I'm so excited I'm almost holding my breath! Mine has about 28 minutes to bake. Is yours in the oven yet?

How long are you planning to keep it in? If the Challah doesn't look like on my pictures, keep it little longer. Even 5 minutes makes different.

Don't forget to brush it with sugary water.

I'm waiting with you guys. I still have from mine, other wise I would bake it with you. Ach... The warm, freshly baked Challah is best.

I JUST put it in the oven! So mine won't be ready for about an hour. I made two small loafs instead of one. I can't even think of what to make for dinner, I'm so excited about this bread. I think I'm going to make my husband eat leftovers and I'm going to eat this bread for dinner. :lol: Seriously, I keep trying to come up with meals that go well with good bread and I can't think of any! I've gotten in the mode of making food that doesn't require bread with it. Maybe tommorrow I will have to make a good thick soup or something else that is good with bread to sop it up. :D

Likely 50 minutes but I always set the timer for about ten minutes less then work my way up. I cook/bake to temperature so I am looking for an internal temp of 190. Only about 12 minutes left!

We're having vichyssoise soup with it tonight (but I will most certainly be having my share before dinner).

This is fun that we both ended up making it at the same time. We should have bake off days where everyone bakes something on the same day and shares what they are baking.

Yum! I just bought some butternut squash for the same reason - roasted butternut squash and carrot soup with ginger and spices and maybe some pepitas. In my dairy days I would have added some peppered creme fraiche!

Man, this bread thing is so exciting! As soon as it is out of the oven I am tearing off a big old chunk.

Isn't it funny? Great minds think alike! ;) I would love to have bake-off days - I was thinking the same thing. Ooooooh...my buzzer just went!

I'm just starting to see winter squashes in the market here. I love this time of year! Coconut milk (in the can) is a great addition to soup to make it creamy.

Is it ever. I love coconut milk - always have and even more so now.

Bread is only at 170 - must wait a few minutes longer, darn it. :angry:

I just took a look in my oven and it is looking beautiful! The loaves are lightly golden right now like a piece of crusty French bread.

OK - FINALLY out of the oven. Only half is with sugar water because I wanted some savoury bread, too. It still looks beautiful, it rose nicely and is golden brown. I ripped a chunk off (couldn't stand it) and am just now devouring it with ghee (the non-sugary side). I really like the texture and flavour. Will be able to tell more after it cools a bit...

I'm happy that you like it so far. I have my laptop in kitchen and what I managed to do from my dinner was just to peel potatoes. Husband isn't going to be happy :lol: :lol:

Thanks! I cannot think of the last time I bought hot dogs. It is hard to find ones that are soy free and pork free too. Sounds like a good hardy soup though. I will keep it in mind.

It is good soup. As I sad, you can use bacon- turkey for meat in it. I'm making it only in winter and only about twice, but when I do, everybody enjoy it.

You can eat this bread with stuffed cabbage, or some pasta dish, or just with butter.

Oh, you are genius! I am too lazy to cook tonight so pasta it is! I can have that ready in 15 minutes and have bread on the side.

I'm waiting for your reports. Is the Challah good, or not?

It is very good! My husband's words were: "If that is not a recipe you found online you should share it on celiac.com". Then I told him I found it here! :lol:

I am wishing that it were either a little sweeter or less sweet and more savory. Next time I will try it with vanilla flavored almond milk since your recipe called for vanilla flavored rice milk. Or I will make it with plain homemade rice milk and use fresh herbs to make it savory. Also I have noticed that when I make baked goods with coconut milk they are very moist but don't rise as much. This a great soft bread but I wish it were a little more fluffy. It may be because of the milk or because I mixed by hand. It is the best I have made since being gluten free however. I love the crust that it has from the egg wash. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Simona, my husband is not home from work yet but I know he will like it, too. He was so happy when I showed him your photos! I agree with GFM - I would probably like it either more sweeet or more savoury (but I lean towards savoury as opposed to sweet, anyway, and that is such an easy thing to change!). That is not your fault - you did specify adding more sugar if you prefer sweeter. But as is it would make a great AP bread. I think I will also add in fresh herbs and roasted garlic next time (and I do that with many recipes anyway) but that is purely personal taste. It is very, very good. It is more dense than I thought it would be (but that could be because I used some sorghum in place of the white rice flour). Will try it without sorghum next time. Because there WILL be a next time! :D

It is definitely one of the very best gluten-free breads I have made. It is so worth doing! And it is not difficult at all so anyone could do it. I am so curious to see what the texture will be like tomorrow, too. This is truly very good bread and I would recommend it to anyone. I also love that it seems as though it could be very versatile (making rolls, pretzels as GFM suggested). And the aroma is yeasty and lovely.

Simona, thank you so much for this exciting adventure! Perhaps we'll have to bake together sometime! :P I think this will be my go-to homemade bread from now on. Congratulations on such a great job!

Thank you for compliments. I'm very happy that it came out prety good.

The second time around I substituted potato flour for tapioca. It was good, but it wasn't like the first time I baked. I made an apple cake from the same dough the third time around and it was perfect, soft. I still have two slices for today from it.

I like it also more sweet. In this tread I mentioned that you can use more sugar.

The dough would be good with any differtent spices or seeds. For the savory version add more salt and use only 2 Tbsp. of sugar.

I ended up making The potato beans soup for dinner. Here is the picture:

Simona, it is more than "pretty good" - it is VERY good! You should be very, very proud of your major accomplishment. Really and truly.

