Well, I have been venturing into gluten-free bread land. The first attempt was an epic fail and it was only 1 1/2 inches high. Ya, not something my kids want to take to lunch. Although if you slather enough apple butter on anything it tastes good, so we ate some with apple butter.
When I purchased my first loaf at the store, it looked like pound cake to me. And when I made a sandwich for my son, it looked pretty small. The main purpose for me to make this bread is to allow the kids to have a sandwich in their lunchbox. Who knew going gluten-free would be such a pain find a GOOD bread recipe? And by good I mean tasty!
Any-who...I have spent way to much time on way to many blogs looking for the perfect bread recipe. This recipe rose all the way to the top of the pan, so I call that a success in itself. Sure beats my flat loaf that I made previously. I really should have taken a picture of that! It was quite sad.
I left it resting upside down on the cutting board to cool. I think it's easier to cut straight slices without bread crumbling when you cut from the bottom. I could be totally wrong, but I swear it works for me.
I let the boys taste test it when it cooled. My oldest son asked for some peanut butter on his. He started raving about it, and said that it's way better than the store bought kind. My youngest son had his with some peach jam. He raised his eyebrows, gave a loud "mmmm," and said "this one's awesome!" So, I guess we have a winner.
Where did I find this delicious gluten-free bread recipe? I was searching various gluten-free blogs and this one stood out to me because of the title of the bread. I saw "Tender High Rising Gluten Free Sandwich Bread" and knew I found EXACTLY what I was looking for. It's an adapted King Arthur Flour recipe. Find this recipe and more at Barefoot In The Kitchen blog. You will not be disappointed. I think I just found myself another great blog to follow! :)
