Almond Meal Substitution?

are you also nut and dair sensitive, is that why you're asking, or because you just don't have either of those things on hand at the mo?

I'm not sure why the original recipe uses almond meal specifically as a sub for the powdered milk, the textures are completely different, and any bread recipe I've seen usually only uses a couple of tablespoons of powdered milk, not half a cup! Unless they're just looking for a calcium ingredient...?

I'd suggest you can probably go without either entirely. I can't find a good reason why dairy is required in a bread recipe to begin with.

I have allergy to all nuts, peanuts, milk casein, honey, kiwi, orange aroma (orange oil in peels) and I'm lactose and fructose intolerant.

I was wondering the same thing. Usually the bread recipe that I read had water instead of milk in it.

How about using Vance's DariFree, which would be a sub for dry milk?

I just had another thought. I wonder if you could use some flaxseed meal in lieu of the almond meal in this recipe??? Or possibly use 1/4 c. flaxseed meal and a bit more flour? I know you'd be taking a chance how it may turn out...but I've baked a brick now and then. :lol:

I never heard about Vance's DeriFree. Thank you.

Yesterday I made that Challah that I wanted. I didn't had Bette Batter flour and I made my own. the process was very funny. I was thinking that if somebody saw me from you guys, you would laugh very hard. All kitchen was up-side-down. OMG. Currently I live in home where kitchen counter is only 1 1/2 yards long with sink and place for dishes. I got 1/2 yard x 1/4 yard left for any work. Then I have round kitchen table in middle and fridge on other side of kitchen. If somebody sits down, the other person can't go through. Me, baker and stuck in this kithen. Ach... :angry:

Yesterday the Challah was very good. I ate 3 huge slices. Today is good, but today I know that that thing is gluten free. :(

I bet you were really cute! :lol: And does that space hold your new mixer, too?

Bummer about the bread...it's always good the first day and then the second day it usually does taste gluten-free. Maybe one of these days we'll come up with a real winner. I'm waiting and waiting and waiting. :blink: Did you try freezing the bread? I usually slice it and then put two pieces in a foldover sandwich bag and then it goes into a Ziploc bag.

I found a place for my mixer. It's between two chairs by the wall on top of small cabinet.

Holy cow!!! You are really short on space! Hang onto that mixer so it doesn't end up on the floor!!!

Your kitchen is really cute, even though it's tiny. ;)

Hooray for you..experimenting with the bread! I just got my mixer. I took it out of the box yesterday, but didn't run it yet. I'm a little scared of it. LOL :blink:

With your mixer on that little stand it kind of makes me nervous that it could get bumped and topple over. Could you sit it at an angle so it's on the stand a bit more? :o

I will put my new mixer on table when it will be in use. I did it yesterday. The mixer is holding this little cabinet together. :lol::lol: :lol:

The Challah that I baked was huge. I used 10x15 pan and it was full. I will post the recipe later. The first day I was in love with it. The second - it was ok. Today I made French toast from it - very good.

Milk makes the bread softer.

