn out! This is so exciting!

I would check it at 20-30 minutes and see from there. Cakes are usually 25 min

Well . . . if it was me experimenting like that . . . I think I would end up with a BIG hockey puck . . . perhaps a manhole cover. Me and any kind of bread "experiment" just doesn't work.

Let us know how it turns out.

Still gummy in the middle. I turned it down and left it in.

What did you use for the gluten free flour replacements ? What kind of pan are you using, ceramic, metal, square, round ?

Bake it until the center is springing back when touched, and a clean table knife inserted comes back out clean, and take it out of the oven before the smoke detectors go off. ;)

Looks like a bit too much tapioca. The outside is flaky, but the inside is rubbery, like Brazilian cheese rolls. Tastes ok when hot, but I'm not sure how it'll be once it cools.

The goo seems to be more like ricotta cheese after baking, so maybe I'll search down a cheesecake recipe for the rest of it.

Now try toasting it and tell us how it tastes.

Have you tried it with jam or butter?

Maybe you've invented some sort of new nuclear weapen disguised as bread?? :blink:

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
