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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
