French Bread
0

5 posts in this topic

Would some of you wonderful bakers give me some advice about this recipe or possibly suggest another recipe for French bread? My friend, who is vegan, and I are going to get together and bake French bread. Her son bought her an expensive bread pan for just this purpose, and she's trying to go gluten-free, as well.

For some reason, this recipe sounds like it has too much tapioca, to me. She found it online. I don't like breads that are too starchy and I'm a little concerned that this will be too starchy. Here's the link:

Please let me know what you think. She's also used yeast in the past, so I'll be learning from her how to make yeast breads (when it has risen enough, etc.).

Thanks for all of your ideas, comments, suggestions :)

I make lots of bread and this recipe looks pretty good, actually. There is not an unusual amount of tapioca flour in it but I would personally swap a bit for maybe a bit more millet or some amaranth. You could even use a bit of corn flour. Do you have the lovely French pans? They make a big difference.

My friend has a brand new french pan that her son bought her.

I have all of the above flours and even some Besan, or chickpea flour that I have never used. Most sources when I Googled chickpea flour said it is the same thing as garbanzo flour? so I could probably substitute it.

So, if you were baking, how much corn flour, amaranth, tapioca, millet would you use? I'm just not saavy baking bread at all.

this website has some fantastic recipes for yeast breads, including a french bread recipe. I think the key to successful bread is a combination of a bunch of flours.

Thank you! That looks great! I think we can make it vegan by just using egg replacer for the eggs.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
