I realized that I forgot to right salt in the ingredients. I fixed the recipe.

I hope that people would make this recipe the right way.

Any gluten-free recipe you can form with your hands rather than spread wins my vote! I am making this tomorrow.

I just baked this. I divided dough in half. From one part I made a small Challah in bread pan with only three braids and from another I made an apple cake.

Thank you for the compliments. I understand the pain that we feel when we see something in store, or bakery that we were able to eat, and now we can just watch. If I make something that is good, really good I will share it right away with you guys.

P.S.: If you like to have sweeter Challah, add 2 more Tbsp. of sugar.

That looks wonderful! Question, do you think I can make this if I don't have a stand mixer? I only have a little hand mixer. Is the dough very hard to mix? Would it burn up my motor on my little hand mixer? I am very tempted to try. You are making some amazing things!

I think that you would burn the motor. The dough isn't very hard, but the hand mixer wouldn't survive.

I didn't have stand mixer before neither, and I tried to find the ways how can I make things without the expensive stand mixer.

My suggestion is:

Proof the yeast. Put all dry ingredients in bowl and strain them few times through strainer for pasta. Mix Eggs and margarine with hand mixer for 1-2 minutes.

Mix all ingredients together with hands for about 5-7 minutes and continue with the recipe.

Enjoy!

Thanks! Perhaps I will try that method to make this bread. I am hoping to get a stand mixer for Christmas this year so if I have to I can wait to do it right. :)

You will find that a stand mixer makes ALL the difference in gluten-free bread making. If you like making pasta I highly recommend the pasta attachment (if the mixer is a KitchenAid).

Hi! Did you made the Challah? If yes, how was it? Today is Tuesday and mine still soft. If you didn't like it, what do I need to change to have a better recipe?

Simona, I intended to make it yesterday but I had a lot of pain (chronic back pain). However, I see my chiropractor and have a nice long massage scheduled for this afternoon. So, I am definitely going to make it tomorrow. I also plan to do a lot of canning and making jams, etc. because we had to pick all our veg and herbs because of frost. Can't wait!

I'm glad your challah is still so soft. I am very excited about this recipe and will be sure to post my experience with it. :)

I also did not get a chance to make it. I don't have enough brown rice flour. My gluten-free store that I was getting it from went out of business and I have only been able to find Bob's Red Mill flours. So I had to order some online. I have everything else (except the stand mixer). As soon as I can I am going to try to make it. Will be watching this thread for Love2travel's experience. :)

Simona, my Simona Challah Bread is now rising! I did not have a chance to make it yesterday, either, but today was the day. I cannot tell you how wonderful it felt to form the bread rather than spread it out into a pan. It wasn't sticky at all. I subbed some sorghum flour for some of the white rice flour - will see how that works. I also love using bacon fat (for rubbing the dough). It looks so lovely. Cannot wait to try it - will post results very soon. :) It was such a pleasure to make and I bet it will be even more of a pleasure to eat! :P I've busily been making lots of preserves and am itching to try them with the bread.

Just a quick note - the recipe calls for a stick of margarine but does not mention when to add it in. As I am a baker I knew but for those new to baking it would be helpful to mention that in the original directions. :)

I hope your Challah would come out perfect. Today is Thursday and mine still soft. I made French toast from it for lunch today. I had finally tasted real French toast with maple sirup. :) :)

Ooo, I mixed margarine (unsalted) together with everything at once. I wanted to make a very simple recipe. Mix everything and bake. :D :D When I baked from regular flour before, the last thing that I added into dough was butter. Now... I did it this way.

French toast - awesome idea! I was thinking of making a butterscotch French toast and this bread looks like it would be perfect. It looks so good rising. I will cry tears of happiness if it tastes as good as it looks - I see other possibilities for this dough such as cinnamon rolls. A savoury version would be awesome, too, for things such as bruschetta. Simona, I think you have a hit on your hands. I really do.

I just came to post that mine is rising as well! I had to make a few changes. I used corn starch in place of the arrow root and coconut milk in place of the rice milk. For margerine I used Earth Balance dairy free and soy free spread. I mixed it all up by hand and then formed it. This dough smells like a soft pretzel dough to me. I think I might use this same recipe to try to make soft pretzels next. It smells heavenly and I have not even baked it yet! :)

I'm waiting by the computer for any reply about your baking like a small baby for a piece of cake after dinner.

I was struck by the smell myself. OMG!!!! It's our "miracle bread'???? I hope... B) B)

I'm practically pacing waiting for it! Thirty minutes to go before I tear into it.

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

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
