I love bread, my other half calls it my drug of choice, the trouble is I don’t work well with Wheat. Coupled with the intense memories I have of baking bread with my mum means that I find it very hard not to bake and eat bread. Hence my search for the perfect gluten free home made loaf. This is a good gluten free recipe, it makes a nice bread and is even nicer toasted and piled with lots of butter makes a lovely start to the day coupled with a really good coffee!. Note the 2 Tsp of salt in the recipe as I find that shop bought gluten free bread tends to be low on flavour.
