Go-To Gluten Free Loaf
Lesley Collins from Me and My Thermie is always playing around with bread recipes. Any newly diagnosed Coeliac will always identify with this need to find a great bread... but this one is Lesley's favourite so far. It’s free from gluten / nut / dairy and xanthan gum and can be made with either whole eggs or just egg whites.
Recipe Tester Feedback: "This was my first go at making gluten free bread and I was a bit daunted by the number of ingredients, some I hadn’t used before. However, once I had everything I felt more confident. The bread turned out beautifully. The taste was great and I liked it even more toasted." - Marie
