I think that I've finally found a bread that I can eat with sanwiches!!! Normally I'm not a fan of homemade bread. I can usually taste the yeast in homemade bread and it permeates my senses. so I stay away from it. However, since going GF I've tried different store bought bread, which is usually dry and flavorless (the rice bread I once bough tasted like sandpaper). I've even tried making some from scratch, which was a total debacle. However, it's been many months since I tried and so I wanted to give it another go (If at first you don't succeed try, try again).
Anyway, tonight I made the bread above. I bought it last night when I went to the store for some potato starch for my cake and figured that I was willing to risk $5 for a decent sandwich (eating GF is not always cheap, but sooooooo worth it when your body starts to feel better). Below was the result of my tenacity:) It's a hearty bread in texture, so it won't fall apart in my hand as I bite into a overloaded ham and turkey, or tuna with onions and pickles (hey if I'm already gonna kill my breath with the tuna I might as well go for the whole thing). It also was a very moist and doughy bread. One thing with most premade GF bread is that it can be very stiff and dry. So that each time I try to take a bite I need to follow it up with a drink of water right away. Last but not least, I taste no yeast in it!!! I'm really happy that I decided to spend the money:) Now all I need to do is give it the toast test. Another aggravation with GF bread is that it doesn't toast nicely. I like mine a little on the crispy side with some peanut butter and cocoa. Thus far in my quest for the perfect bread I have yet to come across a bread that gives a nice golden color for toasting. Given the fact that so many of my other qualifications have been met, my hopes remain high.
