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:

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