    • Anyone who has ever tried to get an official diagnosis for celiac disease has likely experienced one very unpleasant reality: Having to eat wheat for a couple of weeks to make sure the antibody tests are accurate. Currently celiac diagnosis requires gluten consumption. This can be hard for people who have already given up gluten. View the full article
    • Perhaps automated word pull as JMG suggested. It is irrelevant, but I must comment :  Oddly was entertaining for me today (on a rough day) to read this drivel that included celiac bashing . The celiac dis didn't even hurt, for it was from someone who could not formulate a coherent rational  thought  and shared that publicly. At first I wondered what substance the author was on, then I read further to discover more of this odd piece. The author is all over the place. The piece is also laced with a poorly excuted, back handed attempt to express judgement , anger, and veiled hate in a masked arrogant self subscribed Christian label.  Sure the author  makes a point of shaming the offenders who dropped off the offensive clothes. If the author were perhaps more coherent and a better writer the piece could be borderline offensive or effectively shameful. Alas it is neither.  I however felt sorry  not for the donation facility , the homeless , or the readers, but felt sorry for the author . The author clearly has a lot of self hate, anger, low self esteem, poorly hidden beneath a false facade of uppityness, narcissism, arrogance, while identifying /self labeling as a Christian.  I very rarely get to read a piece where I can play/exercise my brain as lay person couch psychologist . This piece lends itself to that perfectly. I went to the link and read the comments below the article from the real people who express how best to give to those in need, where, and how appropriately. So all was not lost. The right people commented kindly, respectfully, logically, in a helpful guiding way and without hate or shame. So regardless of how admin got this article here - most of us should skip this for the rest of us  bored enough or seeking an odd entertainment piece that does not relate to celiac , let's hope the author gets the help they need as a disgusting gluten-free sandwich has more to offer to society. 😉 Lol  
    • Hi Gemma, Welcome to the very select, exclusive, super secret club of NCGS (or I if you like), where you get all the fun of living the gluten free diet with the added scepticism of half the medical establishment and most of the general public   If you're interested in learning more, there's some good resources collected here:  Feel free to add or just post there if you like.  It's great that the diet is working for you. The emotional side is difficult no doubt. It does get easier, trust me, for you and those around you also. You get better at planning, at coping, at working around it etc. The availability of safe foods and wider knowledge continues to improve year on year.  I've barely been back to Germany, one of my favourite countries, since going gluten-free but take some comfort in the fact that its always harder in a different country with a language barrier as well, but even so there's hope: https://foursquare.com/top-places/berlin/best-places-glutenfree-food https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants-g187323-zfz10992-Berlin.html You maybe need to accept there's a level of preplanning needed now that wasn't there before and if you do that you can still be spontaneous in other ways? Expect some setbacks, at times its ok to cry. Or, er happen to get something in your eye if you're a strapping bloke who should know better  Keep a good supply of nice safe snacks and treats at close hand. In your car/bag/pocket. Eat well before you go out. Have your freezer well stocked with nice safe food and your fridge too. Get to know what easy safe options are available, Are you in the UK? Join Coeliac.org and they'll send you the brilliant guide which will unlock so many safe, cheap foods, also available as an app. And post here, lots of good people with advice and support. Best of luck, Matt  
    • Hi All,  Recently (Nov 2017) I was diagnosed with NCGI by my consultant at hospital, this diagnosis has been after years of testing, colonoscopies, endoscopies and a 2 stone weight loss - it took the weight loss for me to finally be taken seriously by dr's. (I was tested for celiac around a year ago, all clear). I'm looking for advice to help me cope with this diagnosis, albeit I am thrilled that I potentially do not have anything life threatening (still undergoing tests, hosp visits etc.) but on the whole, I'm feeling hopeful that gluten may be the root cause to all my ailments and symptoms.  From diagnosis, I have cut out gluten completely, and apart from the odd slip up or cross contamination incident I have noticed a drastic improvement in my life quality and my time spent inside my bathroom walls has dramatically reduced. (TMI?)  The problem I am currently having is that I feel completely isolated from everyone in my life, I feel that me having to follow this strict diet is putting a burden on loved ones, especially when it comes to travel & eating out. (Was over in Berlin over the weekend, spent a good 5 hours over the weekend crying at being a burden to my BF restricting where we can eat, and also the fact that the majority of places we tried to dine, bar one or two, did not cater to the diet).  I thought I was coping with the diagnosis well, however the crying spell and fed up feeling with it proved I'm not. Does anyone have any good tips they followed and can recommend when they were newly diagnosed?    Xxx
    • Sorghum flour gives me massive cramps and diarrhea within 5 hours. I avoid it like the plague now.  FYI: Krusteaz gluten-free cornbread also has it as an ingredient, just found out the hard way.
