I have tried for 20+ years to find a good easter bread recipe for my husband. It is a tradition in his Italian family to make and serve on Easter Sunday morning. At one time recipe zaar offered one as a starting point. Can't find it, they list over 6ooo gulten free breads. Can anyone help us out? Please and thank you

MEEEE TOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Damn Italians and their Easter bread! (lol - that is how I got my hips and thighs - lol!)

PLEASE post the challah recipe on here if you can! I will slap some almond-flavored icing and colored coconut on it and see if it works!

They are copywrited recipies from a book that is still being sold in bookstores so I'm not comfortable posting them. Maybe there's some other way ? Also your local library might have them. I've found several gluten-free cookbooks at mine.

Thanks for your efforts. I have just found a recipe that I will try to convert to gluten-free Flour., using a bread machine. Will share if it works. Until then, anyone else got a thought? I did make a great cherry cobbler last nite, and Wedding Soup.

You can email her the recipe, though! :)

In the same book there are recipies for Christmas Stollen using ricotta cheese, candied fruits and no yeast, baked on a cookie sheet long and flat and a hot cross buns recipie using yeast. I'm happy to share them, via e-mail just can't type so it takes me a while :huh:

Trying again to post this easter bread recipe. What a treat for husband to have toasted easter bread with lots of butter this a.m. Am satified that this recipe works. To find it , go to recipezaar.co and type in88299 in search box. then make the changes I am adding here. The basic recipe is just the same as my mother -in-law's except hers made six loaves instead of one. The bread is the courser, denser rustic style, not the "americanized version " that is now popular. It smells, looks and taste like the real thing. The only problem I had was that I baked it too long. Will correct next time.

Changes to the recipe.

Add juice of 1/2 lemon and 1/2 orange

zest of 1/2 lemon

zest of whole orange

1 tab/ pure anise flavoring

remove gluten (no brainer)

add 2.5 tsp of xanthum gum

increase yeast to 2 tsp.

I mixed the flavoring and zest in the liquids

I also melted the butter. (can you add it not melted in a bread machine?)

Flour mix

1cup brown rice flour

1 cup of white rice flour

1/2 cup of sweet rice flour

1/4 cup of Pot starch

1/4 Corn starch

1/ 4 cuo Tapi flour

1/4 cup of sorghum Flour

feel free to tinker with this. I would appreciate your critique. Am always willing to learn from others.

Hope you enjoy this and Happy Holidays to all

Thanks to miisy's Mom for the tech support.

In Europe there is an Italian company called Schar that makes really good gluten-free products.

You can find a recipe from their site for an Italian Easter Cake:

http://www.schaer.com/en/cooking/recipes/detail/239.html

I have not tried this recipe but I looked on the box of "Mix C" and the ingredients are:

Corn Starch, Corn Flour, thickerner, locust bean gum - I was suprised of the ingredients b/c the mix is very light and fluffy. I am not sure what the measurments are but I cant see why you could not substitute a Pamelas Mix or one of your favorites.

I use this mix alot for Crepes that turn out fantastic!!!

Good Luck

Theresa

If you don't find a good recipe, you can try to make mine, if you want to braid the bread use this:

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/84873-simonas-braided-challah/page__st__75__gopid__785727#entry785727

Please read all tread! Specially my last post.

For the Italian bread cut the recipe in half, or make two at once, if you can (it will bake better).

I will make it today for Easter.

Or

This:

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/85650-gluten-free-sandwich-bread/ , if you prefer softer bread. You can't braid with this dough, but you can use round pan with the hall in middle (like for bundt cake). Add 1 1/2 Tbsp. of sugar.

Bake them for 60-65 minutes, otherwise they will sink.

ok, sorry this is late. i wanted to make this at easter but forgot to get the gelatin. (plus, i didn't want to be so committed in case it turned out not so good) so i made it this week, and iced it with a simple vanilla icing (powdered sugar, butter, milk/water, vanilla extract) and sprinkled it with colorful sprinkles. i can not stop eating it. it SMELLS like a bakery..... mmmmmm......

this recipe is a keeper and it's pretty easy :) (go ahead and make it, you will eat the whole thing!)
