Baking mad

This week I have been making the most of being on holiday from work. This has meant lots of time for indulging in my passion for cooking. If you didn't already know, I am a coeliac. This means that I am allergic to wheat and gluten and rules out a lot of food that you find in your local supermarket. Over the years I have got used to not being able to eat fresh bread from the bakers but sometimes I just cannot resist the urge to walk past the bakery to enjoy the smells coming from the bread ovens.

I like to think of myself as a half decent baker but after many attempts to create something vaguely resembling bread I had given up and focused on my attentions on cakes and crumbles. A few weeks ago, however, I received a delivery of Gluten free foods from a friend. Within this box of delights I came across some gluten free bread mixes. I was sceptical at first but this week I took a chance on the bread mix......and it paid off!

Pictures: top: my first focaccia, middle: traditional loaf and mini buns, bottom: my bread creations cooling down. 

I think they look pretty good and they certainly taste delicious....especially with some good raspberry jam! :)

I'll be back again soon with more pictures and baking stories.
