Focaccia Bread Recipe...

Welcome here! I'm so glad you took advantage of tweaking this recipe to your needs. That shows you are a creative baker - awesome. It is indeed a very simple recipe to make substitutions. I'll have to try it with psyllium instead as well to compare. I miss chewiness! :D

Thank you sincerely for the welcome. Its just because of the gums issue that I switched to chia seeds first (but the smell/taste and discolouration of whatever I was baking just frustrated me)Psyllium is new to me but in the last few things I have made, It has really been impressive.

I used to be a Baker. Unfortunately, once I was diagnosed, the itchy skin, rashes and constant vomiting, headaches and nausea just grew too much to bear. I couldn't taste test anything anymore, and the flour was on my skin, under my baking clothes, that stuff got everywhere. The owners, for popularity reasons didn't want to switch to gluten free baked goods, so my career ended at that point.

Anyways, life is much better now, and I totally rambled in the wrong forum topic lol.

Please keep up the recipes for those of us re-learning!

Ok, so I am saying in advance that I used this as an outline, not a hard and fast rule. Its how I like to bake so please take that into account, BUT I never could have made this such a success without your fantastic recipe. I look forward to reading through more of the food forums to find your little gems!!!

Changes I made,

-I cannot handle gums, so I used 2 tsp of Psyllium powder instead.

-I use a flour blend created by another website that I am sure many of you are already aware of, its gluten free girl. The Ahern's flour blend. It shares many similar ingredients to the OP, so I took the liberty since I had it all ready mixed and in a container ready to go. (Its flexible for many allergies, since it uses a weight ratio, subbing different flours in or out is so very easy)

Ok, that was it for changes :-)

This was amazing. I am not sure if my changes added that 'chewiness' everyone wanted, or If i just got lucky! It was chewy, crispy on the bottom, with this salty top that was tender and truly life changing lol.

Just amazing and I sincerely thank you for this recipe <3

Is this the flour blend from gluten-free Girl? I saw where she said she tweeked her flour blend for a cookie in Dec. 2010 on her website, but wasn't sure if this is her "go to" flour blend or if it was just tweeked for the cookie recipe.

200 grams superfine brown rice flour

150 grams sorghum flour

50 grams potato flour

250 grams sweet rice flour

150 grams potato starch

100 grams arrowroot powder

100 grams cornstarch

Hey ladies, I'm not sure about international shipping, but The Teff Company has great rates for ivory and dark teff. They are where most companies get their teff that they repackage and sell I have heard.

In my opinion, teff flour does not add much along the lines of taste, but it does help with the structure.

Yes!!! That's exactly it. I love the ability to swap out anything you may have an allergy too (she has a full list to choose from, the above was her personal blend). Plus I adore baking by weight, so I appreciated it when she switched over to that style.

I have a had a piece of the focaccia everyday since making it, and again OP, TY

I like upping the protein content as well, not feeling like I'm cooking with white flour all the time.

Cool. So you could actually sub tapioca flour for the cornstarch?

You could, but it could be gummy. Are you able to use potato starch? I've read of using that as a substitute.

    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
