Gluten-free bread hunt

February 11, 2012

I’ve been searching endlessly for a gluten free bread recipe. Every recipe is so different that it makes me worry there isn’t a right one out there. I’ve bought all the different type of flour: almond, gf (gluten free) all purpose, gf wheat, tapioca, coconut, almond, and xamtham gum. But it always seems that every recipe always calls for that extra ingredient that I haven’t thought of like, potato starch, soya flour, psyllium husks, corn flour, club soda, ect. I’m never going to eat bread.

I did stumble upon a pumpkin muffin recipe that I had the ingredients for and thought I’d give it a try. I half it in case I hated it. I should have done a fraction of that. I followed the directions exactly except for substituting the eggs with ground flax seed. It’s a recommended substitute. Don’t ask me how or why. Oh and I substituted the butter for a little margarine, applesauce, and olive oil. Eek and raw sugar for regular sugar. So maybe I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, but it shouldn’t have created the monster I pulled out the oven. The recipe said to bake for 25 minutes. I baked if for 50 minutes and it was still goo inside. It didn’t burn it was just straight up pumpkin goo inside. What a disappointment.

But I’m not the type to give up. So I cut those muffin zombies in half and opened them up to bake again on the goo side. I will prevail. It’s 2pm and I haven’t had breakfast so I’ll let you know how it goes.

Since I was worried about what happened with my muffins I asked the friend who recommended the diet if she substituted eggs when baking. She said and I quote, “When I did the diet, I did it strictly since I did not want to do it again (by not getting good results because I fudged). So I didn’t use anything from a bag box or can except for rice cakes. So, no I didn’t. Up to you though.” Bitch. Seriously? I asked her about canned pumpkin and she said you can get them fresh at Safeway now. Well if I wasn’t discouraged before. Even though she has helped me so much with my health I liked it better when I thought I was being strong and beating all odds even with my few slip ups. Guess not.

Forget about the pumpkin muffins and pumpkin chili I made. Back to brown rice and chicken. Back to bleak.

Oh and the muffins still didn’t bake.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
