In Topic: Two Years Later: The Diagnosis!

27 March 2015 - 04:33 PM

What wonderful news!!!! This result brings hope to many of us... I for my part I am getting there... I have been diagnosed by one consultant as having celiac disease and having IBS and severe gluten intolerance by another... Maybe the next time I go and see my GI they will do the right test and hey presto!! I am still on my second year... One can never lose one's sense of humor- but well done for you!! Cheers

In Topic: Do You Make Homemade Waffles?

27 March 2015 - 04:21 PM

I make waffles wit all sorts of flours from scratch - teff, amaranth, coconut, almond and I mix them with ordinary self-raising flour in order to change the texture and tastes- 3 eggs, a good dollop of lactose free or soya yoghourt ( I am lactose intolerant)), lactose free butter ... And off we go onto the waffle iron!! Since becoming gluten free I normally don't eat bread anymore -as I cannot get used to the texture and the taste- And I make waffles with gluten free oat bran and use them as a substitute. I make up a few and freeze them to use as I need them.

In Topic: Bread Maker, Does It Matter If It Has A Gluten Free Setting?

16 February 2015 - 02:48 PM

If you eat a lot of bread, then it makes sense to have one. I for example, find it easier to keep flour in the cupboard and make the bread when I need to, than having to go to the shop to buy fresh bread- also where I live it is very difficult to find nice fresh gluten free bread... It always comes from a packet and tastes awful!! Even toasted...

... Ah , I nearly forgot... Every bread machine is different and you have to make sure you always stick with the instructions of your own machine as often recipes don't work with different machines...

No, it doesn't- you actually DO need a bread maker with ht egluten free settin because the dough rises at different rates than normal bread - also if you just use a normal bread maker without the special setting they break down very quickly. When making your bread you should follow the instructions on how to add the ingredients, quantities, etc to he letter. You will then enjoy your bread success! Good luck!!
