Goddess Bread and a Day of Discovery

Another gluten-free bread baking success—Delicious Gluten-Free Bread from the Gluten-Free GoddessIf I am doing my math right—and let me warn you, I mentally checked out of that subject during my first year of algebra—it was 519 years ago that Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas and what a discovery! Can you imagine? Well today I made a little discovery of my own, not as monumental, but one that made me jump and kick my heels, nonetheless.

Those of you who tune in regularly know that I have been on a bit of a bread kick. Maybe it's the onset of fall—cool mornings, a cup of coffee and cravings for cinnamon toast. A few weeks back I tried Ginger Lemon Girl's Vegan Gluten-Free Crusty Bread—a tasty rustic number. Today I discovered Gluten-Free Goddesses Delicious Gluten Free Bread. The two things I love about this recipe are 1) Karina designed it to be made using a bread machine and 2) it's not only gluten-free, but egg-free and dairy-free as well! Karina suggests the step of finishing off this loaf in an oven. I had planned to do that, but shortly after throwing all the ingredients in the bread machine we decided to head down to Ft. Collins for the day. On our drive home this afternoon, with the anticipation of Colombus, I wondered what I would find in my bread maker. A rock? A half-baked glob of dough? Well I was tickled to discover a lovely loaf, no, a beautiful loaf of bread. I may not have discovered a continent today, but I'm quite pleased with what I've found. Thank you Karina!

Wow! That loaf of bread was made in a bread machine?? Amazed! It looks so good! Yet another reason that a bread machine is on my Christmas wish list. :)

Yes indeed-y! I ALMOST cast my Cuisinart Bread Machine in with our pile of garage sale goods. So glad I didn't. I thought there was no need for it anymore. I had written off bread baking after going gluten-free. Ha! And bonus, when I pulled it out of storage I realized it even had a "gluten-free" mode! Woo hoo!

Man, you are a lucky duck. If I had left for the day with bread in my bread machine, I would have surely come home to a rock!! LOL I seem to not have much luck with that silly machine. This bread looks amazing! I cannot believe that there are no eggs in it! What a great job - you had quite the successful Expedition. This may not be the new continent, but you are well on your way to discovering your own gluten free baking microcosm....

Hey Kim! Welcome home. Hope you had a great weekend in SF. I couldn't believe it either. This bread may not have the perfect storebought shape, but the taste and texture are totally there.

So beautiful, Lexie! Looks like you have landed in the good bread karma land these days ... with the help of some friends who have gone before you, of course. ;-) Marvelous job, my dear. I have to confess I've never used a bread machine or made traditional gluten-free bread ...



Hi Shirley, As always, thank you for your words. You are so good to all of us. Keeping us encouraged.

Gorgeous Lexie! I am now following you blindly my friend, since you are way ahead of me in the GF/DF/EF game!

I guess I need to dig out the bread machine from my kitchen gadget graveyard in the garage!



Hey there! So what are you avoiding now? GFCFEF? Or just GFCF? Or just ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ, HA! Talk about a kitchen gadget graveyard in the garage ... I get to turn part of my garage back into pantry overflow ... the weather is getting cold so that I means I have a second fridge again! I learned the other day that "dairy free" does not always mean a food is "casein free." Interesting. Hence, since Miles is on the GFCF diet and that's kind of how I cook, I have changed my tagline to read "casein" free instead of dairy-free. The Casein protein, as you know, is very difficult to digest and aside from lactose causes GI distress in some. And if you have a leaky gut, it's the casein that tags along with the naughty gluten -- enters the bloodstream, goes to the brain and can have an opiate effect ... sleepy, brain fog, rocking and banging of head (as seen in some on the autistic spectrum). So fascinating. And so much why I believe ASD kids should do a trial GFCF diet to see if it can help. Nuf said ... if I did not get any of that right, please, anyone call me out. Though we do not have ASD in our home, I do feel we need to be giving our son foods that will benefit his brain function/development rather than hinder it. GFCF makes sense to me.