That soup looks delicious. Is it a Slovenian recipe? I am really enjoying our Croatian meals! We leave for Istria in two weeks and cannot wait.

Yes, it is. The original recipe calls for dry beans instead of canned which means that you need to cook it for long time until soft. I didn't have time for that- I never have time for that and I came up with this easy option. Everything is good where is garlic.

As for the meat in this soup the original recipe calls for smoked ham, kolbasy, bacon, hot-dogs, or mix of them. Some people will cook a smoked pork sholder and later they will chop meat into soup.

I'm trying to make my life easy and my recipes are always simple - Most of them. :lol:

I can say that we finaly finished the Challah that I made on Sunday. It wasn't without fight. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tomorrow I will bake another one. I will also make special cakes for my husband's party on Saturday.

I will post recipe from at least one cake later.

I'm happy....

    • https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ ^Newbie 101 section PS you are diagnosed celiac right? Sorry but a standard question as you should get the diagnosis out of the way before going gluten-free.
      https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ ^ Have a nice list of food alternatives, including condiments. NOTE we suggest a whole foods only diet starting off to boost healing. Also we suggest dropping anything with oats or dairy for the first few months. Oats some celiacs react to regardless of gluten-free or not, Dairy is broken down by enzymes produced by the tips of your villi, if your celiac these are normally damaged and cause digestion issues or intolerance to dairy.
    • Hi to any & all who read my post, and an advanced thank you to those who reply,        My post may be kind of robust & lengthily, but please read until the end if you are able. To give a sort of "back story" here, I'll explain my situation in a nutshell. In November of 2014 I was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance by my allergist after recurrent, severe mouth ulcers and a bodily rash. I had a blood allergy panel, but NOT a Celiac specific panel, which ruled out other food allergies completely - corn, pea, chickpea, chicken, tomato, egg, milk, etc. My allergist suggested a gluten-free diet, which I adopted & have been adhering to since then. Recently, I've been acutely sick since August of 2016, so we're talking a year plus now. My symptoms began with a burning abdominal sensation, pain after eating, premature and uncomfortable full feeling, bloating, etc. My internist referred me to my current GI doctor where I was diagnosed with GERD (chronic acid reflux) , and prescribed Omeprazole, which I still take daily. My next appointment in February had me still feeling awful & my GI doctor decided to perform an upper endoscopy, which I did in March. He was looking for ulcers, evidence of bleeding or infectious disease, and Celiac. Mind you, I had informed him that I've been eating strictly gluten free for almost three years now. He claimed this really didn't matter? This has left me wondering. Anyway, the results came up empty, but I was found to have evidence of gastritis. Then came the rest of my symptoms - frequent diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, extremely greasy stools, stools that float, mucus in stools, unable to "wait" to use the bathroom (I.e. Urgency), alternations of diarrhea and constipation, weight loss, low grade fever, EXTREME fatigue, poor concentration, memory loss, cognitive decline, and my mouth sores have reared their ugly head once again. After I first went gluten-free, the ulcers probably cleared up for a good year at least, which was heaven on earth for me. Now, they're back with a ruthless vengeance. As we speak, I've barely recovered from one for a day or so, and I'm down with two more. You can't even make this stuff up. After I addressed these new symptoms with my GI, he was concerned I may have had Crohn's Disease or Colitis, so he performed a colonoscopy, which ruled out both conditions through gross observation & biopsy samples. Since colonoscopies can only read so much of your colon & terminal small intestine, I then had a  PillCam to see the rest. The only results he could suggest was that I have a "slow bowel transit," so I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The umbrella term for all intestinal and abdominal suffering with no definitive cause.        Summary of my bible here is that I'm still suffering greatly. The intestinal issues are really giving me poor quality of life, and these pervasive mouth ulcers are more than I can bare anymore with the pain, inability to eat, weight loss, etc. it's all a sick and harrowing cycle that I am caught in the middle of. In saying this, I'm almost curious that I could have Celiac disease that was horribly missed. If I had already been gluten free & a biopsy was taken it would appear as though I'm a healthy individual, no? I was informed you had to be eating a strict gluten FILLED diet prior to ANY testing. ALL of my testing was performed after I already went gluten free, which could have altered results horribly.   I'm almost crazy enough to think that if this is the case, I'm going to eat gluten just so I can be re-tested because I can't go on like this anymore.    Can anyone please clarify and/or suggest something?
    • Interesting the Teflon was the substrate /material the gluten "stuck to" with a higher ppm of cc a synthetic man made versus an organic material iron . Based on her writing further exploration is not likely to get funding but perhaps from this preliminary finding if repeated celiacs in shared households should avoid teflon products.  My husbands bachelor pots and pans were a great set of stainless steel. Our wedding set of dishes mostly have broken.  I purged all pre diagnosis wood , plastic, and and old or very used ceramic and with my son and I both affected the household went completely gluten free.  I wish the budding scientist much success, but hope she followed her own data and ditched all teflon.    
    • Yikes!   Yes!  I will correct.  Thank you. I am so used to being GLUTEN FREE!
    • Maybe you should consider a bone marrow biopsy.   Your hematologist might be on to something.  At least it would rule out several things.  Based on this link, it could be related to SIBO or another AI issue.   http://www.medicinenet.com/neutropenia/article.htm Another possibility is Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or Mastocytosis.  That could explain the WBC, low BP, fatigue, etc.   A bone marrow biopsy is used to diagnose mastocytosis.    https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/blogs/entry/1931-mast-cell-activation-syndrome-madness/ https://tmsforacure.org/overview/
