Great Flat Bread - gluten-free Foccacia From Recipezaar - No Egg Or Milk

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I cannot have cornstarch, potato starch or tapioca which is in so many gluten-free flour mixes. I also cannot have egg or dairy, which makes it difficult to make good bread.

However, someone on this forum mentioned this recipe (I've searched but cannot now find the original thread).

The recipe is on recipezaar http://www.recipezaar.com/312482

The recipezaar recipe does not have egg or milk, so I only had to alter the flour mix.

for the millet flour, I used superfine white flour (I could have used millet but didn't have any)

for the potato starch I used sweet rice flour

for the 1/2 cup cornstarch and 1/4 cup tapioca starch, I used 1/2 cup arrowroot

I also added about a tsp. of Italian seasoning to the dough, rather than sprinkly rosemary on top.

This was SOOO GOOD!

It was a little too moist - I'll adjust the water next time.

I sliced it up and toasted the slices to help dry the inside out. The texture is great and toasted it was heavenly.

I used an 8" round cake pan rather than a square one. My slices were thin wedges and looked really special.

Thanks to whoever you are who first linked to this recipe.

You are welcome! I am so happy that you can have a bread that tastes good :) Thanks to the person that posted it on recipezaar!!!!

I put ground flax in it now. And sometimes garlic salt instead of plain. And you can just cut it into strips for breadsticks.

Here is the thread in case anyone wants to read it. I posted my next baking experience there. I like to read what others did, it helps alot.

Foccacia is a very versatile bread and everybody seems to like the gluten-free kind. I used to use it as a base for pizza, but now use the Eneger-G crusts. I used to make a dessert pizza by omitting the savory seasonings, adding sugar and cinnamon to the top and then drizzling with icing.

Thanks, Purple. I should have known it was you. I searched for "focacia" which didn't bring up the thread as you hadn't used that word.

notice you've been experimenting with baked goods without egg. This has been quite helpful for me.

Tonight I thought a little olive oil and garlic powder would be very good on my Italian herb version. Didn't though, 'cause I was teaching an art class later and didn't want to blow them over with garlic breath :o

My dd that is not diagnosed allergic to anything is trying to be gluten-free and vegan...Its so hard to find something she can eat. She is losing weight and getting healthier. She knows she is affected by gluten some but has no tummy issues at all. Her sister is gluten-free. So, yes I am looking for vegan (eggless) recipes that are gluten-free. I was so happy to find this bread!

Plz let me know how your pancakes turn out. I found a fantstic waffle recipe but it takes Bob's gluten-free Flour. I wish you could have it or adjust the recipe. I make them all the time. No eggs and sub the milk.

Could you post all your allergies on here if you have more than what you already posted so I can keep my eye out while looking for recipes?

I was wondering how it would be for pizza crust. I want to try the recipe on gfmommy first.

A good web site to check out if you haven't already is:

http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com

I think you could make the breakfast brownies (not the choc. kind) really easy if you can sub the 1/2 cup starch. I made them with choc chips once but didn't really like them that way. Chopped dates were great in them. Cut, wrap and freeze and they make great granola bars.

Karina's lists lots of subs for her recipes. You might be able to make the Irish Soda Bread, I haven't tried it yet.

My first gluten-free, df, egg free recipe was banana muffins with this recipe:

http://recipezaar.com/301233

No starch in it either. I put batter in muffin tins and stir in chips, nuts or berries to make them different. Or put jam in the middle before filling the cup up. Reduce the cinnamon a bit the first time. I bet you could get really creative with it. Once I only used 2 bananas and used 1/2 cup pb and 3 T. applesauce, 1/4 nuts and no cinnamon.

Does this foccacia bread need to be toasted to taste right? I need to make my dd a treat for tommorrow, and I was thinking of trying the cinnamon sugar route. But, it won't work at school if it needs to be toasted.

I haven't tried bad gluten-free bread yet...nothing store bought.

I have made 4 different recipes and they all were good so far.

I like this recipe the best. B/C of the taste, the easyness to make it, and it doesn't have rice flour.

With that being said, I thought it was great the next day. The 3rd day it was getting a little crumbly. I had pb &j on it the 2nd day and it was fine. My dd took it to school several times the day after I made it and said it was fine. She wanted gluten-free bread w/o eggs or milk in it.

I am not a big bread eater so I haven't yet tried it with a meat/mayo sandwich.

I haven't toasted any gluten-free bread either. I could eat this bread plain which I never do with any bread gluten-free or not.

I did like it better with the top oiled though.

I want to try it for pizza crust one of these days or a meatball sandwich.

Thanks. I make ranger bars for her instead. I will try this, though. She will not eat the bread unless it's toasted, and I make her bread every 3-4 days.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
